There’s a new Disney Color Collection and we’re so excited! To honor the 40-year relationship between Disney and Make-A-Wish, Disney has announced the launch of the all-new product offering – Wishes Come True Blue. Learn more below.
Here are all the details from Disney Cast Member Anthony Armenia:
For more than 40 years, Disney has been providing magic to wish kids and their families when they need it most. Today, I am beyond excited to announce that we will be launching three all-new product offerings — each unlocking a special donation to Make-A-Wish® — over the next few months, kicking off with the latest color collection, Wishes Come True Blue.
Inspired by Make-A-Wish, this collection celebrates 40 years of Disney and Make-A-Wish working together to grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. These new offerings will appear at select Disney parks around the world, the Disney store and online at shopDisney beginning today!
In addition, for each item purchased in the Wishes Come True Blue color collection now through World Wish Day 2021 (April 29, 2021) in the US, Canada and across Europe, Disney will donate 25 percent of the purchase price (up to US $500,000) to Make-A-Wish. Wish.org/Disney
This is the first-ever Disney color collection that celebrates and supports a nonprofit’s impact and ongoing collaboration with Disney. This collection features a wide variety of products from headwear and accessories to apparel and much more!
The collection also marks the debut of two all-new products, including the first-ever adjustable children’s Mickey Mouse ear headband – allowing children of all abilities to wear their ears with comfort and joy – as well as the first cloth face masks for children and adults alike by Spirit Jersey.
In honor of this launch, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products is donating 10,000 cloth face masks from the collection to Make-A-Wish.

Here are all the details from Disney Cast Member Thomas Smith:
Since the first wish was granted at Disneyland Resort 40 years ago, Disney and Make-A-Wish® have worked together to make more than 140,000 wishes come true. And while these unprecedented times have caused a temporary suspension of in-person wish experiences, they have also created opportunities to grant wishes in a whole new way. That’s why we were so excited to help our friends at Make-A-Wish grant their 500,000th wish!
This 500,000 milestone was for 16-year-old Karina, who generously wished “to give kids a day to forget they’re sick.” Karina has fond memories of her care-free days at summer camp where her problems and stresses took a backseat to fun and laughter. Inspired by this experience, Make-A-Wish collaborated with her to create a virtual camp called “Kamp Karina” with activities designed to put a smile on the faces of children in need from the comfort of their own homes. The virtual day-long “camp” was streamed on YouTube and included a magic show, a science class, story time, and some special Disney surprises!
Since every part of The Walt Disney Company helps Make-A-Wish grant life-changing wishes, it was only fitting that the whole company get involved in granting Karina’s wish! Walt Disney Animation Studios hosted a “Frozen”-inspired drawing class featuring a professional animator and Josh Gad, the lovable voice of Olaf. ESPN worked with the NBA to put 32 wish kids, including Karina, in the virtual stands for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Disney Parks, Experiences and Products provided Disney-themed trivia as part of Disney Family Game Night and a sweet fireworks show to cap off the Kamp Karina program. It was a magical day for everyone involved!
Check out this video to see how Disney was able to play a part in this inspiring day of laughter and fun!
Granting wishes creates magical memories for children and their families, and Disney is working closely with Make-A-Wish to find innovative ways to stay engaged with children whose wishes have been deferred due to the pandemic.
