I won! I won! Disney trip! UPDATE: WE'RE HOME!

I can't believe things like this do happen...I signed up for the Macy's Celebrates Mom Sweepstake back in April and I am one of the grand prize winners. You should have seen me when they called me on Friday

I got a 5 night/6 day trip for 4 to BOTH Disneyland and DisneyWorld!!I got my airfare, ground transporation from airports to Disney, Disney Resort accomodations, VIP Experiences, $200 gift card to Disneyland and a $300 gift card to DisneyWorld.

This is definately legit, I've received all my paperwork and now just waiting for a Disney Rep to call me to scheduled my flights etc.

I had resented to the fact that there wouldn't be any more Disney trips with my family due to money. My DD asks every year if we could go Now I have a trip to DisneyWorld and also to be able to experience Disneyland too - oh my goodness!!

It will be a whirlwind of a week but I'm ready for it! We go in June

Thanks for letting me share my good news with you.

Congradulations.

THANK YOU EVERYONE!! I'm like a little kid

I am from Vermont and yes they picked a winner from each state. I was wondering if I'd see another winner here on the DIS.

I don't know yet where I will be staying...the winners names are being forwarded today to a Disney Representative and they will be in touch with us.

Oh my, I can't believe it!!
