Ran the CC5K and they had stopped giving out the medals - I was able get one from DCL later though.

And the lady who won the DCL triva gave us the DCL earbuds. We came in at a close second due to my DS12's obsession with DCL facts.

We played a lot of free games. We did a TON of trivia (sports related, music related, tv tunes, Disney) and a bunch of the family game show type activities.

Our best prize was when we won a bottle of champagne and a couple's day-pass for the Rainforest Room in Vista Spa from Match Your Mate. We shared the champagne bottle with our tablemates. The Spa pass prize was GENIUS, because we never miss paying for the Rainforest Room now.

I've also won:
  • Disney Water Bottle at Disney Trivia
  • A cute pin from Who Wants to be a Mouseketeer?
  • And it's always fun to receive free gifts for participating in DVC presentations and auctions...all free to attend.

Played almost all the bingo's, entered a little "golf" tournie, entered a draw at the jewelry place (guess the carat).

And boyfriend was talking to one of the stateroom hosts in the hall one day (not even ours!) and saying how we were so trying to win one of those tote bags at bingo.After chatting a bit he asked what room we were in. Later there was a knock at our cabin door and he had the tote for us with the DCL journal and keychain!! Soooo nice!! Disney magic for sure.

Some Mickey Ear Medallions from a Trivia game. (Me and my husband was the only ones to play.) We won a $300 Shipboard credit from a DVC presentation!

my kids always wanted to play games but somehow we were never picked on 2 cruises that we went so we never won anything. On the last cruise my daughter won a few Bingo games at the Edge club, so she got water bottle, sun glasses and earbuds (earbuds fell apart on the first time she used them).

On our first cruise, I won one of those Mickey-shaped "winner" medallions in the Monday Night Football contest. I think that's the only thing we won.

On our Magic cruise last March, DH & I played all of the trivia games, and won many times. We won 4 medals, 6 keychains, some golf balls and a sunglasses case, a DCL water bottle, and a DCL hat. We shared much of that "magic" with other DCL guests, as we play for fun, not the prizes. I was proud of my medal for the CC5K, and made sure to keep THAT one!
Our family also won "Family Fusion" on the Fantasy in June and got a cool DCL lucite trophy. Our kids were so thrilled that we won!
