When I first started my reservation process and put down my down payment in September, I told the cast member to send any paperwork to my work address. My 13 year-old is very observant and one of his chores is to go to the mailbox every day. I couldn’t risk him seeing this once-in-a-lifetime surprise we were planning to reveal on Christmas day. After paying off our balance, I called again to make sure that our welcome package would not come to our home.
Guess what? It came to our home today. He saw it.
He didn’t open it, but he was asking all about it. To make matters worse, his buddy - whose parents aren’t keeping their separate trip a surprise - was showing off his welcome package the week before. So I’m more than slightly sure he knows what’s up.
I called and complained and warned them not to send ANYTHING ELSE to my house. The CM was very apologetic, but I’m still stuck with a ruined surprise.
It sucks because we never do big vacations. Cabin trips in the mountains, beach camping, and house boat once. We even chose to do the WDW thing instead of a 20th anniversary trip to Europe because the surprise was going to be so tremendous.
Sorry for the vent, but I know I’ll find some kindreds and maybe some rock-solid advice for putting up a cloud of confusion over this Disney flub.
