Do your kids love an adventure? And have they been inspired by watching Disney’s Moana go on hers?

We want to hear their brilliant travel tales and we will publish the best of them on our Lonely Planet Kids blog.

To celebrate the release of Disney’s Moana which is available on Blu-ray™, DVD and digital download, we’ve teamed up with Disney UK to ask your young explorers to tell us all about an exciting trip they’ve taken. It can be near to home or far away and involve anything they like as long as it’s an epic adventure in their eyes.

Apart from the kudos of having their work published online by Lonely Planet Kids, the winner will receive an amazing bundle of Moana goodies and Lonely Planet Kids books!

Ready to write? Get set, go!


Using between 100 and 200 words, tell us about an epic adventure you’ve been on! We’d also love you to illustrate your writing, using either a drawing or a photograph.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

– How far did you have to travel?
– Who did you go with?
– Was it somewhere new or somewhere you’ve been before?
– Were you inside or outside?
– Did you learn something you didn’t already know?
– What was the most exciting part of the trip? And the boring?
– What made it epic?


Please ensure a parent or guardian emails the entry to, including all of the following:

– Entrant’s name
– Entrant’s age
– The typed-up story submitted within the body of the email: we love seeing hand-written pieces but as we want to show your work on our blog we need to receive your work in a digital format (thanks adults for helping with this if necessary!)
– The drawing or high-resolution photograph (a scan is fine, maximum three per entry)

Entries must be received by 11.59pm (BST) on 12th May 2017. The competition is open to entrants aged under 16.

With all entries, please include confirmation that you are happy for us to share your child’s entry on our Lonely Planet Kids blog and excerpts on our Twitter and Facebook pages. Without this confirmation your entry is not valid. Please note that we are not able to confirm receipt of your entry and we are unable to accept entries which do not meet the word count or submission requirements.


As well as having their work published on our Lonely Planet Kids blog, the winner will receive an awesome bundle of Moana goodies including the Blu-ray™ DVD, a collection of Moana books, activity packs, stickers, a towel, bag and cap (see our Terms & Conditions for the full list), plus a bundle of Lonely Planet Kids books worth £100.

Ten runners-up will receive a digital download of Moana plus a copy of Let’s Explore Oceans, and will also have their work published on the blog.

Lonely Planet may choose to publish other notable entries.
