At-a-Glance: Disney Parks' ‘Year of a Million Dreams’
in 2008

During "The Year of a Million Dreams" in 2008, more than one million very special dreams will be awarded to guests at Disneyland Resort in California and Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. The special celebration was inspired by focus groups that identified Disney Parks as the places where dreams come true.

Through Dec. 31, 2008

Thousands of Disney cast members are creating an unprecedented number of Magical Moments as members of the Dream Squad. On special assignment for the celebration, these cast members are taking Disney friendliness to exciting new heights with personal interactions marked by special surprises.

More than a million extra-special dreams are being awarded through a random process as part of the unique Disney Dreams Giveaway -- from the special -- a Dream FASTPASS -- to the spectacular -- a night in the Cinderella Castle Suite, on a private island, or a trip to every Disney park around the world. Eligible guests can be randomly selected for these dreams-come-true just by being in the park or Downtown Disney. Mail-in entries are available for those who can't be here.

Perhaps the most magical Disney Dreams Giveaway prizes are overnight experiences for winning guests at both East and West Coast resorts: a royal suite inside Cinderella Castle at Walt Disney World Resort and a Mickey Mouse Penthouse at Disneyland Resort.

Disney cast members famous for guest service every day of the year are creating tens of millions of magical moments -- personal interactions that can make a guest feel like a VIP. These include guests helping open a Disney park in the morning, joining performers in a Disney parade or being official wildlife spotter on a Disney's Animal Kingdom safari.

"The Year of a Million Dreams" also includes a whole lineup of immersive entertainment that draws guests into the middle of the action. Guests might find themselves living the buccaneer life as a pirate of the Caribbean, "getting royal" with a Disney prince or princess, learning the ways of a Jedi in the Star Wars galaxy, or joining in a high-energy "High School Musical" pep rally.

As if thousands of dreams bestowed daily aren't enough, Disney guests are also being treated to new attractions and shows at Walt Disney World and Disneyland resorts as part of "The Year of a Million Dreams" celebration:
