Making a World of Difference for 50 Years

At Walt Disney World Resort we are honored to be part of the Central Florida community, a place we have called home since Oct 1, 1971.

Fifty years have brought many changes to our community and to our company but one thing that hasn’t changed is our desire to create a positive impact. We believe our community is at its best when we collaborate as volunteers, neighbors and friends.

We hope to continue to serve as a beacon of hope and happiness, bringing the magic of Disney to our guests and children and families across our theme parks, resorts, and community.

We invite you to explore how we continue investing in our communities and create a brighter future for all who live, work and play in our region.

Our Cast

Our company, leaders and Cast Members show up as a force for good, from giving back through volunteering to making significant financial and non-financial investments in causes that make a difference every day in the lives of those around us.

Throughout the 50th Anniversary celebration, they are continuing to bring magic to life across Walt Disney World Resort and throughout our communities, creating unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime.
