Welcome to all my loser friends...please feel free to use this thread to vent your frustration concerning the YOAMD mail in entries. Only w/tongue in cheek though: any other behavior will cause you to be ejected from the group -- which makes you a double loser!!! :rotfl:

Great...am I the only one that hasn't won? I feel so alone... :teeth:

Yesterday I asked my husband to get the mail and jokingly told him not to be surprised if I won something. He came back in the house carrying a box and said: "You did win something!". I was so excited...until I saw the outside of the box. It was a sparkling juice beverage that I had won a free sample of! This has turned into the biggest joke for my family. So, in that respect, I guess I am a winner as this is bringing great joy to those I love. :goodvibes

Not only haven't I won the mail in but I just got back from 7 days at WDW and I didn't win there either. A couple we arranged to meet there (old friends from our AF days) won fast passes TWICE. Only thing that keeps me going is there are 11 more months of mail in drawings and I still have a chance ;)

Oh, and while at Disney I talked with two CMs who said they spent time last week packing up those prizes to be mailed out. Appears they get the notice from the judging agency when the prizes for that period will be done from mail in entries and then they place the appropriate prizes in a warehouse. When the judging agency pulls the names they send the preprinted address labels to the warehouse at WDW where the Dream CMs are responsible for packing the prizes and shipping them out. One of the CMs asked my last name and then told me she didn't remember any prizes for that last name so...we'll see what the postman brings when he delivers my mail for the last 2 weeks ;)

You know, I'd be happy to help those hard-working CM's out! I'll just go right ahead and send them a sheet of my preprinted address labels. I'm going to mail them to this address:

Attn: Dream Squad Label Sticker-on-ers
Walt Disney World Prize Warehouse
Orlando, FL

STILL A BIG CAPITAL "'L" FOR ME. I have mailed about 120 cards since the contest started. A co-worker won, but not me. I will be at DW in April, however, and maybe that is where i will become one of the few, the proud, the winners of this contest.

The first drawing from postcards was supposed to be mid Nov (on or about 20 Nov) with the prizes being sent out approx 50 days after the drawing (9-10 January is right on Schedule). That means the second drawing took place in Mid Dec and the next group of prizes should arrive around 9 or 10 February. Since you've sent in lots of postcards there is still a chance you'll win before your Apr trip.

As a matter of fact your chances may improve if you continue sending postcards cause most people who already won will probably stop. I'm not stopping, I want the ears too but I think most will.

Didn't the first drawing take place on October 20th? according to the rules the promotion started Sept 18th.

On approximately the 20th day of each month during the Giveaway Period, and on or about January 20, 2008, Marketing Resources, Inc., an independent judging organization engaged by Creata, will conduct random drawings at Marketing Resources, Inc.'s offices in Elmhurst, Illinois to award the prize(s) for each of the days of the immediately preceding month for which mail-in entrants were to be awarded a prize(s). Each drawing will be from among all eligible mail-in entries received on or allocated to the day for which the drawing is taking place. Potential winners from the mail-in entry pool will be notified by mail or telephone (at Sponsor's sole discretion) within approximately fifty five (55) days after each monthly drawing.

Anyway still not a winner if there have been 3 months of drawings so far and I started sending them in on Sept 18th the first day too!!! UGH!!!

You could start sending postcards as of 18 Sep but they all went into the first day of the Sweeps' bundle - 1 Oct. Then postcards received from 2 Oct and onward were bundled on the date received.

They may have had a drawing on 20 Oct but I sincerely doubt it, too soon, still working on the bugs in the rules and everything else. The dates that folks received their prizes would indicate that the first time they pulled winners from the mail in entries was on or about 20 Nov (10 days Nov, 31 Dec and 9 Days January = 50 days).

So I'm sticking with my assessment that they have only had one or two drawings so far, Nov and Dec. The Dec drawing may have been delayed by the holidays. It's one of the key reasons Judging Agencies use words such as "approximately" or "on or about" it gives them "wiggle room." I'm guessing December winners will receive their prizes around the first or second week in Feb. We'll see if that happens ;)

Ya found one!!

Still racing to the mailbox twice a day - once to drop a postcard in, once to retrieve my prize. Which I haven't had an opportunity to do yet.

