No staying in a deluxe because some wouldn't be able to pay for an additional room.
I think all of the Deluxe resorts can accommodate 5 in a room. That will be our plan if we win. I have really spotty service at work and must have checked my phone 100 times today just in case!

I have been entering no problem from Canada... they want you to put a space in the Postal Code between the first 3 and last 3 number/letter combinations.

Droped my paperwork off into the fedex box today.

I'm pretty sure were going to pick:
GROWNUP FUN AND ROMANCE for Disney World

We just went to Disneyland. It was fun and we had a good time, it just not the same as Disney World.

I'd really love to stay at the Beach Club! I've read the Beach Club thread a million times! But we will be happy with whatever! I would just love to wake up and walk right into the International gateway!

We've stayed at: CBR, AKL CL, WL, All Star Movies and Pop- We try and stay at a new Hotel every visit.

I do think we are going to try and stay a few days more. Were any of the past winners able to just add days to your tickets? Or did you just buy new tickets?

My phone call was fun. I thought she was calling to sell me DVC. We made all kinds of small talk. She's SUPER nice and funny! A few minutes in, she's like.. do you remember entering the contest? I was like yes... and then I really don't remember much.... I was trying to write it all down!

I'm going to start planning... I LOVE the planning, almost more then the trip!

Thanks again everyone and I hope we get some more winners here!

I did send in photos. However, I believe it was optional & I still don't know why they asked for them?

I also was one who didn't get a phonecall.. Too bad, because everybodys calls sound fun/funny. Not sure why they didn't call, but I later found out they tried to email me but had my email mis-spelled. All I got was the fedex.

We added on two nights, but not adding on any park time. We decided to spend our two travel days with some shopping/swimming/out-of park dining etc.

Enjoy the planning -- that is DEFINITELY the best part!!

We didn't send in a picture. We got that affidavit out the same day it arrived, lol!

My DH is actually the one that won the trip. After he called and told me he had to call them back to make sure he had given them our correct address, lol!

We added one night at Pop Century to maximize our park days. We had them add it at the beginning of our trip so we would start at a value and end at the deluxe (we stayed at the Poly). It was a great trip and I'm sure yours will be too!

Congratulations on the win, and enjoy the planning!!

I really hope I win! I entered every day last year, and so far every day this year!
My family really needs a vacation together. I'm sure many others feel the same way.
I've been entering my younger sister, my mom and myself using separate emails.

I can't wait to hear from everyone who wins though!
Please post your detailed plans if you do!

drawings?

Congratulations to you on your win!

I slacked off last year on entering but have entered each day so far this time and have been entering my mom, dad and brother, too with their assurance that if they win they'll bring us (at least some of us, DH can stay behind and build me new kitchen cabinets!).

Anyhow, anyone know what the deal is with the drawings? Was yesterday the first one or have they been drawing one winner daily?

Fingers crossed that the next 27 winners will be Dis-ers! We've got 2 out of 4 so far, right?

Good luck all!

Google teaches you something new every day
Yup we don't pay tax on winnings but need to answer a math question.

It's not an if thing. We need to answer the question to win.... we answer correctly we get the prize untaxed.

Silly question I'm certain but do you need to get a cash room for an extended vacation when you win a price or could we, should we win, be able to extend our trip with a villa stay using our DVC points.

Additionally -- we can add extra days to our tickets, right and does anybody know if the tickets could be used toward getting an annual pass?

When I won a trip in 2011, I was able to add days to my tickets with no problem. I also rented DVC points to extend my trip so we were at the Poly for the Sweep portion of the trip and AKV for the rest. I simply gave Ventura the date we were leaving so they could book the flights.

Curious, if I use AutoFill on my phone to fill out the sweepstakes entry form, is that a problem? Should I, instead, retype my info each day that I enter?

Thanks for the info. I know absolutely nothing about the deluxe hotels. They are impossible for us to afford so I never researched them beyond just looking at the prices.

Do you just tell them you'd like to extend? You don't need to extend through them?

Last year, was anyone notified over the weekend? Or do they only notify during regular business hours?
