Downtown Disney Hotels Magic Memories Contest

Downtown Disney and Instagram: two great tastes that taste great together! Or, well, I suppose. I’m not on Instagram (yet) but boy is it popular.

Anyway: thank you, Downtown Disney Hotels, for alerting me to this contest via email two days before it ends. How nice of you. How useful!

Wait, shouldn't that guy's finger be blocking out his wife and kid's heads?

Here is a Facebook post/photo which will give you more specific detail, but to sum up, in the next two days you can upload your favourite vacation photos on Instagram with the hashtag #MagicMemoriesContest, and try to get your photo into the top 20% of the entries! You still have time to pay a LOT of people to vote up your photo so go for it!

What do you get? According to the email I got TODAY (9_9), you win a free 5-day/4-night vacation at WDW Resort with park tickets, Disney Quest tickets, and breakfasts inclusive. That’s it, I’m going out looking for sweepstakes and contests from now on, since obviously Disney doesn’t WANT me to know about them until it’s too late for me to do anything. …Not that I’d have entered this one anyway, but still. I’d have shared it here!

New Sweepstakes at the Disney Store!

The Disney Store is running a sweepstakes from now until March 3, 2013, to win a trip to Disney World and experience New Fantasyland! This prize includes not only 5-day/4-night accomodations and tickets but also a one-night stay in the Suite in Cinderella Castle – ooh-la-la – I still dream of actually living there full-time. 😉

You can find out more about New Fantasyland here, though really, it’s only the tip of the iceberg; they don’t go into the Be Our Guest restaurant, which I have to say looks amazing. And I don’t usually say that about restaurants. 😀

Anyway, this sweepstakes is running for the next month, and unlike most of Disney’s sweepstakes you can only enter once, not once per day. However, one neat thing is that you can enter in the Disney Store, too! Almost makes me wish I’d saved my entry and used it as an excuse to go back to the Disney Store, but there’s only one near me and it’s 30-minutes’ drive away, and I was JUST there last week. Phooey, I say!

Disney Time Sweepstakes

I’m a little late in promoting this, but there are two days left to enter this great sweepstakes, meaning you still have two chances to win!  Disney has been giving away a vacation a day for all of January, and ALL entries that were received during the month will be entered in the final grand drawing on 1/31.  Pick from your preferred vacation out of five possibilities, and have fun!
