Just curious.
I don't know about the flights, but with regards to the pin code - I think you could use those discounts if you had one for the time the trip is scheduled. If that happens, just enter the code onto the Disney website and create a vacation package that matches what you would be winning (in terms of tickets/room), and print out a copy of the page that has the total.

Although I requested the Grand Floridian our Disney rep told me that there were no rooms available so we stayed at the Disneyland Hotel. It was amazing! We would never have had the opportunity to take such a great trip if it wasn't for winning this one.
We extended our stay by one night (thanks to Gay Days rate codes), but we used our park hoppers the first day, so by the last, we just went to Downtown Disney and tried to spend our gift cards. We still have $400 left, so darn it, I guess we need to go back!

Debby, you need to come to WDW in May when Brent, Francie, and I are there to spend it.

I know this may be a silly question but does anyone know if the giveaway packages include dining for each day? Gantu- you might be able to answer this question better, since you just got the paperwork.

What I saw in the rules was as below:
"All expenses not specifically mentioned herein are not included and are solely the winnerís responsibility, including but not limited to: round trip transportation between the winnerís residence and any airport of origin, alcoholic beverages, fax, food, gratuities."

I read that as no dining packages, except the ones that specifically say that there is a character meal or otherwise mentioned. That's my understanding.

You picked the romance package, right? So you get a signature dining meal for 4. Do you pick where or do they pick or will they just send you a gift card for that?

When I won OMDD, meals were not included but we got $1500 in gift cards and we used those for meals, shopping and incidentals. We charged everything to our room and then used our gift card to cover the charges when we checked out.

Don't freak too much. We had $1,500 in gift cards as part of the prize and I was able to schedule and price out all our meals, snacks, drinks, refillable mug costs and it fell under a $1,000, including tips on TS meals. That left the $500 for shopping! I was able to save and take extra money as backup. We only stayed the 4night/5day time frame. We had just been there the previous summer at the same time so that was a bit easier on the pocket as far as meals and shopping.
