I've been more of a lurker than a poster but I had to say how much I am enjoying your TR. This has got to be the thrill of a lifetime to win a trip to Disney! I can't wait to read more and I totally understand your anxiety when you had not heard from the folks at Disney. You have much more patience than I would have had. I think I would have been calling every other day!

You can go with DW and I anytime! I love trying something new each trip, whether it is a tour, a ride, an event or a restaurant!

I can't imagine the wait you had to go through. I know I would be very anxious to find out the details and everything. I would probably be calling them a lot to find out the information. I'm that you called because things might not of gotten out if you hadn't.

One of the "groupies" started a pre-TR over the summer, but never completed anything afterwards. However, you can at least read about her win here:

I Promise No One is Dead!


Thanks so much for reading along.. I can't wait to share more!

I'm sure this week will go by fast for us -- We've been really busy lately with a backyard project going on at home, plus work has been a little crazy with trying to prepare my co-workers to cover for me. This trip and my previous WDW trip are the only times I've taken a whole week off work in the last 10+ years, so thank goodness for Disney!! I'm feeling like everything this week is going to be in fast-forward mode!


I hope you get your info quickly after your sweepstakes ends & you don't get stuck in eternal wait-around-mode like me!! I'm excited for you! I hope more winners come forward around here to share in your excitement & planning!

Jen-

What a great pre trip report. I wish I'd done one too. Maybe someday, I will do a post trip report.

Have an awesome time on your trip.

I totally forgot to tell you when the kids and I were in LV over Christmas break. I was so busy going to the quilt store, I forgot to try to meet up with you.

Hi Debby! I'm having so much fun with this trip report, but they are a lot of work!! No doubt if you ever wrote one, I'm sure it would be great because you're always making all of us laugh!

Aw, thanks for thinking of me ( even if it was afterwards ) for when you were in town Christmas-time is totally hectic & crazy, so I totally understand. I hope you guys had a nice time visiting your family!
