Airlines, bloggers, cruise lines, and resorts flood our inboxes daily with travel contests and sweepstakes. The prizes are always tempting, but it’s tough to figure out which giveaways are worth your valuable time (and contact information) and which you should demote to the spam folder. To up your odds of scoring a free vacation, we’ll feature one travel contest each week – and say why it’s worth your while.
Contest: Funjet Vacations’ Fairy Tale Adventure contest sends three families on a three-night, all-expenses-paid trip to Disney World for four, but just one clan will score a stay in the elusive, by-invitation-only Cinderella Castle Suite atop the park’s palace. A Facebook photo contest selects the three families (two chosen by popular vote, a third elected by Funjet), and the winner of an in-park scavenger hunt nabs a night in the castle – on 11/11/11, to make it all even more magical.
Ease of Entry: Easy. Just “like” the Funjet Vacations Facebook page, and upload a photo that showcases your Disney fanaticism.
Value: Priceless: Disney opens the Cinderella Castle suite by invitation only.
Odds of Winning: Three families will win a trip for four to Disney World, two chosen by popular vote and one selected by Funjet execs. As of publishing this post, 843 people had entered.
Deadline: October 4 (so hurry!)
Details: Visit the Funjet Vacations Facebook page to enter by October 4, and be ready to head to Orlando from November 9 to 12.
Verdict: If you have any Disney-related snapshots, this is a super easy contest to enter. Any trip to Disney World will be pricey, but the Cinderella Castle suite makes this a prize worth hustling for. One caveat: We imagine winning will require some serious get-out-the-vote efforts, so be prepared to nag all of your friends about voting while the contest is underway.
