Give a Day Get a Disney Day

By Angel Lanier

I am very excited to share with you a new promotion from Disney!
Give a day. Get a Disney day.

Beginning January 1, 2010, you can volunteer at one of several official participating organizations and receive a certificate for a one-day FREE admission to a Walt Disney World or Disneyland Park! Children as young as 6 years old can participate. However, children ages 6-17 must be accompanied by an adult when volunteering. Volunteer opportunities are available in The United States, including Puerto Rico, and Canada. You must reside in either of these as well in order to sign up. You can receive 1 ticket per person for the year regardless of how many days you volunteer. But hurry, the tickets are limited, and could possibly run out before the deadline of December 15, 2010.

You can sign up online and select from a list of eligible volunteer opportunities with participating organizations. After you complete your volunteer activity, your service will be verified and you will receive email instructions to print vouchers that can be redeemed for your free ticket to a Walt Disney World or Disneyland theme park.

As with promotions in the past, if you already have a multi-day pass or annual pass, you can either receive Disney's Special FASTPASS cards for certain attractions for you and up to 5 additional members of your party, receive a collectible Ear Hat figurine with exclusive trading pins, or you can choose to donate your free ticket to a non-profit organization designated by Disney Parks. You can also upgrade your free ticket to another ticket type of greater value, like a multi-day pass or annual pass.

Most participants will receive their redeemable certificates within 2 weeks of completion of service. However, it is always a good idea to apply in advance. There are a few block-out dates as shown below:
• Walt Disney World Resort: March 29 - April 8 and July 4, 2010
• The Disneyland Resort: February 13-14, March 21, June 21-22, July 4, November 21, December 11-12, 2010.

There are many opportunities for you to serve your community. If you don’t find what you are looking for, expand your search to your closest big city. Donating blood is even an option for those over 16! Opportunities are limited for children, so hurry and volunteer today!
