As a disney vacation club member, if I'm not at disney, I'm planning my next trip. My favorite thing about disney vacations is the relaxed family time we get together. It really is a magical place that has something for all of us, from my 10 year old daughter to my 18 year old son; from us as parents to the grandparents. We go nearly every year and we'll never tire of it. Thank you for the chance to win!

We've been to Disney World 5 times, and hope to experience Disneyland in the next few years!

My favorite part (along with not cooking or cleaning for a week) is the family time - we seem to laugh harder and more often while at Disney. What a treat to spend un-interrupted time together!

Thanks for the chance to win :)

Hi Cathy. Love goodies from Shannon! Awesome giveaway :-D.

I have been to the Disney parks in Orlando in 1996 and to Eurodisney in Paris in 2013. My favorite attraction is the Tower of Terror. Totally awesome and cool!
Have a great weekend.

We've been to Disney World many many many times. We absolutely love it. We're even surprising my 8 year old with a weekend trip in June for Star Wars weekends. We're so excited. Our favorite ride is Test Track!

We have been to both Disney World and Disney Land. My favorite memory is the fireworks above the castle--magical!

We just went to all four parks last week with four kids under 10 and five adults. It was a surprisingly good time :-) I enjoyed Animal Kingdom. The safari was amazing, the parade fun and the dinosaur ride was thrilling. Thanks for a chance to win.

Disney has an amazing level of detail. The more you go, the more you see.

Thank you for the chance.

Yes, I have! My husband and I went to Animal Kingdom when I was 8 month pregnant. My favorite thing was laughing together at the park. I was glad to make some two of us memories before our baby comes!

The rides by far.
The long waits and over priced food less so, but the rides are where the magic happens for me.

I love Disney! I grew up in southern California near Disneyland and visited the park often. When I graduated from high school we celebrated our Grad Night after graduation at Disneyland. The park was open all night for graduates. As a newlywed we lived close enough to Disneyland that we were able to watch the nightly fireworks from our front yard. Fun memories. Now I live in Texas and don't have the opportunity to go to a Disney park often. I think my favorite Disney memory is taking a vacation to show my Texas born children where I grew up and part of that trip was a day at Disneyland. I loved giving my children the opportunity to enjoy the wonder and fun of Disney like I did when I was their age.

It's sad to say, but no, I've never been to Disney. Having two Disney obsessed kiddlets and my own deprived childhood has lead me to plan a trip in the next few months. I'd love a kit to document that monumental event. ;-)

Yes, more times than I can even count! It's where our family has gone for vacations over the years so it has such fabulous memories for me. For me it's the whole ambiance that I love. . . the eye candy everywhere, the wonderful smells of special treats, the eager excitement on the kid's faces, the special decorations at various holidays. Just love that place!

When I was little my favorite was It's A Small World.

I'm so lucky to have the "famous mouse" 20 mins. away from my house. I love Disney and my favorite park is Magic Kingdom. I've been to all of WDW's 4 parks and my favorites are the ones that Walt (Disney) himself created. We camp at Disney's Ft. Wilderness every so often (again another resort created by Walt). The man was a genus mind for imagination seen at Magic Kingdom every day. Disney World never gets old and will continue to be magic for the future generations. I wish I could afford the FL resident prices. :-) thanks for Dreaming and Doing Walt Disney!

For a short time I lived in SoCal, so I had an annual pass to Disneyland and went a total of 19 times. I love Disneyland. It always made me feel at home, even if normally I felt so far away from home or lonely. The place is just magical. Lots of memories there and can't wait to visit again this summer!

I've been to Disney World and Disneyland. We're actually going back to Disneyland next week. I don't know if I have a favorite thing except DH lets me take his picture there unlike at home. :)

I went when I was a teenager, but didn't really appreciate it at the time. We went again last summer and my favorite thing was watching my daughter's reactions to everything. She had a blast!

Shannon is one of my favorite digital designs. I love her pattern papers.
When I lived in Michigan, we visited WDW in 1973 & 1994. Since I moved to Florida, we have not been to any of the parks but visit WDW every year. (Long story.)

My hubby and I went to Disney World in 1989... But I grew up in Southern California and my first trip to Disneyland was about 1965 - my first love was the Dumbo ride... but throughout the years .. I participated in the Candlelight Procession several years (Dec in the '70's) .. and Marching in the parades with my H.S. Band in the same timeframe.. plus going to DL with my family and my friends.. then when I had my own child we went several times and it was so much fun watching him experience "The Magic" ... and then many years later watching him march in a parade with his H.S. band (and we had moved to Arizona by then.)

So my "favorite" is "THE MAGIC" ...

