Walk The World, a Three-Day Charity Walk at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, a First of its Kind

April 29, 2013 Walt Disney Company, Walt Disney World 2 Comments

The very notion of what’s magical will take on new meaning in the world’s most famous resort destination this November. For the first time, the Walt Disney World Resort will be the backdrop to For A Cause, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that orchestrates multi-day charity walks in vacation destinations that uniquely allow participants to walk for the charity of their choice.

A Walk Around the World Charity

A Walk Around the World Charity

The Walk The World event, part of the A Walk Around The World – Fundraising Walking Event series (awalkaroundtheworld.org ), is a walk-only fundraiser limited to 50 participants and takes place November 14-18, 2013. Over the course of three days, walkers will hit the sidewalks and walkways of the Walt Disney World Resort, averaging more than 10 miles a day, following a suggested journey through the resort’s theme parks and other locations. The adventure will take them through resorts like Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, water parks like Disney’s Blizzard Beach, and several of the famed theme parks, including the Magic Kingdom, where walkers will experience all the sites and attractions along the way, at their leisure. In addition, everyone will have a chance to enjoy group meals, activities, shows, fireworks and some special surprises, according to Robert Webber , president of For A Cause.

“There are so many die-hard Walt Disney World fans that are going to love the idea of visiting their favorite theme park while walking to raise money for their favorite charity,” Webber says.

“In years past, A Walk Around The World participants have traveled to castles in Europe and trekked miles throughout historical destinations, but this is the first time they’ll be given a chance to visit Cinderella Castle and walk miles throughout a fantasy destination. It’s going to be some serious fun — the Walk will be both magical and meaningful. If your feet get a little tired, you can just hop on one of the enchanted rides and take a break!”

The registration fee for Walk The World is $350 per person and includes lodging at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, group meals, and group theme park tickets. Single participants will be paired with a roommate, although single rooms are available for an extra charge. Walkers must be 14+ years old to participate. There is a minimum fundraising requirement for the charity of the participant’s choice.

“As with all For A Cause events, Walk The World will put participants up in comfortable accommodations, offer excellent food, and an unforgettable experience — this time made possible by the extraordinary setting and fanfare at the world’s most famous theme park and resort,” Webber says.

A complete list of frequently asked questions pertaining to registration, lodging, and walk logistics is available at: https://awalkaroundtheworld.org/FAQ.html. The event’s main website is: https://awalkaroundtheworld.org/Home_Page.html.
