Haha! This is why I cant tell certain people in my family either - my auntie would not be able to keep it to herself for more than 5 minutes! 🤣

For us it's too much of a big thing and a luxury to just tell them. They watch their reveal all the time on YouTube! But I like them to know well on advance so they can build their excitement. That being said if they were small the wait would be too long. For this reveal it will be a tear exactly till we leave for the premier inn x
Oh wow, just watched your video and it was amazing! My DLP reveal video is only on my facebook, but we love watching their reactions over and over!

I dont think I dare do another treasure hunt - weve done two already, plus a picture-clue countdown, so I think theyd probably guess as soon as they got the first clue. Im thinking about becoming technologically competent* though, so I can copy your video idea!

*This is quite unrealistic for me, but you never know!

DS will be 8 and DD will be 3 when we go in August 2020.
DS can be quite anxious about things so we've learnt from previous experience not to spring things on him at the last minute.
We're planning on telling them on the first day of the school holiday which will be about 3 weeks before we go. Plenty of time to watch rides and waterparks on YouTube, and for me to get the cases out to start packing.
We're going to give them both a small box with a few bits and pieces for the holiday including a countdown chart.

It sounds like youll be there at the same time as us. Ive now gone from planning a last-minute reveal to deciding between telling them at Christmas (theyre old enough to cope with / understand the wait) or at the start of the summer holidays, same as you. Weve done that before, and it was perfect for building up the excitement, but without too long to wait (youngest was only 4 at the time.) I still want to do a last-minute reveal, but Ill save that for DLP.

I dont even pretend lol I'm definitely not technologically competent! Hence why it took me 14hrs! Yes 14 to make the video! I used vica video app normal people would do it quite quickly... lol

We gave our daughter a scratch card on her 17th birthday this year. When she scratched away the panel it said "We are off to Universal Studies Florida for Halloween Horror Nights" she loved it. X

The first time we went we picked up the grandparents en route to the hotel and revealed our plans then. They found it a little overwhelming. These days we have a countdown in the lounge for holidays and they both have countdowns on their phones too.
