The Best Christmas Gift Yet, A Trip Report

So, we did it. We gave our kids a Walt Disney World Getaway (and I say getaway because it was a very quick and very busy 4 days) just this past Christmas. Yes, we have surprised them before with a trip- once a few years back and it didn’t go well.

Our youngest was surprised Christmas morning, well sort of. I will explain later. Continue reading
