We’re Giving Away a Vacation-a-Day Through January 31, 2014 During the Family Time Resolutions Sweepstakes!

posted on December 31st, 2013 by Thomas Smith, Editorial Content Director, Disney Parks

We’re celebrating the New Year early at Disney Parks with an opportunity to win a 5-day/4-night vacation for four to either the Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort.

Walt Disney World Resort Sends 2012 out with a Bang

2014 is the year to resolve to spend more fun time together as a family and there’s no better place than the parks to play together and show your Disney Side – the side of you that says “yes” more often, laughs louder and lives life to the fullest.

We’ve just launched where Disney celebrities are sharing how they plan to resolve to spend more time with family in 2014. A new video will be uploaded everyday in January.

On, we are also awarding a vacation-a-day from December 31, 2013 through January 31, 2014! So enter every day for your chance to win because this is the year to spend more quality time with the people you love most. Good luck!

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Void where prohibited. Open only to individuals, who are, as of Entry, legal residents of, and physically located within, the 50 U.S., D.C., Puerto Rico or Canada (excluding Quebec) and who are not Minors. Sweepstakes starts 12:01 AM (EST) on 12/31/13 and ends 11:59:59 PM (EST) on 1/31/14. Click here for Official Rules.

Greetings Thomas,

What a wonderful contest and open to Canadians too! Is it possible to fix the field that asks for Zip/Postal Code? It’s not accepting the one I type in, therefore not allowing me to complete my entry.
Thank you for your time in advance,
Happy New Year


Patrick from ON on December 31st, 2013 at 9:49 am

There’s a surprising end to 2013 and beginning of 2014! Keep these kinds of surprises coming, Disney! Thanks for posting this, Thomas.
I tried entering this morning, but the entry form consistently informs me that I am entering my postal code wrong (I am from Canada) – so I can’t submit my entry. I have sent a message to Disney online support, but I thought I would post here as well in case other potential entrants have the same issue.


Lisa on December 31st, 2013 at 10:08 am

Another request to fix the postal/zip code section of the entry form so we Canadians can actually enter please! And hurry please, so we can enter today’s draw!


Donna from ON on December 31st, 2013 at 10:52 am

Another Canadia who can’t complete the form, due to the error in the zip/postal code.

More family time especially at WDW is always a great idea!


Shannon on December 31st, 2013 at 11:25 am

Are we allowed one entry per day per email or one entry per day per name (and subsequent entries with different email accounts would be void)? I ask because I have more than one email account. If it is one per day per mail account, then I could enter multiple times per day under my one name with different email addresses.


Melissa on December 31st, 2013 at 11:43 am

Yay! We Love these contests. We would love it even more if we could be a winner :) Thanks Disney Parks. Hope to see you soon.

(Also from Canada. Zip code/postal not working)


Megan on December 31st, 2013 at 12:16 pm

Fellow Canadian here!

As much as I would love to keep my fellow Canucks in the dark, giving me an ever-so-minuscule edge, I thought I might share how entering my postal code worked for me!

Hopefully this works for you. It was a matter of formatting. I simply used all capital letters and a space in the middle, like so; A8A 8A8 and voilà. Worked out fine for me…. Or maybe I’m just lucky.

Good luck fellow Dis ey-phillies!


Evelyn on December 31st, 2013 at 12:55 pm

This is always exciting stuff. I will participate again, as I did last year. But can I please ask a favor? last time, I never saw a list of who won?

Thanks and Happy New Year!


Marisa from WI on December 31st, 2013 at 3:23 pm

•You are ineligible to enter this sweepstakes.
I read the terms of Use, what are we doing wrong.


Rochelle on December 31st, 2013 at 7:37 pm

What’s the Grand Prize? All the contest rules state is that there are 32 daily trips (one for today and each on the 31 days of January).


Hilda from MS on January 1st, 2014 at 2:36 am

FAMILY has been my life. I would so love to win a trip to Disney for my family. Also, I will turn 60 on Feb. 22 and my husband will turn 65 on Feb 6. Would love one more celebration at Disney World (at Disney’s expense), This will be the 9th trip for me and the children/ grandchildren that I bring. I even brought my mother around 1992. I am so thankful for that since she passed away in 2009 and I came back to Disney in Nov of 2009 (the happiest place on earth) since I was not very happy. Please choose me. We cannot afford to all come together and I do not know how many more times I can physically make the Disney trip.


Hilda from MS on January 1st, 2014 at 2:42 am

I have longed for a cast member to come up to me and say they have chosen my to spend the night in Cinderella’s Castle, or ride in a parade, or some other majical experience. Are their any tips to get picked for this? Who chooses someone to give it to? HELP!!! My dream is about to end and I don’t want to wake up, yet. CHOOSE ME, CHOOSE ME, CHOOSE ME,…


Jason on January 1st, 2014 at 9:09 am

I can’t even get onto the site to enter. I don’t know if it is just my computer or it is busy.


Denise on January 1st, 2014 at 9:58 am

Fellow Canadian here, I tried many times yesterday to enter but I too had issues with my Postal Code. Today I simply used my cap lock key and it worked :) Good Luck!


April from OH on January 1st, 2014 at 10:21 am

Best way EVER to start the new year! Took my family to WDW the first week of December for a holiday celebration. That’s the beauty of a Disney vacation . . . you have a great time, but you HAVE to go back because there’s so much else to do!


