Ever since the 1987 Super Bowl ad linking championship sports teams to Disneyland visits, a trip to the popular theme park has been a popular way to celebrate a victory while escaping the everyday.
Thanks to the generosity of the Disney parks, some of the January 26, 2019 Creator Faire volunteers get the same privilege.
Each year, Disney Parks celebrates family volunteering by awarding one-day passes to select nonprofits. What better way to give away four (more or less depending on your immediate family size) of these Parkhopper tickets to Disneyland and California Adventure — and show our deep gratitude — than to draw a name from the list of nearly 100 incredible Creator Faire volunteers?
Volunteers are vital to this extraordinarily complex annual community event! They help with everything from organizing stations of their own to setting up the many rooms of equipment, from guiding students through the activities to cooking delicious food that feeds their busy brains, to cleaning it all up at the end.
By our quick calculations, the 2018 event took more than 65 parent (and grandparent) volunteers to pull off — plus the patience and commitment of dozens of their children before, during, and even after the event during an all-hands-on-deck cleanup.
Last year, Matt Weekley was the lucky winner.
Who will join Super Bowl champs, Miss America, Santa Claus, and Bruce Springsteen in exclaiming “I’m going to Disneyland!” in January 2019?
