Disney World, Here We Come!!!

As you may know, I enter contests for about 30 minutes every single morning because someone has to win!  I treat it like a part time job and I've generally won smaller prizes.  Yesterday we found out that we were in the running to win the HUGE Disney World prize through Breakfast Television and West Jet.  They wanted to make sure the winner would be home in the morning for the announcement.  We were so nervous this morning watching it live, and suddenly, we saw our street with Thor coming to surprise us!!!




The trip includes West Jet airfare, 5 nights at a Disney World Resort hotel, 6 day Hopper Pass and $600 USD for a family of 4!  I'm really hoping that we can just pay for Nya to join us or she will have to stay behind (I'm not leaving her behind!!).  We'll use our Disneyland Bottle Fund to pay for Nya's airplane ticket.  The total value of the trip?  $8600.00.  There is no way we could ever do a trip like this!   


The trip is in 3 weeks!  I don't know any other details yet but we are so excited.  The timing of this is amazing.  We really wanted to go to Disneyland this year, but with us starting fostering likely in May, we weren't sure how it would happen.  Here's hoping Gary's work is cool with him having a few days off....


I'll include the video here once it's posted online, I think you can reach it here.


I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I'm off to go buy some Disney themed T-shirts!

Love,
Louise
