I just got back too (last week before the crazy time started) and while it was a magical trip I think I just don't like the parks at Xmas .

But anyway I now hate that this is happening because I'm just getting over my post trip blues and now this sweepstakes is getting my (very very little) hopes up.

Thanks for this info. Extra people and time are important to us as it would be such a long trip to/from the west coast.


We would have to take a value suite as we have 5-6 in our party.

I know its not a mod/deluxe but oh boy just being there would be awesome.

Am I the only one who would have a hard time choosing which one to take? I love the world, but it would be pretty nice to try the land free. Considering I live in MI, the airfare to CA would kill to pay out of pocket, where as MCO is fairly decent most times. That said I feel like there is so much to do at WDW that adding a few days would be nice.

The rules say they pick a winner 3 business days later. So winners should be announced starting next week.

I was thinking that too I think I would goto DLR since very unlikely I would ever get there.

Not a hard decision at all. WDW is much more affordable (travel and time wise) than getting to DL. Given a free trip to my choice? DL it is!! It would be incredibly difficult to get there (or back there) so that's where I'd choose. YMMV, results not guaranteed, yada yada yada (Yoda), etc.

Winners will be notified(phone or email) on or about one (1) business day after each Daily Drawing.

And each Daily Drawing is held 3 days after the actual day. So, todays drawing should be held Friday, and notifications go out on Saturday. If I read (and understood) the rules correctly.

I think it totally depends on where you live. We live in Oregon so we picked WDW last year. It is unlikely that we would go that far on our own. DL is a 2 day drive for us. If we win this time we would prob. do WDW again. We still have so much for to see! Fingers crossed!
