ATLANTA, – Who said dreams can’t come true? Thanks to the Coca-Cola Telenovela Club, eight families from across the country were able to open happiness and create memories as they received the star treatment on a five-day, four-night vacation for six to Walt Disney World® Resort in Orlando. The families from Phoenix, Ariz., Miami, Fla., Chicago, Ill., Channelview and Frisco, Texas, Brooklyn, N.Y., and Modesto and Lawndale, Calif., enjoyed airfare, accommodations at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and tickets to all four Disney theme parks filled with fun, fantasy and Disney’s lovable characters. In addition, the winners received a pampering session at a spa plus a magical meet and greet with telenovela superstars Cristian de la Fuente and Jacqueline Bracamontes.

“For more than 100 years, Coca-Cola has been part of the dreams and celebrations shared by Hispanic families. From bautizos to quinceañeras, from our kids’ sports victories to graduation and treasured family vacations, Coke has always been there to refresh dreams, bring people together and help create new family memories,” said Reinaldo Padua, Assistant Vice President, Hispanic Marketing, Coca-Cola North America. “These families experienced unforgettable moments of happiness as they enjoyed five days of fun at Walt Disney World, met some of their favorite telenovela stars and drank plenty of ice cold Coca-Cola.”

Beyond the magic of the Disney World experience, Coca-Cola extended the red carpet to allow the winners the opportunity to meet two of their favorite telenovela stars – Cristian de la Fuente and Jacqueline Bracamontes. The winners and their families spent time with the actors and attended a meet and greet gala dinner.

“Through the Coca-Cola Telenovela Club we’re able to spend time with real fans who support us and enjoy our telenovelas,” said de la Fuente and Bracamontes. “We made great memories with the families selected for this wonderful experience. We hope they’ll treasure them for many years to come.”

“Coca-Cola’s Telenovela Club red carpet gala embodies the spirit of Disney Parks’ new campaign, ’Let The Memories Begin,’” said Greg Albrecht, Vice President, Alliance Marketing, Disney Destinations. “Together with our friends at Coke, we were thrilled to provide a dream-come-true Disney experience for the winners and their families that will create lasting memories to be shared with friends and fans alike.”

In addition to the local radio promotions, people nationwide had the chance to win a memorable vacation to Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando and meet two telenovela stars through an online sweepstakes at My Coke Rewards (MCR). Coca -Cola also partnered with Best Buy to offer fans the opportunity to enter a text-to-win sweepstakes for a chance to celebrate like a star and win a vacation. The MCR and Best Buy winners and their families joined the others for an unforgettable five-day, four-night experience at Walt Disney World Resort.

Continuing its efforts to offer relevant programs to the Hispanic market, the Company announced that it will have two additional Coca-Cola Telenovela Club promotions in 2011. The next fan event could be as early as spring 2011, so telenovela fans should stay tuned to for more information.

The Coca-Cola Telenovela Club is part of the Company’s overall 2010 Hispanic marketing effort, which features both traditional and non-traditional media, including television, radio and cinema advertising, digital, out-of-home, point-of-sale, and targeted sampling activities.
