News - UK 30-Jan-2023
Disney Parks & Resorts has launched a new competition to crown someone the "UK's Biggest Disney Fan". The full press release and details on how to enter is below. Entries close 13th February, 2023.
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.
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.
Janette Manrara will join the 10 families on their special journey and host many of the challenges testing their Disney fan credentials along the way. At Disneyland Paris, they will unleash their inner hero and take on missions at Marvel Avengers Campus, before journeying to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, where fans will compete amid lands of endless enchantment, and exhilarating thrills, and finally, on an adventure like no other, with Disney Cruise Line around the Bahamas, on the Disney Wish.
The final winner will be crowned with the title of UK's Biggest Disney Fan in front of Cinderella Castle at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. To commemorate the occasion, the winner will then receive a money-can't-buy stay in the Cinderella
Castle Suite, which is found through a secret doorway inside Cinderella Castle.
Speaking on the competition launch, Vice President of Disney Destinations International UK and EMEA, Angelica Costantini, remarked:
"This is a hugely exciting way for us to come together and share our Disney stories and memories during our 100th Anniversary year. We are inspired by the fans and families who have brought us into their hearts over the last 100 years and we wanted to choose a prize that reflected that. The 10 short-listed fans and their families are destined to have a truly magical time experiencing Disneyland Paris, Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disney Cruise Line, all whilst competing for the title UK's Biggest Disney Fan."
Janette Manrara: "As a life-long Disney fan, I'm thrilled to be part of the crowning of the UK's Biggest Disney Fan. I've been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida 43 times, the first time when I was aged one, and I even managed to get my husband onboard by putting an annual Disney Parks visit in our wedding vows before we honeymooned in Disneyland Paris! I chose Disney as my specialist subject on Mastermind so you could say, I'm more than qualified to help guide the fans on their magical journey."
