    A church in Georgia would like to send a family of 7 (mom and 6 boys) to Disney this summer following the recent death of the husband/father of the family. Does Disney have any church discounts? Or any programs that would aid the church in any way?

    Hi Christy, 

    Thank you for reaching out to planDisney with your question. As a church pastor, I’m grateful that this family has a community to support them during this difficult season. What a wonderful gesture to work together to send them to Walt Disney World Resort to be together in such a magical place and have special moments to remember their loved one. 

    Christy, Walt Disney World Resort does not offer any church discounts or aid directly to Guests in this situation. There may be other organizations in your area that do help make such trips possible, and I encourage you to check with other churches, schools, or social workers in your community to explore those possibilities. In the meantime, I can offer some other ideas for how to help make this trip become a reality for this family. 

    First, there are several special offers currently available that might make this trip more in line with the funds available. Alternatively, there may be members of your community who are Disney Vacation Club members who might be willing to use their Vacation Club Points for such a noble cause. 

    Also, Disney Gift Cards are one way to pay for Disney vacations, including Disney Resorts Collection hotels, dining, merchandise and more. Disney Gift Cards are easy for people to give as gifts and are available in a variety of dollar amounts. The individual amounts can be combined on one single card up to $1,000 per card.  Disney Gift Cards can be purchased at and at many local retailers. 

    Christy, I hope that these ideas help your community in your efforts to give this family a much-needed vacation in The Most Magical Place on Earth, and more importantly, let them know that they are loved. As you continue to plan, all of us here at planDisney would be happy to offer more suggestions or answer any questions you may have. 

    Sending my best wishes,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
