TORONTO, Dec. 13, 2013 /CNW/ - With Canadian winter looming,
Travelocity.ca and Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Canada, whose
epic adventure "Frozen" hit theatres on November 27, know the search for sun will soon begin. To
help Canadians get their dose of vitamin D and take the edge off of our
own frozen home and native land, Travelocity.ca is offering Canadians a
chance to get frozen, then thaw out with a trip to a sunny destination.
To promote the theatrical release of Disney's "Frozen", Travelocity.ca
today launched a contest giving Canadians the chance to win a family
trip for four to Riviera Maya, Mexico. Participants simply add frozen
effects or Travelocity.ca's Roaming Gnome to their favourite beach
photo, and upload it to Travelocity.ca's Facebook page to enter. Each
unique photo submission gives users one entry into a draw for the grand
prize of a week in the sunny south this winter. Five secondary prizes
will be awarded, including the Disney Infinity video game, Anna and
Elsa Character Toy Sets and fun "Frozen" prize packs.
"This is the first time we've worked with Walt Disney Studios in Canada
and the relationship is fitting," said Brian Simpson, Resident Travel
Expert, Travelocity.ca. "As temperatures here start to plunge,
Canadians will long for the warmth of the sun, mirroring the storyline
of Disney's "Frozen" characters as they search for an end to their
To coincide with the Facebook contest, Travelocity.ca is offering
Canadians the chance to escape winter by putting the sun on sale. The
sale, which includes most sunny destinations, also offers discounts of
$50 off a $350 hotel booking, and $100 off a $1,500 Flight + Hotel
booking, as well as a "Frozen" gift.
In "Frozen," which opened in theatres across Canada on November 27,
fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) teams up with rugged
mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer
Sven in an epic journey, encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical
trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf in a race to find Anna's
sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the
kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter.
