    The Disney Dreams Giveaway Offical Rules - The 15 months of 1.25 Million Dreams

    http://adestinations.disney.go.com/m...RLYOMDRulesEng

    They decided to do this from October 1st, 2006 thru December 31st, 2007, so they had to adjust the prizes (They did advertise 1 million in a year, so they had to increase the prizes).

    MouseSavers.com has prepared a list of prizes from the rules (which has more detail for each prize).

    http://www.mousesavers.com/yearofamilliondreams.html


    3 Memberships in the Disney Vacation Club (220 points at Saratoga Springs Resort, including annual dues)

    30 VIP Tours of Walt Disney's Main Street Apartment (winner and up to 5 guests)

    57,125 Epcot® DREAM FASTPASS Badges

    95,970 Disney-MGM Studios DREAM FASTPASS Badges

    95,970 Disney's Animal Kingdom® DREAM FASTPASS Badges

    418,789 Pin and Lanyard Sets

    250,000 Dream Mouse Ears

    50,000 Where Dreams Come True Photo Vouchers for one 5"x7" photo
    Some things that caught my eye.

    Disney is being nice with the big prizes, such as the trips, and will give the winner a set amount of cash that should cover most of the taxes ht need to be paid due to winning.

    With prizes in groups of 3, it looks like they want to give 1 away at DLR, and 2 at WDW, making sure that Disneyland visitors get a chance at the big prizes.

    The No Purchase Necessary option is a mail in Postcard (one per person per day), and prizes for in-park will be substituted for (the example they use, the Dream FASTPASS will be turned into the Pin and Lanyard, the Dream Mouse Ears or a merchandise gift basket).

    But at the odds at about 1 in 60 to win, you are looking at spending $14.40 (24 cent USPS standard Postcard) to win one prize, and the average prize value is $13.92 (the total value of all prizes is $17,412,477 and divide that by the 1,250,000 prizes), so it might be worth it to go with the mail-in entry.

    Re: The Disney Dreams Giveaway Offical Rules - The 15 months of 1.25 Million Dreams

    Another thing that caught my eye, the Dream FASTPASSes are only good for a single person, but it looks like they will hand them out in batches (for example, starting at 11:37 AM, the next 100 people boarding Splash Mountain will get the Dream FASTPASS, this will allow folks who are together a chance to use them as a group.

    Also, the prizes are to be given out between opening and 5 PM, so that only one shift of Dream Makers is needed.

    Also, you can win just by going to Downtown Disney

    Very impressive prizes!

    Are DLR visitors able to win WDW things? Ex: night in Cinderella castle, MK fastpass, etc.

    Based on the rules, no, it looks like there are some prizes that are location specific, such as the special hotel rooms, and it is for THAT night, the rules state they plan to hand out the Hotel prize early in the day to make sure they can find a winner that can use the prize (you have 2 hours to decide if you want your prize).

    No a Dream squad will find random people, either individuals, or in batches (as mentioned above) from park opening to 5 PM daily. You don't have to walk thru the gate, you can win just be being at Downtown Disney, or inside either park.

    And then there is the mail-in option, where they will have a random drawing daily, where they pick cards to match the same odds at the park for the same day.

    The prizes look great but I am really suprised they did not rely on resources in place and give out lots and lots of passes to return to any of the parks for a day. It seems like they could have given out tons of them to families entering the parks and its a win win for everyone, the family can come again for free, the parks already comp CMs and other affiliated employees anyway whats a couple more a day? and more money from the free visits will be made from food and souviner sales.

    A Dream FASTPASS is a lanyard with the date rewarded on it. Once you get your dream, you can use the FASTPASS line for the rest of the day just by showing your Lanyard. About 350 a day will be rewarded at the Disneyland Resort, and the lanyard is good at both parks.

    At WDW, the lanyards are only good for a specific park for the day, for example, A MK lanyard (about 210 a day) is only good at the MK, and not any other park.

    As for the internet, there is not an option.

    The Mail-in option starts Monday, I am planning to write detailed info on it this weekend.

    Disney is afraid of them ending on eBay, cutting back on ticket sells.

    Re: The Disney Dreams Giveaway Offical Rules - The 15 months of 1.25 Million Dreams

    Looking at the Disneyland prizes, over 99% of the prizes are these 4 times....

    37% - 156,300 Disneyland® Park and Disney's California Adventure® Park DREAM FASTPASS Badges ARV, $5

    33% - 140,000 Pin and Lanyard Sets ARV, $23

    19% - 80,000 Dream Mouse Ears ARV, $12

    12% - 50,000 Where Dreams Come True Photo Vouchers for one 5"x7" photo ARV, $12.95

    (Rounding makes the percentages off).

    Re: The Disney Dreams Giveaway Offical Rules - The 15 months of 1.25 Million Dreams

    Some of the more impressive prizes get me excited, but then I realize that the chances of winning a good prize aren't really worth the excitement.

    It'll be fun to get a Dream Fastpass, or Ears, but it really won't be anything to write home about.

    And some of the "better" prizes are pretty weak, too. Such as:
    8 ABC SuperSoap Weekend® Event prizes (winner and up to 3 guests get photos taken with celebrities)
    Whoop-de-freakin'-doo. Isn't the whole point of the ABC SuperSoap Weekend® to go to MGM Studios and be able to meet your favorite soap stars? Aren't you allowed to take photos with them anyways? Are they basically just going to give the 8 winners of this "dream" front-of-line passes to meet these "stars"? Maybe I'm all wrong about this, I've never been to this event... if I'm wrong, please correct me...

    But either way... Yawn.
