A little while ago I was headed to town & I passed a fedex truck. I seriously thought about turning around to make sure he wasn't going to my house! This contest is turning me into a crazy person

Ok, adding my "jumped to the phone" moment of the day...

My cell rang (the number I provided with my entries) and I looked down and saw the first *2* in the area code...saw a second 2. Jumped and answered.
It was 202, not 212! LOL!!
Funny though, the voice on the phone sounded just like the automated tone as when you called WDW reservations!
The voice said "Congratulations!"
...it was a telemarketer. Take this survey, give all of your personal info...blah blah blah.
But it was an exciting 30 seconds!!

For OMDD the list only had Deluxes to choose from. I suppose if you really wanted to you could ask for a Value, but you would then have to do your own research on how much the value stay would cost for taxes, as Disney would just give you the quoted estimated prize value, and not adjust for your new hotel. And honestly, even considering taxes, you're getting a really good deal on the whole trip, so you might as well stay at a Deluxe since you'll never get a chance to again for as cheap as this is, lol.

Just wanted to everybody a quick heads up. While checking my email, I received an email from FedEx stating they were unable to deliver a parcel to my home. I found this odd since I am stuck at home due to shoulder surgery.

I googled "FedEx undeliverable email" and it is a scam.

Good luck to everybody!

Actually, the DL folks were not asked for their choice of resort; we were just given whatever was available for our travel dates.

I get those in my spam folder all the time. At least once a day. It's kind of annoying because I always think I have a package and then I'm like, wait I'm not opening this junk! Haha

When I saw a trip that would be around $6000 would be close to $1,800 in taxes I know I don't have that kind of money to pay the taxes. I mentioned that on another post way in the beginning. someone said I should be able to ask for a value resort. Now I am hearing I can't. I know my chances are slim of winning, but just in case.. I'd like to know that I can afford whatever I have to pay.

No.
For WDW, you can always choose a deluxe resort for the sweepstakes part of the stay and then if you stay extra days, you can move to a value resort for the extended days that you would be paying for. They would just adjust your flights for the extended days.

Oh I assumed the way you were talking you had. Why stress about it if it hasn't happened?
