A heads-up for all for the compers who follow my blog who won't want to miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity, I'm sure !
In a year which has seen the ‘Great’ put back into Britain, it seems our American friends across the pond are keen to adopt some of our British heritage too. Walt Disney World resort in Florida today announced that it’s looking for its first ever ‘Walt Disney World Family’ – and it’s looking here in the UK. This never-been-done before search will unearth a unique family that captures what Walt Disney World is all about.
From today, UK families will be able to enter at www.disney.co.uk/waltdisneyworldfamily simply by explaining what makes their family one of a kind and why they best represent the attributes of Walt Disney World - ‘fun, relaxation, thrills and memories’. Much like the recent Emmy award-winning ‘Modern Family’, this world first family can be made up of a number of different people, including immediate or distant family, friends, colleagues or even neighbours.
The winning British family, as judged by a panel including well-known family girl Jemma Kidd, herself from a large and diverse family, will become famous with their family name commemorated on the Florida resort for an entire year, as well as featuring in a new marketing campaign.
Hugh Wood, Vice President and Managing Director of Disney Destinations International says: “Our first ever hunt for a UK family that best represents what Walt Disney World is all about shows just how ‘special’ Great Britain is regarded right now. This new wave of ‘togetherness’ highlighted by our recent research findings, shows that now more than ever, people are looking for a holiday to cater for the whole family’s needs. Here at Walt Disney World, we know how important it is for families to spend quality time together when they come away, which is why we ensure there is something for everyone to enjoy – from embarking on wild Africa treks through Animal Kingdom and learning to surf at the Typhoon Lagoon to relaxing with a game of golf at one of our five courses or with a spa treatment at our health clubs”.
For almost half of Brits (48%), having shared experiences and creating memories as a family to look back on is one of the key reasons why families still holiday together, so Walt Disney World Florida is the perfect holiday destination, offering something for everyone of all ages, from children to parents alike. From the heart and soul of the thrilling Magic Kingdom theme park to water parks, golf courses, shopping and entertainment complexes, beach resorts and spas, there’s magic around every corner.
