But somewhere in between all of this excitement, my husband and I surprised our kids with a super-fun, totally awesome Disney Surprise Scavenger Hunt!
That’s right–we’re heading to Disney this spring. And we’re thrilled.
We wanted to tell Maddy, Owen, and Cora in a way that made them work a bit, so we came up with a Scavenger Hunt. Nothing too crazy, but we wanted a hunt got them reading, thinking, and putting their heads (and feet!) together to figure out clues and learn about their trip.
Here’s the skinny. . .
- Disney Surprise Scavenger Hunt:
You can use this scavenger hunt whether you’re going to Disney World or Disneyland; it doesn’t matter.
Our goal was to give them an idea that they were going without outright telling them.
Check out our video for a closer look at how it went:
SO funny, right?
They seemed to have a blast!

Our Disney Scavenger Hunt includes things like:
- counting pennies for the number of days until our trip;
- doing jumping jacks and headstands;
- putting together Mickey sock puzzles;
- unscrambling Disney-related words: vacation, spring, suitcase, sunshine, and more;
- watching a Disney video on YouTube.
We’re really excited.
