Cogratulations to all of the winners! I just missed a call from 321-621-2545 from Florida but no message. Of course, my first thought was "I'm a winner" but they didn't leave a message so I'm pretty sure I'm not So excited for the rest of you!

This happened to me one day. After you click enter, minimize your screen and check to see if the screen you're looking for is "hidden" behind it. I have no idea why on that ONE day this happened. Hasn't happened since. Figured I'd pass it along to see if this might be the case for you, too. It drove me batty! Lol! :-)

Good luck!

Congrats to all the winners so far! Here's hoping we have some more!

I had a moment last night. After I'd been home a while, I went to change clothes and glanced at the answering machine, which was blinking with 1 new message. Okay, no one ever leaves messages anymore - they just call the cell phones if we don't answer at home. So I started to freak a little, thinking OMG, what if it's Disney calling!?!?!?!?!? Needless to say, it wasn't. It was TXU Electric calling to say we were getting rewards in the mail. Which wasn't enough to pay for a Disney vacation!

It was funny, though, as I thought about it afterwards...

We stumbled across this post while searching google and have been lurking for the past week, reading through all the pages (My gf will share this account). It's been amazing to read all the excitement and stories shared by past winners.

My family has never had the opportunity to go on a vacation, just too busy with day to day life, and honestly the thought has never really crossed my mind until fairly recently. We started to think about going to Disney World this summer and so while looking up information on possibilities, I happened to stumble onto the sweepstakes.

Considering that it's a sweepstakes for Disney, I mean comon, there has to be at-least 10 thousand or more people playing per day. Atleast one can always dream though!

Which is why I was really surprised when I was actually awoken by my girlfriend telling me that I had a call from you know who!

That was about a week ago, and since then, I've already signed and sent back the forms, and have been confirmed a winner!

We hope to go on our trip in July (kids summer) and will likely fly down, stay a few nights in a off location hotel for a few days so we can visit Universal studios, maybe a segway tour (always wanted to ride one) and a few other events before doing our stay at Disney (likely stay a extra night, I heard if we book with the planner that well get a great discount?).

We will be staying around on the forums, digging out all the info we can about Disney World. I can tell already that it's going to be a looong 5 months, but it's been a amazing experience so far!

So I guess that makes us number 5?

We wish everyone best of luck!
#5 Congrat's!!!!

I know were all excited to hear about what your planning!

And another Ohio winner!


Here's luck to everyone and dont forget the Wheel of Fortune contest started last night. I think they are giving away a few trips too!

Congrats!

Piece of advice, start planing now to get the most out of your trip. I have almost finished planing ours and we are not going until December. I am just waiting from the call from the Disney folks in a couple of weeks!
