3. Character Cuddles
4. Early October (fall break)

Just finished washing dishes and I looked out my the window in my complex and saw a FedEx truck. I was anxiously awaiting the knock at the door, but just saw him drive away. Boo! I'm now FedEx truck stocking. Haha!

1) the World or the Land? Really don't know. I have a vacation booked for June at WDW that it would nice to let Disney pay for, but I don't know that we'll ever get the chance to go to Disneyland so that would be very tempting.

2) Resort? Grand Floridian or Contemporary (I think...) - Grand Californian if at Disneyland

3) Package (romance, character, etc.)? Thrills Beyond the Park

4) Dates of travel? Probably summer because I'm at teacher and probably the other times we would like to go would be blacked out. Although, if it wasn't blacked out, Thanksgiving week might be nice since we are usually out the entire week.

I'm a few days behind on the thread, but I just saw this and it made me laugh. On Tuesday I found a penny facing heads up too! I thought it had to be my day to win, but instead I just got off of jury duty for the next day. That's something right?

A little off subject

For those that enter sweepstakes daily, how long before you won your first sweepstakes? Have you ever won anything big? I've been very diligent in entering as many as I can & I'm just curious if it has paid off for anyone.

OMG last night I look at my husbands phone and he had missed calls from an 804 number he didn't know. No voice mail so I googled the number and it's a number from Ventura California. For a moment my heart stopped and then I remember you guys saying it would be a 212 number. "Sigh" oh well. . . . .
I've never won anything in my life but here's hoping for the 13th to be my lucky day because it's our family's lucky number.

We would choose:

1) The World (We have never been before because of the cost, so this would be great )
2) Not sure about the hotels...we've barely looked at Deluxe or Moderates. But probably Coronado Springs, Boardwalk or the Polynesian...Maybe Animal Kingdom Lodge?
3) Again, not really sure. While tours and recreational activities would be fun, this would be our one and only trip, and we probably wouldn't want to spend a lot of time outside the parks. We would probably do Romance, although Big Thrills and Amazing Fun might work for our family as well.

I am going to stay away from this thread, because I don't want to get our hopes up.


I do have one question. I heard they sometimes send emails to the winners that may go into your spam email. If you didn't respond to the email, would they contact you another way? Or you would you lose your prize?

The other night I went to the movies with my husband and I put my phone on vibrate. While at the movies, it started vibrating and I could only get my phone out far enough to see the first 2 number of the call received and it was 21...I nearly had a heart attack and close to running out of the theatre to answer then I saw saw the third number and it was a 3. So I am receiving a telemarketer call from 213 instead of 212.

I was heartbroken. Oh well.

I have been entering daily sweepstakes for about 10 months now. All I have won so far is a Robitussin golf umbrella (first prize was $100K, sigh) and a large jar of body scrub. But, because I won these two small items, I can't stop........I am fully hooked.
At least it's cheaper than actual gambling.

I have another question. When you guys enter do you check that you would like to receive emails and info from Disney etc., or leave that one unchecked?

...so only 1 winner from the Dis so far this year?

I'm guessing it's because this years entries aren't attached to the Disney website 'login' like last year?

Another thing I noticed is that after you enter it says, "Thank You...one entry per day per email address."

Makes me wonder if individuals are using multiple emails under one name?

DH and I check that box every time there is an option to do so. I don't know if it makes any difference, but we have gotten quite a few PIN codes over the years via email and snail mail.
