What's YOUR Dream Vacation? KFC Bucket List Contest! (2 CONTESTS!)

Visiting Lightning McQueen & Tow Mater
at Walt Disney World (2012)!
If you could win a dream vacation to anywhere in the world, what destination would you choose--and who would you bring with you?  As the mom to 5 young kids, my dream destination would have to be family-friendly with lots to do and see with the kids.  Here's my "bucket list" of some places that I'd love to explore as a family!  Some of these places I've already visited before, and would love to see again! 

1.Walt Disney World, Disneyland or a Disney Cruise - My family had such a fantastic time in Walt Disney World when we visited in December 2012, that I would love to go soon!  Seeing my kids' favourite characters like Tow Mater, Mickey Mouse, and Pooh Bear was such a thrill!  To this day, my kids still talk about the rides, the shows, and our time in Orlando, Florida.

My family has never been to Disneyland, and it would be a dream to take the kids to Cars Land in California where they could walk through "Radiator Spring" (the imaginary town in the Disney Cars movies).  My 5-year old is the biggest cars and Tow Mater fan that ever lived.

We have also never been on a Disney Cruise--or any cruise for that matter--and don't think that we would ever forget it.  One day I know I'll take my family on such a magical cruise...
Loving Maui, Hawaii (2001)
2.Maui, Hawaii - Before having had children, my husband and I had visited Hawaii twice - and we fell in love with the island of Maui!  Maui is such a beautiful island surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, which is always directly in front of you or just over your shoulder.  Beaches are everywhere and there is such a relaxed feeling on the island.  I'd love to take my kids to visit Hawaii - and I know that they would also fall in love with it!

3.The Galapagos Islands - Many years ago my husband and I had a choice: to either visit The Galapagos Islands and deplete our savings, or plan a trip in the distant future.  We chose the latter and missed the opportunity to travel before having our family.  It would be a dream to visit The Galapagos and see 100-year old tortoises--and penguins and seals who have not yet learned to fear man.  One day.

4.Australia - My husband and I have never been to Australia before, but we both would love to visit!  The climate is spectacular, the local accent charming, beautiful beaches abound, and I'd love to snorkel the coral reefs with exotic and fantastic sealife.  And yes, I'd like to see kangaroos and koalas in their natural environment.  Unless good fortune smiles on me, a family vacation to the beautiful Australia will have to wait a while.
Enjoying One of Ontario's Many Lakes (2012)
5.Canada - Canada is my homeland, and yet I've not explored most of it.  I'd love to visit Vancouver's westcoast, or the eastern Maritimes (PEI, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick).  I'd also love to explore more of Ontario in the summer, and swim in a pristine northern lake with a soft, sandy bottom.  I'd love to go so far north in Ontario, that I'd hear the call of the loon and see the northern lights during the same stay.  Part of this dream will come true, as my family hopes to visit some Ontario lakes this summer!
