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 DVCMom.com 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!

Now, for the fine print…

*Not available to anyone who has won a prize with Global in the past 6 months, active/inactive Global staff, or affiliated companies.
*Prizes are not transferable.
*Entrants MUST be 25 years of age or older.
*Black out dates apply – March, April, June, July of 2012, and December 20, 2012-January 4, 2013
*Valid for stays completed by December 20, 2012.
*Prize is valid for a 7 night stay in a Global Resort Home, 4 bedroom or larger, with a pool, based on availability.
*Actual property will not be guaranteed until 2 weeks prior to travel; however, once dates are chosen, winners WILL be guaranteed a home.

You can also follow Global Resort Homes on Twitter and Facebook for current specials.

Custom Park Plans from Monorail Magic Giveaway!

I don’t know about you guys, but when I went on my first trip to Walt Disney World, I had to buy one of those coupon organizers to bring all of my notes and information I had printed out from the internet and kept it organized with tiny labels! I even had a 1/2 inch binder to go along with it! I know from first-hand experience that if you don’t have a plan prior to your WDW vacation, you may end up rather frustrated and exhausted after your trip and let’s face it, that’s no fun.

Our friends over at Monorail Magic have created a fabulous plan that can be customized to your budget, dates, and group size, making a well-planned vacation for you. Here’s a small example of a custom plan:

They even have a plan for a monorail tour, which I think is an awesome way to take a break from the parks. We always like to have a pool or easy day in between busy park days. Please don’t underestimate the power of an easy day!

Being a Disneyland goer for years, when I started planning our first WDW vacation I was really overwhelmed by all the information out there. There are so many apps, blogs, tips and tools…I didn’t know where to begin. We all know that a vacation to Walt Disney World can cost thousands of dollars. I’ve seen families touring the parks that are obviously very frustrated with lines and what not. It’s so easy to avoid that. You must have a plan and that’s why I’m hosting this fabulous giveaway! This is the very first giveaway I’ve ever hosted, so I’m making it easy on you and using Rafflecopter for easy entries!
