Hi all,

As some of you might have heard, I've been in the running to win a Disney trip. Well, we finally heard the results.

My family and I will be enjoying our next vacation at a Deluxe resort -- concierge level, with dining plan, park hoppers, and many bonuses!! Six days of Disney bliss, something we never could have afforded!!!

Thanks to all who voted. I am on cloud nine right now!!


PS The planning begins soon.... and I'll need help! First accommodations...

I think I'd pick the Poly if given the chance! I've always wanted to stay there!

Wow, that is so awesome!!! I did vote for you but never got to see what the contest was about. Can you tell us what you had to do to win? I never did figure that out!

Kathy --- Congrats again on winning. So happy that I was able to help you.

:clappy::joy::party2: Congrats!! Its just so cool that you won!

Picking a deluxe resort, I'd go with Poly. We stayed at GF in March and it was very nice but didn't seem as kids friendly as the other resort!

Congrats again!!

Sent you a PM but I'll repeat it here:


I voted early & often for you and it paid off! I wish I had your trip planning problems! ;) I vote for the Poly as well, but a CR tower room with an MK view wouldn't be bad either!

We expect detailed trip reports....:D

Kathy, I'm just so happy for you! I've received several replies from people on my email list who voted for you and are very happy for you.

You'll have to let us know about some of the decisions you'll have to make. Do you get to choose from all the deluxes, for example?

I'm so happy for you, I could "POP"! To know somebody that wins is neat, but we were rooting for you the whole nine yards. I'm out of breath, and I haven't run to the end zone in years !

I'm so happy for you. I voted for you every day. I was on pins and needles waiting until today to find out. My mom and sis met you at the Intercot meet last year, and they say there isn't a more deserving person to win. Enjoy your trip!!

:congrats: from a fellow :tikki:

Do NOT pass up an opportunity to stay at the Disneyest of all Disney stays - Contemporary Resort MK view. You will NOT be sorry. It cannot be beat - it's the ultimate Disney experience. You can look out your room and watch the castle change colors at night. (Just my not-so-humble opinion.)

So happy and excited for you, Kathy.:minnie::

Looking forward to all the details!!:mpumpkin:

BTW.....GO RED SOX!!!:baseball:

There's a great,big,beautiful tomorrow
