Growing Up Disney Birthday Kick-off & Giveaway #1 Winners

We will soon be celebrating our one year blogoversary.  It's April 26, but I love stretching out my own birthday, so why not party here for a month?  Plus, it seems to be Disney's way too.  Wasn't the Cakestle up for a year and a half?

Please check with us throughout the month for special giveaways from Growing Up Disney, Travel with the Magic, Beyond the Attractions, and Eversave Orlando.

I'll also be highlighting our wonderful team (my family), our Minnie Moms, guest posters, former giveaway sponsors, and any other thank yous I can work in to the schedule.

I hope you have fun celebrating along with us.

--------------------------------------

To start the party, let's give away a couple of favors.  On his recent trip to Walt Disney World, Ridge bought these two pins to give to our readers.  Epcot is a wonderful place all the time, but now it's transformed for the Flower and Garden Festival.  These annual passholder and DVC exclusive pins will help remind you of this beautiful time of year.  We have two pins, so let's have two winners.

  1. Hey guys! I gotta say my favorite time to visit Disney is when they put up all the fall decorations. I love all the pumpkins and Halloween items. I can wait to celebrate with you guys all month long. I love making my birthday last as long as I can.

  2. My favorite time to visit is early October -- the Epcot Food & Wine event is going, the fall decorations are up, and the weather is usually great! But truly, anytime is fine by us!

  3. My favorite time of year at Disney is the first week in January. Why, you ask? Well, it starts Value season for the resorts, all the crowds have just come and gone for Christmas, and to top it all off most of the Christmas decor is still up. On our last visit we park hopped, and on the first couple days we got to see all of the parks all done up for Christmas. By the end of our stay they had completely redecorated everything. It was fun to see everything two different ways, and we were amazed at how quickly it all happened!

  9. Any time of year is my favorite, really! :) But if I was going to pick one time, it would probably be right in between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The crowds are lower but all the Christmas decorations are up. Magical!

  13. And my favorite time to visit WDW is Labor Day week, because the crowds are usually low. It's still steamy, but it makes the daily rain showers just that much more refreshing!
