So, let's do this...
1) the World or the Land?
2) Resort?
3) Package (romance, character, etc.)?
4) Dates of travel?

Wasn't it one of the Oprah gurus who said if you send your request up into the universe it will happen (or something like that)...I'm sending, I'm sending...

Nice day dream to get us through another LONG day of waiting...

Good luck everyone!
Since, we go to WDW a lot because we live so close...

1) DL
2) Grand Californian
3) Character/Happy Happenings (We have a 2 1/2 year old. I think she would enjoy this one more. Possibly considering the Magical Memories.)
4) Summer (Both DH and I are teachers. This would be the easiest time for us to travel.)

We would also extend the trip to travel to other places. Really wanting some pixie dust.

1) Disney World (even though I've never been to Disneyland)
2) Contemporary, Poly or GF
3) Romance Package. I would love the Spa treatment!
4) Since I am teacher, the week of NYE would be great!

1. Totally having a hard time deciding. Never been to DisneyLand, so probably there. But Disney World is my favorite place in the whole world!
2. Disney land.. Grand Californian. Disney world... Another tough one, maybe Polynesian or wilderness lodge
3. Character cuddles.... Totally want the Mickeys grand welcome, or romance
4. Depends on if there are blackout dates and when they are. I would want to go around a holiday if possible.

Well, I've got two ideas in my head.

If dh is willing to go (he refuses to fly but I'm not driving for a short trip, so he would have to fly), I would have our son and his son go with us and my choice would be:
WDW
Cuddly characters
AoA (Cars)
May or November

If dh won't go, then i would take my two adult daughters.
WDW
Not sure which choice
Poly or Boardwalk
early December (oldest dd loves Christmas and youngest dd has a birthday)

Disneyland is a must if you've never been. Its walt's parks.
Carsland is amazing! And worth the. Trip Good luck to the nice posters!

Sounds like a deal. I'm not sure the boys would be too happy, but you know Brian. He'd be glad to skip it.

1. Disney World
2. This is apparently up to Disney but since we really liked the values, anywhere would be fine
3. Character Cuddles and Happy Happenings
4. Not really sure, going before the fall would mean DD2 would be able to not count as a person but I would really like to take my girls to MNSSHP so probably September

Subject: RE: Disney Parks " Disney Time" Sweepstakes/Jan 2





I just opened your FedEx, and confirmed you as the 1/2/2013 winner.

Please note, Disney, will not receive any winner information from me, until the promotion is officially over and the last winner has been confirmed. You should not expect to hear from a Disney trip coordinator until early February. You can continue to email or call me with any questions you may have. Your next step is to choose your choice of resort and prize package, and let me know.



Thanks,

I loved dealing with her last year. She must have thought I was nuts when she first emailed me about my win and I questioned everything she said because I couldn't believe I'd won. I got to talk to her on the phone a couple of times too, super nice.

I don't like makeup on my daughter either, she's 8, but she did the BBB makeover at DL, and the makeup is just sparkly, it's not really noticeably colorful. Plus, the fairy godmother in training gives you the makeup in a cute backpack so they can play with it later. It's the only way I'd let my baby put makeup on.

They gave us gift cards for the amount stated the enhancement was worth. This year may be different though, so I wouldn't count on extra gift cards.

1) Disney World
2) Caribbean Beach (in a pirate room for my little hooligans)
3) The Pirate League/BBB package
4) Late May, during a Star Wars Weekend (again, for the hooligans!)

Sigh, it's so fun to plan....

Good Luck everyone!!!

1. Disneyland. I have been to WDW several times and I have never been to the West Coast before. This would be a great opportunity.
2. Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel. If I have to pay taxes on this trip than I am going to try to live within my means.
3. Big Thrills.
4. I have no idea. I will consider this if I actually win. Chances are slim.

Can anyone tell me what the in room decor consists of? I tried looking it up, but I can't find anything about it.
