    Something came in the mail.... [YOMD Mail-in Prizes]

    So I went to get todays mail and in it were two boxes from Disney waiting for me. I opened them up and in each was a set of the 2008 Dream Ears! So glad I won a pair of the 2007 Ears in the park a few months ago as the 07 one are much much nicer than the 08 ones. When put next to the 07 ones they look so cheap. I was amused cause while I followed Darkbeer's guide for the 07 mail-in entries I hadn't started doing it for the 08 entries yet. When I get back hom on sat I'll take a pic of the two side-by-side for you to judge.

    You'd think that since I won an 07 entry I would get the 07 ears... guess not.

    So just curious, what is the biggest prize anyone has heard of being won via the mail in entries?

    That's funny, we recieved three in the mail today. And yes I will agree the 08 ones look cheap compared to last years. Wife got one and both the kids, but I didn't rate. We too won one set of ears via mail last year and 4 from in the park. We also won about $500 in merchandise in a bigger package via mail. Here is a link to Darkbeer's thread where you can see the details.

    Oh, and the other thing that I found interesting was that the other times that we won via mail in, we had to go to the post office and sign for them. This time there were just left at the front door. I figured you had to sign for them so that Disney could prove that they had actually given them away.

    I received an ear hat today as well! Yahoo! I did not have to sign for anything either. I was surprised. I think I like last years clouds best. But, I was very excited to win. Congrats everyone!!! :-)

    I just scanned the new rules page, and it appears there is no restriction on size of postcard anymore. Hooray for not having to cut off that extra inch from the USPS postcards

    I want to win $500, I just started doing my postcards earlier this week. I hope that I win something because I have never won anything in the park.

    Another package arrived in the mail today! This time it was the pin and lanyard set. Wow, after having not winning a thing for almost 7 months, now I'm winning like gangbusters!

    Well, now I'm feeling left out! I send in my postcards each day and haven't won anything for at least 6 months. (Boy, does that sound WHINY!!!) The Boy Wonder and I each won DL lanyards and pins, but we wanted the 2007 ears to go with them.

    I guess we're out of luck now.
