    Default I Won A Trip To Walt Disney World!

    Last week I entereted a contest on Twitter through Orbitz. You had to send in your best "Disney Travel Tip." I sent my tweet in with much hope and a lot of faith. Hoping that some pixie dust would fall on my family.

    This morning, I casually was browsing through my Twitter feed and saw my Twitter name right next to Orbitz's. I WON!

    If you visit Orbitz's blog you can read the announcement.

    "Let's tell you what i've won!" *in game show host voice*


    The winning tip: “WDW isn’t just for kids! Adults can enjoy golfing, spa time, fine dining, water sports, shopping, and behind the scenes tours!”

    That one sweet tweet earned @stacey87:

    • airfare for four
    • 7-night hotel stay in a Disney property
    • four 7-day Magic Your Way® theme park tickets with Park Hopper® AND Water Parks Fun & More options
    • $250 Disney gift certificate
    • admission to Cirque du Soleil® show for four
    • winner’s choice of spa treatment or round of golf


    I called up my husband who started freaking out. He asked if we could take our moms and of course I said, "YES!" My mom is still at work so I can't tell her until she gets out. I have a feeling she will pass out (hardy har har if you've read my latest trip report).

    I'll let you all know more details when I find out this afternoon. This could not have come at a better time. DH and I found out that we somehow OWE money back to the IRS even though we both have fairly low paying jobs. We've had a very rough past year in general and have been needing to get away together.

    Dream do come true...

    She JUST called me back and FLIPPED OUT. But, she flipped out even more when she caught on to the fact that she gets to go too! Haha! She can be so blonde sometimes!

    HAHA! My husband is sizeable compared to that scrawny French boy. He'd take him down.

    Got off the phone with my mom... she must have gotten my voicemail because the conversation started with, "OH MY GOSH!"

    She is a little blonde though and didn't catch on to the fact that SHE gets to go with us. Oh moms....

    Also got off the phone with Orbitz! They said they were so excited for me when reading my e-mail that they got teary eyed.

    I don't know details as far as the resort goes. It sounds like they try and put you in the highest that they can depending on availability. So, we'll see! It doesn't even matter to me. I'm so happy I don't have to pay anything! Haha!

    Orbitz also asks that I do a write-up for their blog and share photos from the trip. Why OF COURSE! My area of expertise.
