Fun little driving game too! My score was rubbish - when I am at home I may try to better it but I only completed stage 1!

This game is a joke, 30 seconds to complete the first course??? I only managed to get 2 balloons then it ended.

I think my laptop is so slow which is why the time goes so fast, no free trip for me this year lol.

DH wrestled the laptop off me because he was so frustrated watching me being so pants at this! :lmao: I really couldn't do it!
And he fell just short of the end of level 2.
Must remind him about it...... :thumbsup2

I seem to have got the hang of it as I finished the first two stages first time - stage 3 took me a little while but I've finished that as well.

It's a fun little game :goodvibes

Hi All,

So, I'm no further forward with my 'problem' following the win on this competition. Basically I'm falling foul of the T+Cs. The T+Cs says that your party must include 2 under 12. My oldest is now 12.

Spoke to the 'helpline' yesterday (Tuesday) morning for their guideance, and chased again yesterday afternoon. They are waiting for guideance themselves from Ford. Seems (having seen another thread of winners over on the MSE boards) that numerous winners have called with similar issues.

Will probably call them again later this afternoon to see if there is an update. Don't really want to chase them, but as they would like confirmation ideally today, or at the latest on Friday by 12:00, I need to know what the situation is so that I can start making travel arrangements.

For reference the prize is different to last year where I think Ford provide LittleMermaid with a Car for the weekend. This year, it's 2 nights (max) at NBC, Party in WDS, 140 towards travel and €250 DLRP vouchers which can be spent on Shops or Resturants. You do however have to make your own arrangements to get to DLRP.

Anyhow, more as and when I can get an updated.

Thanks

Iain

Another DIS winner here !!:cheer2:
Really excited...especially as we are going to WDW in Florida a month later for Xmas!
Never been lucky enough to win anything like this before - anyone know what the party entails??
TIA:goodvibes

We won too :cheer2::cheer2::cheer2:

Small problem, have one child 7 and one 15. Have phoned today and they are still waiting on Ford for clarification as many winners have similar problems. Keeping everything crossed for a positive outcome

Last years party was in Discoveryland where the rides were open followed by fireworks so im assuming that if the party is in WDS this time that ToT, Crush, Cars and carpets etc will be open for the winners.

Hope you all have a great time, i did last year esp with the food/shop vouchers :lmao:

Iain Chapman

Congrats fellow winners!.

Bambi2009 - we have a similar issue. I last spoke to the Helpline people at around 4pm this afternoon. At that time they were still waiting on Ford.

Hope they come up with an answer soon. Need to get a move on with arranging flights etc if Ford agree.

Hi Iain, congrats to you too. The waiting is agonizing isn't it? I only opened my email today and found out I had won, I spoke to them about 4.30 and they said they would have to ring me back when they received clarification from Ford as many winners have got similar problems.

I am trying sooooo hard not to get excited just in case, but wouldn't it be wonderful!!!

Hello Again,

So, Ford have decided to amend the T+Cs of the competition. Bottom line is that I can now attend.

Friday, booked the flights and returned the necessary paperwork, so all systems are now go.

Thanks

We arrive on Friday 13th November, the Ford Party is on the Saturday night and then we leave late Sunday afternoon to travel back. I am so excited :yay:. We always go in August and I've always wanted to see Christmas but we can never afford two trips but now we can!! Our son's birthday is on the 17th so we are going to be celebrating early in the park, we've booked a birthday cake for him at Cafe Mickey on the Friday, he is going to be so chuffed.

I've never won anything in my life, what a brilliant first competition win :woohoo:

11-04-2009, 02:18 PM
250 I think each can bring 3 guests, so thats a maximum of 1000 by my reckoning.
My DD and DN are so excited about the party they wanna know evertything about it. I haven't got a clue apart from some of the rides are open in the Studios. Any info on previous partys would be fun to know:goodvibes

Basically the party was all the rides in Discovery land was open and then at 11 or i think midnight we had fireworks. We also had characters wondering around aswell, it was fab :)
