Don’t miss WDWNT’s Annual Tots’ Marathon 11/25-27 with 50 hours of fun, live auctions, and Bob’s Chapek Farewell Celebration!

Every year since 2008, WDW News Today has hosted a charity drive at the end of November to raise money for the Toys for Tots Foundation. To date, we have raised over $115,000 for this amazing organization through donations through our website and those made during our annual live program during the holiday season. This year, we’re once again asking you to be a part of this holiday tradition as we carry on Walt Disney’s dream and try to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.

More than 60 years ago, Walt Disney became one of the original sponsors of the Toys for Tots Foundation, which ensures that every underprivileged child gets a toy during the holiday season. Walt and his animators personally designed the original Toys for Tots train logo still in use today and the first sticker created for Toys for Tots.

In that spirit, WDW News Today is broadcasting a 50-hour live broadcast to raise money for Toys for Tots. Head over to our YouTube channel now and subscribe to get notified when the action goes live! We hope you’ll join us starting at 9 PM ET on November 25, 2022 when it goes live and you’ll help us by making a donation to this great cause at You can bid on live auction items at (more items will be added all weekend through Sunday at 7pm ET).

Here’s the event schedule for the full 50-hour broadcast (all times EST):