I'm assuming they haven't mastered the art of fitting my Grand Marshal Tour into the box yet, so I'm just trying to be patient until they do. popcorn::

And did I mention the wonderful thing that happened to me today? No? That's because nothing did!!! :mad:

(Well I did get the $0.44 cheese from Target using the coupon posted on the Budget Board, so I guess that will have to be my own personal "magic moment".) :cloud9:

I feel like a SUPER LOSER right now. Not only have i not won, but the girl at work has won 6 times. She won a laynard 2 weeks ago and yesterday was picking up 5 prizes at the post office!!!! We both send in cards daily - i even send in 2 cards some times (one with my name and one with my son's name). Where can i get a BIG "L" to put on my forehead!!!

01-20-2007, 08:35 AM
Ok, first of all, where do I send in to. I am such a loser, that I didn't know about this until today that you could send in.
I think that I win the biggest loser award. We were at WDW for Christmas and as we got off of Pirates, there was about 10 CM in light blue apparel waiting with one of them having a video camera in hand. I was so excited thinking it would be for me. I smiled as I walked by and they smiled back. So I kept walking and the boat behind us, as the first family got off, they stopped them. I asked one of the CM's what they won and she said "I can't tell you they might have won a trip to Costa Rica". Oh man, that was supposed to be mine!:guilty: pirate: Then the next day we let a family go in front of us on Expedition Everest because we all got there at the same time and THEY won something, don't know what since they were whisked away.
SO, like I said, I AM THE BIGGEST LOSER!
Please send me the address so that I can lose even more times. I will bring you luck, people around me always win instead of me.
I finally won, I'm the loser.

OKay, okay....*I* am officially no longer a loser! Well, in the contest in general anyway. In the mail in portion, yes, I am a STILL loser, though...

We got Dream Fast Passes on Saturday at MK! We went into Buzz Lightyear and there was a Dream Team guy passing them out as we got on the ride. What a GREAT surprise! :)

DD wore her ears that she won via mail...she is now convinced they are good luck ears and plans on wearing them for ALL subsequent trips!

Hi all - can I join ya? I've been sending in postcards since this thing began and so far nothing. Plus we (DH & I) went in December (12/12-20) and all we got was sick! :sad2: (Yeah we came home sick and were sick all through the holidays).

And when we were at WDW last month we were passed up by two CMs (not sure if they were part of the dream team or what, but once at MK while waiting for the parade to begin a couple of CMs came up to us and looked at us and then turned to the family next to us and gave them either ears or lanyards - I can't remember; and then another time while at MGM, again waiting for the parade, a couple of CMs came up to us and started chatting with us and then told us to have a "magical day" and turned to the next (older couple) and chatted with them and gave them something. DH & I were so bummed and started feeling really left out.)

We felt like if you didn't have a family/kids or you weren't an older (60+) couple there was no magic for you then. This hurt me especially because we had just made the decision not to pursue having children (after trying for 12 years, even with medical intervention) and not being able to be successful. :sad1: We thought taking a Disney trip would help cheer us up and it did, until being passed up for gifts and getting sick didn't help either.

Oh well, we're still planning a May trip and I'm planning a girls' only November trip. We still love WDW no matter what!!! :earsboy: :earsgirl: pixiedust:

I am a loser - I didn't even have to train to be one. It automatically was handed down to me from my wonderful mother. We never win anything. I should send in cards with my DS's name on it.

Actually, I'm the proud owner of TWO pin lanyards...I was at my best friend's house for dinner, and she was down in WDW a couple weeks ago as a Christmas gift from her inlaws. They were lucky enough to have a magical moment at ToT, and she gave me her pin lanyard. Now I get to share the magic too!

Todays selection would be "Brunette Belle"...unless it ends up Brunette Beast...(which has been known to happen:scared: )

I don't think it would be going out on a limb to say some of us "seasoned veteran" losers have sent in 10 times that amount with no love from Mickey.

I have not had a paid study for over a year....kept "not qualifying" for one reason or another...
C'mon Disney, my kids need a new pair of ears! Seriously, they do....DS has safety pins holding the ears to the hat part of his. He won't part with them.

well, down to about 12 cards left from my initial investment of $26 for 100 pre paid post cards....what to do, what to do.....maybe get one more batch...but I don't think I am going to invest more that $50 into this...

