Disney Celebrates Leap Day With 24 Hours of Fun, Vacation Giveaways

Amy Bertrand, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, January 4, 2012

For the first time in history, both Magic Kingdom Park in Florida and Disneyland Park in California will be open for 24 hours straight, to celebrate Leap Day.

Beginning at 6 a.m. on Feb. 29 you can enjoy select attractions and entertainment for 24 hours nonstop. I could only last about 13 hours when I took my kids a year ago, but if you've got older kids, this could be a blast.

And Disney also just announced they are giving a vacation away every day from now through Feb. 29. The package includes one 4-night/5-day Disney vacation for four, including airfare, accommodations, theme park tickets and more. To enter type the keyword "DISNEYDAY" as an SMS text message to the SMS shortcode "347639" ("DISNEY"). Message and data rates may apply. Limit one entry per day.
