does anyone else feel like this is going to be a looooong month?
Yes!!!! I feel like it's already been the longest 9 nine days ever!

I really wish we'd here about more people winning. If I don't get a call it's at least fun to see other people enjoying good news and filling us in on all the fun details like Gantu has been so great to do!

I'm actually disappointed that no other winners have checked in. At least hearing from winners gives hope that we all have a chance. Meanwhile, not even a glimmer of a FedEx truck in the distance today. Maybe tomorrow.

That's odd that Ventura is asking for hotel and package choices. Ventura had nothing to do with that last year for OMDD; they were just responsible for picking the winner. We didn't have to pick hotel/package choices until Disney promotions got in touch with us.

I edited out the names and phone numbers, but this is a copy of our last email.

As for paper work, I got a ton of stuff.

I just opened your FedEx, and confirmed you as the 1/2/2013 winner.

Please note, Disney, will not receive any winner information from me, until the promotion is officially over and the last winner has been confirmed. You should not expect to hear from a Disney trip coordinator until early February. You can continue to email or call me with any questions you may have. Your next step is to choose your choice of resort and prize package, and let me know.



Thanks,

Yeah, perhaps after our trips Disney decided it was easier for Ventura to handle that? I don't know, but I remember there being some hassles with pickings things through Disney, so maybe this will help the process. I wonder if the same people at DL and DW are running things this time...I remember some of us bugged the poor guy so much, lol.

Congratulations on your win...you must be so excited. I love reading your updates and seeing how the process works. I hope I can someday share winners' info

My interest in the FedEx truck and phone has come back

Yes, the call will be from a 212 area code. DH and I both entered via text every day so they had to call to get his address. I had drilled into his head that if he got a call from a 212 number he needed to answer it. The morning they called he looked at the phone and said "212? Surely it isn't them!" But, thank goodness, it was!! It was a really great day!

That's the same lady that we worked with on the OMDD sweepstakes and she's great. I'd love her job. I wonder if you're making your choices with her instead of Disney (like we did) so that it gives them time to get started on your trip before the contest is over. That way when the contest is over maybe they'll give you your trip info right away. Do you know when you want to go yet?

Daily Entry Times

So forgive me if this question was already answered but does anyone know how the timing works for our daily entries? I got home late tonight and just entered at 11:50 CST so obviously it is past 12 AM EST. Does my entry count as today (1/9) or tomorrow (1/10)???
