There are 5 of us in my family, and the trip is for 4. Is there a way we could add an extra child to our trip and pay oop for that child. Even if I won, I couldn't go if it meant leaving someone behind.
I read the rules, but didn't see anything about this particular problem. I know there are several past winners on the DIS and was just wondering if anyone else has found themselves in this boat, and if so what did you do.
If we couldn't add someone, I'm not going to waste my time entering anymore, and potentially knocking someone else out of winning that only has 4 people.
Thanks for any info...
I believe that some of the omdd winners had more than 4 and were able to add oop for one of their children, no problem

I'm starting to get sad.... 22 days into the contest and no phone call. Alas I fear my dreams are to be squashed -- but the Magic 8-Ball said I'd "absolutely!" win.... I think it was just toying with my emotions.

Wow!! Thank you so much!! With all this Pixie dust being sprinkled on me I just have to win!

Or maybe someone else if the dust lands on them. It is fun hoping.

Here's my freak out of the day. I decided to take a nap while the kiddos were asleep. At about 1:40 my phone rings, I'm half asleep and only register one number on the screen which is 2 and my phone resets. I sit up and patiently wait for the phone to power back up. I check my call list and its empty I didn't even register the number. I log onto to Verizon to see if its there yet no such luck and I called them and try said it won't show up that quickly. I no doubt sounded like a crazy person freaking out over the slight possibility of getting a free Disney vacation. But hopefully Ventura would have left a voicemail or send me an email! Til then I'm crossing my finger hoping for some magic.

Keeping my fingers and toes crossed

I've been entering daily (maybe missed a couple in between). We would really love a trip (who wouldn't ) to Disney. We're getting ready to go to a new post soon, so we're hoping we can squeeze a great Disney adventure in there along the way !

Good Luck Everyone

Thank you for the birthday wish. I love the name Shelby also. I got to pick out my grand daughter's name. Truth be told I chose it due to my favorite movie. Steel Magnolias. I also got to pick out my grandson's name also since DD is so indecisive. Just like the name Liam. No special reason.

It is nearly 4. No phone call and no Fed Ex. Doesn't look promising. Anyone else???

For those of us who won OMDD, there was no problem adding extra family members. You just pay out of pocket. The only thing that might be problematic is that the rooms will only hold so many people so that might limit where you can stay, but you can worry about that when you win.

Maybe the person at Ventura took off an extra few days for the Holiday, heck maybe they went to the inauguration :-)

So maybe she was off Friday and Monday and tomorrow we will hear for winners picked Thursday-Tuesday. Come on a girl can dream!

I love reading all the "heart beating fast" stories... I haven't had any of those moments yet, but I know I will be flipping out if a number I don't know calls me. I'm just hoping if they call my husband he'll pick up.
