    Give a day get a Disney day.

    I just saw this. What do you think of this promotion. I did not see you get a gift card like this years promotion. Here it is below.

    http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/dis...t-A-Disney-Day


    Instead of a ticket you can get the following
    ◦Disney's Special FASTPASS® cards for certain attractions for you and up to 5 additional members of your party.†
    ◦A collectible Ear Hat figurine with exclusive trading pins‡
    ◦Donate your free ticket to a non-profit organization designated by Disney Parks.

    At least you dont have to go on your birthday to get it.

    Re: Give a day get a Disney day.

    I like it in principle, but as an AP holder I'd prefer to have more, or different, options. If not the gift card, then perhaps a transferable ticket that I could give to a friend or family member. I also wouldn't mind having the option to donate my free day to a charity of MY choice, instead of Disney's (although I have no reason to believe that Disney will designate anything other than worthy charities to receive donated tickets).

    I *LOVE* this program.

    In a time when not-for-profit organizations are struggling, Disney leverages their theme parks for community involvement?

    "Beautiful... bully beautiful."

    More companies need to find ways of inspiring people to give of themselves. Awesome job, Disney.

    Re: Give a day get a Disney day.

    Overall I think this is a great idea. I can't wait to see the list of organizations after the first of the year so that I can sign up!

    I might be a just a little cynical, but I think the idea of having Disney donating day to a non-profit on your behalf isn't such a big deal. Disney already donates many many tickets, and it basically doesn't cost them anything. I guess this is a nice idea (makes the volunteer feel good), but I don't see that part in particular as a big deal.

    While the "donate your ticket" option is nice, I think the main benefit to the charity is the participant's time. Hopefully, it will also build relationships between individuals and charities that wouldn't exist without the program.

    I like this promotion more and more every time I think about it!

    Re: Give a day get a Disney day.

    Hi!
    We know next year we will not be able to go to Disney World. So as a family we will happily donate our tickets. What a great way to spread the magic! I'm hoping it will go to children that do not have an opportunity to go to Disney. I know Disney works with Make A Wish.
    Bye!
