Hear this legendary Disney Imagineer share a behind the scenes look while raising money for one of the best organizations.
Give Kids the World
After temporarily closing in 2020, Give Kids The World Village reopened in January 2021. In case you’re not familiar with Give Kids the World Village, it’s an 89 acre non-profit resort in Central Florida. The resort provides week-long, cost-free wish vacations to critically ill children and their families from around the world. Check out a touching Give Kids the World Village story HERE.
When wish granting organizations, like Make-A- Wish, receive a request from a critically ill child who wants to visit Disney World, Give Kids the World (GKTW) is the organization that provides these wishes.
Give Kids The World is one of the recent Disney grant recipients and a crucial part of the Wish Granting efforts here at Walt Disney World Resort. It provides a place for Wish families to create priceless memories together.
This event is a fundraiser for Give Kids the World. All event proceeds will help make magical wishes come true for critically ill children and their families from around the world. This wonderful charity is the one who makes the wishes come true! Tony Baxter will speak April 7 and 8. He will speak Friday evening and Saturday afternoon.
This event takes place at the Give Kids The World Village in Kissimmee, Florida. General seating tickets cost $34.99 and VIP tickets cost $149.99 for each evening. There’s also an option to go for both nights for $59.99 general seating.
