Disney Kicks Off Ultimate Toy Drive Supporting Toys For Tots


Disney has officially kicked off it’s Toys For Tots Ultimate Toy Drive on Shop Disney! This annual toy drive effort will continue now through December 24, 2022.

For years Disney has worked hand-in-hand with Toys For Tots. This year marks 75 years since the partnership began back in 1947 when Walt Disney and his animators designed the original Toys For Tots train logo.

There are a couple of ways you can help.

  1. Donate a toy online through Shop Disney.

Disney has about 13 different items you can purchase online and donate to the toy drive.

2. You can donate a toy in person at select Disney locations through December 12. Toys can be donated at:

  • 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.

3. You can donate to your local Toys For Tots drive by placing toys in donation boxes at your local area businesses.

I’m sure Disney will also give extra money to the cause too. They usually do, but they have not yet posted about it. Stay tuned for more details when they do. I just wanted to let you know that their annual toy drive has kicked off.