I've been to Disneyland numerous times. My favorite part hands down is the look on my kids faces and their excitement each day as we entered the park. The family time together is priceless. And riding Splash Mountain over and over again on a rainy day is pretty cool!

I've been to Disney World and loved it, but my best Disney experience was our Disney Cruise. It was amazing.

I went to Disneyworld when I was 10 and loved it...

I've been to Disneyland a few times. I hate the log ride but will do it for the family picture which I love to get each time we go. It usually has me screaming and my family laughing! Fun times.

DisneyWorld. First time was two years after it opened and the only parks were Magic Kingdom and Epcot (Festival of Nations wasn't wholly built). I love everything about WDW! Give me the characters (Remy stopped by our table at Chefs de France in 2011...too cool!), the rides...though not a big fan of the water rides in the "regular" parks, the flowers, EVERYTHING!!! Probably why I volunteered to be a chaperone for the senior trip to WDW. Can't wait!

I grew up and live near Disneyland so I have been quite a few times. I love Space Mountain! My husband and I are planning a trip to Disneyworld in the coming year so these would be great for scrapbooking our trip. Thanks for the chance.

I live 20 minutes from Disneyland and for years would know the time 935 pm because that is when the fireworks would start. My favorite thing about Disney is watching my children and now grand children's faces as they take in the wonderful make believe of the Park.

I went to Disneyland the year it opened, and have photos of my sister and me on rides that are long gone. When my hubby and I went beck to Disneyland, he loved the Pearly Band, still talks about it. We've been to Disney World numerous times, once at Christmas which was truly magical, fake snow and all.

We've been to Disneyland. Love the rides, the beautiful grounds, the food--love it all!

Our family has visited all four parks at Walt Disney World. My favorite thing? The gracious way guests are treated by the employees. Walt's spirit lives on in their customer service. (BTW: thanks for introducing me to a new source for supplies to scrap those trip photos!)

We LOVE to see the kids excitement and the family time is priceless for us.

It has been over 30 years since we've been to a Disney park. Have grandchildren time to go again!

I have been to Disneyland a few times. My favorite times were when it was "reserved" when my husband worked for Southern California Gas Company. It was soooo nice having to run through the line accommodations. That was my first experience at Disneyland...when I went the first time that it wasn't reserved I thought I'd die of claustrophobia....guess being spoiled isn't always a good thing. Thanks for the opportunity.

Unfortunately, I am one of the few to have never been to a Disney Park! I think I would enjoy EPCOT, but since I have no small children nor any grands, the other parks have no appeal! Maybe someday!

Our family has been to Disney World and my favorite part is watching the AWE of my children as they visit each of the parks with all the characters.

I've never been to Disney, but I hope to get there soon. My boys are asking. Thanks for the chance.

I've been to Disneyland a few times, Tokyo Disney and Disney Sea. Love the parades there, and the Tokyo Disney Sea parade is on the water!

My girls were 5 and 7 when we went to Disney in Orlando - and I will NEVER forget their faces when they saw Pooh and Mickey and the castle for the first time - it brings tears to my eyes. It was truly magical and they had so. much. fun.

Disney World once when I was about 10 - don't remember much about the trip. Disneyland California twice. My favourite the first time was just walking around and taking in the sights. We went in November and one day it was regular Disney and the next day all the Christmas decorations were out including the giant tree near the entrance!! The second time it's the familiarity with the park and not having to rush around to see everything. Having the kids pick their favs and just relaxing was the best part!

Fun! We just went to WDW in February, and had a wonderful time. It's hard to pick a favorite, but I think maybe watching my boys participate in Jedi Training at Star Tours in Hollywood Studios would be it. :)

We love Disney! Been to Disneyland and DisneyWorld. Love it all, but especially the parades!

Recently returned from our not quite annual trip to Disneyland! Best place on earth when you have younger kids!!

I have been to Disney World and Disney Land. My favorite thing about Disney is the pure euphoria that my children display when at Disney. I can not think of a more clear representation of "living the dream" from a child's perspective than what the Disney experience offers.

I have been to Disney World several times. I love everything about Disney, but most of all, I love that you can be a "kid" when you are there.

I have been to Disney Land and Disney World. I love how happy people are when they see familiar Disney characters.

Our family has visited Walt Disney World four times and we hope to return this fall. The best part is the magic of it all.

I have never even been to a country that has a Disney World, let alone one of the parks - one can only dream

I've been to Eurodisney once and loved the magic. The faces of my little kids, so totallu in love with everything - Magic.

I dream of Disney World more nights than I don't. We're big Disnerds in my house. My favorite thing (well, besides everything) is that feeling in the pit of your stomach at lunchtime on a Tuesday where you know that the only thing you have to do is have fun and act goofy and you get to do it all over again tomorrow. There's just nowhere else like it!

