Disney World will introduce a novel way to recognize volunteers in 2010 with their “Give a Day – Get a Disney Day” promotion. The program will entitle participants to a free 1 day admission when they donate their time to a specified non-profit organization.
Here is how the volunteer program works…
Volunteers over the age of 18 must first register at the Disney World website. An additional eight members of the same household can be registered under the primary account. This includes children between the ages of 6 and 17.
Beginning in January 2010, the website will feature a searchable list of approved organizations. The majority of eligible volunteer opportunities will be from the HandsOn Network and the Points of Light Institute, although other outside organizations may be included. Only those organizations listed on the Disney website will qualify for the “Give a Day – Get a Disney Day” program.
After the service work has been verified by the eligible organization and submitted to Disney World, the account holder will receive a confirmation email. The user can then print the email voucher and redeem at the Disney World ticket with a valid ID.
If you have already purchased tickets to Disney World, or if you are an annual pass holder, the email voucher may be used alternatively for a 1 day admission at the following Disney properties…
Disney’s California Adventure Park
Magic Kingdom Theme Park
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park
Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Ticket quantities for this promotion are limited, although Disney has not said how many will be available. Also, there are certain blackout dates that apply depending on which park you are visiting.
“Give a Day – Get a Disney Day” vouchers are NOT valid for…
– Walt Disney World admission on March 29 – April 8 and July 4, 2010.
– Disneyland admission on February 13-14, March 21, June 21-22, July 4, November 21, and December 11-12, 2010.
It is assumed that this promotion will replace the 2009 Free Admission on Your Birthday Program, but nothing official has been stated yet.
