My Disney Savings: September Contest

#BudgetEars September contest for a $10 #DisneyGiftCard rules.

In September the contest will be simple. I recently went to Disney World with some family friends. My wife has an Origami Owl business and their national convention was in Orlando. Obviously we took this as another opportunity to bring our families to Disney World!

The trip was 4 days and we had a group of 4 adults and 5 children. I will be making a video and publishing it at the end of the month on my YouTube Channel  with the total savings from that trip.

The pinned tweet for the month of September will contain a link to this blog post. Respond to that tweet by 11:59 Central time on September 30th with your guess as to how much I have saved during that trip. The person who is the closest without going over will win a $10 Disney Gift Card. Ties will go to the person who guessed that amount first. If everyone happens to go over, the closest guess will win (ties still going to the person who guessed the amount first).

If I reach 1000 followers on Twitter and 500 subscribers on my YouTube channel I will increase the prize to a $50 gift card.

You may ask me questions on Twitter (or here) about that trip for more details on what we did.


Disney Dining Don’ts and the June/July Contest.

My last Disney Dining Plan Don’t video was over 4 years old. I figured it was time for an update. I am still working out some issues with video size with new software so please be patient on that.

I am also having a contest pertaining to this video. The currently pinned tweet on the the BudgetEars Twitter Account is one that links to that video. You can see it here:


I will select one random person who re-tweets that specific tweet by July 31st at 11:59 pm to get a $10 Disney Gift Card. However, if I get to 1000 twitter followers and 500 subscribers on YouTube I will raise it to a $50 Disney Gift Card. You must follow me on Twitter to win (so I can contact you). I plan on doing a minimum $10 gift card prize every month after this. So if you don’t win this month, keep following .
