Anyone going to Disney on Leap Day for 24 hours?

Post by disneylizzy » Jan Wed 18, 2012 10:04 am

I've been entering for the One More Disney Day Sweepstakes every day. Just curious who else is entering each day too.

If you haven't heard about it, check it out: http://disney.go.com/memories/

UPDATING - Its kind of a similar topic, so I wanted to update this thread instead of starting a whole new one.

Is anybody planning on going to Disney on Leap Day? Like for the 24 hours?

We want to go but might just do the late night/early morning hours from 10:00 p.m. onward 'til 6:00 a.m.

Thanks for the reminder! I've entered a few times but I just can't seem to remember to enter daily :roll: I've even sent myself an email reminder and that didn't work :oops:

I put the link on my Favorites Bar visible always at the top of my browser (if you're using Internet Explorer) - it helps me remember to do it every day. I think they do the drawing every Wednesday, so keep your fingers crossed :)

Thanks for reminding me to enter today! :D
I've been entering most days, but there are days I forget.

My bff and I were discussing this but I doubt it since I will be in school by then. We'll see what happens!

I am definitely thinking about it just to say I did it, but it would require at least 2 days off from work... Hmmm...

This is positive peer pressure ~ Momma says it's O.K. ;)

I was thinking it would be awesome to get there at opening and stay the full 24 hours until closing, but that would definitely require taking a nap on the TTA or something!

Do you guys think that it would be possible to do every single attraction/ride in the park in one full day? I wonder how long it would take...if 24 hours would be enough.

Sounds like a great experiment!!! :D

BTW NaCler, nice new avatar! Is that one of your newest additions?

I'll probably be there at lunch, but I wouldn't make a special trip for it. I do wonder how packed it will be since it's the dead season and all.

I'm wondering about crowd levels too.

I think it would be cool to be there during more nighttime hours (something I don't usually do unless we stay overnight.) Maybe arrive after the last parade and just stay as long as we can. The parks are so magical at night & it would be pretty awesome to ride a bunch of rides at night when you usually only get 3-4 hours to do stuff in the dark.
