How long did it take for a reply? I haven't heard anything and it's been nearly two months since I applied online.

Thanks.


Yes! We did last year and I applied this year. It seemed to take forever. I requested 3 months before our event and the certificate came 2 days before the event :) Be patient.

The Disney tickets are supposed to be used in a silent or live auction. They have a very long application to fill out, and they are very specific with how they want it used. If they find out you have broken the rules, they will not donate to you again in the future. We get them every year and they do very well at auction. There are lots of places that specify their donations are to be used in an auction only. I am a rule follower and also I figure if they are going to give me product for free, I can go along with their plan ;-)

I am from the Jersey shore equal distance from NYC and Philly. I was wondering who in this area has had luck and with what companies. Our fundraiser always seems to have the same donors.

This is the 2nd year we were approve for Disney Hopper passes (orlando). I applied early in the time-frame and heard back quickly that my submission was received and that I would hear back from them about the status. Within a week or 2 I heard back that we were approved. My event is late March so it will be awhile until we receive the pass/tickets. If I recall correctly, they mailed everything directly to the school and NOT my address. I made sure to let the school secretary know to be on the look-out. Their rules do say no raffles. HOWEVER, I believe that if you are having raffle baskets from various donors that people purchase tickets for whatever basket(s) they like, that is an "opportunity auction." You can call Disney and find out if you quality. That's what I did 2 summers ago and learned more about what an "opportunity auction" was (hope that I'm remembering that term correctly.)
