Star Tours at Disney's Hollywood Studios

Disney Launches ‘Give a Day, Get a Disney Day’ TV Spots

posted on September 29th, 2009 by Thomas Smith, Social Media Director, Disney Parks


There’s no doubt that our “Give a Day, Get a Disney Day” announcement has generated excitement here at Disney Parks. And now, there’s more.

We’re premiering two unique television spots featuring the Muppets and celebrities James Denton and Taye Diggs. They’re helping announce how a day of volunteer service will get you a one-day ticket to one of the theme parks at Disneyland Resort or Walt Disney World Resort – for free.

In our first video, watch what happens when Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and Denton join forces with community volunteers to construct a home.

And in our second video, Taye Diggs inspires Mrs. Piggy and friends to finish a volunteer project and then celebrate at Disney Parks.

“Give a Day, Get a Disney Day” will begin on Jan. 1, 2010. But don’t wait to learn more. We’ve posted a special page at www.DisneyParks.com or www.DisneyParks.ca in Canada.

Our friends in legal want to be sure you know: Must pre-register and sign up for eligible volunteer opportunity at disneyparks.com. Ticket quantities for this program are limited. Must be at least age 6 to participate. Other terms and conditions apply. For details, see disneyparks.com in the United States and Puerto Rico. In Canada, see disneyparks.ca.

This is going to be great! I love the ‘What Will You Celebrate’ campaign, and I plan on helping out in Orlando many times next year!

How can you go wrong with The Muppets? This is awesome! Maybe now we can see them more at the parks. ;)

I love it, I love it!! Not that we should need any extra incentive to give of ourselves for others…but this is a GREAT thank you from Disney!

I really like “Bella Note” in the second spot. It reminds me of Tony’s Town Square Restaurant in Magic Kingdom :-)

Love the Muppets and the commercials. Taye Diggs + Miss Piggy= Look out Kermit! Wish Disney would allow volunteering before January 1 to count though. Only gives people who go in early February short time to get it done. Would also be nice if church volunteering counted. Still a great idea.

Do you have a behind the scenes of a :60 of either spot? Would love to see even more of the Muppets at Disneyland.

It bothers me sooo much when people refer to a Disney Park as just “Disney” (i.e Im going to Disney today.). It doesn’t make any sense. Disney is the name of a person not a destination. When people are planning on coming over to my house they don’t say, “I’m going to Wesley today”. That would be stupid and non-sensical. And now they (The Walt Disney Co.) are referring to the Parks that way in these commercials. Ugh…

Other than that though I think this is a great promo! We can always use more volunteers in the community. The commercials are otherwise really great as well. Its nice to see the Muppetss get work in this harsh economic times. ;-)

Hi everybody! I especially like the second ad, the one with Miss Piggy. Disney should take this kind of initiatives in Europe too, for our Disneyland Paris.

I think these commercials are great motivation to get people involved and so amazing how actors volunteer their time to a company like Disney! Disney is truly magical!
