Good morning, MWers! I need your help! My cousin, Laura, grew up with me going to DL with our grandparents. She is SUCH a fantastic person and has recently quit her job to go back to school full-time to pursue her dream of becoming a studio singer (last night she sang on Oz the Great and Powerful!! So she's on her way!!) However, at the moment she's flat broke and helps my mom out with her bookkeeping for extra money. She loves Disney as much as I do and we've had the chance to go only once together as adults--I was happy to buy her a ticket. Anyway, I really want to surprise her tonight by buying her an AP!! Her birthday is Dec 2nd. She's driving down today from school to visit us and has no idea that I'm gonna do this. I'd love some suggestions for how to go about surprising her...any CM's (or anyone!) have any good stories or thoughts?? Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance!!
Wow, what an awesome family member/friend you are! I could always pop out of the bushes wearing my banana costume and make up a song and dance then had her the pass then run off into the sunset - Dave   13212.1 #2 11-16-12 10:51AM Like(13)  Reply
Aw, could you? I'm sure she wouldn't be freaked out or anything ;) - MissMolly  1319.4 #119 11-16-12 11:03AM
Do it! - PrincessDuckie  859.9 #203 11-16-12 11:15AM
just make sure she does not have any sharp objects that could be used to stab me or poke my eyes out - Dave   13212.1 #2 11-16-12 11:21AM
She'd actually think it'd be hilarious. She's cool like that. - MissMolly  1319.4 #119 11-16-12 11:21AM
We'd just need someone standing off to the side to take a pic of the reaction on her face - MissMolly  1319.4 #119 11-16-12 11:21AM
If this happens, this needs to be recorded! - Armenda  1154.7 #145 11-16-12 11:27AM
what have I gotten myself into again. - Dave   13212.1 #2 11-16-12 11:30AM
Nothing too big, the normal shenanigans! - Armenda  1154.7 #145 11-16-12 11:42AM you get yourself into this situation a lot, Dave? haha - MissMolly  1319.4 #119 11-16-12 11:43AM
not really in all honesty. I'm pretty mellow LOL...BTW I responded to you but you don't have your DM set up so Its on your MouseTopia - Dave   13212.1 #2 11-16-12 12:40PM
Is this all talk or is it really going to happen? My favorite part is running off into the sunset, that's so random - philliprocks  1176.5 #138 11-16-12 12:58PM
Phillip- I thought you liked long strolls on the beach, no? - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5646.6 #17 11-16-12 1:15PM
oh yeah! that would be awesome! - OhanaPhoto  3810.5 #34 11-16-12 3:05PM
Ok, guys I have an update! Laura is here in the next room...I bought her pass online and am gonna wrap it up like a present for her birthday. The plan is that I'll ask her to come to dinner somewhere in DTD, ya know for the "atmosphere" and some made up story about a scarf I left there yesterday. Then I'll have her open her present and try to film it for you guys! And of course, we'll then come marching right in to DL or DCA :) Everyone who wants to, come say hi to the newest AP member! I'll update on the timing...Hopefully we can go to the Cove bar. She's never been there either. Thanks everyone for your suggestions!! - MissMolly   1319.4 #119 11-16-12 3:42PM Like(4)  Reply
She is gonna FREAK OUT you guys :) - MissMolly  1319.4 #119 11-16-12 3:42PM
Wahoo!! Awesome! - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5646.6 #17 11-16-12 4:04PM
Well, regardless of what happens, I think we need a meetup at the Cove Bar this evening to celebrate! - MissMolly   1319.4 #119 11-16-12 11:51AM Like(2)  Reply
Yes - Mouse4life  1293.1 #123 11-16-12 12:29PM
I'm really thinking the singing banana idea is the best in this situation. - ambermarie   96.9 #3543 11-16-12 3:54PM Like(1)  Reply
Yeah, what happened to the singing banana? Great gift, have fun! - ShariRenee  6394.4 #15 11-16-12 3:58PM
I surprised a good friend a few years ago by making him wear a blindfold and headphones with his favorite music playing. We picked him up at Cal State Fullerton, then put both on immediately. We took both off when he was right between the two parks and facing the Disneyland entrance. That worked really well! He loved it and had a lot of fun. I hope that helps a little - have fun surprising your cousin, I hope it works out well! - BelleintheTARDIS   258.8 #1208 11-16-12 10:28AM Like  Reply
Thanks, that's a great idea :) - MissMolly  1319.4 #119 11-16-12 10:33AM
You are something special. You really are. She is going to love this. Is there any way you could get the AP before you go in tonight? (I was able to go to DL with my cousin in February. We had SUCH an awesome time. We had talked about it for years. ) - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint   5646.6 #17 11-16-12 10:33AM Like  Reply
Yeah, i was wondering if I could call and order it and have it waiting with a specific CM at the booths or something...then maybe pretend like I was gonna get her a day pass and then the CM could say that there's been a mistake or something, etc etc. Just can't quite figure it out! - MissMolly  1319.4 #119 11-16-12 10:39AM
And thanks for the compliment, HMACIF!! :) - MissMolly  1319.4 #119 11-16-12 10:40AM
I would try calling. This kind of stuff is right up DLR's alley. - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5646.6 #17 11-16-12 1:16PM
You can buy it online, can't you? - bluefairy  643.3 #293 11-16-12 1:30PM
Your amazing. However you give it to her she will be grateful. - philliprocks   1176.5 #138 11-16-12 11:14AM Like  Reply
Thanks, Phillip! You rock. Heh heh - MissMolly  1319.4 #119 11-16-12 11:44AM
Do any CM's know if there's a way to have the pass ready for me at DL? Like they could hand it to her instead of a 1 day admission and it would already have her name printed on it? If not, I'll totally go the banana route :) - MissMolly   1319.4 #119 11-16-12 11:30AM Like  Reply
Why don't you print out a "fake" AP and write something on it like "Good for One AP" instead of her name or write it on the back. Then turn it in like a coupon to get the actually AP. It's a way to show her what's going on and give her something. - Laurakatiepie   166.7 #2399 11-16-12 11:36AM
You are so kind! Your cousin is going to be thrilled. I really hope Dave can do a song and dance for her. That would be so cool! - DisLUVney   607.8 #313 11-16-12 11:39AM Like  Reply
