Monday Memories: Winning a Year of a Million Dreams Prize!

  We visited Walt Disney World in 2007 during "The Year of a Million Dreams" promotion, where guests were surprised every day by "The Dream Team" with everything from FastPasses to a night of stay in Cinderella's Castle in Magic Kingdom.

  We had just entered Magic Kingdom and made a stop at Main Street Bakery. I went through the line ordering our favorites: Cinnamon Coffee Crumb Cake (Me), Cherry Turnover (Hubby), Apple Turnover (Matt) and Chocolate Chip Cookie (Drew). Well, after taking our order I noticed the Cast Member place a giant cookie on our tray. I thought to myself: Oh no, I meant a small cookie. I bet that one is over $10!

   As we got up to the counter to pay, I opened my mouth to explain the mistake but I was interrupted by two Cast Members saying in unison: "On behalf of Walt Disney World and The Year of a Million Dreams, we present you with this dream cookie." I was so surprised and my son was ecstatic with his giant chocolate chip cookie. It took him three days to eat it. lol. Here's a pic:
