When I first got the idea to see if we could take "S" (Savanna) to WDW with us, I think my husband said I could ask her parents because he never dreamed they would say "yes." They said "yes" and a dream and a great Christmas morning surprise were born.
The gifts that Santa brings to our house are always found in the same place, on the hearth of the fireplace. This is where Jenna heads first. She looked over all the things that Santa had brought, he's quite the creature of habit at our house. She started to open her stocking and pulled out the traditional toothbrush, candy, jewelry, then something different, a WDW planner folder. She started to open the folder and then began to push aside the airline itinerary because she already knew we were going to WDW. I had to encourage her to look more closely. I had highlighted Savanna's name and she seemed confused for a moment, as if it couldn't possibly be true. When she caught on I knew at that moment I had chosen the right friend.
We are so excited about this trip. There is nothing like showing WDW to a newbie. Savanna and her family went Disneyland last summer and spent just one day at Magic Kingdom and automatically found the magic of the whole experience. My only regret about this trip is that we can't take Savanna's whole family. Look for trip reports while we're WDW right here on this blog. Also, in the coming days look for Savanna's response to the news.
Merry Christmas girls!!
