A family living out their dream after selling all their belongings to travel the world are spending a whole month in Disney World thanks to winning a contest.
Garrett Gee, 27, and his wife Jessica, 30, of Utah, sold mobile app Scan to Snapchat in 2015 for $54 million, and have since decided to spend their time travelling the globe with their two children Dorothy, four, and Manilla, two.
Now it seems that lady luck has visited the family once again after they entered and won Disney’s 30 Stays in 30 Days contest, which means they will be spending the next month staying in all the various resorts and seeing the many sites of the four Disney theme parks and two water parks.
Living the life: Garrett Gee, 27, and his wife Jessica, 30, of Utah, have won a contest to spend the next 30 days exploring Disney World
On her way: The 30 Stays in 30 Days contest will see the family stay in a different hotel every night of one month
All smiles: Garrett sold mobile app Scan to Snapchat in 2015 for $54million, and then immediately put it into savings
The family will be put up in a different hotel every night, visiting with some of the 70,000 cast members and will be playing an unspecified game that will help the family figure out where they are off to next.
The so-called Bucket List Family have promised to keep their more than 690,000 Instagram followers up to date with regular posts about their adventures in the parks – as well as blogging on a website made for the Disney trip.
The family first came to fame back in 2015 when they put the money from the massive sale of Garrett’s app into savings and sold all of their possessions. Instead of spending the money on possessions, they decided to go on an indefinite vacation.
Fun times: The parents have been travelling with their children Dorothy, four, and Manilla, two, since selling their belongings in 2015
Long road: The family have been on more than 150 flights together since starting their journey
New friends: They have been travelling through 45 countries without touching much of their huge fortune
A different look: Garrett thought that a new house and cars just ‘didn’t feel right’, so they decided to sell everything they owned and take off
‘A new house and cars didn’t feel right – we didn’t need that stuff,’ Garrett told People last year.
‘We were young, healthy and really didn’t need much of anything. So we decided to travel, and as we added plans to our bucket list, it just became real.’
Since then, they have traveled to 45 countries and taken 150 flights together as they take in the wonders of the world.
Starring role: The couple now regularly post videos to their popular YouTube channel
Tip top: They have more than 690,000 followers on Instagram and over 94,000 YouTube subscribers
The couple, who married in 2009, have since supplemented their millions by becoming travel bloggers and vloggers with more than 94,000 subscribers on YouTube.
They have also become budding philanthropists by campaigning with the likes of Effect.org and raising funds to build schools.
They also volunteered as teachers in Bali, helped raise money for orphans in Turks and Caicos and even donated LASIK surgeries to blind people.
