Minnierocks...

Thanks so much for sharing your dream of a lifetime with all of us. The excitement of your trip is certainly conveyed in your posts. Can't wait to read the next one.

Congrats on the trip of a lifetime. It couldn't have gone to a nicer family.

Thank you so much for sharing your story. It's certainly a dream come true I was reading your trip report aloud to my wife, and I was choking up reading it.

Definitely a once in a lifetime, dream come true for you and your family. But we here on the DIS are just as lucky that you have taken the time to write and post your detailed trip report about the whole adventure. It's like you took all of us along for the ride!!! Disney did good picking such a wonderful family to win this "Dream", cause you have shared that dream with so many others right here and around the world!!

Thanks so much for sharing, and I echo all the others here with the "waterworks"! Wonderful writing!

And a shout out from those in Canada!!

If a family were hand picked, they could not have done a better job than the Spangler family! For you to take the time to share this dream with all of us is remarkable! We will be forever in your debt.

Minnierocks- This was a dream come true for you and your family. It is a dream come true for us that we get to "talk" to you and feel so close to the experience too! Thank you so much. I'm crying along with everybody else. I can completely feel your overwhelming joy thru this whole report..and that video!!! LOVE IT!!!! LOVE IT!!!!! And so happy your daughter had that beautiful exchange with Cinderella!!!!! She will never forget that! Your family seems so wonderful and kind. I am truely happy for you all. You were the perfect family to win! I feel like I know you all now! Do you feel like its sunk in yet? The enourmity of it all?? Whats it like being home now? Are you still floating on cloud nine, and how hard is it to get back to reality?? I hope the magic feels strong inside of you all for a very, very long time. I hope you can carry it with you forever! What a beautiful gift.

I was thinking the same, how could I be bawling like a baby over this!? Lol
Then I realized this is really our dream to do this. We all love Disney sooo much and reading Minnies trip report is kind of like a surrogate dream for us. LOVE IT! I am such a Disney dork and proud of it!!

Wow, this is awesome!

Minnierocks, was everything you ate, drank and purchased included in your prize? The way my crowd eats, Disney could fold in a day!! For example, if you decided you wanted a Mickey ice cream, you just got walked over and got it and maybe an hour later you wanted something else and it was magically given to you?? I was thinking I might feel uncomfortable with someone from the park walking along with us everywhere, but it sounds like "Joey" was the right guy for the job. I would probably be hesitant to ask for anything in particular if I thought it was going to be given to me, but I guess I could get over it real quick!
