The Spangler family of Randolph, Ohio won the marquee prize in Disney's "Year of a Million Dreams" celebration. They were chosen from 50,000 online entrants to win: a morning at the Magic Kingdom all by themselves!
Walking hand-in-hand on a red carpet, Raymond and Tammy Spangler and their two children seemed unsure of their steps Wednesday at Walt Disney World.
The Magic Kingdom was eerily quiet, with only the chirping of birds, piped in orchestra music and the sound of their footsteps filling the 125-acre park. They were about halfway up the red carpet to the Cinderella Castle when all that dissolved and 1,500 mouses, maids, baseball players and princesses came streaming out of hiding to welcome them.
"There were like thousand and thousands of people in the streets all of the sudden," 13-year-old Derick Spangler said.
