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...


  1. YAY!!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! And you were just saying you wanted to plan another trip there soon! This is SO amazing!! It could not have happened to a better person! You have such a positive spirit and really share the magic with all of us. I am SO SO happy for you!

  2. Thanks so much, Ellen! I don't think it's actually set in yet. That I have a trip to plan and I don't have to worry about paying for a thing except food. I have chills about every five seconds. haha! I'll post pictures and will do a trip report of course!

  3. Can't wait to see your trip report and pics!!! ;) I really do think that good things happen to good people and am just sooooo excited for you and glad that you won!

  4. I'm gonna blog some details right now :)
