I grabbed it and yelled to my husband - I am going to get my call about the Disney vaction contest on Monday!!! The woman on the Disney boards who won a vacation also found a heads up penny at the store the day before she won!!!

Hubby just smiled and kept walking to the car!!! Is it bad that I wouldn't let my 3-year old have my lucky penny?!?!?! I'll hold onto it until I get my call!!!

I wish they'd post the winners names on the website like they did for the OMDD contest last year. That way we'd at least see they are drawing names as opposed to hoping that the lady is out with the flu and they haven't notified any winners since January 3rd and we may still have a chance of already being winners that just haven't been notified yet

I saw on Facebook that someone won on Jan 3. The poor woman got attacked by someone calling her a liar after she posted it. People are so funny! So that's 2 that we know of! Good luck

That happened with some of us who won OMDD last year. People here on the DIS boards told us there was no way that we had actually won since we weren't contacted by phone or e-mail first, only Fed Ex. I guess there's always haters.

This happened to me when I won OMDD last year. I was so excited after getting the call from Ventura and I posted on Facebook how incredibly lucky and happy I was. There were a few people that questioned it and said that the contest wasn't real; I iun-friended them and figured that if they couldn't be happy than they weren't a true friend anyway! No big loss here... I enjoyed my trip that they didn't believe was real.

And they lost you as a friend because of the contest and I gained you as one because of it!

Am I rembering correctly that someone actually wanted one of the winners to post their letter saying that they won to prove that they won? For some reason, that is sticking out in my mind...

I had some jerk questioning my win because FedEx just showed up at my door. I think he may have asked to see my letter.

I really want to hear of some more Dis winners! I had so much fun last year coming on here and hearing about other winners!

1.) Disneyland (Never been there!)
2.) Probably Grand Californian, but I've never really looked at the deluxe DL resorts.
3.) Romance package
4.) Depends on my school schedule, but I want to go while the Christmas decorations are up.

I'm up and at'em today too! Not listening to awesome disney music though, as I am at work.

I DID enter already today though too! If I win today cool, but really if I have a slow day at work, then today would be awesome

I am excited about this contest! I wish they posted the names online somewhere too.... I enjoyed checking that every day last time. I guess we just have to be more patient this time!
Good luck everyone

All I can say is I'm getting pretty good at entering my name, email, address, phone number and birth date.

Thanks, Disney, for the typing practice!
