As a way of wrapping up our coverage of the Disney-MGM Studios name change and being inspired by Jennifer’s excellent article on Friday, I’ve devoted this week’s What in the World? to a contest all about your favorite Disney-MGM Studios memories. Tell us about some of the wacky, zany, heartfelt, memorable, hilarious, uplifting, inspiring, or embarrassing moments you’ve spent at our favorite park – and you could win a FREE Studioscentral.com t-shirt (that’s right George…I said FREE t-shirt :mrgreen: ) and a copy of Disney’s latest movie release – the Jungle Book on DVD.

To enter, please send me a short story, describing one of your more memorable moments at the Studios (to see some of my favorite Disney memories, go here). It could be a list, it could be an in-depth story – anything you want. Include a picture or two as well (funny ride photos are a plus) However you decide to enter, the choice is yours! We ask only that you keep entries to 500 words or less.

I will of course, read all of the entries, and put them up on next week’s What in the World? The winner of the t-shirt and Jungle Book DVD will be randomly selected the entries I receive and announced in next week. And don’t be surprised if we give away a few more shirts, just for fun!

Please send your entry (either within the text of the email or in a Word document) to glenn@studioscentral.com by 6:00 pm E.S.T. on Sunday January 27th. Good luck and have a great week everyone!

I encourage all of you to write in, I mean there's free swag at stake. Heck, if I wasn't exempt, I'd write in and try to win. Glenn isn't looking for Shakespeare, just some entries to share with others :thumright:

Thanks for your submission! Yep I'm in Hawaii - but not on Oahu where the Pro Bowl is played...I'm in Hilo, on the Big Island. It's a tad difficult getting to Walt Disney World from here.

If you and your family head my way though, lemme kno :thumleft:

January 27th? I thought the contest would end sooner than that.

And I think I may have entered with the same entry as before. O.o

Yeah...I know...

"Back in my day, we didn't wear shorts that looked like pajama bottoms. Oh yeah...we did."

My mom told me I would laugh at my hair when I got older...but she didn't say a thing about my shorts!
