Hello Erin!
I have a quick question about the contest. On the website it mentions “Do upload photos daily” as one of the do’s, on the do’s & dont’s section. But on the Official Rules it states that we can only submit one picture per contest period. Could you please clarify this for me? I would hate to be disqualified. :( Thank you so much! I am ready for this contest! :)

Vanessa – You can enter daily, but you can only enter a photo one time. In other words, you cannot enter the same photo every day; each day must be a unique photo. Hope that helps!

This sounds like fun! Looking forward to participating.

I received two comments on my Instagram picture from the disneyland Instagram account that I was a potential winner. I was given a link to go to to verify my eligibility. Is this legit? The site that I went to verify my information didn’t have much information. I wasn’t sure if I needed to put something special in the details to confirm it was me. I’m so excited!

YAY I’m going to enter as many times as I can. :)

Where can the public see the weekly prize winner’s photos for the “Share What Makes You Happy contest”? Are they posted somewhere? I was looking forward to seeing them posted on the @Disneyland Instagram account or on this blog, but so far I’ve only noticed two weekly winner’s pics posted on Instagram. I hope we will get to see ALL of the finalist’s pictures at some point, thanks.