I've never been to a Disney park...but we're talking about visiting now since we have a 2½ year old daughter. We didn't think we'd have kids nor an excuse to go but now that we do, we're getting excited to plan a trip to see how our daughter experiences it. :-)

Mickey Mouse was my first love! I am currently planning our nect trip to the mouse house in October.

I've been to Disneyland more than I can count. My favorite thing about it is hanging around and people watching. It's amazing who visits the park....

I'm a bit of a Disney World fan...I've been 20 times (and I live 1800 miles away!). I love, love, love that everyone is young at heart in that magical place. And that I can get dole whips and Grey Goose Limon slushies. :)

My husband and I went to Disney World for our honeymoon and returned 6years later with our small children. We haven't been in almost 20 years! My favorite memory is seeing Disney and Disney characters through their eyes.

I went to Tokyo Disneyland in 1997 (I was in grade 11) as part of an amazing school trip (from Australia). As we pulled into the carpark the youngest in our group said "I can't believe we are at the place where many kids dying wish is to visit here". This boy was probably 14 and he never came across as so caring and compassionate. It touched me then and still does today.

We went to Disneyland in Anaheim when my son was 18 months old in 1997. In 2012 we were fortunate enough to go to Disneyland Hong Kong with our now 17 year old son and 14 year old daughter. What I loved is that the relatively newish Disneyland HK was familiar in appearance and layout to that of Disneyland Anaheim even though it was 15 years between the visits. My favorite thing from the visit with our kids was experiencing that same magical feeling of awe and delight as we walked through the park but this time it was even better as they were old enough to remember it all with us afterwards.

I went to both Walt Disney World and Disneyland as a kid. My favourite rides were the Haunted House, the Pirates of the Caribbean, and Star Tours. I'm planning to take my 3 girls to Disneyland for the 1st time next year, so this would be AWESOME!

Gosh, I love these Disney kits. It's been quite a few years since I was at WDW, but we've got a trip planned for later this year and hopefully the best thing about it will be watching the kids "enjoy the magic".
Thanks so much for the chance to win!

Yes, and honestly, I love everything about the parks. I just love Disney! Thanks for the chance to win!

I've been to Disney World and Disneyland and love them. I like the "above and beyond" things that Disney does to make a guests experience as enjoyable as possible.

When our four boys were growing up we went to Disney World every couple of years and I have so many wonderful memories of those vacations. It truly was the happiest place on earth for our family.

Cute kits from SGD. I've been to Disney World 3 times, one of those as an adult and loved that visit because I immediately felt like a kid again!

We have been to Disneyland and also Disney world. I think the best was this last trip when I convinced my parents to come with us. Not only did my kids have fun hanging out with grandma and grandpa, but we actually got them on a few "scary rides".

Usually go to Disneyland several times a year!! Am only a 6 hour drive down Hwy 5.
As for Disneyworld!!! May 5th!!!!!! My first time!!!!!
These kits would be perfect!!!!!

Love our memories of Disneyland in Paris. These kits would be perfect. Thanks for this chance.

We have been to both Disney World and Disney Land. My kids are 6 years apart and its the only place where everyone gets along and we can all ride on the majority of the rides together! Disney is truly a family experience! I love Disney Parks!!! I have Disney pictures from last month's Spring Break to scrap. These kits would be PERFECT to scrap my trip!

We just took our 4 and 7 year old to Disney World in January and so I would LOVE to win this! My favorite part was when my 7-year old son having ridden the haunted house ride once with his dad already wanted to take me on it. He was very concerned I would be frightened and so the entire time we waited in line to get on the ride he prepped me on all that would happen so I would not be too "scared."

I lived in Southern California (Pasadena) for a long time, and always had an annual pass to Disneyland. I used to go down there and study for the afternoon, then ride a couple of rides, eat dinner and go home. Even after I moved away, we used to take our kids to DL at least twice a year. 5 years ago we moved to the East Coast so WDW became our new park and our yearly destination every fall. I love the Animal Kingdom so much - I could go to that park alone for an entire week!

I think my favorite thing about every Disney park is the magic that you feel as soon as you cross through the gate. Your heart gets younger and your world gets lighter. Everything is just a little but more amazing inside the parks, and it's incredible how so many years after its inception, Walt's dream is still alive there (even if sometimes you have to look behind the newly installed Starbucks to see it).

My SECOND favorite thing is the Food and Wine Festival at Epcot. OH. MY. GOD. That alone would be worth a trip to Florida.

been to disneyworld and disneyland and I just love the whole package of fun family times from the hotels and parks and all the magic that takes place there. thanks for the chance to win!!!

love the magic that this place inspires...makes me feel like a kid again!

