    1. The World!
    2. Poly - I've always wanted to stay there. Even though we LOVE POFQ and always stay there, I'd definitely have to upgrade for this trip! We'd add a few days though and hop over to POFQ once we were paying on our own.
    3. New Discoveries/Magic Makeovers. I honestly can't figure out why I would choose character instead - they both come with a character dining, they both come with room decor - the 2nd just also comes with makeovers.
    4. December 2013! It's when we are planning on returning anyway :-)

    *I was originally thinking DL since I've never been there and the trip wasn't enough time for WDW (we're used to ten days), but then I read that the DW tickets can be upgraded. Is that true? If I could upgrade them to 7 or 8 day tickets that's what I'd do. Then we could just pay for 4 or 5 nights at a different resort (probably AoA or AKL).


    1) the World or the Land? World (if tickets can be upgraded)

    2) Resort? are there set options? I'd like to choose the Poly

    3) Package (romance, character, etc.)? DD10 says Happy Happenings, I say Amazing Fun

    4) Dates of travel? October

    I thought I remembered reading that the Magic Makeovers comes with room decor also, but it's not listed on the page where you fill out the entry. :scratchin That's the one DD would choose if it came with the room decor.

    1) the World or the Land? Definitely DL, as we have never been
    2) Resort? Grand Californian
    3) Package (romance, character, etc.)? Romance
    4) Dates of travel? This I'm not sure about... I don't know much about DL crowd levels, and because my husband is a teacher we can only ever travel at the worst times of year (summer and holidays/spring break). I guess I'll figure it out if (when!!) we win! ;)

    Hard to decide between DL and WDW because I love WDW and want to go back, but it would be nice to go to CA for the first time on someone else's dime. My best friend lives in Orlando which pulls me there.

    If we went to WDW it would be...
    2) Contemporary or Poly
    3) Character for sure
    4) Probably October some time, or early December, depends on when my friend has her kids (shared custody).

    If we went to DL... I would let everyone on here plan my trip.

    This is why I like that deal. I really don't like the idea of my grirls wearing makeup, so BBB is out for us.

    I understand that! Mine would probably choose the pirate experience actually.

    I would have been sold on the fireworks viewing area too - but with the new fastpass + rollout, won't we all have that option anyway? Too soon to tell I guess.

    Who am I kidding? I would happily take ANY of these packages!

    Another consideration - if, like last year, you just get a disney gift card in the amount of the cost of whatever you chose ... then I would just pick whatever was most expensive vs what we'd actually want to do.

    1) Disneyland
    2) Disneyland Hotel
    3) Big Thrills Beyond the Theme Parks
    4) Either the week before D23 Expo in August, or in mid-November (after the holiday decorations are put up, but before the crowds get too heavy)
