Phooey. Sure hope I am able to select a value resort like I said before so we can keep the total value down for taxes purposes. My guess is I won't be able to since values fill up the quickest and they want to fill up the deluxe resorts. I'll have to see what I have to sell to help pay the taxes I guess. Sad. But at least I'll have some special quality time and great memories with my DDs and 2 grandbabies.

Doubtful. It's probably just the fact that a message board represents an incredibly small fraction of the people who enter.

Don't know, just wishing we had more information about the winners, and how they are selected.

I doubt they would ask that - winner excitement is free advertising for Disney. BTW - I would happily give them free advertising if they pick my name.....

I am so bummed right now. My oldest DD left my cell phone in a friends car on Saturday and I will not be able to get it until Wednesday night (as they live 45 min away). They do not have a cell charger for my phone so if they call today I would not make the 2 business day timeframe...that would make me soooo sad. Oh well Hakuna Matata I suppose....nothing I can do about it right now, but still

You can call and check your messages from a land line phone. Just dial your cell phone and press the # key when the automated message starts playing.

My little 9 year old has been sending me emails all weekend regarding me winning a trip to Disney World. She knows how much I am hopeful and check my emails daily. I think it is so sweet. Keeps the disney love alive!

Sorry you didn't win, but thanks for the laugh. I really needed it!

I must have received the same email because I had to take a double look!

I'm thinking there's a problem with the star I'm wishing on... Although on a happier note, DH told me last night that he's itching to get back to WDW and see the new fantasyland. We originally planned on going back Nov. 2014 due to home improvements we're working on but he said he believes we can get in a trip before then! So yes, I'm already pricing vacations and flights to see when I can convince him to go It would work out so much better if they would just call me to let me know I won ...
