Celebrate the Season of Giving with the Disney Ultimate Toy Drive

If there’s one thing I love about the holiday season, it’s gift giving. Wrapping paper, bows, and tinsel galore can make anyone’s day brighter. Today, I’m proud to announce that Disney is once again collaborating with the Marine Toys for Tots Program to help bring joy to children in need this holiday season through the Disney Ultimate Toy Drive. And this year, you can donate a toy both online through shopDisney.com or in person with a new, unwrapped toy at a designated drop-off location, a list of which can be found at Disney.com/toydrive.

For 75 years, Disney has supported Toys for Tots to help bring toys to children in need. In fact, our relationship dates to the program’s beginnings, when Walt Disney and his studio artists personally designed the original Toys for Tots train logo we still see and use today.

Walt Disney donating to Toys for Tots

The Disney Ultimate Toy Drive takes place from now through Dec. 24, 2022, and you can donate a toy to Toys for Tots at shopDisney.com. Or, if you’d prefer to gift in person, there are plenty of donation opportunities through Dec. 12, 2022. Bring a brand-new, unopened, unwrapped toy to the following destinations:

  • At Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort, collection bins will be located at the World of Disney store, Star Wars Trading Post, and Hotels of the Disneyland Resort.
    • Guests and cast members can also participate from Dec. 10, 2022, through Dec. 11, 2022, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. PST, when U.S. Marines will be on hand near the Downtown Disney LIVE! stage to accept donations.
  • At Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort, collection bins are located at the World of Disney store, Marketplace Co-Op, Star Wars Galactic Outpost, and the Disney Springs Welcome Center.
    • Walt Disney World Resort cast members will also be joining the fun, collecting toys in backstage locations across the resort all season long and participating in Disney VoluntEARS opportunities at local Toys for Tots warehouses for children and families in Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties.
  • At most Disney Outlet locations and Disney stores, including the Disney store in Times Square, New York, you can also donate new, unopened, and unwrapped toys!
    • On select Saturdays and Sundays from Nov. 5, 2022, through Dec. 11, 2022, Marine representatives will be making visits to help with the toy collection. Call your local Disney Outlet or store location for more details.

Throughout the holiday season, Disney will also support Toys for Tots in several ways, including by airing a public service announcement on our television networks and streaming platforms – such as ABC, Disney Channel, Disney Junior, Disney XD, Freeform, FX, Hulu, and National Geographic – to encourage viewers to participate in the Disney Ultimate Toy Drive. Content from across the company’s networks, including ESPN’s “GetUp!,” will feature Disney Ultimate Toy Drive integrations to highlight the season of giving and the importance of supporting communities in need. Disney Movie Club will also be joining in by donating over 2,000 toys to a local Toys for Tots chapter in Wisconsin. Additional activations will be announced throughout the campaign.

Now, to get you in the gift-giving spirit, let’s watch Disney’s animated global holiday short. Today, Disney launched the heartfelt, final installation of its trilogy series “From Our Family to Yours” – an animated short that celebrates the joy of giving, featuring a song sung by Jessica Darrow, also known as Luisa Madrigal in Disney’s “Encanto.” Get your tissues ready and hit play below:https://www.youtube.com/embed/uyVNMxH4fO8


Join us as we continue this tradition of delivering joy with the Disney Ultimate Toy Drive and give back this holiday season. You can learn more at Disney.com/toydrive.
