Celebrating the Power of a Disney Wish! The Walt Disney Company Donates $1 Million to Make-A-Wish

What is more powerful
than a wish coming true? How about thousands of wishes coming true!

For more than 40 years,
Disney and Make-A-Wish have worked together to do just that – granting more
than 145,000 Disney-inspired wishes for wish kids with critical illnesses. And
today, on World Wish Day, our company reinforced its commitment to creating
even more life-changing moments for wish kids and their families around the
world as the Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company Bob Chapek
announced a donation of $1 million to Make-A-Wish. This donation is earmarked
to reach even more Make-A-Wish kids from all backgrounds, supporting
Disney’s ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion.

This donation was announced as part of the show-stopping grand reveal of Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship, the Disney Wish, that will join the fleet in the summer of 2022.

Filled with character
appearances, musical performances and state-of-the-art technology, the
half-hour virtual event revealed some of the most innovative and iconic spaces
that guests will experience aboard the Disney Wish.

Make-A-Wish alumni from the United States and Canada virtually took part in the one-of-a-kind production

The very name of the
Disney Wish evokes the spirit and optimism of a wish come true, so what better
way to highlight this theme than invite Make-A-Wish to be part of the
production magic! During the show’s stirring finale, images of incredible
Make-A-Wish alumni surrounded Disney on Broadway star and International
Performing Artist Syndee Winters during her performance of “When You Wish Upon
a Star.” These children and young adults represent the thousands who have had
Disney Cruise Line wishes granted throughout the last 20 years.

And to help us
celebrate the power of wishes, three Make-A-Wish families shared their stories
with us. For these families, the wish of a Disney cruise gave them something
far greater than they ever could’ve imagined: newfound confidence, strength,
family togetherness, new friendships, and most importantly, hope. We invite you
to take a few minutes to hear about their journey and see the joy – and lasting
impact – that a wish can bring.
