What a wonderful problem it would be to have - having to pick between fabulous trips!
Are you referring to the WDW Vacation-A-Day contest or the the American Tourister contest?

The Vacation-A-Day contest does not include those options.

I thought the same thing. I have seen other sweeps that include a castle stay, but don't remember seeing it for this contest. I think last year's prize included more options. Maybe the poster was reading old rules?

Castle stay would be awesome though huh?

Did 'anyone' actually read the rules??

Disney 'picks' the hotel and it's a standard room. Where is everyone getting all their 'fantasy' expectations of winning from?? (castle suite, choice of hotels, rooms, etc.)

I'll take 'whatever', but from the rules the choice is Disney's, not the winners.

It's also 'limited' to a group of 4 (winner + 3).

I "think" PP has this contest "confused" with the American Tourister contest.

Where are you finding these packages/options? I can't even find where we get to pick our hotel rooms vs it being Disneys discretion...

We just went to DLR in September and while our pick would be WDW this trip, I wanted to say that I agree DLR is not a 2 day park - we went open to close for 4 straight days and still left things undone! And very few things done more than once!!

Our WDW choice (if we get to make it?) would most likely be to stay at the Poly....we are DVC but stayed at Poly for our honeymoon and would love to do it again!

We would extend our stay with DVC points for sure - but this would save us some extra points for our trip to Hawaii in 2015!

LOL, I think some are getting this sweepstakes confused with one that was out several months ago.

That said, it is true that the rules state that it is "limited" to a group of 4 but... last year we heard from several winners (the sweepstakes sounds pretty much the same) that were able to add people and/or days by paying the additional costs themselves.

We are a family of 5 and we stayed at the contemporary. In one regular room there were 2 queen beds and a sofa that folds down! Worked great for us!

I "think" PP is getting the Vacation-A-Day contest confused with the Disney Side American Touriser contest that DOES include those options.

Can my wife and I enter using different email addresses? Or is it on per physical address?

Thanks!

It is once per day per person and email address. You could each enter once a day as long as you each use a different email address.

weird... I just went to enter and it said my email address had already entered for today, which is impossible as I just read this thread and found out about this new contest.

I can't imagine winning. that would be amazing!!!
