We are often asked about certain visits during hotel stays (Santa, Tooth Fairy, etc.) With a little bit of planning and partnering, these special visits can work seamlessly.
First, ask your hotel concierge (or front desk) what they suggest. You are not the first parent to face this dilemma. Hotel staff members are honored to help you commemorate this special time in your child’s life. They may be able to slip a note under your door during the night, call your room with a special message, or sneak in during the day while you’re at the parks. Staff availability will vary during the year, so be patient if they have limited services to assist.
We have helped celebrate these precious moments with, you guessed it, gift baskets! Parents have sent us gifts prior to the holiday; we wrap, deliver to the hotel, and leave with the friendly front desk for you to pick up when you’re ready. Parents have also requested that we do their shopping! Just send us the list, and we will accommodate to the best of our ability. We will work with you on delivery – we can leave with your front desk for you to pick up or we can arrange meeting with you directly to hand-off the goods! The sooner we plan, the better.
Of course, another option is to allow these special characters to do their thing at home! You can do a quick, secret set-up before you leave or ask a friend or family member to set it up while you’re gone. It will help make leaving Orlando a little less lousy!
