Wow, finally!! Congrats!!

We need to know....when were you notified that you were the Jan. 5th winner? It was just today, right? Because they're really behind on picking the winners?

I know you probably have no idea what I'm talking about, but we really do need to know when you were notified!

I have been a DIS board lurker for about a year now....but since I am now literally dreaming about FedEx trucks I figure it is time to stop lurking and participate! Yesterday I got a call from a weird number during my Daughters Dentist appointment and still answered...sadly it was just Direct TV. I figured if it was a free trip to Disney my daughter would forgive me for answering the phone while she was getting her novicane shot

The whole story

Ok so here is what happened! I have been entering myself and my husband every day starting on the first. On the 8th I sat up in bed in the am and said "crap I forgot to enter yesterday. So I was bummed but headed out to start my day. I went to the grocery store and while unloading kiddos my phone rang. It was a 212 area code and I didnt recognize the number so I just ignored it! Ok here is the kicker in my head I thought "how awesome would it be if we won the diney trip hahahaha". So I went inside the store and when I got to Starbucks and ordered my coffee my phone beeped that I had a message. It was Ventura looking for my husband. SO in the middle of the grocery store I am shaking and call her back! She then sent an email with all the info and a fedex label to ship it back. We had to fill it out and it had to be notorized. We wonly have 5 days to do this or else we forfitted the trip. We sent it back the same day lol. We then recieved a call where she said all of our paperwork checked out and we did win! We then had to pick which park and the prize package. We picked WDW and the Big thrills outside of the park. They did not ask which hotel or dates yet! We got a email congrats letter today saying a disney trip coordinator would contact us in Feb! Hope that answered all of your questions!
