Win Your Way to Disney! Sweepstakes and Contests

LAST UPDATE: 1/27/23

On this page we list major Disney sweepstakes and contests that are either sponsored by Disney or offer substantial Disney prizes. We also list sweepstakes with prizes of a vacation to Central Florida or Southern California. We try to pick only the best Disney contests and vacation sweepstakes that are worth your time, so we are very picky about what we will list. The listings below are only short summaries of the prizes and rules; be sure to read the complete official rules for each contest before entering.

Avoiding Junk Mail

Sweepstakes entries are one of the primary ways companies build their email lists. If you don’t want to be bombarded with junk email, try to opt out (if possible) from any mailing list sign-ups they are offering along with the contest entry.

It’s also smart to create a “junk mail” address through a free Web-based email provider such as Gmail and use it for all sweepstakes sign-ups. However, be sure to check that mailbox at least every couple of days, since winners are frequently notified by email.

Know of a great Disney-related sweepstakes not listed here?

Send us an email with a link to the entry page.

We only list the following types of sweepstakes:

  • sponsored by Disney
  • major company/organization offering major Disney prizes
  • major company/organization offering trip to Central Florida (Orlando, Tampa, Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral)
  • major company/organization offering trip to Southern California (Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego)

We sometimes choose not to list specific sweepstakes for various reasons. Some of those reasons include:

  • no official rules
  • promotion seems misleading/questionable
  • sponsor is obscure or known/suspected to be problematic
  • primary prize is negligible, such as a low-value merchandise item, video or pair of tickets to a show
  • rules suggest major privacy issues (seems possible your data will be sold to a telemarketer or spammer)
  • Facebook sweepstakes that requires you to authorize an app (potential privacy issues)