I've been trying to decide the same thing. Initially I had planned on sending one in everyday the promo was running (well, 6 days out of 7 anyway). I was really pumped up when people were posting about receiving 2-3-4 prizes in the mail on the same day. But with my current run of bad luck, my lack of enthusiasm seems to be dwindling about the same rate as my stack of postcards ready to be mailed. Can I replenished them both? I guess only time will tell!

Filling out my cards....so hard knowing the drawing isn't for another 8 days, then notification 2 months after that....who here is sending their cards in just around the drawing dates?

disneyfanfamily
02-12-2007, 09:44 AM
Haven't read all of the posts, but how do you know which days they are drawing on? I have just been sending cards out once or twice a week. I guess if it meant to be, it will be. But it would be nice to know when the big drawings are. Info please?

FINFAN
02-12-2007, 02:48 PM
On the "official rules" listing , it is stated that the drawings will be on the 20th of each month, and winners will be notified 55 days after that. It sure feels like a long time from now!
HTH!

There certainly has been a sharp decline in the number of people posting about being a mail-in winner. I'm thinking things should be starting up again pretty quick. As for me...well, I'm still a loser and pretty darn proud of it! :woohoo:

Well, DH is longer a loser -- he got ears yesterday.

How is it that *I* am doing all of the post cards, and DD and DH have both won and I have not, lol!

It's fun, though... It's become such a habit to mail the cards, I don't know what I will do when this over!

FINFAN

O.K. So the snow storm coverage has been all over the news...did it keep me from mailing our daily cards? NOPE! My back is killing me from shoveling, but I had to get to the Post Office! I owuld just put our cards in the mailbox for the mailman to pick up...but he is not trustworthy...no one gets the correct mail here, stuff missing ALL the time ( including our mtg 3 different times..thankfully that is on auto pay)the entire neighborhood hass complained about this guy :confused3 but I guess he still gets to keep his job no matter how lousy he is at it! I digress...
I sure wish the drawings were say....weekly instead of monthly, on that note, off to fill out my last few cards, I know I am gonna cave and buy another 50!

Just dropping in to say that DH & I are still losers here but we are still sending in post cards! And planning two trips to the World this year. :thumbsup2 Maybe that will up my odds at winning. :lmao: I highly doubt it since I never win anything I want (I always win stuff that is useless).

Wish I was home now painting :artist: instead of at work. Oh well, need to work to feed my Disney habit (and pay for postage so I can mail in more postcards).

Ok, I am still a loser for this but.......
I entered a contest for losers for the American Idol lottery tickets in Michigan and I got a letter yesterday saying that I've won!!! You had to send in 3 losing lottery tickets to the losers address in 1 envelope, I only sent in 1 envelope. Maybe that's my problem with the Disney stuff. :lmao:
I get to pick from 2 different packages:
Package A- Men's or Women's Lamb Driving Jacket with IPod Controller(iPod not included), American Idol watch, AI Baseball cap, AI messenger bag, AI hooded sweatshirt, AI long sleeve t-shirt and 2 tumbler mugs
Package B- Men's or Women's Leather Jacket, 2 tumble mugs, AI watch, AI baseball cap, AI short sleeve t-shirt, set of his and hers AI polo shirts.
I picked package A. :woohoo:
I hope this luck helps me with the this contest. :wizard: I want Disney stuff too. I know I'm a greedy bit_h but I can't help it. :rotfl:
Good luck everyone

02-27-2007, 07:13 PM
We've been to all the parks and DTD many, many times since the celebration started and not once have we been in the winning room/show/etc. Not eligble anyhow but geesh, I couldn't have worse luck...lol!

Have met and talked to many Dream Teamers though, wonderful, friendly people. I guess I'm a winner in that respect since we've had great conversations. So does that disqualify me from the "Loser's Check-in"? =o)

02-27-2007, 10:28 PM
Here, Here!!! I'm a loser! I haven't sent in any postcards but we were in the world for 12 days and didn't get any dreams (OK, not expected I never win anything). However, I didn't see the dreamteam, didn't see anybody win anything, didn't see any special YOMD ears except the new ones you could buy in the stores. I was really paying attention the first 3/4 of the trip but by the last 1/4 I forgot it was going on. I was really hoping to see someone get something good. (I really knew we wouldn't get anything....I have never won anything ever at all in my entire life so knew that wasn't going to change). I was just sort of hoping to see dreams being made for someone else that got real excited about it you know??? (Or even just a random somebody that looked realllllyyyyy happy about something & I could fantasize it was because they won something wonderful.);)

