Disney states that this year, toy donations can be made both online through shopDisney.com or in person with a new, unwrapped toy at a designated drop-off location. A list of these can be found at Disney.com/toydrive.

Walt Disney toys for tots

For 75 years, Disney has supported Toys for Tots to help bring toys to children in need. In fact, our relationship dates to the program’s beginnings, when Walt Disney and his studio artists personally designed the original Toys for Tots train logo we still see and use today.

The Disney Ultimate Toy Drive takes place from now through December 24, 2022, and you can donate a toy to Toys for Tots at shopDisney.com. Or, if you’d prefer to gift in person, there are plenty of donation opportunities through December 12, 2022. Bring a brand-new, unopened, unwrapped toy to the following destinations:

  • 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 December 10, 2022, through December 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 November 5, 2022, through December 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.

Throughout the holiday season, Disney will also support Toys for Tots in several ways, including by airing a public service announcement on our television networks and streaming platforms – such as ABC, Disney Channel, Disney Junior, Disney XD, Freeform, FX, Hulu, and National Geographic – to encourage viewers to participate in the Disney Ultimate Toy Drive. Content from across the company’s networks, including ESPN’s “GetUp!,” will feature Disney Ultimate Toy Drive integrations to highlight the season of giving and the importance of supporting communities in need. Disney Movie Club will also be joining in by donating over 2,000 toys to a local Toys for Tots chapter in Wisconsin. Additional activations will be announced throughout the campaign.

Today, Disney launched the heartfelt, final installation of its trilogy series “From Our Family to Yours” – an animated short that celebrates the joy of giving, featuring a song sung by Jessica Darrow, also known as Luisa Madrigal in Disney’s “Encanto.”
