Recession Mama Michele Ashamalla: I know some of you are aware of Disney's latest promotion, but I thought I would give you some more information, since it is starting soon. According to their website: "Our program officially begins on January 1, 2010. When it's live, you'll be able to visit and search for an eligible volunteer project. After completing the volunteer work, an e-mail will be sent from Disney with a link to print out a voucher to redeem at a theme park for a free one-day, one-park admission. And if you're unable to use the ticket, it can be donated to a charity designated by Disney."

What a fantastic opportunity! The ticket donation to charity is a nice touch, too. It's great that the whole family can get involved (but volunteers must be at least six years old). You need to preregister at before volunteering, and they are capping the number of free entries.

It appears that the cap is a million, though, so you won't need to sign up for your project on New Year's Day! It is unclear whether they will have projects available in all areas, but they say they are partnering with the HandsOn Network to facilitate volunteer matches.

Ticket prices to theme parks are insane, so I know I'll be going online early in the New Year to see what's available near me. Good luck!

Thanks for this post. I’ve dug up some more on the subject here:

I’m going on my very first trip to Disney World Jan 13 - here’s to hoping we can manage to volunteer in the next two weeks and get free tickets!

Miraculous! I’d been just writing an article on the same issue last night. Then this early morning, I came across your post which is much more desirable of information than I wrote.
