Leading up to the launch of Disney Infinity 3.0 on Aug. 30 — and the introduction of the Star Wars franchise to the gaming system — Disney Interactive is hosting three summer tournaments. The three winners will be invited the final round of the contest, which will take place onboard the Disney Dream cruise ship in its new Disney Infinity zone.
The first leg of the tournament was held during Comic Con in San Diego in July, and the second contest takes place on Aug. 15 during the D23 Expo in Anaheim, Calif. But the deadline to enter is this week — 11:59 p.m. PT July 26 to be exact. Disney Interactive will choose 16 players for this leg of the tournament. They will be filmed for broadcast during the tournament at D23, and all 16 will receive Disney Infinity Prize Packs.
To get started, potential contestants should make a video that is no longer than 1 minute in length. In it, the player must:
** State his or her first name only to protect privacy.
** Tell what he or she likes most about Disney Infinity.
** Describe his or her favorite toy box ever made and explain why.
** Choose a favorite Disney Infinity figure and explain the selection.
** The video must be all original content, so get creative!
There are a few rules, too, that must be followed:
** Entrants must be at least 13 years old, and those who are minors must have a parent or guardian’s permission.
** Entrants must be legal residents of and physically live within the 50 United States or the District of Columbia.
** If other people are in the video, they only can be immediate family members. They also can only use first names.
** There cannot be any brands or logos, other than Disney, visible in the background or on clothing.
** No rude gestures or profanity and other inappropriate behavior will be accepted.
** Only one video per person may be entered.
Disney Interactive offers these tips for making a great video:
** Make sure to hold the camera so your video comes out wider than it is tall, like a movie screen.
** Use sunlight, light bulbs, whatever! Shoot with lots of light coming from behind the camera and shining on you or your family!
** The closer you are to the camera or separate microphone, the better your voice will sound.
The winner of each of the three legs of the tournament, including the upcoming contest at the D23 Expo, receives a Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Starter Pack and a trip to the IN Games Finals Nov. 6-9 on the Disney Cruise Line, aboard the Disney Dream. “This epic showdown will take place inside the new immersive Disney Infinity zone onboard the Disney Dream. While onboard competitors will have the chance to pilot hyperspace inside the new Star Wars: Millennium Falcon, taste goodies galore at Vanellope’s Sweet & Treats, and unwind after the competition at Disney’s private island paradise, Castaway Cay,” promotional materials state. The 3-night Bahamian cruise includes the following:
** 2 coach airfares if the winner resides outside a 200 mile radius of the ship’s home port.
** Round trip ground transportation from the airport to the ship.
** 3-night cruise on the Disney Dream for two people in one stateroom. This includes pre-paid gratuities, government taxes, fees and port expenses (as defined in the Disney Cruise Line brochure), plus all meals, except at Palo and Remy.
