Had a dream last night that we won and stayed at GF. Funny thing is that's not where I would stay! Lol I mean, I would take it of course but my night dreams seem to be different than my daydreams

Was reading the rules again. Says something about if you have a felony that they might disqualify you? ( I don't have one but curious). What if you do have one and have changed your life for the better- they can still take it away. Sounds like a bummer!

I think we'd pick GF because it's the only deluxe we haven't stayed at yet!! Good luck to all.....but mostly me!! 😉

This is what is stated in the official rules--
hotel accommodations (one standard room/quad occupancy, including room tax) for four (4) consecutive nights at a Walt Disney World® Resort hotel selected by Disney in its sole discretion

From what previous contest winners have said, choices will be offered, possibly based on availability for the time you select to travel.

When we won a trip they sent a questionnaire re: when you want to travel and it listed all the Deluxe resorts and asked you to mark your top 3 choices in order. Our 1st choice was Poly and that is what we got. They did put us in Theme Park View

You get a standard room, quad occupancy. If you want another room, it's totally at your expense. They will send you a questionnaire asking for your 3 hotel choices, but that's as far as your choices go.

I have not done one yet because it is so time consuming! I know that 1 or 2 of us have started one but I'm not sure that any of us have completed one.

There is one entitled "Pixie Dust Overload"......it is just a pre-trip report right now as they are going on their trip in the next two weeks, but it is interesting to read about the day she was informed on the win and the process to secure the prize.

I looked for that one and couldn't find it. Could you put a link here? Is it in the PTR or TR section? Thanks!
