Congratulations!!!! I have not been cutting my postcards....hmmm....I wonder if I need to. Some posters have claimed that the post cards were sent back stating that they were not the correct size for mailing.

Anyway, congratulations!

I came here to see if there were any mail in winners yet because I'm now a mail in winner and couldn't wait to share my news! :cool1:

I had no clue what could be in the envelope that came todayy but was surprised to find out when I opened it that I won a lanyard with 2 commemorative pins on it.

I sent 20 cards (one each day) when the promo started until I ran out the beginning of November.

I did NOT cut the post office's postcards and sent them as is.

That is great. Congratulations.

I was planning to mail in, but being that I am blessed enough to go this year, I thought I would hope to get my magic then. Just going is magical enough. :goodvibes:

We went in October in the beginning of the promotion and won nothing and didn't even see any winners so this was extra exciting plus I forgot all about it!

The Castle Suite Stay is only for those who are in the park that day??:guilty:
Castle Suite stay will be awarded most days starting January 25, 2007. It will likely be awarded early in the day for a stay that night and is only available to eligible participants at the parks and Downtown Disney® area in Florida

DH and I were both mail-in winners! We're now the proud owners of a matching set of YOMD Mickey ears! (Blue hat with silver-colored ears.)

We both tried them on after he got home from work last night... DS-19 walked through the kitchen, shook his head, and said "That's just goofy!" :goofy: I said "No, it's Mickey!!" :mickeyjum

FYI, I'm using pre-stamped post cards from the post office. I mailed them as-is without trimming.

I was only able to get 3x5 cards blank index cards, is that ok?
Also, do you guys mail them in an envelope or just the card?...I know, dumb question, but I would hate to have my information land in the wrong place:laughing:

Yes. You can. I am semi-regularly dropping a postcard in the mail. Check out the official rules in section 2.b. Click here for official rules (http://adestinations.disney.go.com/media/disneyparks/en_US/html/yomdrules.html?CMP=OTC-VanURLYOMDRulesEng).

I'm using prestamped cards from the postoffice. They are 3.5x5 which fits with the rules. This is also the smallest size that the US Postal service will officially accept. Good luck.

I'm not aware of any e-mail address. You can mail in postcards by following the entry instructions in section 2.b of the YOMD rules. Click here (http://adestinations.disney.go.com/media/disneyparks/en_US/html/yomdrules.html?CMP=OTC-VanURLYOMDRulesEng).

I sent in about 50 postcards so far. Finally certified mail from Disney on Friday and it was for DH, a Lanyard and pins. We finally won something. Too bad it wasn't DVC or a cruise, maybe next time. BTW DH is not a huge Dsiney fan like the rest of us :rolleyes: figures it comes in his name, hehe.
