This is every Disney fan’s dream come true!

Every year, millions of eager fans flock to Walt Disney World Resort to spend their hard-earned money on the vacation of their dreams. There is no doubt about it; Disney vacations are not cheap. For many Disney fans, a trip to the theme Parks is something they meticulously save up for months to years in advance. While it may all be worth having a magical and unforgettable experience in the Parks, it’s easy to assume that all Disney fans wish the Parks cost less.

A dream come true happened to one woman from Gloucester County, New Jersey when she won the jackpot from an iPhone app. She was playing Powerball on the lottery app, Jackpocket. At 3 a.m., the woman received a mysterious email that said she had one the million-dollar prize. Initially, she felt it was too good to be true.

“I didn’t believe it at first. I thought it was a scam. But when I realized it was for real, I was pretty happy!,” says the woman.

She claims that she “had a feeling to play,” and that intuition led her to purchase her winning $2 ticket. The winner is a grandmother of 10 grandchildren who plans to use her winnings on the children. She says that “vacations and trips to Disney are in their future.”
