Good luck everyone!

Congratulations!!!! I'm late in my wishes because I've been sick and not gotten on the computer except to enter the contest each day. So happy for you, though! We went in December last year and in 2010 and loved both times...2010 the second week and 2012 the first week. You'll love the decorations and the atmosphere is just super charged! Take the time to do the Candlelight processional and hear all the story tellers in World Showcase tell about Christmas in their country. I'm getting excited for you!!!!

Good luck everyone...there is still hope!

You have been such a great sport, continuing to come on here and encourage the rest of us hopefuls! Thanks so much. I just noticed you're from Ohio, don't know why that slipped by me before. What part of Ohio, if you don't mind saying? I live near the Akron area.

Hey all!

We stumbled across this post while searching google and have been lurking for the past week, reading through all the pages (My gf will share this account). It's been amazing to read all the excitement and stories shared by past winners.

My family has never had the opportunity to go on a vacation, just too busy with day to day life, and honestly the thought has never really crossed my mind until fairly recently. We started to think about going to Disney World this summer and so while looking up information on possibilities, I happened to stumble onto the sweepstakes.

Considering that it's a sweepstakes for Disney, I mean comon, there has to be at-least 10 thousand or more people playing per day. Atleast one can always dream though!

Which is why I was really surprised when I was actually awoken by my girlfriend telling me that I had a call from you know who!

That was about a week ago, and since then, I've already signed and sent back the forms, and have been confirmed a winner!

We hope to go on our trip in July (kids summer) and will likely fly down, stay a few nights in a off location hotel for a few days so we can visit Universal studios, maybe a segway tour (always wanted to ride one) and a few other events before doing our stay at Disney (likely stay a extra night, I heard if we book with the planner that well get a great discount?).

We will be staying around on the forums, digging out all the info we can about Disney World. I can tell already that it's going to be a looong 5 months, but it's been a amazing experience so far!

So I guess that makes us number 5?

We wish everyone best of luck!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

You will SOOOO love your trip to Disney!! There's lot's of info on the Dis' so just 'jump on in', and everyone loves to help!

A couple of thoughts for you...

Did you know you can do a Segway tour in Epcot? GREAT, GREAT fun! And you can still stay at the resorts and still get to Universal (by way of a shuttle you can book). We stayed onsite last year and went to Universal 2 days. And, lol, NO, I'm not a Disney rep.
There's just lots of helps on here, so have a great time planning for your magical trip!

Still entering every day but kind of giving up hope since it is so close to the end. Like said, there is too many people entering so my chances is very slim. It was fun hoping and dreaming. To those who did win. Have fun!! Congrats!
