Win A VIP Holiday Celebration Day At Disneyland!

Have you ever been to Disneyland during the holiday season?

I haven't, but that's soon to be remedied since my family's been invited to a special VIP Holiday Celebration at Disneyland on November 21st. I'm super excited about the opportunity because we always have such a good time when we go, and I like creating good, positive memories for my sons, moments I know they'll smile over for the rest of their lives.

But you know what's even more exciting then my family getting to go? I get to take a lucky Los Angelista reader --and his or her three guests-- with me!

Yes, you read that correctly! Disneyland has generously offered to let me select one of my readers to also attend the VIP Holiday Celebration at the Disneyland Resort on November 21, 2009! You're going to get to be my special holiday guest!

Before we get to how to enter, let's get the rules out of the way:
1) Winners do not have to live in the Los Angeles/Orange County area, however they must provide their own transportation to Anaheim on Nov 21, 2009. While parking will be provided for one vehicle, hotel room or other travel/transportation costs are not included.
2) This is a special VIP Disney experience which will include a holiday party for the entire family (4 max) and a visits to the park with special VIP fun arranged. Winner must attend the actual event and be willing to remain with the entire VIP group for the duration of the day/evening.

3) Winners (and guests) must also be willing to be photographed or filmed by Disneyland Press Relations as well as Los Angelista.

4) This is a non-transferable give-away, and winners are not permitted to sell/donate/give-away their spot.

5) Winners will be present as guests of Los Angelista, made possible by the generosity
of Disneyland Resort Media Relations.

Sound good? I sure hope so, because here's how you enter:
1) Be a Los Angelista Fan: Become a fan of Los Angelista on Facebook by clicking here!

2) Create Your Entry: By 11:59 p.m. PST on Friday, October 16, 2009 send me a photo of you and your three guests, your full name, email address, blog url (if applicable) and a short (250 words or less) explanation of why Los Angelista should take you to Disneyland. Feel free to get creative and/or funny with both your photo and your "essay". I'm not looking for, "My foot got chopped off and I have leprosy and I've never been kissed, so please take me to Disneyland."

Please send your entry to -- Please put "Disney With Los Angelista" and your full name in the subject line.

3) Semi-Final Round: I'll pick 7 semi-finalists and at 8:00 a.m. PST on Monday, October 19, 2009 I'll post each of their photos and entry essays here on Los Angelista. Los Angelista readers will get to vote for their favorite entry by leaving a comment on that entry. Anonymous commenters will not be counted in the vote tallies and only one vote per IP Address will be allowed. Voting will close on Friday, October 23, 2009 at 11:59 PST.

4) Final Round: The three entries with the most Los Angelista reader votes will then be shared with my two sons and THEY will pick the final winner!

5) The Winner: The winner will be announced on Monday, October 26, 2009 at 8:00 a.m. PST!

If you have any questions at all, please leave them in the comments on this post! Good luck to each of you. I can't wait to see what kind of entries you come up with!

Bummer, my family it a little to big for this trip. I would love a chance to meet you and your boys. We will have to plan something one of these month/years. :-)

Darn it! But for sure if you leave one of the kids at home they'll be scarred for life. Therapy forever because of it! ;)
