Volunteer and Get a Free Day at Disney

February 2, 2010

Update 4/7/2010: Looks like the first million people have claimed their free ticket, so this program is over. Let’s hope Disney offers it again next year.


Give a Day. Get a Disney Day.

That’s the offer and it’s as simple as it sounds. To get people volunteering in their communities, Disney is offering a free 1-day, 1-theme park ticket for either Disneyland® Resort or Walt Disney World® Resort to the first million people who complete their day of service. The offer is good in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico.

As a traveler you probably already have a strong volunteer ethic. Why? Because you’ve seen a little of the world, you appreciate cultures, communities and the elements of nature that bind us all together, and you know how important it is to support the people and programs that try to make life better for everyone.

Reaching out and connecting with others is what being a traveler is all about, even when you’re not far from home. So help out at a community garden, a local animal shelter or your old elementary school, and know that what you’re doing is just as important as if you were doing it on the other side of the world.

Oh, and enjoy the added benefit of free rides. Woo hoo!

Here’s the fine print:
You must pre-register and sign up through this site to volunteer and complete your service at an eligible volunteer opportunity in the fifty United States, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico or Canada to receive a ticket after verification of such service. Ticket quantities for this program are limited. You must be at least 18 to sign up. You may only sign up a maximum of 8 members of your household. Children must be at least 6 to participate in the program. One ticket per person, regardless of the number of times you volunteer. Program begins January 1, 2010 and continues until tickets are distributed or until December 15, 2010, whichever occurs first. Your voucher for a free ticket must be redeemed by December 15, 2010, and used on the same day of redemption.

Sign up now and find a great volunteer opportunity near you!


  1. My daughter’s college had to do volunteer work and are heading to disney tomorrow.

    Is there any way that if they received confirmation from their group that they volunteered for that they will be able to get passes?

    Please advise.

  2. Hi Terrie,

    I don’t work for Disney, so I’m not the right person to ask, but from reading their site it looks like you have to pre-register online, then do the work, then get your free pass.

    The program lasts through the end of the year, or until all 1 million free passes are claimed, which will probably happen well before December. If your daughter is planning another Disney trip this year, have her register for this program now so she can take advantage of it.


  3. Program is closed now according to their website!

    • Aww. Well, it was a good offer while it lasted. Thanks for letting me know; I’ll update this post.
