8. Winner Selection (Canadian mathematical skill-testing question): The odds of winning a Sweepstakes prize depend on the number of eligible entries received during each Entry Period. Administrator is an independent judging organization whose decisions regarding the administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of the potential winners are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Administrator will randomly select one (1) potential winner from among all eligible entries received for each Entry Period on or around each of the Random Drawing Dates set forth in the chart in Section 4.

Each potential winner will be notified by direct message from @DisneyDMR or @DisneyMovies, if entrant entered on Twitter/Instagram, with instructions on how to claim his/her prize. If entrant entered by visiting the Website he/she will be notified by e-mail. The potential winner must respond to the initial notification with the requested information within five (5) calendar days or the prize may, at the Sponsor’s sole discretion, be forfeited and awarded to an alternate winner.
If a potential winner cannot be contacted, fails to pass a skill test (Canadian residents only – see below for more details), is found to be ineligible or is non-compliant with the Official Rules for any reason, then the potential winner forfeits such prize and Administrator may select another potential prize winner, as time permits. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries for that Random Drawing. In such cases where a prize is not accepted or where a prize is forfeited, there may, as necessary and at Sponsor’s sole discretion, be 3 alternate drawings, after which the prize, if not accepted by an eligible winner, will not be awarded. For U.S. residents, prizes will be fulfilled approximately 8 to 10 weeks following winner verification. For Canadian residents, the prizes will be fulfilled the later of either approximately 2 to 3 weeks after the receipt of their timed mathematical skill test or approximately 8 to 10 weeks following winner verification.

All potential winners from Canada will be required to correctly answer a time-limited skill testing question without any assistance in order to be eligible to receive a prize or such prize will be forfeited.

If any prize notification or prize is returned as non-deliverable, such prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner may be selected as further described above. Noncompliance with any of the foregoing or any portion of these Official Rules may result in disqualification and awarding of the prize to an alternate winner. Federal, state, provincial, territorial, and local taxes and all other expenses not specified herein are winner's sole responsibility. Sponsor may assign all rights granted by entrants and winners hereunder to any party at Sponsor’s sole discretion.
