    No "Dreams" For Canadians....?

    This is from the Disney Parks website, under the criteria for winning one of the dreams:

    "For residents of Canada, a mathematical skill-testing question must be correctly answered to win any prize."

    What does this mean? Canadians, help me out!!!

    The rules in Canada require the "skill-tested" math question for prize claim. They are usually pretty easy. You can still win but may have to answer a question like this: (15+ 215) -(1204-89) =

    What? Americans should have mathematical skill-testing questions too! Otherwise why did I work so hard on math in school?

    ^ All it means is that Canadian law requires contests to have a "test of skill" to be legal.

    So most contests have a math question to meet legal requirements

    So you might have to answer something like...

    I think there should be a math test just to get in the park. Think how that would cut down the lines!

    This is hilarious!

    Solving a math problem on the spot is not my idea of a Disney-dream-come-true...

    Fortunately Walt didn't believe in elitism and educational bias. In fact, he was an educator himself, of a sort. Thanks to Walt I'm always able to properly spell "encyclopedia," every time.

    I am Canadian as well as American and I personally had no idea about this. Oh well. My main citizenship is American.

    Darkbeer is right. With anything that involves winning a prize, you must answer an easy skill testing question because it is considered "gambling" if there isn't one. Our gambling age is 19 and anyone under 19 must do it, as well as over. Even at McDonalds, if you scratch and win a prize, you have to answer a skill testing question. It doesn't have to be right, but you have to do it.

    What's the point if it doesn't have to be right???
