With summer upon us, Disney VoluntEARS are already planning for the fall school season! There’s a lot of work to be done and these Cast Members and volunteers are ready to make a difference for students in the Central Florida area.

As shared via Walt Disney World Cast and Community Facebook: “Summer is almost here, but our Disney VoluntEARS have their sights set on back-to-school season! Recently, they stopped by A Gift For Teaching to help kick off the Great Big Backpack Build by filling hundreds of backpacks with essential school supplies for students in Central Florida. The organization has a goal of filling 15,000 backpacks, so we encourage interested Walt Disney World Cast Members to visit the HUB to learn how they can participate. #Service #DisneyCastLife #VoluntEARs”

About Mike/ Jamie

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
