Just wondering if anyone knows if the 77 “Back to Batuu” sweepstakes winners have been chosen/notified yet? I know the odds are extremely low of winning, but I’d like to stop checking my Twitter and insta DM’s - I’m stressing myself out! I believe the contest rules said winner would be notified on or around October 11. Thanks!

    Are you certain? I’ve not only checked endlessly as well, I see not ONE of those individuals have used any social media to post their winnings. Besides the entries, there’s not been a peep about this contest anywhere. I imagine all the winners have not been notified yet. @ElizFig can you share more of what you know, please?

    RIght, I figured Disney would make an announcement after all the winners had been notified - seems weird to not say anything...

    And not one winner has said a peep anywhere... We would see it because your account needs to remain public for another 3 weeks I think. I can already tell if we won, we’d be shouting it from the mountain tops lol. I’m still holding out hope!

    I won, I was contacted by Disney Instagram on October 16. We have to fill out a bunch of stuff to confirm eligibility. I just sent my paperwork in and it arrived today. Hopefully in the next couple days I will hear back to confirm. They likely don't want to announce anything until all the winners are verified.

    Thank you! It was my first time at Disney and I was shocked when I got the Instagram message. They said if people don't claim from the original 77 that they will send find other qualified winners. I honestly thought it wasn't real until they emailed me saying I needed to fill out paperwork and get it notarized!

    Do you know if they received your paperwork? Did you get any type of response that they received it?

    Did you mail or fax it? I faxed my papers in 4 days ago and haven’t heard any type of confirmation back yet. I’m glad I found someone else going through the same thing to ask. 😅

    We mailed ours. UPS almost lost our papers! It took about 24 hour after it arrived for them to confirm. I'm glad I found someone too! I've been looking everywhere and no one is taking about it! 😂
