Amanda on January 18th, 2012 at 5:20 pm

Good Luck to Everyone!

Can’t wait to find out if I got my entry in on time…. :)

Kimberly on January 18th, 2012 at 5:37 pm

Are you taking entries all through tomorrow or just enough to get the amount of winners you need? Previous contests stopped entry when enough entries had been received.

7

Luke from CA on January 18th, 2012 at 5:46 pm

If we’re already annual passholders, can we give the tickets to somebody else and just go to the meet and greet ourselves? Or what happens if you’re already an AP?

Richard from CA on January 18th, 2012 at 5:52 pm

Still waiting on more winners?

Anukuare on January 18th, 2012 at 5:59 pm

Mirela on January 18th, 2012 at 6:20 pm

I just entered 20 minutes ago :( thought it was over tomorrow. Did I win? :( It says over Jan 19th??

14

Carolyn from CA on January 18th, 2012 at 6:27 pm

Thought the contest was over on January 19 from what the blog says “Please follow the instructions carefully and double-check your answers. Entries that do not follow all directions and do not provide correct answers will be disqualified. For official rules, please click here. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited by law. Ends January 19, 2012. Transportation/travel and other expenses not included in prize.” but they have already picked winners as of 3:27 pm PST on January 18th???

15

Carolyn from CA on January 18th, 2012 at 6:29 pm

Just saw the Official Rules “(3) whether Entries are among the first 50 valid Entries received (collectively, “Criteria”).” It really should say that in the large print and not the fine print

16

Kimberly on January 18th, 2012 at 6:32 pm

Will a list of winners be posted? So if the email doesn’t come through we still know we won and can contact you.

17

Matthew on January 18th, 2012 at 6:33 pm

3) whether Entries are among the first 50 valid Entries received. From the rules. I thought it was lotto style too. Anyone get an email yet?

18

Christina on January 18th, 2012 at 6:41 pm

When will the emails go out? Will a list of winners be posted? Thanks for having the awesome contest! *Crossing fingers*

Victor on January 18th, 2012 at 6:42 pm

I won!

20

Trisha on January 18th, 2012 at 6:49 pm

Darn. Don’t think I got it in on time!

21

Christine from CA on January 18th, 2012 at 6:55 pm

Yay for my sister! She just got a confirmation!

22

Kristina from CA on January 18th, 2012 at 6:57 pm

Anyone get an email yet??? Keep checking to see if I got my entry in as one of the first 50!!! Fingers crossed:) Will all the confirmation emails go out today? Have they already gone out?

23

Richard from CA on January 18th, 2012 at 6:59 pm

THANK YOU!!!!!!

24

Vanessa on January 18th, 2012 at 7:08 pm

man missed another contest! :(

25

Matthew on January 18th, 2012 at 7:19 pm

grrrr…wonder what the cutoff time was? I had high hopes because they announced the contest over so late.

26

Jay on January 18th, 2012 at 7:19 pm

Yes! Thank you! We can’t wait! :)

27

Bobby from CA on January 18th, 2012 at 7:29 pm

I won!!! Now just to verify, it said a pair of 2-day 1 park tickets. Does that mean we are getting 4 tickets total or just the 2?

28

Jessilyn on January 18th, 2012 at 7:31 pm

The rules stated that entry deadline is on 1/19 so how can winners already be picked? “2. ENTRY: This is a Contest intended for you as a contestant legally residing within U.S. Mail zip codes 90000-93599 (individually, “Invitee”) to enter during the period commencing at 2:00 P.M., January 18, and ending at 11:59:59 P.M., January 19, 2012 (“Entry Period”).”

29

Jamie on January 18th, 2012 at 7:43 pm

I got my email! :D Yay, thank you Disney Parks Blog!

Bobby — you win 2 individual tickets — each ticket lets a person go to one park per day, for two days. They don’t have to be two days in a row, they have to be used before some time in June, and it looks like we’re blocked out for Spring Break. Also, you get 4 people into California Adventure if you RSVP for that Jake pirate concert event on February 4th.

Last year I was able to pay about $20 extra per ticket to upgrade them to park hoppers, which is a nice perk.

Mirela on January 18th, 2012 at 7:46 pm

Did everyone get confirmation email??!

31

Mirela on January 18th, 2012 at 8:14 pm

Can the ones that got an email tell me what time they sent their winning email so I can see if I have a shot. I’m dying to go. :( thank u :)

32

Anukuare on January 18th, 2012 at 8:14 pm

Whaaat? It said she’s 7 feet tall on the blog, not 7.5! ;-;

33

Skip from FL on January 19th, 2012 at 12:24 am

When will the next W.D.W. Disney Parks Blog meet-up be?

34

Andrea from CA on January 19th, 2012 at 11:30 am

Oh I see the fine print now about the first 50 entries. Strange.

35

Kimberly on January 19th, 2012 at 12:25 pm

Any chance of getting a list of winners. What if winners e-mails don’t come through due to e-mail settings? Past events the winners have been posted and had an opportunity to e-mail you.

36

Stephen on January 19th, 2012 at 1:17 pm

So, will you be at the Meetup Erin?

37

chris from CA on January 19th, 2012 at 1:35 pm

can’t wait thanks again!

38

Danielle on January 19th, 2012 at 1:41 pm

Is there any way to see a list of winners…. Also is there any way to find out what time the last winning entry was submitted… Thanks

39

Amanda on January 19th, 2012 at 2:24 pm

I submitted at 2:08 and won, but my brother sent his in at 2:23 and he missed out. With the delay in email time, etc, I’d guess the contest lasted about 15-20 minutes max, which is typical of these contests with such a limited list of winners. Disney is very generous for constantly having contests on the blog!!

40

Sophia on January 19th, 2012 at 3:18 pm

Oh my gosh.. when are the emails being sent??

41

Jen on January 19th, 2012 at 4:42 pm

I read the Disney Parks Blog almost every day, but always seem to read about these contests too late. I wish you’d run them for a full 24 hours and then randomly pick the winners.

42

Gage on January 20th, 2012 at 8:29 am

(Jen) So do I! How do I always see contest after their over

43

Amanda on January 24th, 2012 at 11:43 am

they HAVE done contests where they randomly pick the winners. The problem is that you get people who waited 2 days to enter versus people who entered within 5-10 min of the contest. Some of us follow the blog very closely, and also follow Disney on Twitter. If you follow Disneyland on twitter, you can and should have messages they post sent to your phone. I get notified within seconds of a contest, and I’ve won many of these over the last 3 years because of it. I also get useful information about the parks that isn’t readily available anywhere else. Complaining about not winning a contest makes you sound greedy. Also, who’s to say your “random” selection will EVER include you as a winner? That’s the point of random, you don’t know if you will win. Those complaining about the “rules” should actually read the official rules. They always state how many actual prizes are being given out and based on that you can see how long you have to enter. I remember when they did the ElecTRONica Meetup, and included over 3000 people in it. There were NOT 3000 people at that meetup, and it’s a LOT of work for the staff to put together these meetups. People are notorious for not showing up when there are hundreds of available slots. The Special AP night just a few months ago? I went. There was nowhere near the 5000+Guests people in the park that registered. I’d much prefer the sample to be smaller, and get people that ACTUALLY want to win instead of people that sorta kinda maybe want to win.

44

Jay on February 6th, 2012 at 2:36 pm

Thanks again to the entire Disney crew. We had a great time, and the extra perks were tremendously appreciated!

45

Skip from FL on February 13th, 2012 at 9:43 pm

Incredible!

Skip from FL on February 15th, 2012 at 10:43 pm
