Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World inspires children and adults all over the world to dream, imagine, and wish upon a star. Dream of your future – Imagine your life living in a Castle – Wish upon a star for your heart’s desire. Now…believe that your imagination can become a reality and your dreams and wishes do come true. Walt Disney World joined Give Kids The World at our inception and continues today – fulfilling the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses. Walt Disney World serves as a hero to every child impacted by the GKTW experience. This company portrays superior dedication to the mission of GKTW

For many of our families, taking a fantasy vacation like a trip to Walt Disney World is a dream that is far beyond their reach. With the support of Walt Disney World, Give Kids The World has the ability to provide an amazing experience at all four of the beloved Walt Disney World parks: Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Each family member and the Wish Child receive three-day park hopper tickets, free of charge. The Wish Child’s GKTW “Magic” button and a WDW Guest Assistance Pass provides “fast pass” service to the families, allowing them to fully enjoy the attractions offered at each park and cost-free parking! In their traditional style, Walt Disney World Cast Members provide excellent guest service to the families as well including an invitation to the Wish Lounge, located at the Magic Kingdom. This special room is dedicated to wish children and their families, recognizing the special needs and attention of each family.

Back at Give Kids The World Village, Walt Disney World’s favorite characters visit twice a week – providing personal photo opportunities. Each family receives a printed portrait with the characters, presented in a specially designed Disney portfolio. Walt Disney World has also found unique gifts to share with our families including donations of favorite Disney DVD’s.

Beyond their contribution of donations, Walt Disney World promotes volunteerism through their VoluntEARS program - a priceless gift of the heart. Walt Disney World Cast Members are found serving meals, scooping ice cream, face painting, greeting families at the airport, landscaping, painting, and even entertaining our families through events and shows hosted at GKTW Village. There is no job too small or too big for this crowd!

Without the incredible support of Walt Disney World, Give Kids The World would not have the ability to fulfill the wishes of these special children. Together, we will continue to inspire hope in the children of Give Kids The World by encouraging children to dream, imagine, and wish upon a star.
