I think only two of us had annual passes but we have them for WDW and we both chose DL. For those of us who chose DL we were told that we couldn't add extra days or upgrade our tickets. For those that chose WDW they were able to upgrade their 5 day tickets to annual passes if they wanted. I don't know what your option would be if you already have passes but I'm sure you would be able to do something with them.

You would be able to save your park hoppers that you would win and apply the value to the amount of your AP's when you renew. You are not able to give the tickets to someone else, as they are non transferable.

According to the rules, they are chosing 3 alternate winners each day.
you think they're just making 3 calls and then move on to the next person? Or they then would send out the Fed Ex?
We need to hear from some more winners so we can see how they're doing it this time.
We never answer our phones if it's a # we don't recognize.

Who knows what the method is since it was so scattered last time on contacting winners. Just keep an eye on email and answer phone calls from New York area code too!

I was wondering the same thing about the calls. I'm a teacher and can't answer the phone while I'm teaching. If they leave a message are they giving you time to call back. It would seem like they would have to. I'm hoping that I win, but I have very bad luck.

For the OMDD contest, I was sent a text because I was entering via text message. The text message said something like "please return the call to xxx-xxx-xxxx regarding your entry in the Disney sweepstakes." I knew right then that I had won but my husband refused to believe it!

Francie, that's crazy! I entered ONLY through text too but they called me. Wonder why so many different methods?? But yet we all heard from the same person.

Ya, I know. It is crazy and it doesn't really make a whole lot of sense!

Same with me. I would love to know why we weren't called or emailed. But I'm pretty sure I could have won America's Funniest Videos if there had been a camera in that envelope taping my reaction. I seriously thought I was being sued or something when I first saw that I was getting an official letter sent by FedEx!

Once you return your affidavit you should get an e-mail from your contact at Ventura pretty quickly verifying you as a winner. If it's anything like the contest last year, we had to wait until the entire contest was over to hear anything from Disney. It was agonizing waiting to hear the details. There were blackout dates for our trips and we had to stay over a Saturday night. You should be able to choose from a deluxe resort and if you wanted to stay longer you should be able to do that, by paying out of pocket of course. They even offered us discounted room rates.

Have you decided which add on package you'll choose? Congratulations again!
Perfect! Thank you so much for the information!

Did any of the winners from last year need to send in pictures with your paperwork?

Droped my paperwork off into the fedex box today.

I'm pretty sure were going to pick:
GROWNUP FUN AND ROMANCE for Disney World

We just went to Disneyland. It was fun and we had a good time, it just not the same as Disney World.

I'd really love to stay at the Beach Club! I've read the Beach Club thread a million times! But we will be happy with whatever! I would just love to wake up and walk right into the International gateway!

We've stayed at: CBR, AKL CL, WL, All Star Movies and Pop- We try and stay at a new Hotel every visit.

I do think we are going to try and stay a few days more. Were any of the past winners able to just add days to your tickets? Or did you just buy new tickets?

My phone call was fun. I thought she was calling to sell me DVC. We made all kinds of small talk. She's SUPER nice and funny! A few minutes in, she's like.. do you remember entering the contest? I was like yes... and then I really don't remember much.... I was trying to write it all down!

I'm going to start planning... I LOVE the planning, almost more then the trip!

Thanks again everyone and I hope we get some more winners here!

For those that have won trips in the past...


What happens if you have a family of 5? I'm assuming you could just pay the airfare and park ticket for your extra child, but what about the hotel room? The prize specifies a 4 occupancy room. How would they handle that I wonder?

I only have 2 kids myself but my coworker is entering too and she has three kids, ages 11, 14 and 16 so they are all considered Disney adults as far as room ressies go.
