You Can Vote on Walt Disney World Toy Story Land-Inspired Turtle Names for Tour de Turtles Event

Disney’s Vero Beach Resort, located a couple hours away from Walt Disney World will be hosting their 11th annual Tour de Turtles event. The event is scheduled to take place at the resort on July 28th, 2018.  For this spectacular event, the resort will team up with Disney’s Animals, Science & Environment Team and the Sea Turtle Conservancy in order to celebrate two loggerheads’ great migration and track their journey from nesting on the beach to their foraging grounds. There is turtle nesting activity that takes place on the beach around Disney’s Vero Beach Resort for several miles, which makes it one of the most active sea turtle nesting areas in all of Florida.

This year’s Tour de Turtles event has taken on the theme of Toy Story Land from Walt Disney World.  Toy Story Land finally opened to guests on June 30th at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World.  During the event, guests are encouraged to care for the animals, big and small, who live in their own backyards.

Disney Parks Blog is sponsoring the event and is giving guests the chance to vote for their favorite Toy Story names for the two turtles that will be released.  The name selections include Jessie, Bo-Peep, Trixie and Mrs. Potato Head.  Guests can click here to head over to Disney Parks Blog and place their vote.  Soon there will be an announcement of the names as well as live stream of the event.

Which names would you pick for the two turtles?

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!
