The Orlando Sentinel’s Daily Disney is reporting several happenings that make them think that Disney’s “Give a Day. Get a Disney Day.” volunteer promotion will end soon.
For example, at the recent Celebrate Volunteers event, Tom Staggs, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, mentioned that 600,000 of the slated 1 million free Disney park tickets were already spoken for.
Now, the HandsOn Network, which has partnered with Disney to match volunteers with volunteer opportunities, has sent an email to organization coordinators saying that it expects the program to end “very soon.”
A point of emphasis in the e-mail: “Only volunteers who have completed the registration and signed up for a specific date and time to volunteer before the program ends will get their vouchers for a Disney theme park ticket once their service has been verified.”
Disney has stayed relatively quiet about whether or not the million volunteers cut-off will be extended, but they have said that they’ll further discuss the matter once the million-ticket goal has been reached.
