Disney is offering a once-in-a-lifetime gift for you or that special Disney addict on your holiday shopping list, and it’s guaranteed to be the single most unique and one-of-a-kind gift any Disney fan has ever received.
It’s not that we don’t like buying Christmas gifts–not really. It’s more that we dread the yearly lament over that one person on our gift-giving list for which finding the perfect present seems the arduous and nearly insurmountable task, especially if we happen to be the kind of gift-giver who relishes putting great thought and personal attention into the selection of that gift.
And if that difficult-to-buy-for loved one happens to be a Disney fanatic, that arduous and nearly insurmountable task of choosing a gift just became the virtually impossible task. But this year, Disney and Neiman Marcus have partnered together to make finding the most unique gift ever for your Disney-loving loved one easier than ever, assuming, of course, that you’re willing to pay for it.
In celebration of 100 years of Disney magic and the highly anticipated release of Disney’s motion picture Wish—the all-new musical-comedy that follows the adventures of Asha and a little ball of boundless energy named Star—Disney has created a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You’ll have the rare opportunity to see your own wish become a reality—an animated character of you (or your designated guest) brought to life by the talented artists at the Walt Disney Animation Studios.
You’ll voice your own character, enjoy a private tour of the Walt Disney Animation Studios in Burbank, and have special meet-and-greets and photo opportunities. After the animators have worked their magic, you will receive a digital copy of your personalized character’s cameo in a special animated short video. And, like in an enchanted dream, you’ll become part of the magic with a coveted invitation to a Disney film premiere in Hollywood.
Brought to life by the legendary animators of The Walt Disney Animation Studios, Disney will produce a personalized animated short video of you or your designated guest becoming a custom animated character. The purchaser and up to three guests will discover the coveted spaces where the animators at The Walt Disney Animation Studios make their magic and get to learn how our beloved stories come to life.
If this gift sounds fantastical, that’s because it is. The Wish Come True: A Disney Animation Experience package is one of the 2023 Fantasy Gifts at Neiman Marcus. Other items on the list include a Moet & Chandon Champagne Vending Machine, priced at $44,000, the DNA Lamborghini (Second Edition) book for $33,500, and an 18k White Gold Diamond Three-Cluster Statement Ring, only available in size 7.5, for $7,000 (both see in the image below).
As part of the Wish Come True: A Disney Animation Experience fantasy gift, you or your loved one will receive the following:
- A personalized animated short video that depicts you (or the aforementioned loved one) as an animated character, a voice-over recording session in which you’ll be able to provide your voice to the animated likeness of yourself, and a character design that will be delivered to you in a digital download format upon completion
- A private VIP tour of the Walt Disney Animation Studios, located in Burbank, California
- Exciting meet-and-greet opportunities, as well as various special photo opportunities
- An invitation the the premiere of one of Disney’s upcoming major films, which will take place in Hollywood, California
In honor of this special fantasy gift that is part of a partnership between Disney and Neiman-Marcus, and as part of Disney’s Wish Together campaign, The Walt Disney Company is supporting the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which grants wishes for children of various ages who are living with critical illnesses.
