I am BIG fan of The Dis, and DIS Con 2022 is your chance to see some great Disney talent, do some shopping, and spread magic as the event benefits Give Kids the World!!!
Today is World Wish Day, and it’s the perfect day to talk about DIS Con 2022, a one-of-a-kind expo celebrating all facets of the wonderful world of Disney – from Disney, Marvel and Pixar animation to film, television, theme parks, music, and memorabilia.
The event will take place on Friday, September 30, and Saturday, October 1, at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort (1000 W. Buena Vista Drive, Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830)
Tickets are on sale now, and the event benefits Give Kids The World Village, an 89-acre, whimsical nonprofit resort in Central Florida that provides critically ill children and their families from around the world with magical weeklong, cost-free wish vacations at no cost.
“Children with critical illnesses face countless appointments, treatments and hospital stays, and they are often told “no” due to the limitations of their illness. Give Kids The World offers wish children and their families a week of “yes” where they can forget their worries, experience joy, and spend priceless time together creating unforgettable memories,” says Give Kids The World President and CEO Pamela Landwirth. “We are grateful to our tremendous partners at Walt Disney World® and to the many sponsors, donors and participants who are making DIS Con possible for the benefit of the precious families we serve.”
Proceeds will be generated by ticket sales; sponsorships; a vendor hall; and a charity auction on both days offering guests the chance to bid on hundreds of autographed items, Disney memorabilia, and collectibles – including rare and vintage items and original Disney artwork.
