Disney Baby Little Character Contest

Does my photo need to show my baby in Disney clothes, in a Disney costume or with Disney products?

No, we are not specifically looking for Disney-related photos. Photos showing your child with Disney characters, in Disney attire, with Disney toys, etc. will not be given preference over others in the finalist selection process.

Does my contest entry need to include a title or a description?

No, title and text are not required. If you choose to include a title and/or a description, it should be related to the photo and will be considered as a part of the finalist selection process. We want to protect your privacy, so please do not include names, address or location in your title and/or description.

Does my contest entry need to fit into one of the categories on the Website?

No, it is optional to categorize your entry into Getting Ready, In the Nursery, Dressing Baby, On-the-Go, Mealtime, Playtime, Bathtime, or Baby’s Firsts. This information will not be considered in the finalist selection process.

I have two children under 24 months. Do I need to submit their photos separately?

It’s up to you! Photos must include at least one child under 24 months (born between September 2010 and May 2012). But photos of twins, siblings, or your child pictured with friends or family members who are not under 24 months will all be accepted.

Why does the age requirement for entry say newborn to 24 months and born 9/2010 – 5/2012?

One of the prizes for the Grand Prize winner is to be featured in a Disney Baby ad in a national magazine and on the site. The photo shoot will take place September 2012, so we need to ensure the winner is still a baby – newborn to 24 months – at this time!

Do the Magical Moments I added to the Website before the contest began count as contest entries?

No, but you are welcome to re-submit them during the contest entry phase (May 15-June 18) and they will be entered into the contest.

How do I remove a contest entry or an existing Magical Moment from the Website?

Log in to the Website. Go to the Disney Baby Magical Moments page and click on My Moments. You should see all the moments you’ve added to the Website. To remove a moment, click on it, and then click the “remove this moment” button.

I entered the contest, but my entry is no longer on the Website. What happened?

Entries not in compliance with the Contest Rules and Guidelines or Disney’s Terms of Use will be removed. Guests whose entries have been removed will receive a letter of explanation.

How do I find my entry on the Website?

Log into the Website and go to the Magical Moments page. Click on My Moments and you should see your entries.

Why do I have to register to vote?

We require guests to register to maintain the integrity of the contest voting process and to ensure that guests can only vote once per entry per day per person/valid e-mail address.

How does Fan Favorite voting work?

From May 15, 2012 to June 18, 2012, members may vote for their favorite entries once per entry per day per person/valid e-mail address. Make sure to share your entry with your friends and family and get them to vote!

How can I share my entry with others?

You can share your entry by emailing the URL of your entry page to your friends and family. To do this, you can use the “email a friend” link on the page, or you can simply copy and paste the URL into an email. You can also share your entry on Facebook using the Facebook Share button.

Do I have to submit different entries to be considered for the Weekly Winner and the Fan Favorite?

No, entering the contest automatically enters you into both the relevant Weekly Winner contest and the Fan Favorite contest. You may enter as many times as you want as long as each entry includes a different photo. You may not resubmit the same entry into subsequent weekly entry periods.

How many photos of the same child can I enter into the contest?

There is no limit to the number of entries as long as each entry is different.

Will votes for different photos of the same child be added together?

No. Each photo a guest submits is treated as a separate entry; votes will not be combined.

If I enter my child on the last day of the contest, will they only have one day to get Fan Favorite votes?

Yes, the last day to enter your child into the contest is June 18, 2012. Fan Favorite voting ends on this day. Your child may be considered by the judges to be one of the five (5) Little Character finalists, independent of how many Fan Favorite votes your entry receives.

How do you monitor votes?

Guests are required to register with a unique e-mail address and log in to vote. At the Sponsor’s sole discretion, guests may be disqualified from the Contest and/or from the voting process if they create one or more invalid e-mail addresses/accounts with intent to affect the integrity of the submission and/or voting process.

Do Fan Favorite votes help my child become one of the five (5) Little Character finalists?

No. The Fan Favorite winner is determined based on the number of votes an entry receives. The five Little Character finalists are chosen by a panel of judges, independent of how many Fan Favorite votes each entry receives.

How is the Fan Favorite winner chosen?

The one entrant in the Disney Baby Little Character Contest who receives the most valid fan votes during the Fan Favorite Voting period (May 15- June 18, 2012) will be named the Fan Favorite. Disney reminds you to respect the contest and those participating and reserves the right to review and disqualify votes, or voters, who violate the terms and conditions of the contest.

How are the Little Character finalists and winners chosen?

From May 15 to June 18, a panel of judges will select a weekly winner from the entries submitted each week based on the following criteria: 34% for overall appearance of the baby in the photo, 33% for overall personality of the baby as expressed through the photo and 33% for emotional appeal. The Panel’s decision is final. Each weekly winner must be willing to be showcased on the Website. From June 28 to July 19, the public will vote to decide the one Grand Prize winner from among the five finalists. The Grand Prize winner will be the finalist with the most valid votes at the conclusion of the finalist voting phase on July 19.

If my entry is not selected as as a weekly winner for the current week, is my entry still considered for each of the following weeks?

No, weekly winners are selected from just the entries submitted that week. See weekly entry periods below. In order to be considered for each weekly contest, you must resubmit a new entry (with a different photo) during each period.

What are the dates for the weekly winner selections?

There will be a winning entry selected from each week for a total of five (5) weekly winners:

  • Week One entry period begins at 12:01 P.M. on May 15 and ends at 11:59:59 A.M. May 21 PST
