We had to report that on our 1040, but we did receive a check from Disney for $3000-something dollars to offset the taxes, and we were told in the letter than accompanied the "tax" check that it would NOT be reported as income to the IRS. Had our tax person check it all out, and it was legit. Don't know how that worked, but we ended up paying only about two hundred dollars out of pocket for our prize.

Wow! Lucky you. That's fantastic. I lost again to Hades, Scar, and Evil Queen, Terrible I lost all three.

Winning those gift cards led to some of the most hysterical parenting moments ever...Though initially son (12 at time) and daughter (15 at time) started calculating how many Mickey Premium bars they could buy with their $350, when they actually began using their gift cards to buy things and watching their balances drop, they got strangely frugal. The deal was we would take turns purchasing meals with them, and although there was no objection when it was mom or stepdad's turn to buy the meal, when it was their turn they balked.

Classic teen daughter moment...we were at Typhoon Lagoon and had ordered a pretty conservative lunch (because it was her turn to pay) sharing drinks, getting kids meals and such). The cashier tells her the price and DD gasps "thirty eight dollars!" She had no concept of what we spent on meals for the four of us until they were being deducted from her card.

They ended up rationing their spending after that, and although they bought themselves some nice things we probably wouldn't have bought otherwise,
they managed to conserve gift card balances on two more Disney trips before they finally zeroed out.

I know, it must be some quirky law in the UK. We have the same problem with the state of Nevada and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Neither of those places are eligible either. I know here in Texas we don't qualify for the Friends and Family bonus money you get when someone uses your name as a referral. It's because of a state law.

I'm sad to hear we'll only be able to play 10 times. I've been enjoying it.

Great story It is kinda scary how quickly those treats, snacks, "light lunches" can add up at WDW.

Awesome! I love the game and won 2-3 races. Maybe I can remember to play every day now.

You only lost once. Scar got me a couple of times, Hades, the Evil Queen, I think even the little flies around the zebra got me on the first board a few times.

Yep, and now I have my 500 and can't play anymore. I really thought it was fun. I will say that if you throw the dice in certain areas you get the same roll of the dice each time.

I was a bit confused on how to refer or share the game with others. I read through that section of the rules a couple of times, but never did find a place to add someone's email and name to refer them. I think I must be misunderstanding that part.
I sent my son a link from facebook so he could play, but don't know if he tried yet.
Just saw this post and thought I would try the game.... How fun, thanks!

Same here - wish I could play for fun! Got to 500 on my first roll this morning . I found the same thing with the dice throws.

I made it to 500 points yesterday. I'm not sure that I got to 10 entries. I wish there was a way to still play, even without accumulating points -- DS6 loved playing the game and rolling the dice.

At least I can still link to the game and listen to the cool music
