How to Give the Gift of a Disney Vacation

Christmas is only 10 days away… how did that happen?

Still thinking about the perfect gift to give your family this year? The gift of magical memories is sure to delight everyone in your family on Christmas morning. Imagine the look on your children’s face when you reveal that they have been so good this year, Santa is sending them to Disney World! Or on a Disney Cruise! Anything you can imagine can be done with Disney Destinations!

So, Santa decides to book a trip and nobody else knows… How do you actually reveal a surprise this epic on Christmas morning? How does a vacation fit under the Christmas tree?

Here are a few of my favorite ideas to make the moment magical:


-Scavenger Hunt – Create your own Scavenger Hunt by creating clues that lead the kids all through out the house. They’ll have to figure out each clue until the end that reveals the big vacation.

This letter was at the end of a long scavenger hunt one Christmas morning many years ago. My family will always remember this special Christmas!



-Give a Disney-themed calendar as a gift with a countdown to your departure written on each day until you leave. You can write “We’re Going to Disney World!” or something similar on the month of travel!


We have this beautiful calendar featuring the artwork of Thomas Kinkade. You can find it here:


-Gifting your adult children with a family reunion vacation? Give each of the adults a Disney wine glass for a Christmas toast and cheers to the ears!

Disney Christmas Ornaments are available on the Disney Store website. They make great gifts to connect a Christmas surprise to your spring or summer vacation.


-Add helium balloons to a large box and tie a message on the end letting your kids know you are going to Disney. The balloons will go flying up adding the perfect element of surprise!



-Many photo websites such as will allow you to create a personalized puzzle. You can give each of the kids a few puzzle pieces in a gift box and have them complete it together.
