    Yes! Virginia told me when I received my call after that dumb thing I said and when we all grouped together she mentioned it. I can't believe I don't remember people's Disnames :crazy2:

    I still think that's strange. I was relieved to hear they were calling when the person here just won for this contest (hoping not email because of spam). But curious how they called her twice and left messages. Sounds like they are serious about three attempts to contact and then moving on to alternate picks. According to the rules, they are chosing 3 alternate winners each day. :scratchin

    This is a Canadian law that you have to answer a skill testing question if you win something. They're always simple math questions though. If a Canadian does with the contest then they won't have to pay taxes on it.

    I was the alternate Grand Prize Winner in the Disney Cars Lands sweepstake. The sweepstake ended 12/31/11 but I didn't know i won until April! I guess it can take some time.

    I think only two of us had annual passes but we have them for WDW and we both chose DL. For those of us who chose DL we were told that we couldn't add extra days or upgrade our tickets. For those that chose WDW they were able to upgrade their 5 day tickets to annual passes if they wanted. I don't know what your option would be if you already have passes but I'm sure you would be able to do something with them.

    You would be able to save your park hoppers that you would win and apply the value to the amount of your AP's when you renew. You are not able to give the tickets to someone else, as they are non transferable.

    you think they're just making 3 calls and then move on to the next person? Or they then would send out the Fed Ex?
    We need to hear from some more winners so we can see how they're doing it this time.
    We never answer our phones if it's a # we don't recognize.

    Who knows what the method is since it was so scattered last time on contacting winners. :confused3 Just keep an eye on email and answer phone calls from New York area code too!

    I was wondering the same thing about the calls. I'm a teacher and can't answer the phone while I'm teaching. If they leave a message are they giving you time to call back. It would seem like they would have to. I'm hoping that I win, but I have very bad luck.

    For the OMDD contest, I was sent a text because I was entering via text message. The text message said something like "please return the call to xxx-xxx-xxxx regarding your entry in the Disney sweepstakes." I knew right then that I had won but my husband refused to believe it!

    Ya, I know. It is crazy and it doesn't really make a whole lot of sense!

    Same with me. I would love to know why we weren't called or emailed. But I'm pretty sure I could have won America's Funniest Videos if there had been a camera in that envelope taping my reaction. I seriously thought I was being sued or something when I first saw that I was getting an official letter sent by FedEx!

    Perfect! Thank you so much for the information!

    Did any of the winners from last year need to send in pictures with your paperwork?

    Droped my paperwork off into the fedex box today. :thumbsup2

    I'm pretty sure were going to pick:
    GROWNUP FUN AND ROMANCE for Disney World

    We just went to Disneyland. It was fun and we had a good time, it just not the same as Disney World.

    I'd really love to stay at the Beach Club! I've read the Beach Club thread a million times! But we will be happy with whatever! I would just love to wake up and walk right into the International gateway!

    We've stayed at: CBR, AKL CL, WL, All Star Movies and Pop- We try and stay at a new Hotel every visit.

    I do think we are going to try and stay a few days more. Were any of the past winners able to just add days to your tickets? Or did you just buy new tickets?

    My phone call was fun. I thought she was calling to sell me DVC. We made all kinds of small talk. She's SUPER nice and funny! A few minutes in, she's like.. do you remember entering the contest? I was like yes... and then I really don't remember much.... I was trying to write it all down!

    I'm going to start planning... I LOVE the planning, almost more then the trip!

    Thanks again everyone and I hope we get some more winners here!

    Oh, I have one more question for last years winners.

    I know this may sound stupid.... what airline did you all fly on?

    For those that have won trips in the past...


    What happens if you have a family of 5? I'm assuming you could just pay the airfare and park ticket for your extra child, but what about the hotel room? The prize specifies a 4 occupancy room. How would they handle that I wonder?

    I only have 2 kids myself but my coworker is entering too and she has three kids, ages 11, 14 and 16 so they are all considered Disney adults as far as room ressies go.

    ...but if they aren't activated yet, why can't they be given to someone else? :confused3
