Default Trip to Disneyland with Grandchildren

I'm going to Disneyland with my Daughter & her family. Meeting up w/ my Mom &
cousins & their families.... My DD kids have never been. (4 & 7)

We are trying to decide if we should tell them & how to tell them
or not tell them at all until they see Disneyland. We aren't going until Oct.

We are leaving on Friday after work, hotel stay in LV and then getting
up early the next morning to finish the drive.

We are staying across the street from Disneyland. So they will see it for sure when
we pull into hotel if not sooner.

What would you do? We thought about telling them were going to see
Great Grandma. (She lives in CA)
Thought about putting them in their new Disney shirts on Saturday morning
(I don't think they will get's a new shirt to them)

Would love to hear how you told your kids.

We have been talking about Disneyland for 2 yrs. They keep asking how much longer
we have to save our pennies so we can go.

Can't wait to hear ideas.

I would tell the kids because anticipation is part of the fun. However, I'd wait until just before the trip, maybe a week. You know the children so you would know what they could handle. I always told my kids before something big, but waited until I was sure it would really happen, and not too long so I wasn't inundated with questions!
