Universal Orlando

Universal Orlando, transports you from reality right into a Hollywood set, through a tornado twister, onto a mystical rollercoaster journey with dragons, into a land of super heroes, down thrilling waterfalls and right into the middle of your favorite Dr. Seuss story! Sounds like a fun dream - one that becomes quite real for children with life-threatening illnesses. Universal Orlando, long-time hero to GKTW, provides support through significant ticket and in-kind donations, volunteerism, venue and attraction design, and workplace giving.

Each family who arrives at Give Kids The World receives theme park tickets providing two fun-filled days at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure – a truly VIP experience. The visit to Universal Orlando is complete with complimentary parking and guest assistance. The family receives a Guest Assistance Pass, which combined with the special GKTW Button, allows families to use Universal Express to bypass the long lines for the attractions. Employees of Universal Orlando take pride in the service they provide to their guests, but they truly shine when it comes to the families of GKTW. Each employee takes time to personally recognize the wish child and family in in anyway they can – above and beyond the call of duty.

Over the years, Universal Orlando has taken their hero role to new levels. This special company has contributed souvenir items for our families to support our daily Gift Giving program. Gifts have included super hero-themed dog tags, key chains, bracelets, plush, backpacks, and many other fun and authentic goodies.

At the Village, Universal Orlando provides weekly visits from Barney and Friends and helped us create a number of our special attractions, including Marc’s Dino Putt, our dinosaur-themed and fully interactive, seven hole miniature golf course. Fun and smiles can be found around every corner of this special course that includes “spitting” Altrosaurs, a deep cave and our very own Tyrannosaurus Rex.

In addition, Universal Orlando employees continue to dedicate their time and talent with countless hours of volunteerism to help support our daily operation and as well as our many special events.

It is only fitting that these spectacular parks are such spectacular supporters of Give Kids The World!
