Global Resort Homes Giveaway!

Happy Thanksgiving friends! I hope you are all getting ready to enjoy a wonderful holiday meal with your families!

I have something very special going on here and I’m really excited to tell you about it! I’m not sure how they did it, but two of my very good friends (Kristen and Traci) have convinced me to go down to Walt Disney World in February for the Royal Family 5K during the Princess Marathon Weekend! They are both flying in for the occasion and I can’t even wait! I haven’t done a marathon since the March of Dimes walk in Seattle back in 2005. Yes, it’s been quite a few years. I’m a little nervous, but I’m confident that I can do it!

When I travel down to Orlando with my family, we normally try to stay on WDW property. Now that we go down fairly often, we’ve ventured off and stayed in some of the off-property hotels. Well, this time we are lucky enough to have the opportunity to stay in a Global Resort Home vacation property!! I’m so insanely excited to be staying in this vacation home with two dear friends for what is working out to be a fabulousy pink and girly weekend!!

Anywho…back to the “something special” I told you about earlier. I am teaming up with Kristen at and Traci at The View From My Fishbowl to bring you a month-long opportunity to WIN a 7-night stay in a Global Vacation Home!!!!

I don’t know how you guys feel, but I think a vacation to Walt Disney World can often be exhausting! It is incredibly important to feel comfortable and able to relax in the place you’re calling “home” for the duration. Our family has thoroughly enjoyed staying in different accommodations in Orlando and there are lots of choices available from Global Resort Homes

“From 2-bedroom upscale condos to spacious 7-bedroom homes, you’re sure to find accommodations that will suit your every need. Unlike traditional hotel rooms and Orlando hotel properties that offer minimal accommodations and amenities, vacation homes in Orlando offer the added space and functionality that can make all the difference in the world.”

Sounds amazing, right? We’ve timed this contest just perfect too because you have until December 24th to enter and the winner will be announced on Christmas day! What a fun holiday surprise this could be for next year’s vacation!! Please start your entry by leaving a comment below and telling me why you think staying in a vacation home would make your vacation more fabulous than ever and then follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter for easy entry!

  1. I can’t even tell you how amazing it would be to be able to spend 7 nights in a vacation home for our next trip to Disney. I have been wondering how I am going to make a Disney vacation a reality for 2012, and with the 3 little ones, and wanting to take my mother with us (can’t do Disney with 3 little ones by myself!), a vacation home would be perfect.

  2. I have always wanted to stay in a vacation home and this would be a great way to do so.

  3. My favorite thing about a vacation home is the additional space – especially separate bedrooms for the kids!

  4. Staying in a vacation home would make my Orlando vacation more fabulous than ever if I could talk my 4 sisters into going with me. With the extra space…I might actually convince them to come.

    Fabulous giveaway Jackie!! Besides having laundry facilities in the home I love the idea of having a swimming pool at the house! ;D 

  6. Natalie Shmigelsky says:

    AWESOME giveaway!!  My fav amenities to have is definitely a washer/dryer in the unit/home as well as a fully stocked kitchen.  I have two little ones so eating out all day every day is not a good option ;) Its also nice to have a swimming pool all to yourself!

  7. The kitchens are definitely my favorite amenity! The amount of money you can save by having a kitchen is mind boggling. & the laundry services would be really great, that means not having to put on cold wet swimming suits. :)

    I would love to stay at a vacation home so the kids wouldn’t have to figure out who gets the bed! Having one boy and one girl, they opt for some fancy negotiating to figure out who sleeps on the trundle bed or roll away and who gets the big bed when we stay at a resort. Often the negotiating includes a dessert sacrifice!

  9. Can I just say the one bedroom will give me and my husband some much needed privacy and will help us not have to turn in the same time as the kids!

  10. Ashley R. says:

    The hot tub would be my favorite amenity. It would be so great to relax after a long day in the parks. I would love to stay in a vacation home. There would more space and additional family could join us (my mom). :) 

  11. I like that the pool & hot tub are private, especially when I do not feel up to wearing a bathing suit in public. :-)

  12. Staying in a vacation home would be great so that I could stay with my entire family (including parents, sister and nephews) at a much more reasonable cost than what we’d pay to stay at a villa on the Disney property.

  15. Wow…this is an amazing giveaway!!  This would be so fun with a great group of friends!!

  16. This is a really great contest idea! Good luck to everyone. Staying in a vacation home would be great because more of my friends could come with me. Just imagine the party you could have!

  17. Laura Insausti says:

    Awesome giveaway! I would LOVE to win!

  18. Awesome!  A home is perfect because you can cook meals and save on food expense! 

  19. I think a home is perfect becasue you have more room for more family members which makes for a better vacation!!!! 

  20. I know it sounds boring, but having a washer & dryer in your resort room is sooooo helpful!!!

  21. I love that they come with a fully furnished kitchen and a washer dryer

  22. With a family of 6 having all that space PLUS a kitchen to cook in PLUS a private pool, would really make the whole vacation less stressful and more affordable!
