    She seems very deserving! I'm happy for her... maybe she should just jump in with both feet... Disney Vacation Club & Annual Passes!

    I hope they have a good time!!

    I also hope that they are able to manage their money well - there are far to many sad stories about how lottery winners end up destitute in the end...

    I live in Michigan but am 8 miles from the tv station that put this broadcast up. In EVERY interview she has done in the area, going to WDW is the first thing she has said she is going to do. Good for her! Unemployment is really high (higher than other areas) in this area and I am glad someone deserving is benefiting from the lottery (& going to my favorite place in the world ).

    Hehe what else would you do? Like mentioned before, DVC and APs for the family!! (And then save some so you're not like most who have the money spent within the first year. )

    Just imagine... a few prints, a few hundred pins, and some of those Olszewski WDW and DLR miniatures... )

    Congrats to the person, may she enjoy the gift immensely, and HAVE FUN AT WDW!!!!
    The Golden age never was the present age… but with human liberty we can fulfill the promise and meaning of America. To everyone a chance. To all people, regardless of their birth the right to live, to work, to be themselves, and to become whatever their visions can combine to make them. This is the promise of America...And I foresee the American adventure to continue for a long, long time!

    That would be the first thing I would do if I won the lotto take a trip to the world. And I would also move to florida, Minnesota weather stinks haha

    When hinges creak, in doorless chambers. And strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls. Whenever candlelights flicker, where the air is deathly still, that is the time when ghosts are present. Practicing their terror, with ghoulish delight!

    Welcome! Foolish Mortals, to the Haunted Mansion, I am your host, your ghost host.
