    Talking Wacky Clan in the CASTLE!

    Hi all!

    I am playing messenger because I am just too excited... Ian (WDWacky) just called me from WDW to tell me that he and the family just won a night in the castle!!!! How cool is that?!!? They are staying there tonight, I believe... he's off dealing with the details. So I am expecting some very cool and very detailed trip reports from him, hopefully very soon! (And LOTS of pictures!)

    Stay tuned!

    Talking



    That was me when it happened ...

    I don't actually have much time to post, because they're coming to pick us up in like 45 minutes but I'll give what detail I can ...

    So this was one of those things where like 1,000 different things happened to lead to this point. We were supposed to meet friends of ours down here today and we couldn't decide where to meet them. At the last minute, we switched to Animal Kingdom.

    So then our friends were late meeting us there and we missed the first ride on Everest. We had to get fastpasses. Our friend wanted to ride the Safari, so we did that. Stopped at the bathroom twice, got held up right as we were about to get on the ride so they could let some standby people on ...

    Anyway, all this resulted in my being in the fourth seat on our Everest train when it pulled back into the station. I immediately saw the Dream Team there and noticed they were looking right at me. I thought maybe we had won dream fastpasses, but I wasn't sure because they didn't seem focused on anyone else ... just me.

    When I got off the woman introduced herself and said, "I'd like you to meet Paul from our Dream Team. He has some exciting news for you ... "

    So he says to us, "Is this your whole party?" and we're like no ... our kids and our friend are down by the monkeys. He's like, "Well let's go get them! You may have won a prize!"

    So we had to walk allllllllllll the way down to get the kids and then allllllllllll the way back to the ride. So there's like four of them there and they pull out this DVD player ... let's see what you've won!

    So they turn it on and ... it breaks. It's skipping and jumping around and we're like what the heck did we win??? Finally it comes up and says, "A Stay "

    And it freezes again and we're like a stay where?? I thought maybe we had won a free trip or a resort upgrade or something. After about 10 seconds it comes up, "In Cinderella's Castle!!" and we're like AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

    So they take us back to this VIP lounge at DInosaur and we fill out all the paperwork and stuff. They're totally treating us like VIP's ... moving around reservations for us, offering to get us into shows and stuff ... bringing us sodas and stuff ... taking our pictures ... they were so nice!!

    So now we're back at the hotel. We have to pack up and they're going to come pick us up at our hotel at 2PM and take us over to be Grand Marshals in the parade. After that I'm not sure what comes next ... I know we have dinner at the Castle at 6PM and we get VIP viewing for Spectromagic and Wishes ... beyond that though it's all a big mystery!

    I'll take TONS of pictures and write up a full detailed report when I come back!!

    Thanks for the well wishes everyone!!
