  • YoaMD Winning Family Video

    Don't know if this has been posted yet, but youtube has a clip from GMA of the winning family who got the day in the MK to themselves (they also show computer renderings of the Royal Suite). I got the chills seeing that when all the CMs came out on Main Street. The expressions on all their faces were priceless. It must have been one very large magical moment. As for the suite in Cinderella Castle, if they can get it to look anything like those renderings, it will be simply stunning. Not much more I can say but wow.

    I just saw the ad to win the night in the castle from GMA - you just send in a family photo and an essay on why you deserve to go. I may just do that.

      The suite looks so pretty - but it does seem quite extravagant for Disney to decorate the suite like that for an eighteen month celebration. Surely they are considering using it after the YOAMD has finished.

            that was awesome. with things like this.. I don't see how people can continue to slam disney over this campaign. If this happened to you, you'd be floored.

            Where is this 'royal treatment' on the GMA website? I can't find it

              Is this picture breathtaking or is it not?



              Something about the morning sun on the castle, and the family in the middle of Main Street just wowed me.

                I'm guessing we'll be seeing something like this soon in a future Disney commercial...

                  My name isn't Surely, Speedy, but current plans are for the suite to be given to big VIPs ... not a pay deal. But who knows?

                    I can still slam Disney and will.

                    Hell, I'll even slam them for the way they pick 'winners' for things like this.

                    And, no, I doubt I'd be floored if I was the only guest in the MK ... I'd think it was a bit strange and eerie though. But it was all a setup for the media attention (largely ABC, natch) to kick-off the event.

                    So far this whole event elicits a big yawn from me. That won't change if I win a FastPass next week either.

                      It's not. You can clearly see the difference between the repainted turrets and the ones that aren't, and you can very clearly see the tape on the bottom left turrets covering up damage to the roof done by all that 50th stuff.

                      I wonder if these people were randomly selected as one of the YoaMD handouts, or is this another case of what Al described in previous promotions, where they wait for a nice clean Disney-esque family to come along and award it to them instead.

                      I know this makes me sound like a big grump, but I promise you that I'm no TDLFAN when it comes to my expectations. They simply should have taken that picture looking the other way with the family walking into the shot.

                        Awesome Mike, thanks for sharing the video as I didn't get a chance to watch it myself.

                        I'll admit that it made me teary-eyed too. It brought back memories of my early morning at Disneyland on July 17, 2005 with Cast Members lining Main Street, only this time they were filling it. If I was in that family I would've been hugging everyone.

                        One thing I've noticed is that the family isn't exactly dressed in Disney apparel, ears/hats, etc. Not that I mind, but something I wasn't expecting to say the least.

                        Okay Disney -- what's next?

                          But this angle is so much more Disney-esque. The only way it could be more Disney-like is if the son & daughter were about 7 years younger and the girl was on the dad's shoulders pointing up at fireworks in the sky. (at least judging by most Disney commercials)

                            Wow! I can't imagine what that family felt at the moment they got mobbed. Wow. Totally cool!

                              Wow you can "clearly see" that, I must need to get my eyes checked then.

                                I agree. Never would have noticed that had MickeyMania not pointed it out. Oh well. Guess I better get my money back for the Lasik surgery I had done 3 years ago!

                                  That was awesome video. What a lucky family indeed.

                                  This is the first time looking at a picture of the suite in the castle for me. I know where those windows are located on the castle and what's strange is that they are made of blue glass, so I'm not sure of they will be able to look out.

                                    To be fair, I wouldn't have noticed it if I hadn't been following sites documenting every little change at the castle.All it would have taken is a little Photoshop.

                                      Me too!!! Isn't it a shame that the winners didn't even seem like Disney fanatics. They weren't even excited to be there. Please - GIVE ME THEIR DREAM!!!!!!!!!!!

                                        I didn't get that. There faces when the characters/CMs came out seemed priceless to me. They just seemed like they weren't big fans of the interview and didn't have much to say. I know there wouldn't be much I could say after winning that prize. Just my opinion though.
