ANAHEIM, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Taylor Morrison’s 2012 Dream Home Giveaway winner Mark Roberson won’t soon forget his first trip to the Disneyland® Resort.
The Atlanta man spent the early morning hours of October 12 being introduced as the newly minted winner of a Taylor Morrison contest that traces its origins to the famous Anaheim theme park.
Mark and his wife, Gloria, were presented the ceremonial key to their new home by Taylor Morrison Houston’s Amy Haywood-Rino on the steps of the Innoventions Dream Home, which was developed by the Disneyland® Resort in collaboration with Taylor Morrison, Microsoft and HP. The Dream Home Giveaway, now in its fifth year, was inspired by the Innoventions Dream Home exhibit located in Disneyland® Park in Anaheim.
Roberson and his wife, Gloria, found out in August that they had won the 2012 Dream Home Giveaway - two weeks before Mark’s unemployment benefits were set to expire.
After receiving the key, the family was treated to a personal tour of the Innoventions Dream Home exhibit before being welcomed to Disneyland® Park to experience the fun of the Park’s attractions for the first time.
“It’s too much to be able to comprehend,” Roberson said. “This has been an incredible couple of months for us. We can’t wait to see what’s next.”
Next up for the Robersons will be the unveiling of their new $200,000 dream home in Houston in November. The couple chose the Texas community to begin a new chapter in their lives together. Their new home has been outfitted to their wishes and even includes Taylor Morrison’s new Interactive Home™ system.
“It’s terrific to see the joy this event has brought to the Roberson family,” Haywood-Rino said. “We can’t wait to see their faces as they walk through the front door of their dream home for the first time.”
