Wish-Granting Programs

Filed in: Community

The Walt Disney Company is proud to work with children’s wish-granting organizations around the world to make  wishes come true for more than 8,000 children with life-threatening medical conditions each year.

Disney-themed wishes continue to be the most popular requests, including Disney Cruise Line vacations, visits to Disney Parks and Resorts, meeting Disney Characters, attending sporting events and visiting television & movie sets to interact with a favorite Disney star.

Due to the large number of requests we receive, we are unable to provide  Disney Cruise Line vacation packages or offer discounts on Disney cruise vacations to individuals.  It is recommended that families reach out directly to one of the nearly 250 wish-granting organizations we support around the world.

To locate a wish-granting organization in your community, please contact Compassion Partners at (407) 396-5320.

Disney’s long history of wish granting began when Walt Disney hosted children from around the world for the opening of Disneyland® Park and continued when The Walt Disney Company partnered with the newly-launched Make-A-Wish® Foundation to grant the Foundation’s first “wish” – a trip to Disneyland® Park  in 1980.
