It is random. A random time is selected (I can only tell you it is a random time somewhere between 10:45-11:15am), and a random check-in station number is selected. A CM appears behind you after you have checked in and announces that you are Family of the Day. Good luck!

all you need to do is have the entire family wear pink tie dye shirts

and

stand in the direct beam of the sun that shines in the terminal at 9:57

Is that the beam of sun that shines on the north or south side of the terminal?

You forgot to tell them about the special staff that you have to place in the secret hole with the glass facing so that it refracts the sunlight.
