Disneyland's "AP contest"
Are there any Annual Passholders out there who entered Disneyland's AP contest drawing for admission into DL on May 4th? I entered but don't know if I've won or where to go online to check the list of winners. Any help? Thanks.
I haven't seen a winner's list on the website yet. Not sure if there will even be a winner's list. Winners are to be notified on or around the 19th (today). So maybe we will know today and maybe we won't. Is that ambiguous enough for ya?
I'm waiting to hear a response, but in the rules, it says you have to "be in good standing as of February 28, 2005." But I didn't buy my pass until March 18!! I would be really upset if I was excluded because of this.
Plus, no one else I know signed up. My roommate did, but she's under eighteen, so it's not like it really matters there.
I am still waiting too! I hope I am one of the 2,500!
One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. "Oh, no," I said, "Disneyland burned down."
He cried and cried, but I think that deep down, he thought it was a pretty good joke.
I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.
Let's do some math here. There are only 2500 AP holders getting to go. There are over 600,000 AP holders. Even counting on the fact that not all of them registered for the contest, the odds of being a winner are still pretty low. Now we have to hope that one of the winners is also registered to chat on Micechat and logs in to check the boards. As there are less than 2000 registered Mice Chatters... well you get the idea. We may just not know anyone who won. I hope I am proved wrong and all of us are winners with an email coming any moment.
Finally someone posted about this! I thought about it, but was too afraid that I would post and get so many replies saying, "Yeah, I already got my emial saying I won." That of course would mean that I didn't, depressing me seriously to no end. I have everything crossed that I could possibly cross. It's so sad, but I got my boyfriends permission to check his email too because he's entered the contest.
The King is back and he's ready to kick some tail. Do not mess with a mouse in black.
I think it would have been neat if they sent us a golden invitation in the mail instead. Emails are so unmagical.
Oh, you'll get a package alright. I don't know if they're using FedEx or UPS, but the packages were assembled at the GCH. So don't worry, you'll get physical and eletronic confirmation! What I think is a great touch is a replica of the original invitation sent out to folks to attend the opening of Disneyland.
Edited to add: the bit about the invitation is what I've heard but not 100% confirmed as seen (I can't remember if I was told the person saw them); but for sure the person saw the assemblage of packages.
