It’s time to put out another warning about pages on Facebook claiming to be different Disney accounts. They say they are giving away trips, but the purpose is just to get you to share their page.
The latest one I have seen circulating is for Disney Cruise Line, except it is not a Disney page. The reason I know is because there is a period at the end of the page title, so it reads “Disney Cruise Line.” instead of “Disney Cruise Line” which is the tell for this being a fake account.
Another way to tell that it is fake is that Disney will have you fill out an entry form with all your information in order for you to enter a contest. The fake accounts usually just require you to share the post or the page. Here is a screenshot of the fake Disney Cruise Line Facebook page, notice the period at the end of the title of the Page and there is no cover photo.
Now here is a screenshot of the real Disney Cruise Line Facebook page. Notice there is a verified check mark, no period, and there is a cover photo.
The verified check mark is the easiest way to see right away if it is a real account or if it is fake. The other way to tell is that the fake accounts really only talk about “giveaways” while the real account has information about the different ports of call, the different events that happen on the cruises, videos of the cruises, and more.
Don’t feel bad if you thought the fake account was real, that’s not why I’m writing this. A lot of people think it’s real, because who wouldn’t want to win a trip on a Disney cruise? The problem is the people who make these accounts prey on that. It’s so frustrating, because it’s giving people hope that they might win a trip and that’s not fair.
Here is a list of some real Disney Facebook pages:
- Walt Disney World
- Disney Cruise Line
- Adventures by Disney
- Disney Vacation Club
- Disney Store
There are more pages from Disney, but these are the ones that would most likely be faked by someone to try and do a fake giveaway. The best thing to do would be to like these pages. That way you will get updates from the real pages on your news feed.
If there’s ever any question about a page, just do a quick search for it on Facebook and you will see if it’s the real account or if it’s a fake account. Remember, Disney accounts are usually verified with a check mark (all the destination pages, like Disney World, are verified) and there will not be a period at the end or any extra letters. Plus, Disney has cover photos on their accounts; the fake ones don’t always have cover pictures.
Hope this info helps!
