Winner of ‘Watch and Win’ is Wowed by Winning

Rose Festival Contestant Wins Disneyland® Dream Trip

Kimberly Wagner Sabang of NE Portland has won an evening’s stay in one of the most special places in the entire Disneyland® Resort, the Disneyland® Dream Suite. Ms. Sabang entered the 2010 Alaska Airlines Watch and Win Sweepstakes during the Grand Floral Parade Saturday, June 12, 2010. She and three others will enjoy a 4-day Disney Dream Vacation to the Disneyland® Resort in Anaheim, California for catching the winning word “Dream” on the KGW News Channel 8 broadcast of the parade.

The Disneyland® Dream Suite, built to honor one of the dreams of Walt Disney is an awe-inspiring 2,200 square foot suite located inside the heart of Disneyland® Park. Before he passed, Walt Disney dreamed of a suite where he could entertain his extended family and special guests. This suite was to overlook the Rivers of America in New Orleans Square. Now, thanks to Alaska Airlines and the Portland Rose Festival, Ms. Sabang and her guests will be among the few that will ever have the opportunity to experience this “money can’t buy” stay at the Disneyland® Resort.

“I was and am still in shock because never in my dreams did I think I would win,” said Kimberly Sabang. “I just see this as a belated birthday gift. I am so excited to go and stay in the Dream Suite and to see Eeyore (the donkey). I love him. I’d just like to thank everyone for this prize. It is truly a dream come true.”
