Long Island family wins Orlando vacation for 50

Jennifer Young has won Visit Orlando’s Most Magical Gathering contest and will enjoy an Orlando vacation experience with 49 of her closest family members and friends at Walt Disney World Resort.

The grand prize celebration for 50 people includes a three-night, four-day stay at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, two private catered group celebrations produced by a Disney event specialist from Disney Meetings & Events and theme park tickets. 

In early March, Young and her family will celebrate three special events – a shared 50th birthday party with her husband and her parents’ 50th wedding anniversary – and will be visiting during the 50th anniversary celebration at Walt Disney World Resort. The contest prize also includes roundtrip airfare to Orlando provided by Spirit Airlines.

Young’s contest submission told the story of her close-knit circle of family members and friends who believe that life is better when they are laughing together, the personal impact of the global pandemic, and how she hoped the prize would give the family the gift of a reunion to make up for lost time. 

Young also focused on important milestone celebrations they hoped to be reunited for, including Young and her husband’s 50th birthdays, the 50th wedding anniversary of Young’s parents, and her grandmother’s 80th birthday, along with special events for her daughters, including high school and college graduations and a Sweet 16 birthday.

“It’s been such a long time since all of us have been in the same place at the same time and we’re looking forward to having a lot of fun together,” Young said in a written statement. “There is a lot to celebrate!”
