Family means nobody gets left behind..

This post is going out at Disney so as not to ruin the surprise for the members of the group who follow this blog!

So if you’ve read my blog, you know I put together goodie bags for the girls. This was well known by everyone (except the girls, obviously!), but what they didn’t know was that magic leaves out no-one..

So I put together goodie bags for everyone! And for these ones, I enlisted the help of the girls, they loved being part of the secret (we called it our ‘secret Disney mission’) 🙂

For the ladies, I found cute red and white spotty totes and filled them with treats like lip balm, nail files, cute Minnie phone socks etc, and park essentials: plasters, glow sticks etc.

The daddies got socks, headphones and Star Wars glow sticks wands packed up in handy reusable themed bag

On top of these, we had the most fun picking out phone cases for everyone!

Keeping it in the families, my parents and sister all had Toy Story ones, and my aunt and uncle had Winnie the Pooh 🙂

The difficulty with keeping all the goodie bags secret, however, was packing them up (which I managed to do by hiding the adult ones inside the kiddy ones), and getting rid of everyone for enough time to sneak them into the hotel rooms for the big reveal..

And herein lies the beauty of the secrets! While the adults know I need the girls out of the rooms, they don’t know that I also need them gone, so by creating a large distraction eg: let’s go look for the pool, and filling the girls in on the plan, both parties believe they are the ones keeping the secret, giving me the time to sneak into all the rooms to put out the presents, with a note from The Disney Fairy, and leaving everyone else none the wiser!
