So, let's do this...
1) the World or the Land?
2) Resort?
3) Package (romance, character, etc.)?
4) Dates of travel?

Wasn't it one of the Oprah gurus who said if you send your request up into the universe it will happen (or something like that)...I'm sending, I'm sending...

Nice day dream to get us through another LONG day of waiting...

Good luck everyone!

1- DL. We've been to the world several times, and though it's amazing..DH said he would never PAY to go to Cali. He is one of those who thinks CA is it's own world. Would love to go just once.
2-Grand Cali or Disneyland hotel
3-Happy happenings/character. DD would love that.
4-No idea. Never looked into weather patterns there or anything. I CANNOT stand extreme heat ( like WDW in summer) so preferably sometime just warm. Possibly while the Christmas decor is up.

There was a FedEx truck outside of my house today and I thought that I was going to die! He parked there and walked a few houses away to deliver something. man! I don't even know if that's one of the ways that they contact the winners this time, but still.

here are my choices though...
1. Disney World!
2. Grand Floridian or Yacht/Beach club
3. magical memories (is that what it's called?)
4. October 2013 or January 2014

I hven't read the whole thread but in a couple places i have read that there extra gift cards involved. Did any of last years winners exchange prizes for gift cards?

Me too! There were so many winners last year. I keep hoping this is my year but I would love to see others win if I don't. This is going to be a long month.

1. World

2. Poly or GF - I want poly and Dh wants GF
3. Probably characters for DD
4. I'd want to go in the summer where we could add extra days easily as I'm a teacher ... Although DD turns 3 in November so it would be more cost effective to wait until she isn't free anymore! Maybe early December? Jus can't decide!

I'll play.

1) the World or the Land? World
2) Resort? Contemporary
3) Package (romance, character, etc.)?I'd choose Amazing Fun, I think.
4) Dates of travel Right after Thanksgiving into early December? I'd definitely add on days.

No one has called.
TWICE Fed Ex showed up today.
Once was my spring wreaths I ordered from JoAnn Fabrics.
The second was an item I had to try as part of a survey I'm doing.

My biggest thing to figure out, if I ever win, is who the 4th person would be since my 23 year old has no interest at all in WDW.

The one winner that's come on this thread was notified by phone from a 212 area code. Last year, some were notified by e-mail and FedEx as well as by phone.

Just go 3 people and have more space in your room and more money/person on the gift card. Less to pay taxes on as well.

That's exactly what I would do. Why add a 4th? Save the money on the taxes, as you would save a lot.

Good luck vibes for more winners from DIS!!!!!!
