Thanks, Disney, for the typing practice!
I keep the Thank You page loaded on my phone. Chrome is great about keeping multiple pages or tabs. Every morning I just go to that tab, hit BACK and then the Enter button.

Auto-fill is also a great tool for this.

In the rules it states winners are contacted within a day or 2.

No one is for sure when exactly the names are pulled. It says they're notified within a couple of days of winning, but they might pull 3 or 4 names at a time...I know that's how they did the contest last year, so it's really hard to know at this point. But basically winners are notified soon after the day they won for has occured.

Wow. Still no more Dis winners. I keep telling myself I will get a call on the 22nd since that is my birthday and my birthday will bring me good luck. Gotta have some kind of dream to hang on to. Plus the other day I found two coins in the parking lot. First a nickel and then a dime. Are those just as good as finding a penny? My luck usually stinks so I need all the help I can get.

For now I will just mozy along and hum.... "when you wish upon a star"

NOPE---it has to be a penny! Plus, you just won 15 cents, so you used up your luck...... sorry to tell you I will now be winning the trip

Oh please say it isn't so!! I went from no luck to a little luck of winning 15 cents?? And that eats up my luck?? Guess I will have to hide in your luggage then. Get a real big suitcase... I am not petite.

That's funny! 19 of the 60 OMDD winners formed a special friendship and we all talk daily! Even though we all live in different states, most of us have managed to actually meet. Since I live real close to WDW, I' m able to meet up with the winners who chose WDW when they take their trip.

That's pretty cool! How'd you all connect - was there some big event as part of the contest or just through social media networks like FB and Disboard type places?

We first connected through here on the boards, and then one of us started a Facebook group for the winners because the thread herewas getting so long. As we communicated about our trip planning through Facebook, we just really got to know each other and became friends. We helped each other out a lot through the planning and waiting process so when the trips came up, if anyone had a chance to meet, we did.

No answers to this so far...anybody know?
