"Give a Day, Get a Disney Day" Program
With Disney's new program "Give a Day, Get a Disney Day," your trip expenses could be cut in half. It's simple - a free one-day ticket to a Disneyland or Walt Disney World theme park for guests who volunteer a day of service to a participating organization. Visit www.DisneyParks.com to search for an eligible volunteer project near you. After completing the volunteer work, an email will be sent from Disney with a link to print out a voucher to redeem at a theme park for a free one-day, one-park admission. And if you're unable to use the ticket, it can be donated to a charity designated by Disney.
Attend the VNAA's Annual Meeting then use your voucher during the weekend to get in free to a Disney park in Orlando, Fla. Since the Annual Meeting is in April, be sure to log-on today to www.DisneyParks.com and sign up for a volunteer opportunity that takes place between now and March.
