Win a family trip to NYC and help donate toys to charity this Christmas with the Disney Store. Dig out your favourite festive family photo and share it on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #DisneyStoreFamily. For every family photo shared, Disney will donate a soft toy to charity and you will be entered into the competition to win a family trip to NYC with a private shopping spree at the Times Square Disney Store.
Christmas is a time for giving and over the past 6 years, the Disney Store has donated over 125,000 to children’s charities through their Christmas campaign.
Star-Studded Launch at Disney Store Oxford Street
Bug and I attended the VIP launch of their 2015 campaign which was attended by the likes of Tamara and Petra Eccleston, Stacey Solomon and Lydia Bright. Bells were ringing, a choir was singing and Elsa and Anna stole the show. There was face painting, an opportunity to climb into Cinderella’s carriage and bubbly for the adults.
We managed to get photos with Olaf and both Anna and Elsa. Bug, who is a confident diva extraordinaire, was completely star-struck and would not talk to any of the characters. She could not actually believe she was meeting her favourite Frozen characters in the flesh, which made my heart melt a little as I realised how fabulously magical it is to be a 3-year-old meeting your fantasy friends.
Obviously I wangled a selfie with the Frozen girls which is a photo I will treasure for years to come. The selfie is the picture that I will enter into the #DisneyStoreFamily competition (fingers crossed). Disney Store generously gave us a voucher to spend in store, and Bug chose some wonderful Christmas tree ornaments for her and her little sister.
Share Your Festive Photo And Win
This year Disney Store is reaching out to families to share their favourite Christmas photo on social media and hashtag it with #DisneyStoreFamily. You could pop into to the Disney Store to take a festive photo (see ours with the Frozen characters) or you could upload one from the hundreds you have saved on your phone.
In doing so, Disney Store will donate a soft toy to their cause. The campaign supports both the Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital Charity and In Kind, and they will help Disney distribute up to 15,000 soft toys across UK, Ireland and France.
With the #DisneyStoreFamily photo submission you will also be entered into the giveaway to win a family trip to New York which includes a private shopping spree to the Disney Store in Times Square. I have been to this Disney Store and it is insane!
Fun and Free Activities This Christmas
There will also be loads of awesome events at local Disney Stores as part of the ‘From Our Family to Yours’ campaign this festive season. Write letters to Santa or make a frame for your family photos. Find out more about the campaign and free events at Disney Store Online.
Best of luck with your #DisneyStoreFamily photo!
