As part of Disney’s ongoing quest to inspire life-long learning, the Walt Disney Resort and Disney Cast Members recently donated a whopping 3.1 million school supplies, including 13,000 backpacks. The recipients of this awesome contribution were students in Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Lake and Polk counties in Florida. Each year Disney donates supplies, financial support in the form of grants, recognizes achievement in the schools and Disney program. In addition, it is commonplace in Central Florida to have a Disney Cast Member visit a classroom to share their expertise with the students. So, if you ever question where your money is going, you will be happy to know that after the costs of running a huge resort, Disney gives back to the community in an even bigger, more magical way!
