New 2010 Disney Parks Promotion - "Give A Day. Get A Disney Day"

Starting today Disney Parks has announced its new promotion for 2010 to replace the "Free Birthday" promotion of 2009. It is keeping the overall "What Will You Celebrate?" theme, but adding a new element of service to people who would like to get a free day at a Disney Park, whether it be one of your favorites at Disney World or at Disneyland in California.

The new promotion is called:
"Give a Day. Get A Disney Day." The idea is that if you volunteer a day of service to a qualified organization, Disney will give you a one day Disney Park ticket.

From the DisneyParks.com website:

BEGINNING JANUARY 1, 2010, when you sign up here (www.DisneyParks.com) to volunteer a day of service with a participating organization(and your service is completed and verified) you'll get one day admission to a Walt Disney World® or Disneyland®theme park, FREE! We want to inspire one million people to volunteer a day of service.

From the WDWNews.com website:
“In 2010, we want to recognize and add one more reason for celebration: the contributions people make to their communities every day,” said Jay Rasulo, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. “We want to inspire 1 million volunteers – people who will invest time and energy to make their own communities and neighborhoods a better place.”

To enable people to sign up for an eligible volunteer project, Disney is working with HandsOn Network, the nation’s largest volunteer network. Part of Points of Light Institute, HandsOn Network has 250 on-the-ground volunteer action centers across the country and connects volunteers to more than 70,000 nonprofit agencies that need their help.

“Wherever we live, our communities need our hands-on help to thrive,” said Michelle Nunn, CEO of Points of Light Institute. “We are thrilled at this unprecedented effort by Disney Parks to help mobilize 1 million volunteers into action. ‘Give a Day, Get a Disney Day’ has the potential to reach so many families and instill the volunteer spirit in a new generation.”

Bob Iger, president and CEO of The Walt Disney Company, said, “‘Give a Day, Get a Disney Day’ fits perfectly with our long history of supporting and participating in volunteer efforts. It’s a great way to honor guests who are making a positive contribution to their communities.”

This sounds like an interesting promotion, and won't be bound to the travel restrictions of being able to travel to a Disney Park on your actual birthday.

The promotion doesn't start until Jan. 1, 2010, and service that you perform prior to that date doesn't count. If this sounds like something that interests you check out the website link above to get all of the necessary details.

Disney will be airing commercials soon and will formally announce this promotion on Good Morning America this morning.

    How did you find out about the 2010 promo so early?? My understanding is that it was not going to be released until later this morning! Great news! Thanks for sharing

  2. Heidi - I try to keep in touch with the upcoming Disney World news and rumors. If I hear that an announcement is coming, I will check a number of different official Disney Websites to confirm the information before I post it on Only WDWorld. I try to avoid posting information before it is confirmed by an official source.
