"Titok. Akkor nyisd ki, amikor egyedül vagy." (My variant emphasizes the required circumstances of the opening, not the opening itself.)

"Ne mondd el Toddnak. Ez egy meglepetés-parti." (I suppose the latter sentence explains the reason of the first request. I this context I'd use "parti" instead of "buli", but "meglepetés-buli" is also possible. When speaking about a secret we use rather "elmond", however, "megmond" is also correct.)
