A Different Way To Show Your #DisneySide

When I started to plan my #DisneySide Party I wanted to add an element of giving back to the Orlando Community that has close ties to the Disney Community, and I decided that Give Kids the World Village was the perfect choice!

Give Kids the World Village is Village is a 70-acre resort complete with over 144 Villa accommodations, entertainment attractions, whimsical venues, and fun specifically designed for children with special needs.

The Give Kids the World Mission Statement:

Give Kids The World is a non-profit organization that exists only to fulfill the wishes of all children with life-threatening illnesses and their families from around the world to experience a memorable, joyful, cost-free visit to the Central Florida attractions, and to enjoy the magic of Give Kids The World Village for as long as there is a need.


Over 134,000 children have had their dream come true at Give Kids The World. No child in need has ever been turned away – and no child ever will. Give Kids The World is a place where families find joy, laughter, serenity, and a lifetime of memories. Through the tireless support of our volunteers, employees and generous partners, we dedicate each and every day to these special families.

To keep ‘costs down and smiles up’ Give Kids the World Village looks for donations of items from Wish List to make the most of their resources, and I have asked my guests to bring a donation from this list to my #DisneySide Party.

The Wish List includes items needed for their daily gift-giving program, supplies for our Family Entertainment Program, and items to help keep the Village sparkling.

So how can you help and show your support and #DisneySide from home?
