The Walt Disney Company Donates $1 Million to Make-A-Wish for “World Wish Day”

As we recently celebrated “World Wish Day”, The Walt Disney World made a special announcement that they were donating $1 million dollars to Make-A-Wish for the special day! The donation was announced as part of the grand reveal of Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship, the Disney Wish, that will join the Disney Cruise Line fleet in summer of 2022.


Disney shares: “To help us celebrate the power of wishes, three Make-A-Wish families shared their stories with us. For these families, the wish of a Disney cruise gave them something far greater than they ever could’ve imagined: newfound confidence, strength, family togetherness, new friendships, and most importantly, hope. We invite you to take a few minutes to hear about their journey and see the joy – and lasting impact – that a wish can bring.”


Did you know Disney and Make-A-Wish have worked together for 40 years now, granting more than 145,000 Disney-inspired wishes for wish kids with critical illnesses. If you’d like to learn more about Disney and the Make-A-Wish program, check out the details at

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.