That's right -- we've got plenty of time! I just printed up a bunch of address labels and stuck them on my postcards as I got tired of handwriting everything. Several people have reported winning that used them, so hopefully mine won't be disqualified. It really sounds like there's not a whole lot of checking going on so I might even start sending more than one at a time. They've probably got thousands of entries showing up on any given day and don't have an efficient way of sorting through them. I'M GONNA WIN, DARN IT!!! :teeth:

Don't give up yet! I sent in 5 postcards for each of us (DH, DD, granddaughter and myself in January). Today when I get home from work my husband says that our granddaughter has something that I have to pick up for her at the postoffice. I look at the receipt and it's from....wait for it.....Walt Disney! She will be so excited when I bring it home in the morning! Heck, I'm excited to find out what she received! :laughing: Guess I'll be sending in some more since I know that it's actually can happen! :banana:

Well, today me and the kids were at MK and we kept coming up to where the Dream Team had been. Getting on the Barnstormer this morning, we saw a couple families coming off with brand new Dream Fastpasses, and then in line at Haunted Mansion, a whole bunch of people came out with the Dream Mickey Ears on. They must have given the ears to a whole stretching room. Then, walking down Main Street, I saw a Dream Team member chatting with someone sitting on the curb in front of the ice cream shop.

All day, I felt like the person who got to the surprise party after they yelled "SURPRISE"-and missed the whole thing.

So yes...I am a loser!

We didn't "win" anything. But, it was my sons first trip so that was like a year of a million dreams anyway!

Oh, and we got a free upgrade at our resort/hotel. That wasn't part of the YOMD but it was definitely NICE!!:thumbsup2

Add me to the loser list, saw 3 dream team members standing around chatting with a bulging bag as we got off Space Mountain today. I asked if we were too early and one said yes, I asked by how much and he said 'you are too early'. Stinkers...

I think they gave away some kind of fast passes and probably the lanyards I've been wanting most, anybody get something at SM on 3/23?

I keep telling myself: "Just hang in there -- the promotion has barely started", but it's been a bit discouraging lately as we've had hardly any posts from people winning compared to what it was a couple of months ago. It almost seems like they are doing the drawings quarterly instead of monthly (or maybe the fullfillment part isn't being done monthly?).

Here's to lots of new posts from the winning graduates of the Loser's Club! :thumbsup2

I WON THE LANYARD/PIN SET!!!

And I'm not kidding this time. :goodvibes

I was finishing up my taxes when someone knocked on the door...almost didn't answer it because I was really trying to concentrate on what I was doing. Anyway, it was the mailman. I knew immediately that I had won. Could tell by the small package that it was the lanyard (which is what I really wanted!). I still have quite a few postcards that are addressed and ready to go, so I'll keep entering until they are gone.

I am now proof that even a loser can be a winner eventually -- so hang in there everybody and keep trying! :wizard:

And if ANYTHING can cheer up doing taxes...winning a dream can!
Now, if all you winners would KINDLY refrain from sending in any more cards so those of us who are dreamless can have a chance, I'd GREATLY appreciate it!
seriously...YOU GO GIRL!!!!!!!!!

Well, we sent in a bunch of postcards starting maybe in late November, one every day. I had purchased 100 postcards and we have maybe 30 left. We slacked off around January sometime, but have now started sending them again. Would love the pin/lanyard set...but so far...nada! The kids had fun decorating the postcards in any event...keeps em excited for the trip.

I'm in the same boat. DW doesn't want to go to WDW this year. Didn't get the 40% code. No prize from post cards. I won't be an in park winner and my family can go during the slow times since the DDs are in year round school.

big loser here.

I did get a "sorry we missed U" from mailman on saturday (which irks me b/c I was home!) so I will go to post office Monday and keep my fingers crossed its another lanyard!

