To celebrate Disney’s 100th anniversary, Disney Parks & Resorts is launching a special competition to crown the UK’s Biggest Disney Fan. From fans of Disney Parks, to Disney films or famous characters – Disney wants to hear your story and why you want to compete for the coveted title, the UK’s Biggest Disney Fan.
10 Disney Fans will be given 10 challenges over 2 weeks starting in Disneyland Paris then moving to Walt Disney World in Florida and finally a Disney cruise around the Bahamas on the Disney Wish.
A Disney Ultimate experience includes a night stay inside Cinderella’s Castle.
Hosted by Strictly Come Dancing star and Disney super-fan Janette Manrara, the competition is open for two weeks until 13th February 2023, at which time the entrants will be whittled down to a shortlist of 10 Disney fans and their families, by a special Disney committee. Once selected these 10 fans and their families will take part in the ultimate Disney holiday over the Easter break.
The holiday-of-a-lifetime includes special visits to Disneyland Paris, Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and a sailing aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship. Over 10 magical days, the 10 fans and their families will compete in 10 challenges throughout the Disney theme parks and on-board the Disney Wish, all for the chance of winning the coveted title of UK’s Biggest Disney Fan.
Disney Cruise Line will take fun in the sun to the next level on the Disney Wish with the debut of AquaMouse, a brand-new family water attraction that will bring to life the adventures of “The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse” animated shorts like never before. Additionally, three uniquely themed districts will offer fun water features, quick and casual dining options, and dedicated space for families, children and adults to relax and soak up the sun.
“Disney Cruise Line has pioneered many industry firsts through the years, including the first onboard water coaster and the first and only fireworks at sea,” said Danny Handke, senior creative director, Walt Disney Imagineering. “For the Disney Wish, we wanted to continue that tradition of innovation in a big way. With AquaMouse, we’re combining theme park thrills, iconic Disney animation and the magic of ocean cruising to create a one-of-a-kind water attraction unlike anything we’ve done before.”
United Kingdom residents will be able to experience the magic of Disney Cruise Line close to home with brand-new Disney Magic at Sea “staycation” sailings from U.K. ports this summer for a limited time. Featuring enchanted entertainment and with multiple layers of health and safety measures, the Disney Magic cruise ship plans to sail mostly 2- and 3-night voyages, as well as limited 4-night sailings round-trip from London Tilbury, Newcastle, Liverpool and Southampton.
“Our teams are bringing tremendous ingenuity and fun to these new cruises, tailoring them with care to the times we are living in, yet filling them with everything you’d expect from Disney, from great service and entertainment to immersive dining experiences and magic for the whole family,” said Thomas Mazloum, president of Disney Cruise Line.
