I have no hints. All I can suggest is come here to vent and tell everyone ELSE about it.
We surprised the kids in 2003 and again last year. It was VERY difficult. In fact, the first year, I actually made a little mark on the calendar, almost giving them a hint. But neither of them knew it. It was an impossible clue anyway.
That’s how I got through it. But it’s not easy. Some days I just wanted to blurt it out.
Last year, DW and I got through it by having a little code song. Every time we were thinking about Disney, we’d hum the tune from Six Flags commercial. I know that seems kinda random… but we each knew what it was and the kids had no idea.
