Is it POSSIBLE to create even more anticipation for your next Disney Vacation?
I dare say, YES!
Something so easy and inexpensive really shouldn’t be allowed.
1. Raid the dollar store and target dollar section to find little Disney trinkets.
2. Don’t forget to start it all off with some magic PIXIE dust,
and the traditional but never boring, paper chain countdown…
I searched high and low
for ideas on Disney countdowns,
but nothing beat
the good old classic.
I did jazz it up a bit by writing
some fun Disney facts
on each chain.
Here is another cute one
with activities instead of facts.
3. NOW go find your best, or most available little helper and start making some number tags.
I used my circle punch in two sizes, some polka-dot stickers and some fun twine to tie them to the package. Why is it that twine always makes something simple look so adorable?
(I LOVE all the fun colors the Twinery offers!)
Wrap your trinkets, add your tags, and feel the anticipation EXPLODE!!!
Then have fun unwrapping one little gift each day until you leave for your Disney Vacation! Or if you are driving, you could pull these out at certain landmarks along the way until you get there.
These ideas could be used for any vacation, my next one just happens to be Disneyland.
NO, I CAN’T WAIT!
YES, this countdown is mostly for me.
Some other fun little trinket ideas:
travel toothbrush, matching disney t-shirts (not so trinket-ish, but fun), glow sticks for the night parades, flavor packets for your bottled water, plastic rain poncho (for the water rides or just in case), little book and a pen to collect character autographs, map to find all the hidden mickeys…
What are your favorite tips, tricks or trinkets for your Disney Vacation???
