    Re: Give A Day program reaches 1 million volunteers in 10 weeks

    I signed up for 6 events... and all of them either changed their mind and no longer wanted to participate in the program, or only wanted me if i could do it full time-long term (I'm an 830-5 teachers college student). And we planned a a short vacation around this free day, and so now I'm staying at Pop for 2 nights but can't afford the park ticket lol. We haven't decided whether to just buy the tickets anyways and put them on the credit card, or to just enjoy two nights at pop century. Either way, I was very frustrated... I'm not sure why so many organizations signed up without realizing that it was just for ONE day? I would have gladly done more... just not full time.

    Happy to know that Give a Day, Get a Disney Day proved to be so successful; seems it even caught Disney execs off guard on how fast they would reach their goal. I want to personally congratulate the 1 million volunteers for giving back to the community, and it shouldn't stop now. Keep doing it, to truly make 2010 the most memorable year it can be. Mickey ears off to all of you!
    Keep it cool, and keep moving forward!

    Thankfully, I signed up for an April 17th event just days before Disney announced they were at capacity. I've read somewhere that they'll still give vouchers if you've already signed up, but does anyone here know for sure?

    Yes, as long as you are properly registered for a particular opportunity you are all set. It is mentioned specifically in the updated FAQ on the Disney site.
