Well I'm glad I'm not the only one who got that FedEx prank. Geeze! I was so excited, I was at the post office this morning only for them to look at me like I was crazy.lol. I was trying to explain to them I might have won a disney vacation and they needed to look again. OOPPS!
Days are numbered keeping my fingers and toes and everything else crossed now!Good Luck
I wonder the process of selecting winners - is it automated? I like to think there is a method to the madness and was wondering if all the names go into one pool or if the package selection has any influence on being chosen on any given day. I have been changing up the package selection I enter with (and different times of day) thinking that will increase my odds but I know it won't ha ha.
Good luck everyone
Had my own 212 fake-out last week... Sitting at my son's Grade 5 concert, listening to the orchestra, when my cell vibrates. It's my work phone, so who would be calling me in the evening? Let's see - 212... 212?!?
Ahh, but it's 212-000-3459, not the Ventura exchange. Googled the number, and discovered it's a reported phone scammer, not a friendly Ventura rep delivering the Best News Ever(TM).
Oh well, maybe today...
So fun! Have a ball! Can't beat that for a first trip
I've been lurking the boards during this sweepstakes and finally decided to come out of the closet Just wondering, does Disney do anymore annual drawings/sweepstakes type things at any other time during the year to keep a look out for?
I understand this sweepstakes is something they've done in past January's. I just wonder if they do other Disney trip giveaways throughout the year
We went for the first time to WDW last March. We drove from Iowa! We took a detour to Panama City and camped at St. Andrews on our way there, and then camped at Fort Wilderness. It was such a wonderful, wonderful time. Can't wait to go back!
I have been wondering this same thing - how exactly are the winners picked (completely random, geographic, package chosen)? And, like you, I've been alternating the times I enter hoping that will give me a better chance, lol. Can't blame us for trying, right!?
Well I don't know about this contest, but in previous ones I have won or have read about it works like this, again YMMV.
Each entry is given a number in the order they enter. Then a number is randomly chosen (computer generated) and that is the winner.
That's kind of how I was thinking.
Anybody have any idea of how many people are entering each day? I can imagine it's a lot. Seems like the past few days I've run into more error messages regarding the site being busy than earlier in the contest.
I just got an invite to enter a local contest to go to wow to see Kelly rippa entered that too
Mary from mousesavers.com post sweepstakes that pertain to Disney. You can join her newsletter and she is usually the first to know anything plus she post on the DIS. I saw her answering a bunch of questions this past weekend. She has a website too and that is where I find a lot of Sweepstakes.
I thought for sure someone would have already posted this today, but since it is not here, I'm giving you the info.
Wheel of Fortune is giving away two Disney trips a day this week, one DL and one WDW. That's ten trips folks! You have to watch the show this week, get the phrase from the bonus round, then enter at the Wheel of Fortune website.
Winners won't be notified until mid February or later (rules say they are allowing two weeks to get hold of a potential winner before they move on to the next person).
Sweeps Advantage has a Disney category on their home page, btw.
ETA -- After a very bad experience with the people that run the Sweeps Advantage website, I can no longer recommend them. Please be very careful if you decide to use that website.
Yep. I've already got my DVR setup to record them each evening in case I'm not home. Oh, and my understanding is that it's not 1 WDW and 1 DL. The winners get to choose....
from the rules
What is the link for Mary's page and her sweepstakes updates? How to I sign up for her newsletters?
Okay. Went to wheels web site- what is a bonus puzzle solution? ( thx for posting this
I didnt know about the wheel if fortune one thanks for posting it i guess i spend too much time in school
pixie dust for us trying to figure it out!! After I started changing up the times I entered I thought... oh gee what if today is the day they pick someone who entered at the time I used to enter at
ONLY 3 MORE DAYS
Come on Disney Magic
maybe I need to change out what time I have been entering to increase my chances
As just said, time is running out. We need some magic, some dreams come true. All the luck we can get. Come on, lets get some more winners here!
There that should do it!!
