As I wrote in this post a while back, many contests, sweepstakes and giveaways you see online, especially when they’re on Facebook and are said to be from huge companies like airlines and theme parks, are hoaxes. Of course, there are exceptions here and there. In fact, one happened just last week, when JetBlue used a Facebook event as its method for a sweepstakes. And now there are not one but TWO Disney contest that are definitely NOT a fake.
DISNEY CONTEST #1: FAMILY MEMORIES AT SEA
This new contest is just a few days old and will run in 3 phases through early November. The contest is currently being promoted on their official Disney Cruise Line Twitter feed:
The contest is also being promoted on the official Disney Cruise Line Facebook page (August 25, 12pm post) and on this page of their official Disneyparks blog. Both pages, as well as the Twitter post, provide links to www.disneycruisememoriesatsea.com:
