For the first time ever, Disney’s Toontown Online fun-filled virtual world is getting even sillier! Due to high amounts of Toon-generated mayhem, the rising silly levels are making objects on the street come alive. Juggling trash cans, pie-delivering mailboxes and cheering fire hydrants are helping those zany Toons play sillier-than-ever gags on the evil robot Cogs. It’s history in the making!
Guests are now able to picture themselves (or other loved ones) on their very own refillable Disney Gift Card. The cards are available both online at the Disney Store and in person at Exposition Hall at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.
There appears to be no additional charge for the customization.
Be aware that there are a few supplemental terms and conditions which are viewable online after uploading the photo (but prior to purchasing). They appear to be fairly non-restrictive, but do include the warning that DisneyStore.com can replace the personalized Disney Gift Card with a more generic one if they find the image to be in violation of the terms.
