    Thanks for the heads up! I showed my kids this am. They are going off with their dad tonight so since I'll just be chilling at home by myself...I'll get my creative juices going and start my essay!

    Thanks for the info, but I can't get your link to work. I did a search on GMA's site and can't find anything on the contest there either. Any tips?

    It didn't work for me, either. Try searching "good morning america" "royal treatment".

    I have no idea,either, if anyone won yet, or if someone did win, they are sure keeping it very top secret! I'm hoping they are still judging the essays.
    According to the contest rules, GMA was supposed to announce the winner on their show this week, but I haven't heard them announce anything or anyone's name on the show nor their website. I even emailed GMA a couple of times and no response from the emails yet :confused3

    Please, if any CMs know anything with the GMA/ Royal Treatment contest inside scoop, please let us know here on this thread. Thanks!

    Or if anyone did get a phone call, email, get papers for the trip, please post here. TIA! I'm dying to know who won!

    I'm sure they've picked and informed the winner by now, but just haven't revealed it to the public yet. They have to make sure the family selected can travel during the time of there stay in the castle.

    Oh well, keep dreaming.

    The winner was to have been informed on the 14th of January. So they know who they are....they are probably at WDW right now staying at whichever resort was part of their package...and then get their night at the castle tomorrow.
