Howdy Disney Echo's!
Just looking for a little help here. I have 2 little ones that would be so excited if I could have a gift basket or even the shovel and pail that I have heard people talk about waiting in their rooms for them. Can anyone help me find out how to get them. I am more than willing to pay for them. I know nothing but a smile comes for free at Disney.

Disney's florist will do cute baskets for your kids. Unfortunately, they do not have a website. Their phone number is (407) 827-3505. They are extremely helpful when you call! Every post I have ever read about them is always glowing!
Another option is to do what I did -- I put together my own gift baskets and "snuck them in". At home I bought lots of little items and put them in a Mickey/Minnie beach bag. These items included: a fanny pack (Mickey Mouse, of course! sunglasses with straps (don't forget the straps!! a pressed penny book, an autograph book, a Disney guest of honor pin with their names on them (all of these items I ordered ahead of time and had shipped to my house)a new Mickey toothbrush, a tiny bottle of bubbles (to keep them busy while standing in line...worked great! a tiny "Dollar store" flashlight (to use in the "scary" rides), some Disney-themed candy, hair items, etc.
When we got to the room the girls excitedly ran around to check everything out. Daddy kept them busy looking out the balcony, I got the gift bags out, set them just outside our door, then knocked on the door. I scooted into the bathroom....Daddy went to the door with the girls to magically discover 2 bags with their names on them and notes welcoming them to Disney World.....
You know, I still don't think my dds know that I was the one that placed them there!!!
