It’s Walt Disney World Day!

December 3 is Walt Disney World Day in Central Florida! Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings declared it such. The celebration kicked off at Second Harvest Food Bank. Rena Langley shared more with Disney Parks Blog:

Today just might be the “best day ever” because Dec. 3, 2021, has been declared as “Walt Disney World Day” across Central Florida – the community we’ve proudly called home for more than 50 years.

We kicked off today’s celebration at Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida with Walt Disney World Resort leaders and an official proclamation from Orlando Mayor, Buddy Dyer and Orange County Mayor, Jerry Demings. Of course, the morning wouldn’t have been complete without Mickey Mouse & Minnie Mouse attending the event dressed in their EARidescent best.

Our Central Florida family and the many nonprofit organizations who support the community have played such an important role since Walt Disney World Resort first opened its gates in 1971, which is why we couldn’t imagine celebrating Walt Disney World Day anywhere else than at Second Harvest Food Bank – an organization driven to close the gap of unmet needs in Central Florida and a recent Disney grant recipient of $500,000 in honor of our 50th anniversary celebration.

Today, Disney VoluntEARS were proud to join in the celebration at Second Harvest Food Bank with some hands-on helping, sorting and packing food boxes for distribution to those who need it most.

While there are many individuals and organizations who made this day possible, and who have contributed to the success of Walt Disney World Resort over the past 50 years, we want to give a very special shout out to our cast members who keep Walt Disney’s dream and magic alive every day. Thank you for the inspiration and dedication you give to all who visit The Most Magical Place on Earth — this Day is for you because YOU are the magic.

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
