Really enjoying this sweepstakes so far! Even if I'm not lucky enough to win I can't wait to hear all of the winners stories!

That all depends on how many people enter. There is a definite winner each day. It is much better odds than powerball but still quite a long shot!

I have to think that it's slim to none and Slim just left town. That said, you have zero chance of winning if you don't enter. Good luck!

Do y'all think you could add a dining plan to the winning package at the cost of the just the dining plan?

I am having such fun just thinking about winning.

Me too. I'm now planning my whole DLR trip in my head.

I saw in the official rules answers to some questions posted here:

Administrator will conduct a Daily Drawing on or about three (3) business days after the applicable Day in order to select the potential winner of each Daily Sweepstakes........
On or about one (1) business day after each Daily Drawing, each potential winner will be notified via email or phone, as appropriate, to obtain a mailing address as well as any additional required information or responses. Once mailing addresses are available, each potential winner will be sent paperwork by overnight delivery service. At the sole discretion of the Sponsor, disqualification, forfeiture and the selection of an alternate winner may result from any of the following: [1] potential winnerís failure to respond to notification within two (2) business days after transmission; [2] the return of an email notification as undeliverable after three (3) attempts; [3] the return of any other notification as undeliverable: [4] potential winnerís failure to provide Administrator with satisfactory proof of age, identity and residency; [5] potential winnerís failure to provide Administrator with satisfactory proof that he/she is the authorized account holder of the Address associated with the winning Entry; [6] potential winnerís failure to provide required additional information upon Administratorís request; [7] potential winnerís failure to execute and return an Affidavit of Eligibility/Liability/Publicity Release within five (5) business days after its mailing


so it looks like the winners receive a call or email approximately 3-4 days after the entry day for which they won.

OMDD winners were told that they could not add dining packages to their trips because it was a promotional trip and not a paid trip. I would think that the same would be true with this new contest. Winner also can't upgrade rooms due to promotional and not paid.

Could you add on dining but pay for it yourself?

No. We were told that the dining package could not be added on even if we paid for it ourselves. The dining plan has to be linked to a paid room reservation and since the winners were not paying for the room, the dining plan could not be added. That's why we were given $1,000 gift cards- to cover our meals.

I can't remember...was the OMDD prize promoted to include a $500 gc, but you all ended up receiving $1500?

It was advertised as $1,000 gift card and choice of a few different things. One of the options was a $500 shopping spree at DTD but for those of us that chose that, it was just another $500 gift card. So when we checked in, we got one gift card for $1,000 and one gift card for $500.

Thanks! I remember there being a gc, just couldn't remember how much. $1500 is a sweet amount of spending money...
