I have been laughing at the posts where people jump every time the phone rings thinking to myself "just stay calm people" ... until my phone just rang, my heart jumped, and I thought "I WON!!!" and then I check the caller ID and see it is only my brother calling. I have now officially been sucked into the frenzy

Long time lurcker joining in on the fun! My husband and and I were planning to take our kids (14,12,10,8) to disneyworld this year, but this would make it so much easier! Plus we have only taken them once and stayed off site. Good luck everyone!!

I am so happy to know I'm not the only one fantasizing my trip. I have no luck in contests and lotteries? But every time I think THIS could be my time.
Good Luck DISers, I hope we have lots of winners!

I wonder if they have notified winners since last week...maybe they'll do once a week or Tue/Thu maybe (wasn't Gantu notified on Thur?).

I have been entering DH and myself every day. I never win anything lol, but maybe that just means my time is due!

Big Thrills Beyond the Theme Parks is my choice, and we'd go for Disneyland. We go to Disney World for around 10 days every year, but we've never been to DL. Plus, 5 days and 4 nights at DW isn't enough time to be adding extra activities in addition to parks. However, 5 days and 4 nights at DL with the Lights Camera Magic tour sounds just about perfect to me! That's my reasoning, anyway.

* 9/2015 Fantasy & ??? * 12/2014 BWV * 9/2013 AKV & Dream & POR * 9/2012 BWV & AKV * 2/2011 CBR * 1/2010 Pop * 9/2009 AKV * 1/2009 BCV * 9/2008 POFQ * 12/2007 OKW * 1/2007 Pop * 10/2006 Pop & OKW * 1/2006 BWV & AKL * 9/2005 Pop * 6/2005 POR * 2/2005 WL * 2/2004 AKL * 2/1989 offsite * 6/1978 offsite *

My DH is not sharing in on the excitement of "what if" we won. I have made it very clear to him DAILY though that he MUST answer his phone even if he doesn't know the phone #.

I won on the second and was called on the third.

I did read in my paper work: On or about one (1) business day after each Dailey Drawing, each potential winner will be notified via email or phone, as appropiate (and so on)

Here's luck to everyone!
12/07 CBR ~ 10/08 AKL CL ~ 06/09 SWW Asmo ~

11/09 WL ~ 5/11 SSW POP ~ 8/12 Disneyland / DCA
5/31-6/9/13 AOA- YC - POR

Trip to come!!!! I really won a trip to Disney World!

Haven't participated a lot on this board but it is a lot of fun to read this thread each day. I followed along last year with the OMDD. I entered every day last year and am following suit this year. It was fun just to see other people win while dreaming of my own possible win. Good luck everyone!!!

Just a note that there are lots of Disney Sweeps all the time. I check this site each Friday when it is updated - http://www.mousesavers.com/disney-or...-and-contests/ and I take 10 minutes to enter anything I can each day!

The contest I won in 2011 was sponsored by Radio Delilah- I don't listen to her but knew about the sweep from this site!

This! I've explained "212" and "Ventura"...but all I get is this: He is going to feel so stupid if we WIN.
