Winners say 'no thanks' sometimes

Can you imagine?!?!?!?!?
Nope -- I'd want to stay in the castle -- even if I had to go out and rent a family.
Wow! I would stay to no matter what.
As I've heard how it works, winning the castle stay essentially takes your entire day. You're thrown into the parade, there's another stage appear, there's a planned dinner, than an appearance at the fireworks show, then you're locked into castle that night and can't leave. From the moment you win, the rest of your day is out of your control.
If I was traveling with a group and had already made arrangements, I too might think about saying "no". I have better things to do at WDW than become a prop.
Not me--I'll take castle stay and "prop" status
We travel with friends, so it would be tough to bail on our plans with them for the whole day, but they would understand and we would probably still do it. I know we'd encourage them to do so if they won.
It could also happen where somebody won but was leaving that day.
I heard one couple that turned it down were elderly and didn't want to move their stuff.
I can't say I'd be jumping for joy with the Castle either. Now the free FP's I'd accept. But of course we haven't been picked for anything (not even popcorn) ... Only visit every month a couple of times so I guess it's no surprise.
If you win the stay in the castle do you still have to pay for your hotel room for that night if you are stayng on Disney property?
I could very easily turn down a castle stay. I enjoy an evening stroll around the Beach Club/Boardwalk area with a cocktail and the wife and given that Magic Kingdom is alcohol free it would be difficult to do this down Mainstreet USA.
I would not turn down a stay in Cinderella's Castle for anything,no matter what I have schedualed,no matter if I was offered a million dollars to refuse, even *gulp* a chance to meet Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom and use their plastic to go shopping with them all day if I didn't stay.
THAT'S HOW MUCH I WANT TO STAY THERE!
All you people who want to give up a once in a lifetime opportunity,are nutters!
There are lots of things that are once in a lifetime opportunities that I'd be happy to turn down. A castle stay could easily be one of them.
I'd gladly turn down the Once in a Lifetime opportunity to be shot dead.
Also, turning down a million dollars and instead spending a night as a prisoner in an oversized castle is Wrong-Sick.
If we were lucky enough to be chosen for any of the free gifts, you bet we would take them.
I don't have any desire to stay in the Castle, free or not, so if they let me I'd absolutely love to give my "prize" away to someone. I think giving it to someone would be much more fun than keeping it for myself!
no way i if i won i would make sure i was there to stay in teh castle
I could never say no to Mr. Depp!
It'd be the toughest decision I'd ever have to make.
I thought about it long and hard before I even posted that.
Cinderella was in my loving affections long before my (hott,amazing exquisite!!!! ) Johnny or Orlando.
Dang,why must I be so loyal?!
There was a Post about a young tattooed guy on the CB that did this.. He is single and was in the parks alone.. He invited a family with 2 young girls 5 and 2 to stay with him in the castle!!!
ETA: oopsss it is on THIS board... sorry
My kids would be very upset if I turned down the stay. I would just have to make it work. Can you imagine the stories my kids would have to tell all their friends when they got home. IN THE DISNEY PARADE, STAYED AT THE CASTLE, WOW!!!
