Coins from Cinderella’s Wishing Well at Magic Kingdom and other fountains and waterways throughout Walt Disney World are collected periodically and donated to Make-A-Wish and their Give Kids The World Village.

Give Kids The World Village was established in 1986 as a place for wish kids and their families to stay and play when visiting Walt Disney World Resort and other Orlando destinations.

“We’ve had an amazing relationship with Walt Disney World Resort for more than 35 years, and this donation on top of the recent $500,000 grant will help us to continue making dreams come true for our very special wish families who visit the Village,” said Pam Landwirth, President and CEO of Give Kids The World Village.

Walt Disney World Ambassador Ali Manion shared a video about the donation on Instagram and wrote on Disney Parks Blog, “This organization holds a special place in my heart as my cousin, Caleb, experienced the magic of the Village during his Make-A-Wish trip to Walt Disney World Resort in 1996. Knowing just how special this trip was for Caleb and his family inspired me to volunteer at the Village myself, and I’ll never forget coming across Caleb’s wishing star in the Castle of Miracles on my first day as a VoluntEAR – it’s comforting to know his memory lives on, and his contagious, bubbly energy and bravery continues to inspire me every day!”