I live two hours from Disney World and am lucky enough to have gone there many times. I love the relaxed feeling you get when you know you can take your time, kick back, and just enjoy without rushing around. I love hunting for hidden Mickey's, playing Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom and listening to my favorite musicians in the parks.

My favorite moment, however, happens every time I go to Disney. It's that moment when the car drives under the Disney World arch and I know I'm on Disney property. Despite the fact that I am far from being a kid anymore, in that moment I always feel like I'm coming home. No matter what stress is going on in my life, it all fades once I enter Disney property.

A few weeks ago I was in Disneyland in Paris with my school. Space mountain is my favorite attraction.

I have been to Disneyland four times and once to Walt Disney World. While there is much to love about Disney, our favorite thing is watching the sheer joy and wonder our children experience each time we go.

I can't even remember how many times we took our kids to DisneyWorld and Disneyland when they were growing up. Now we're looking forward to taking our three year old grandson and our grown "kids" as well. My favorite memory is watching the faces of my children as they experienced the joy of Disney...magical indeed!

We have never been, never had the money. Maybe one day!

I am lucky enough to live about 92 minutes away, depending on traffic so we go all the time and have lots of pictures we can use on those cool papers. My favorite thing is when my 13 year old son talks about his memories of Disney World as he holds my hand and we walk down main street or around the world showcase at Epcot. Memories last forever and that's why I go there as often as I can!

We are planning our dream visit with kids to Disney this summer. The kits look great!

We just did spring break at Disney Word - my first time. I loved that you could put away reality and get lost in the magical worlds.

:) do I have to only pick one?!?! I <3 Disney!

I grew up going to Disneyland all the time (had annual passes). My favorite thing was getting clam chowder in a bread bowl, especially on cold days after getting soaked on Splash Mountain.

I live in New Zealand and for my 40th birthday (which is today) present I am taking my kids to Disneyland in Anaheim later in the year. I can't wait to see them enjoy the magic of Disney - and I can be a big kid right along side them :)

We have been lucky to get to disneyworld in florida and dusneyland in anaheim which us s long way when you live in new zealand. Best thing was the kids look if excitment and meeting my idol donald. The coolest duck in the world.

Our family loves Disney. Surprised our Grandkids with a trip to Disney as a Christmas gift a couple of years back and we have the most amazing time. We've been there at least 7 times. The best part is staying on the grounds (We Love Carribean Beach) and just enjoying family time.

Never been. Want to go soon! :)

Love us some Disney around here. We leave on Saturday for a fun filled week at the park. Favorite you ask...people watching while eating pineapple whips...oh you mean the rides... hands down Pirates of the Caribbean, Indiana Jones, Jungle Cruise and Tower of Terror!

I was at Disney World years ago with my family. We stayed in the park and were there for 5 glorious days. It was the BEST vacation ever!! My favorite place was The Magic Kingdom. Seeing the characters and the excitement of all the kids was absolutely wonderful!! I LOVED Tower of Terror and Pirates of the Caribbean!! Small World was cool, too. It was a great stay!!

I was living in Ft. Lauderdale when WDW opened during my freshman year of high school. We would take yearly family trips to WDW after that and I had a few high school excursions there with friends. As an adult I have been several times -- the most recent trips in 1997 (with a 5 year old, a 9 month old and 5 months pregnant) and 2004 (kids ages 12, 8, 7). I love Main Street, Illuminations, Dole Whip in Adventureland and the fireworks each night. I think the only way to do it is to splurge and to stay at an onsite hotel -- I have stayed at Grand Floridian, Wilderness Lodge, Contemporary and the Polynesian. I enjoy most of the rides, but Teacups have always made me nauseous (and I never usually get sick!).
Love Scotty Girl stuff -- Hope I win!

Writing in long form requires an almost Herculean ability to delay gratification.

My family and I have been to both Disney World and Disneyland. I love relaxing on Tom Sawyer Island in Disney World. It's usually a great place to escape the crowds, rock in rocking chairs, and unwind before hitting the rides again and catching some more shows.

I've been to all of the Orlando parks multiple times each, and I don't know what ISN'T to love! In my book, they ARE Tthe happiest places on earth! I would be thrilled to win, since I have tons of Disney photos just waiting to be scrapped. Thanks for the opportunity!

My favorite thing about Disney World Orlando (we went over 25 years ago)was Space Mountain!

We took our boys to disney when they were 7 and 9, it was magical! We liked Epcot center the best! We stayed in a park resort, and it was excellent!
