January 25: An Historic First For Michigan Family

On January 25, 2007 at 9:50 a.m. a family of four from Michigan boarded the Star Tours attraction at Disney-MGM Studios and got more than a ride to Endor.

When the Fouch family boarded Simulator 4, sixteen-year-old Brad Fouch had no idea he would be randomly selected to win a night's stay at Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom as part of the ongoing Disney Dreams Giveaway during The Year of a Million Dreams campaign. "I was thinking I had the bad seat because I was sitting on the end," he later explained. But Brad was in the right seat at the right time ... seat 8 row 2 to be exact.

Jim and Lisa Fouch and their children Brad and (eight-year-old) Hannah were the first Walt Disney World guests to win a night's stay four stories above the surrounding Magic Kingdom. They were also honored in a special ceremony, served as grand marshals of the afternoon parade, dined at Cinderella's Royal Table restaurant, and given passes to skip lines at attractions for the day.
