    My Southern California Vacation would consist of just the hubby and myself. We didn’t really have a honeymoon, so I would use this as our 10 year anniversary trip! It would be AMAZING! We would stay at a hotel near Disneyland/California Adventure and would walk to both! We would spend the day riding rides, laughing, hanging out and remembering exactly what it was we fell in love with so many years ago(11 years together. 10 years married) we would go to the beach and walk hand in hand. Maybe even go visit my sister and meet my new niece for the first time! It would be INCREDIBLE!!! I would be sure to bring my kids home a souvenir. (Don’t worry, they’ve been before.

  83. Patricia Lee says

  85. says

    Disneyland/California Adventure! We thoroughly plan out each day and each meal. I would love to go to Sea World and San Diego Zoo. I haven’t taken my daughter since she was 4 months old.

  86. says

    My vacation would look like telling my boys we are going camping and leaving late at night so when they wake up, we are in Disneyland…they would DIE! It would be awesome! :-)

  87. Heather says

    I have never been to California and would absolutely love to travel there. I have family and friends in California and would love to see many of its beautiful cities! My southern California vacation would consist of lots of sightseeing, visiting theme parks, walking the beaches, shopping (of course!), and indulging in the California cuisine! Would be a great getaway if I say so myself 😉

  88. Becky says

    I’ve never been able to afford to take my two boys on a family vacation. I’d make their dreams come true and take them to Disneyland!

  89. says

  90. says

    Looks like some of the best memories together as a family before my kids grow up! We are foster parents and love the opp to have someone join our “awesome” family for a bit and hopefully go back to their family feeling awesome too! We’d love some fun, sun and a good times together!

  91. Lacy K says

    We’ve been toying with the idea of purchasing small items for a clue
    To a vacation sometime after Christmas. This would
    Certainly beat the below 0 temps we have on the way.

  92. says

    This sounds great. I’m from SoCal so I know all the fun spots to visit. And my grand kids are there so it will be terrific to bring them along with us.

  93. Laura says

    My vacations consist of local outings. The zoo, the aquarium, or if it’s a really special occasion, the Disney store. Seriously.

  94. Chery says

    This would be the ultimate Christmas present for our family since we have never been to California or many places out of the freezing cold mountains of West Virginia. ..<3 I can only dream of something so great & I would pack my bags in a minute:)))

  95. Aimee C says

    We have been wanting to take the kids to Disney but, surgeries and medical bills keep taking over for our youngest. So maybe in the next year we will finally be able to! Or if I win! :)

  96. says

    My dream vacation would be with 3 friends of mine who work as educators, nursing home volunteers, and military family supporters. We would go to the parks during the day, scrapbook our adventures in the afternoons, and then craft some more in the evenings. On the last day, my husband would miraculously return from training/deployment and we’d go home together.

  97. Stephanie Gossett says

    My girls would just never get over this. We would swim, sight see, and go to Disneyland….Of course! This is amazing. I couldn’t even imagine winning. Thank you so much for the chance!!!

  98. julie carlson says

    My vacation would be an amazing and relaxing time with my husband and three kids, seeing Mickey and all the other fun characters out there. It would be a magical moment for all of us, me seeing my kids so happy in such a magical place!