Please add me to the list of Losers in Loserville! Visited WDW in Feb. had a great time(as always), dressed alike in Mickey T-shirts, epitomy of a happy family Mom Dad boy girl and grandparents. Everywhere I looked, people were wearing dream pass lanyards, but us nothin..... Ok so last day we're at Epcot pin trading station CM comes over to kids asks if they are pin traders, well yeah just bought some. He invites them to a game of Pin contration. I thought to my self, maybe heres our dream right? Well game over, he thanks the kids for playing , asks their names and hands them this certificate in a really big plastic bag..... I think he read the disappointment on their faces (mine too) for he said , "maybe you don't know , but that certificate is from this years million dream celebration" DS and DD just politely thanked him and smiled and still continued to look in the oversized bag for a pin or something. That's our dream story, but considering we're diehards for Disney, we'll try to get lucky again soon!

OK, I can't really be a loser cause I won a dream fastpass at MGM in November, but I have to comment. We saw a family who had won ears, FP's in MK, FP's in AK, got to open Epcot, and AK! I just wanted to rub my self on them and see if the luck would rub off!!! And to top it off they were all thin, blond and beautiful. :goodvibes It would have been the most anoying thing in the world to meet them and hear about all their good fortune except they were the nicest people and so grateful and overwhelmed by their good fortune. I'll just keep on sending in my post cards and keep my fingers crossed! I just don't see how I've sent one in EVERY DAY and have not won and some people have won 4-5 times.:sad2:

Remember team - The Game Ain't Over!:cheer2: We still have plenty of time left on the clock.:hourglass We have sent over 100 postcards since late Feb. . We will be probably be sending at least 100 more before the whole shibang is over! DH and I have discuss this contest. He says it is simply the luck of the draw, I believe persistence will win out. While it has been said that it is better to be lucky than good, it has also been said that luck is the residue of hard work.
Keep on keepin' on and DON'T GIVE UP! I know this is called the "Losers' Thread", but it really should be called the "Players Who Haven't Won Yet" thread. To all those who have played and won ears and lanyards once, twice or several times I say "Congrats".:thumbsup2

I got the dreampasses and I got them from this lovely man (not a CM) I was walking into DMGM and he had won them and his family was leaving for the day(this was about 12:30). He came up to me and said are you a family of 4 (technically 5 but DH was at POR sicker then a dog). I said yes and he said you can have these. Were leaving the park now and won't be returning. He just gave them to us with only 1 tab removed.(still don't know what the 1 tab was but think it was TOT). I had already been sick 3 times that am, so we just walked into Little Mermaid thanks to this guy and his family. I unfortunately had to leave the park after that due to being so sick but my kids were so happy he gave them to us that they still have them in their rooms. So to this guy thanks again :banana: :banana: :banana:

Welcome back Lisa....start aiming that pixie dust power shooter my way A.S.A.P! Talk about nadda,nothin' zilch...don't remind me of the amount of dreams we HAVEN'T won! I am out of postcards and have not replenished them...I know when I'm beat. I had a cut off $$$ wise...when the cost of sending the cards started to get close to a night in a value...that would be it! So, what can I say? I tried...it didn't help to see on the news that Chicago is rated as the worst place for mail service..:rolleyes: I could've told them that!I'm going to start a thread to see if any DISers from the Chicago area has won thru the mail..I'm tellling you, having the PO box in Elmhurst...just a few miles from Chicago and me is not a good thing!

Pam -- I'm so sorry!!! You better sit on your hands so you don't click on the polls asking how many ears/lanyards have been won. Since you said you've reached your limit financially on sending the cards, I think you should stop for awhile but start back up again in a few months. That was a good comparison about the price of a night's stay. I feel that the people who have already won multiple times will stop sending once they use up the cards they had on hand. I mean really -- how many ears do you need to win? Plus no one has reported winning anything more valuable. I doubt very seriously they will be awarding any big prizes through the postcard entries, they're going to save those for the people actually visiting the parks and spending money there.

So good luck and lots of pixie dust for whatever you decide to do!!! :goodvibes

Darn -- no luck yet? There must be someone from Chicago that has won! I really wish we knew what process was used to select the winners. Do they actually have someone stick their hand in a big bag full of postcards each day, or do they just set aside the first ones that show up on a certain day. That later scenario would certainly explain why so many people have won several prizes at once. I think I'm going to start alternating and send several at once, and then some one at a time.

I went to the parks and was not a winner. I saw plenty of people with the hats and laynards and fast pass laynards.

I didn't get to see who won the castle stay. The parade was at noon and we were eating in the Crystal Palace. I heard the name of the family that opened the MK April 7, but I didn't see anyone. Plus Mickey did not come open the MK on April 7 with the train, is that usual?