Nancy on January 1st, 2014 at 12:26 pm

Shannon (comment #5) – The way I’m understanding the official rules, it’s one entry per day per person, regardless of if you have multiple email addresses (listed under 4. Limitations – lines 8 & 9). So you can’t enter multiple times with different email addresses. Also, if you share an email address with someone (like a family email address), only one person can enter using that address.


Nancy on January 1st, 2014 at 12:33 pm

Rochelle (comment #10) – The Grand prize is exactly the same as the daily prize. I had to read the rules about 4 times before I figured that out (In the 3. Entry paragraph it says: The last Daily Sweepstakes (January 31, 2014) shall be hereinafter sometimes referred to as the “Grand Sweepstakes”.)


Anonymous on January 1st, 2014 at 5:55 pm

Spectacular sweepstakes! The daily videos is quite entertaining. Great resolution ideas!! I’m entering daily and hope we win!!!! We have never been to Walt Disney World and my 2 grandchildren would absolutely love it!!!


Michele on January 2nd, 2014 at 1:55 am

Love this sweepstakes and the prize! I would like to enter, but keep getting an Oops message. I tried several times yesterday and today, and using different browsers on my computer, not mobile, but no luck. I am qualified. (AZ resident, over 18, etc.) Please help! I would love to win a trip for my family. I’ve already missed 2 chances.


Robin on January 2nd, 2014 at 2:11 am

We would simply LOVE to visit Disney World or DisneyLand!! This is a great contest and would make a wonderful Graduation gift for my Tween Girls who are graduating in 2014!!! Best of luck to all those entering!


Marci on January 2nd, 2014 at 10:40 am

We spent about $2500 on our Disney vacation last year. How awesome would it be to win a vacation and be able to afford to bring more family this year (hint, hint, wink, wink) lol :)


Anonymous on January 2nd, 2014 at 11:33 am

Happy New Year to all the Disney Cast members who have made my past visits so special! My New Year’s resolution is to ride the Mine Train in Fantasyland in 2014! How special it would be if my family members could ride it with me for free!!!!
My Disney “bucket list” is to be the fairy godmother in a Disney parade!


Elizabeth on January 3rd, 2014 at 7:37 am

I love the new Disney New Balance shoes. I can’t be at the park when the shoes are going to be sold. Please offer these shoes to people who could not be there. I would buy at least two pair for myself and a pair for each of my grand children. My husband would surely buy a pair as well. Thank you for your time.


Amber on January 3rd, 2014 at 12:38 pm

Would love to win this :) We have two kids age 6 and almost 3 that would absolutely love to go and see their favorite characters!! (Not to mention mom and dad would love a vacation getaway as well)! Excited for a chance at such an amazing trip!!!


Molly on January 3rd, 2014 at 4:51 pm

This would be an absolute DREAM to win!!! I absolutely LOVE Disney and Disney World and have been wanting to take my family to go but have been un able to afford too! Thank you so much for the chance of possibility! :) Happy New Year!!!!


Effie on January 3rd, 2014 at 9:05 pm

Jessica on January 4th, 2014 at 9:31 am

Hello Sir/Ma’am, possibly being selected as winner would be the icing on the cake. I’m in the military & currently deployed overseas and will be returning home after being gone for 6 months in March 2014. This would be perfect gift for my son as he loves Disney as so do my spouse and I. This would be a perfect recovery trip!! I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed!! Good luck to everyone and God Bless!!!

Cheshire on January 5th, 2014 at 6:14 pm

Hello Thomas,
I just had a question. We live in Florida, but we were wondering if we had a choice of whether to go to Disneyland or Disney World, as we so would prefer to go to Disneyland. I know it states that if you are within 250 miles from the park airline tickets would not be included.


Karen on January 5th, 2014 at 6:38 pm

I would LOVE to win a trip to either Disney. I have to admit, I am confused about the prizes and “terms of use” . This is not like Disney. Can the promoter provide more information in everyday language?


Rose on January 6th, 2014 at 3:06 pm

Winning the trip would be a great beginning to the new year. My 3 year old son would tremendous love meeting Mickey and the Gang. He was recently diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and has been such a strong boy and deserves something special like Disney World


Elizabeth on January 6th, 2014 at 3:28 pm

Are Cast Members and their families eligible to enter this contest?


Stephen from Merseyside on January 7th, 2014 at 7:13 am

It would be nice if you allowed Uk residents to enter, even if we had to pay our own airfare.


Lorenda on January 9th, 2014 at 8:43 pm

PLEASE make my wish come true!!! my dad is 71 and wants to go to disney, would love to take him to the place dreams come true


Karen from WI on January 9th, 2014 at 8:48 pm

What an absolutely MAGICAL way to start 2014 ! Congrats in advance to all the winners. Try to put some “pixie dust” in each of your days. It will put a smile on someone’s face (and yours too)

I would love the opportunity to take my son to Disney. He loves Mickey and Jake and to see his expressions would be priceless and a magical memory


JANIE on January 27th, 2014 at 5:34 pm

We have been to Disney World to take our grandchildren and we are down to two that haven’t been. It is definitely worth all the money we have spent on the times we have been in the past years.

This is such a great giveaway. I would love love love to win one of these packages as we really want to take these two little girls as soon as we can. Right now it looks like we can’t bring them until 2015 or 2016 (that is unless we win one of these gand prizes LOL!!! These two are going to love every little second of Disney and I just hope to get to bring them soon. I want them to come whil they are still at an age that they will love the MAGIC of Disney and not just the rides they can get on and the food and gifts!

We love you Disney World!!! Janie in Texas
