Disney VoluntEARS Bring Magic of Disney to City of Hope’s ToyFest

We love hearing about all of the great things that Disney and Disney VoluntEARS do to help out various charities and communities.  Disney Parks Blog shared that on Thursday, March 14th there were over 150 Disney VoluntEARS who participated in the City of Hope’s ToyFest.  There were a variety of ways that they participated including singing in the choir, hosting carnival games, animating Disney characters and interacting with children and families to help them create unforgettable memories.

This was the fourth annual winter festival and was themed to Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story! ToyFest had a variety of different activities like animation classes to learn how to draw Disney characters, character meet and greets and a performance from Disney’s Glendale Cast Choir who sang a variety of different Disney hits.

Disney has a strong legacy of supporting hospitals like City of Hope, and this event was created to bring a distinctly Disney experience to children battling life-threatening medical conditions. ToyFest is just another example of the Disney Team of Heroes’ commitment to reinventing the patient and family experiences at children’s hospitals across the globe.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
