If there is one thing I love, it’s the stories of Disney’s VoluntEARS and all the good they do in communities around the world!
About 250 children and their caregivers visited the Shanghai Disney Resort last week as a part of the Resort’s “Share the Joy” initiative, which supports children and communities in need.
A special ceremony, lead by resort leaders and Disney VoluntEARS, welcomed everyone to the park. The ceremony also included leaders from the Shanghai Children’s Foundation, a local non-government organization dedicated to caring for children in need.
Not only did the children get to experience all that Shanghai Disneyland has to offer as far as world-class attractions and entertainment, they also go an exclusive look at Chinese New Year offerings such as a performance of Shanghai Swing and visits with “God of Fortune” Pluto in Mickey Avenue.
They were then treated to a special Chinese New Year lunch in Wandering Moon Restaurant, where Disney VoluntEARS hosted traditional Chinese New Year activities with the children. Plus the main mouse himself, Mickey, and Minnie, made a surprise appearance.
Everyone went home with special gifts selected from the resort’s New Year merchandise collection.
