The Disney Scavenger Hunt


Happy Monday Folks! We skipped doing the "Peek in Our Week" yesterday because we were still visiting with friends & family and celebrating the season!  However, we thought we would share one of the fun things that happened on Christmas.  After we did our gift exchange with our family on Christmas morning, our parents had one last gift for my sister and I. They took us upstairs to one of the spare bedrooms and when we opened the door we saw my parents had set up a Disney Scavenger hunt for us.

Ever since my sister and I announced that we would be running the Disney Marathon ( and Goofy Challenge), our dad had secretly been buying us Disney merchandise!  The spare room was full of Disney merchandise and attached to the back of each item was a Disney gift card with one of our names on it. We had to guess which item we thought belonged to each one of us. That part was pretty fun.  We wish we would have taken a picture of the room before we started the hunt, but we didn't.
Yea, maybe this little activity seemed like it was suited more for little kids, but whether you are age 5 or 35, it was still fun for Disney lovers such as ourselves!

 Since we will be visiting Disney at least three times in 2015 these gift cards will definitely come in handy.  Not only do we have enough "Disney Cash" but our parent's also got us started on our park souvenirs. I can now say I have my first official Disneyland souvenir too! 

A Big Thanks to our parents for being so creative!

Have you ever made a "Scavenger Hunt" gift for anyone?

  1. Cute idea by your parents and that sure is a HUGE stack of gift cards for you both. I remember when I was a kid, my parents did a scavenger hunt on Easter morning for our stuffed animals. It was really fun!

  2. What a cute Christmas present idea! Last Christmas in anticipation of Marathon Weekend, Preston and I received a bunch of Disney gift cards. They definitely came in handy while shopping for official race merchandise!

  3. I love that count down clock. Cute! I suggested to my mom that gift cards would come in handy for me, but alas, none under the tree. Got a lot of other fun stuff tho.

  11. Wow! Your parents are awesome! Love that they made it fun. :) My parents do something similar where we have to guess which gift is for which person, but generally it's easy because it's usually snack/treats and we all have our own preferences. :)
