Another Disney Giveaway!

Disney Giveaway

Hi All,

Remember how I gave away a Disney stay last year because we had to cancel our trip and couldn’t reschedule? Well… Hurricane Matthew forced us to cancel our trip again this year. It turns out that Disney only gives us a limited window to reschedule. Unfortunately for me, I can’t go during the window. Fortunately for you, someone else gets to go! You must be a member to be eligible. CLICK HERE to join the community!

I have a one bedroom villa at Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa (which is actually on the DisneyWorld property in Orlando, FL) for Thursday, Jan 12th through Monday, Jan 16th (over MLK weekend). You’ll need to get yourself there, and you’ll need to purchase park passes. But, your hotel will be super-nice and paid for. The value of the stay is $2,034. It has a living room with queen sleeper sofa, full kitchen with dining table, bedroom with king bed, bathroom with jacuzzi tub, and a balcony. If you fly in, transportation to the hotel from the airport is included. Here are a few photos (click to enlarge):

Living Room Kitchen bedroom

I am opening up this giveaway to ALL members, whether you joined today or last year! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post to let me know you are interested by Tuesday, November 22, 2016. I will randomly select a winner on Wednesday the 23rd, the day before Thanksgiving! Speaking of which, I am so grateful for this community! Good luck!

    I’m sorry that you and your family won’t be able to enjoy a lovely holiday together again this year. But I also hope someone else will win the holiday who really needs a holiday and maybe couldn’t afford to stay in such lovely surroundings otherwise. That would be very special for them. In closing, we are all waiting to hear the outcome of the big election today. It is very exciting!

        I wrote that message before the outcome. It must have been a premonition or something. Interesting days ahead.

    Hurricane Matthew tore the roof off our house so this would be an awesome way to forget all the damage and destruction it cause. We took a direct hit where I live. Sorry Darlene that you can’t go. But thanks for giving us a chance to go in your place.

      Darlene, I am so very sorry that this has happened to you twice! My husband and I had a similar week several years ago that we had prepaid and then could not find a sitter for our dog children. We offered the week to all our friends, but no one was able to get away. So our week went unused. I was not blogging at that time or else I would have tried this as well. Thank you for sharing the opportunity with your club members… that is very sweet and generous of you…

    Oh my gosh! I always go to Disney in January for my birthday. This would be such a nice upgrade from Pop Century (where I’m currently going to stay.) It’s really too bad you can’t bank those points and use them for another year. I can’t believe the bad luck you’ve had trying to get to your Disney “home.” Maybe next year…

    Darlene, It is such a shame that you weren’t able to take this trip again! We went to DisneyWorld on our honeymoon in 1974, it was quite new. Over the years we have been back several times, including trips with our kids as they grew up. It has always been such a special place for us. It is so generous of you to offer this trip to someone else. Beth K.

I’d love to be able to go and get away from the harsh and snowy New England weather for a few days. Thanks for sharing. I hope you get to visit Disneyworld sometime soon!

    You’re the swellest to offer this again, Darlene. What a bummer that the schedule doesn’t work for you. Our family would love to make the journey down from MD. Our 3 boys ate 8, 11, and 13 and have never been to Disney and we’d love to visit our best friends that moved there with the Coast Guard, as well as my dad who recently retired. Money is always the limitation. Thanks for any consideration. šŸ™‚

    Darlene, what a selfless & generous act of giving!! It must be a terribly disappointing time for you family, especially the kids having this happen 2 years in a row. Well, since waste naught, want naught is my motto, no sense letting thone reservations go to waste. If I were to win, this would be the honeymoon we’ve never had, after 15 years oder marriage. Again, thanks for your generosity.
