Congratulations! In response to an earlier report, I was a winner for the OMDD sweepstakes last year, and it was amazing! I stayed at the Grand Floridian though, as we could choose from the Deluxe resorts. Do you know what your choices are? Also, we had blackout dates for when we could and couldn't go, so I doubt the Star Wars Weekends is an available date. Basically any holiday or "popular" time were blacked out.

Thanks Monky,

Did you do a trip a report?

We just need to go when schools out, we've done SWW before.

I guess we just wait......

I did not do a trip report, but a few others from the contest were in the process of I believe. There were still a good deal of dates for when you could go, just the major ones weren't available. And as someone else said, we had to stay over on the weekend as part of it. Waiting is the hardest part, as you want to have everything figured out and set as soon as you can, lol.

Well, since we aren't going to get any further clarification from the OP (which is understandable), I'll just stick to entering once per day.

Any thoughts on which of the add-ons you'll do?

What the heck????????

Oh...whew! I was in the middle of surfing and the thread suddenly jumped from 5 pages to 16. Looks like the mods merged this and the thread Gantu started. I thought I was going crazy!

Congrats on your win! As a winner of the OMDD contest last year, I can offer this advice:

Be patient! After returning our questionnaires to Disney, it took them a while to finalize our trips and get back in touch with us to confirm our itineraries. They don't have a lot of people working in their promotions area so when they have something this big to work on, it takes time. Don't call them constantly asking for updates, etc. because that's taking time away from them being able to get confirmations done.

I did not do a trip report on here; the 19 OMDD winners that keep in touch just kind of shared our trips amongst us. I think the task of writing a trip report was just too daunting!

It was an amazing trip and we were even able to save some of the gift cards to use for a Disney World trip we took before my husband deployed last month.

Remember to check your junk mail folder every day because if they do e-mail you (which they did with some of the winners last year) it will probably go into there. For me, I didn't receive a call or e-mail first. Fed Ex just showed up at the door with a letter from Ventura Associates saying I had won. I didn't believe it was true until I found the winners thread on here.

Good luck everyone and keep an eye out for the Fed Ex truck!

We took our OMDD trip to DL as well since we live an hour from WDW and had never been to DL. We knew about the taxes when we won, and we planned for it. The taxes will be significantly less than what it would have cost us to pay for the entire trip on our own. We spent an extra week in California and that was only possible because Disney paid for our airfare from Florida!
