Requests for Donations

Walt Disney World Resort is proud to focus its community outreach efforts on making a difference in the lives of children.  It is our goal to engage children in society by creating healthy, guiding relationships with adults, providing constructive free time activities, offering character-building opportunities, and encouraging a sense of compassion for others while helping those children who face adversity.

As a key component of our efforts to support non-profit organizations, Walt Disney World Resort is pleased to consider a charitable contribution to organizations headquartered in the Central and Eastern United States.

Please note the following information on our donation program:

  • Our customary donation is four One-Day Park Hopper tickets.  These tickets are valid during normal operating hours.  These passes will provide the recipients with a magical experience of visiting all of our unique theme parks: Magic Kingdom® Park, Epcot®, Disney’s Hollywood Studios® and Disney’s Animal Kingdom® in one day.  Please note: complimentary tickets cannot be upgraded nor can they be applied towards a package to meet eligibility requirements.
  • We only make donations to federally-licensed 501(c)(3) non-profit, charitable agencies.
  • Requests must be received at least 60 days prior to the event date to be considered.
  • Due to the popularity of the Walt Disney World Resort and Disney Cruise Line, we are not able to offer complimentary hotel or Disney Cruise Line accommodations.
  • We are happy to consider a donation to non-profit organizations for fundraising purposes.  Activities such as competitions, recognition events, holiday parties, door prizes, give-a-ways, raffles, or other incentives are not eligible for donations.
  • Sponsorships or donations for individuals or teams, for example, walk-a-thons, contests, pageants, scholarships, or ambassador programs will not be considered.
  • We do not provide support to organizations raising funds on behalf of another benefiting group.
  • Donations will be mailed directly to the not-for-profit organization; please do not submit additional delivery or residential addresses.
  • Outside of our Central Florida community of Orange, Osceola, Lake, Polk, and Seminole counties, one request per non-profit organization will be accepted within a calendar year.
