Mickey’s 90th birthday is coming up on November 18th, 2018! Disney has announced the #ShareYourEars campaign or this year in conjunction with Mickey’s birthday celebration. This will be the third year that Disney has ran this campaign to benefit Make-A-Wish. From now until November 17th, 2018 guests are encouraged to show off their “Mickey Mouse ears” in a photo and then upload to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter in a public post using the hashtag #ShareYourEars. Disney will donate $5 to Make-A-Wish for every one of these posts, with up to $2 million total donated!
While at Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort and Disneyland Paris there will be fun “ear walls” that guests can take pictures in front of. These were created exclusively for #ShareYourEars by Walt Disney Imagineering. Guests can also celebrate at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort with photo frames on Main Street USA or on the Disney Cruise Line with special photo opportunities that are exclusive to the ships.
“It is a tremendous honor to support children whose wish is to come to Disney. Wish granting exemplifies the magic our 160,000 cast members and Imagineers create for guests all over the world every day,” said Bob Chapek, Chairman, Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products. “With this third #Share Your Ears campaign, we’ll get to make a difference in the lives of even more children and families.”
