Another ‘Year of a Million Dreams’ coming to Disney parks
Tuesday August 7, 2:10 pm ET

Walt Disney Parks and Resorts plans to extend its “Year of a Million Dreams” promotion through the end of 2008, according to information sent to annual passholders.


#2

aww, man! I was ready for something new. The Year of A Million Dreams was getting on my nerves (because my dreams have yet to come true).


#3

With the extension hopefully we will see more of the dream team in the parks.


#4

I saw the dream team walking around a lot… but not giving out dreams!!


#5

I SOOOOOO hope to meet the dream team in December.


#6

Here we were thinking, “It’ll be the end of YOAMD. Surely, they’ll be going out with a bang while we’re there…”


#7

Who know’s, they just may go out this year with one… And you just may be the recipient…:ohmy:


#8

:laugh: :laugh: :laugh: Unfortunately so true!


#9

We also saw the Dream Team all over the parks. I knew what they looked like so we were on the look out for them.


#10

Whoa snap! I gotta go again now! (Four days in seperate parks between two trips, and not a single dream.:crying: )


#11

I was really hoping YOMD would go away - I don’t think it has been done very well.
I was really hoping for something new!


#12

You think if we tail them or happen upon them increases your odds???:huh:


#13

The YOMD is continuing one more year!! I got my AP Mickey Monitor and this is what is says:

[I]"You’ll be happy to hear that there are a lot of new surprises in store as we continue The Year of a Million Dreams. As next year unfolds, we’ll immerse you in new parades and the exciting new attraction, Toy Story Mania!, where you’ll interact with characters from the Disney/Pixar “Toy Story” films in exciting 3d midway-style games. It’s a different experience every time!

But, like all beautiful dreams, The Year of a Million Dreams can’t last forever. Be sure that you’re a part of the excitement for one more year. In the meantime, have fun telling all your non-Passholder friends this news they probably haven’t heard yet!"[/I]

ALSO, I was talking to a CM about how they pick who wins, and she said . . . there is a lottery drawing each morning, and the dream team gets instructions like, “Award X prize to the 3rd person to come off the Winnie-the-Pooh ride at 2pm!” So it’s THAT random!!! (That is if what she told me is true??) :blink:


#14

Wouldn’t we all love to receive a dream :happy:

The family of someone I work with was picked to Marshal the parade at MK.

The only other one I personnally know of, a man beside me at the Flame Tree BBQ was a winner, big announcement over the PA, he won…

… a cupcake!

In both instances the recipients had no idea what the CM’s were talking about. I guess we all have to work on our confused face to win! :laugh:


#15

So, what does the Dream Team look like? I have at least one, hopefully two (and three would be greatly appreciated) trips coming up, next year. I’ve gotta find these guys! I’ll follow them around the park… hehehe.


#16

Same thing happened to me at MGM . . . they rang a bell, called out Here’s a Dream for you . . . and then gave me a FREE dessert!! It was FUN to win! :wub:


#17

Cool…maybe I can still win something:)


#18

i’m sorry but if what they intend on handing out is cupcakes, stickers, and things of the like… they shouldn’t have named it YOMD. frankly, if i can afford a trip to disney, i can afford a cupcake, a sticker, or a pin for a lanyard. these are not the makings of a dream. they should have named it year of a million surprises, more suitable.


#19

Agreed.

They’ve always handed out free stickers (on Main Street) and tattoos and such. Actually… I got some Little Mermaid tattoos on my last trip… was that supposed to be YOMD??? Because, you know, I’ve always dreamed of getting a free rub-on Sebastian tattoo… :laugh:


#20

you know, I would be happy with a pin, at least it would be something!

Of course the castle suite, a cruise, or even a fast pass for the day would be great too!
