Congratulations! That is very exciting!

My first thought was to persuade you to go to WDW as it is just awesome. However, I would only do this if you can afford to add more days. It takes a lot of time to tour WDW and my biggest concern is the age of your kids. They are young and so you will not be able to go commando style to see everything - they will need pool time, nap time, etc. That is a long flight for kids that age and you don't want to start your trip with cranky kids.

If you have plans to get to WDW in the future when your kids are older, it might be a better idea to go to DL and take your time to enjoy it. If you are not sure if you will ever be able to swing a trip to WDW in the future, then I would try to add a few more days.

Good luck with the decision. I am sure whatever you decide, you will have a great time with your family!

Maybe a 7 night stay instead of a 4 night stay. The day we come home we should be able to go to the parks and fly home mid day and still be home around a decent time its just on the way there losing hours. I just told DH he doesnt get a choice, I am choosing WDW and we will make it work.
A 7 day stay would be my choice also. Good for you!

Ahhh - I missed the post that said that you made your decision! Good for you! Glad you can add on days. 7 days will be perfect! Just get them to bed early that first night and they should be ok! Have fun!

Just wanted to say congrats on the win....and I would definately take the WDW vacation and add a few days. We are closer to WDW and have only been there for all of our trips. If I were to win the sweepstakes I would take the DLR trip, because I dont know when we could ever afford to fly out there and have a DLR vacation too! Since Disney is paying for the bulk of your expenses, I would go to WDW as you have decided. Maybe try out one of the new Little Mermaid rooms at AOA