Unfortunately I have the Loser gene in my family too. I spent a week at WDW and didn't win anything either. But there was a family from England that won the Cinderella Suite the day I was there. Oh well....

I wonder if they give preference to people who are from out of Florida.:confused: Next time I go I'm not saying I'm from Florida.:idea: I think they discriminate against us. :laughing:

We were eating at Mama Melrose and some random CM came up to our table (our table only, mind you) and I got so excited and then he asked where we're from and we said Miami and afterwards he just said to enjoy our meal. He didn't visit any tables before us and no tables after us. Very odd.

255 IS a lot...I stopped at around 150...just too depressing to keep sending, hoping, and then reading about all the multiple winners out there. So, at least now I can say I didn't win because I didn't enter enough.. tho you think 150 would maybe be a winner. I just had to quit investing good $$$ that could be going toward a future trip. I am actually somewhat relieved we are not visiting during YOAMD...takes away the question of "why not us?" Here's hoping one of your 255 gets picked soon.

Add me to the loser group. We just returned from a April trip. I hated the way YOAMD made me feel. I felt anxious and depressed--like I needed to be in line so that I didn't miss out on my "chance" to win. Towards the end of my trip my depression turned to bitterness when a lady on my bus who was wearing a dream fastpass was talking about how they not only won the fastpass, but her daughter won something too (I can't even remember what it was). :headache: Yuck, Yuck! YOAMD is like a vampire--it just sucked all the fun and whimsy out of my happy place!

disprincessatheart
05-01-2007, 06:56 PM
we just got back from a week at the world. I was really hoping for even a small dream, and I let my parents and other people who were going know all about YOAMD (they don't dis and knew nothing) and they all won and we didn't :(

My sister and her kids won 'family of the hour" on the dinosaur ride like dumbo in AK and got a certificate and were able to skip the line and ride a few times in a row. My mom and dad won instant fastpasses for Soarin - they walked up to the fp machines and before they put their tickets in the cm stopped them and walked them straight to the front of the line.
Both of those came from the regular cm's working the line.

My DF and I saw just one Dream team member the whole week. When we got in line for the snow white ride i spotted him waiting at the exit. THe line was very short (the only one that week) so when we got off I looked all over but he was gone. We went in the shop right there and looked around. As we were coming back out, we spotted him right back by the ride exit, and right as we walked up he stopped the family in front of us and asked the little girl to name her dream. I was excited for them, but so bummed that I missed it by that much!

We saw a couple of other people walking around with CM's like the ones in the pictures from some of the castle stay winners pictures, but I'm not sure if they won or not. THey were being escorted on and off the rides, so they must have won something big!

I have to say I was sort of disappointed, but the trip was great anyway.

Maybe we'll go back one more time before the YOAMD is over to try again!!

This is getting quite frustrating! I've won one lanyard (which was awesome) but I'm going to keep entering to try and win a second so each of my kids will have one. If and when that ever happens, I'll stop because I don't really want or need the ears and I don't think they will be giving away anything better through the mail-in promo. So hang in there everyone -- we still have eight months to enter!!!

Well..I'm sort of a loser..I've never gotten anything in the parks (but my DW and I did get a limo ride from the airport to the hotel)

but I'm no longer a loser. :cool1:

I sent 99 postacards in February and March. I had purchased 100 but I just couldn't send out that last one. Well on Tuesday I finally sent my 100th postcard and today we received 3 boxes in the mail; one for me and one for each of my sons.

We won YOMD Mickey Ears! Please don't give up hope. It could happen to you!

Last Tuesday I won a lanyard and was excited. Needed one more since I have twin DDs. That night, I was up till 5:30 due to bloating and a potential food allegergy.

Two days later, I got a larger second box and knew what it was. I didn't open it right away since I had stricken with more pain that morning. When the pain subsized, I opened the box and it was ears. Once I get to doctor, he thinks I might be my gall bladder. I was admitted that night and had gall bladder surgery 3 days later.

I'm afraid what will happen if I had won a bigger prize. :scared1: :scared1:

I finally feel good enough to recognize my good fortune in winning two prizes.

