    The latest Disney contest has 3 winners from the DIS!! Woooohooooo!!! Pretty fabulous :)

    The only thing better would be to see a Canadian DIS member win (if i could figure out how to do smilies on my Iphone I would put the pixie dust one here)

    Just curious if any Canadians have ever won?

    Keep entering guys!! I want to see an announcement from one of us :)

    Just discovered that the latest winner is a Canadian!!! Yay for us to have someone from Canada win one of those trips!

    In her post over on the theme park boards, she said that a few Canadians have won this month!!

    Since the contest ends today, I would imagine they will be publishing the list of winners in the next couple of days.

    Unfortunately, this looks like the only way to get a winner's list:

    From the Official Rules: "For the names of the winners (after February 15, 2013 and before April 30, 2013) and/or Rules (before January 31, 2013), send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to: Disney Time Sweepstakes, Winners/Rules, c/o Ventura Associates International LLC, Dept. VP, 60 East 42 Street, Suite 650, New York, NY 10165."

    that is awesome! Congrats to winning!

    How did it come? I am always courious, as these are so time sensitive, and we live out of the major center, so sometimes our stuff sits in Edmonton for a few days.

    How did you find out that you won? My daughter just got a phone call from a travel company saying that they need to talk to me about winning a Disney vacation and they have to verify my information. They wouldn't tell her what company they were from. It was a phone number with an area code of 289.

    Devkiki.......only 6 posts??? Are you SURE you are being truthful?? It would be wonderful I'd you are real, your story is true, and you share with us (i've been tricked so many times you really can't take anything on the Internet at face value anymore).

    I got a phone call from a representative from Ventura Associates who did the drawing on behalf of disney. She told me that my name had been drawn a few days before (on the 27th) and gave some instructions to prove my identity/address/contact information so they could confirm me as a winner and be able to contact. My sister got the call while I was at work and wrote the information down to call her back - I believe it was a 212 area code.

    Yup! Sure did win! Me and my sister entered everyday and just so happened to win on the 27th. We have followed the site quite often, but only browsed. We decided Joining would be good so we could ask questions, because once you do win you are constantly questioning it if its true. Not sure why anyone would lie about winning. But it's true Canadians do win, we are just now waiting to begin planning.
