Contestants Compete for Disney Vacations on ‘Wheel of Fortune’ Secret Santa Week

The holidays are definitely the most wonderful time of the year, and we’re excited to be celebrating once again with our friends at Wheel of Fortune!  Starting tonight, and continuing through this week and next, it’s time for the show’s Secret Santa Weeks. And… for the first time, we’ve teamed up with “Wheel” to make the holidays pretty special for some lucky contestants… and home viewers!

During the Secret Santa Weeks, whatever the contestants win… someone at home wins, too!  And, that includes all kinds of Disney Vacations – to the Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, Disney Cruise Line, Adventures by Disney, and Aulani!  I took my friends, Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Pluto to join in the holiday fun. I’m happy to share a couple of cool photos.  

Now, some of you may have heard that “Wheel’s” host, Pat Sajak, had a bit of a health setback during the days we taped these episodes, but I’m happy to report he’s fully recovered and back to work.  (If you happen to be at the Walt Disney World Resort next week, come celebrate the Holidays with Pat as he narrates the “Candlelight Processional” at Epcot on December 16, 17 and 18!)

So, in a “Wheel of Fortune” first, you’ll see Vanna White step in to take over the hosting duties.  (And, you just might see our friends Mickey and Minnie in a whole new light.) And, finally, the set for the show is full of hundreds of your favorite Disney toys, games, plush animals, as well as Disney Holiday décor.  (It might help you make a few gift-giving decisions while you watch!)

Expect great puzzles, highlights of amazing Disney vacations, spectacular décor, and so much more.  (And I’m delighted to say that Goofy didn’t knock over a single thing!)
