    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! :bounce:

    Thanks again and I look so forward to more! :Pinkbounc

    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? :confused:

    We received special attention everywhere! :goodvibes
    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! :goodvibes

    I agree with Steffy, word for word! :lmao: :rotfl2: My DD 6 wanted me to use these smilies.

    It is so cool to read your TR in your words, not from the news, keep it coming.

    You know thinking of going back to the resort for the night, makes me remember finding a new "something" in our room when we return. ;)
    When we arrived earlier in the day, one of the surprises was a few welcome gifts! :thumbsup2 I remember the looks on the kids AND DH's face when they saw the wonderful things that had been given to us. There were beach towels for the kids along with a WD lunchbox full of goodies! :banana: There was a WD bag for both my husband and I, along with a photo album and Mickey ears for us all-complete with our names on the back of them! :earsboy: :earsgirl:

    But as my husband walked to the table, there were two (stemware) glasses, a bottle of Evian, and a gold-wrapped box that had the GF Spa embossed on the top...all put together with gold string. :goodvibes
    When we opened the box, inside was a box that was made from dark chocolate that had chocolates inside! It doesn't get any better than chocolates inside chocolate!!! :teeth: :teeth: :teeth:
    It was just a wonderful touch of class!

    Well, we all just crashed...DS was thrilled to be going to MGM in the morning...It's his favorite park!!! :wave:

    Some questions, what was your room like at the GF? did you visit the concierge lounge?

    Was disney driving you around in the towncars I see them use for VIP's?