Hi Kari...welcome to loserville! However, anyone living in Fl who frequents as often as you is pretty lucky to me!
I have been here for a while, passed up by the mailman daily, sent in 150 cards so far, on a break now. I know, if you don't enter, you can't win..but no more $$$ that could be in the vacation fund is going to postcards. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!:rolleyes1

Thanks Pam. :) I know, my hubby says it's really wrong to complain when we are lucky enough to live so close to the parks and get to visit so often. I can't help it, I am pessimistic by nature and just feel like well jeez, as often as we go you'd think the dream team would find us eventually...lol. You're right though, in the grand scheme of things, I am quite fortunate. We've lived here in Florida since December 2004 and been passholders since December 2005 (a very generous Christmas gift from my mom that she was wonderful enough to do again this past Christmas to give us another Disney-filled year) and I love being able to go to "my happy place" as often as I can.

Still would be nice to win though. ;)

Nothing here yet...

I am trying to tak DBF into a trip to DL for my birthday next month. I have a trip planned for Christmas time with my mom but that's too long to wait! And we just went on March 31th, but it seems like such a long time ago. Hopefull I can talk him into it. It would be cool to win something in the park.

I'm a loser now. I went to WDW last weekend and got nothing. I kept telling myself the following things...

1. You don't need a lanyard and pins, you don't collect pins!
2. You don't need a dream fast pass, it is quite and are able to walk onto all the rides you want!
3. You don't need ears, they look silly anyhow.

This thought process worked quite well...for about ten seconds at a time that is! ;)

Ahhh...but the key here is that you were just at WDW. That makes you a winner in my book!!!

OT: I noticed you are from Gainesville. Just helped DS with a geneology project for school and we found out our great, great, great, great uncle (or something like that!) was the gentleman your city was named after. Plus I just read somewhere that Gainesville was rated one of the top places to live. So guess what -- that makes you a double winner (maybe even a triple winner but I don't want you to get too cocky about it. LOL)!!!

Guess that would include us too. We just got back last weekend after a 13 day vacation in WDW and did get a stinkin thing either. Yes we saw the dream makers and saw the winners, but nothing for us. We decided that we just don't meet the criteria of the perfect Disney family. This was not our first trip during this promotion either. I don't buy the "you're winners because you went to WDW". It gets a little old when you keep getting excluded because you are never in the right place at the right time.

If this is the year of a million dreams...then they must have given them all out!

Just got back yesterday...may 13th-19th...and I didn't see anyone win anything. I saw several people wearing dream fastpasses, but never witnessed them being given out.

I guess I'm a big ole L-O-S-E-R!!!

We're losers too. We were there 5/4 - 5/13 and didn't win anything. Did see lots of people wearing the fastpasses, but I guess we were never in the right place at the right time.

I am sorry to hear that none of you folks won anything, I have to say I have been telling my children not to even think about winning anything while we are there in September cause I won't be able to bare them being disappointed if they don't win anything.
I do know how you all must feel cause I know deep down I will be alittle said if we get nothing either.
As in life my thoughts are this, hope for the best and be prepared for the worst.
Good luck to you all on your next trip!:love:

MY DS FINALLY WON EARS!!!!!!!!!!!!FINALLY , FINALLY , FINALLY!
I had put winning out of my mind, forgot all about YOAMD, and then he wins! He was thrilled as he knew nothing about the mail in promo, so right now, he truly thinks it is magic at it's best! Thay are the Disneyland ears, but he loves them all the same. It is really nice as we can't afford a trip this year, the magic came to him!

Just returned from an 8 day vacation at WDW and did not win anything. Never saw any person from the dream team and only saw a few fastpasses. I was in the parks all day every day. Maybe I will win in the mail.

We just returned from 12 days and we spent part of every single day in one park or another and we didn't win anything either. I saw a few people with the fastpasses and a few with the lanyards. I saw members of the dream team around but most of the time they were just directing people or answering questions. The entire time we were there I only saw two groups with the mickey ears. I think the odds are pretty low that you'll get anything.

I've always wondered if there is a set amount of prizes given out that is the same each day...or if it's percentages based on attendance where more prizes would be given out on busier days.

We're going for twelve days in August and I'll be so disappointed if I don't see hide nor hair of the dream team!!!

Definately!! I was really surprised with the amount of time we spent in the parks that I saw so few Dream Team members, and believe me I was looking, LOL!!
