WHAT WOULD WALT DO? …THE WALT DISNEY FAMILY MUSEUM CELEBRATED FIRST ANNIVERSARY WITH A YOUTUBE CONTEST

SAN FRANCISCO November 30, 2010 – The Walt Disney Family Museum opened its doors in the Presidio of San Francisco almost a year ago on October 1, and to commemorate its first anniversary, the Museum had announced the launch of a YouTube Video Contest.

From September 27 to November 15, 2010, participants were invited to submit a short promotional video about the one-of-a-kind Museum that explores the fascinating life of Walt Disney, which includes ten interactive galleries that feature early drawings and animation, movies, music, listening stations, a 14-foot model of Disneyland and much more.

The Walt Disney Family Museum had produced a short instructional video to outline the contest rules and regulations, which can be viewed at http://wdfmuseum.squarespace.com/contest and at www.youtube.com/user/WDFMuseum.

It was a tough decision, but after a lot of thought and deliberation, we are proud to announce our Contest winners!
