Congrats!

Thank you so much for sharing! I just stumbled upon this thread a little while ago - after hearing about the contest and seeing your video just yesterday!

Can't wait to hear more!

Not only is it nice that you won - but each of us has "won" as well - through this wonderful trip report. Thank you for including us, it sounds like the trip of a lifetime.

This is so much fun! So did you have to actually wait in lines? Did your VIP guide stay with you for everything?

MinnieRocks - Thank you so much for posting your trip report. You're doing a wonderfully perfect job with all the right kinds of details. Your DH was so right that this was beyond what could even be dreamed of! All the rest of us DISers are very fortunate to be IN on more of your dream come true than just what was shown on TV!

Thanks again and I look so forward to more!

Kris

Is there any place online that will show the video of your family doing their thing? I totally missed this on TV and have no idea where to find it. Can anyone help?

No lines for us...it was either Fastpass or back doors

and Joey met us in the morning at the resort, was with us all day, and dropped us at the resort when the day was done...He was a blast!!!

We received special attention everywhere!
And one of the things that really impressed me was that everyone (and we met a lot of Disney employees) was so excited to meet us and do their part to make us feel special. To be able to thank each and every one of them was awesome for us!
