Disney and Make-A-Wish Launch Wish Together Campaign

Disney and Make-A-Wish have been making life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses come true for the past 40 years. And with the impending release of the animation studio’s Wish, the two are launching their biggest campaign yet.

In honor of the campaign, and the November 22 theatrical release of Disney Animation’s all-new musical comedy Wish, set in a magical kingdom where wishes come true, enter the “Wish Together Sweepstakes”* for a chance to win a dream come true on land and sea with a very special family vacation for four. Prize includes a three-night stay in a Club Level Concierge room at a Disney Deluxe Resort hotel at Walt Disney World® Resort along with a Disney Cruise Line® vacation to The Bahamas aboard the Disney Wish in a one-bedroom Concierge Suite with verandah and an array of merchandise from shopDisney and more.

For every free entry received now through January 31, 2024, Disney will donate $5 to Make-A-Wish up to $1 million to grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Join Disney and Make-A-Wish to #WishTogether.** 

“At Disney, we’ve always believed in the magic of making wishes come true. Our relationship with Make-A-Wish has spanned over four decades, and it’s a testament to our commitment to delivering joy to children and their families,” said Lisa Haines, Senior Vice President, Corporate Social Responsibility, The Walt Disney Company. “With the ‘Wish Together’ campaign, we are thrilled to invite fans to bring to life the spirit of our latest film Wish — while coming together to support Make-A-Wish.”

“The release of Wish provides the perfect opportunity to talk about the power of wishing and the lasting impact wishes can have in the lives of wish kids and their families,” said Leslie Motter, President and CEO, Make-A-Wish America. “Historically, one out of every two wishes that we grant in the U.S. involves Disney, and we can’t wait to be able to make even more wishes possible thanks to the ‘Wish Together’ campaign.”

In addition to the sweepstakes, a new Wish product collection enchants with a range of offerings including costumes and accessories, apparel, and toys such as a singing doll and light-up plush. To add even more magic to the collection from the Walt Disney Animation Studios film, Wish, Disney will donate 10% of the sale price to Make-A-Wish, up to $1 million, for each of these items sold. Donations only apply to sales at US Disney stores, shopDisney.com, Disney Cruise Line® ships, and Disney-owned locations at Disneyland®Resort and Walt Disney World® Resort.

For more than 40 years, Disney and Make-A-Wish have worked together to grant life-changing wishes for kids facing critical illnesses and their families, starting when the first official wish was granted at Disneyland® Resort. Disney is honored to be the world’s largest wish granter for Make-A-Wish, joining together to make more than 150,000 wishes come true globally. These life-changing experiences help bring strength, joy, and a greater sense of hope to wish kids and their families when it’s needed most.

Wish stars Ariana DeBose as Asha, a sharp-witted idealist, makes a wish so powerful that it is answered by a cosmic force — a little ball of boundless energy called Star. Together, Asha and Star confront a most formidable foe — the ruler of Rosas, King Magnifico (Chris Pine) — to save her community and prove that when the will of one courageous human connects with the magic of the stars, wondrous things can happen.

The film is helmed by Oscar®-winning director Chris Buck and Fawn Veerasunthorn, and produced by Peter Del Vecho and Juan Pablo Reyes Lancaster Jones. Jennifer Lee executive produces — Lee and Allison Moore are writers on the project. With original songs by Grammy®-nominated singer/songwriter Julia Michaels and Grammy-winning producer/songwriter/musician Benjamin Rice, plus score by composer Dave Metzger,

Wish opens only in theaters on November 22, 2023.
