As a part of the 25th DVC Anniversary celebration, Disney Vacation Club members had the chance recently to enjoy a members-only performance of Disney’s Aladdin on Broadway, at the Amsterdam theater in NYC.

At the conclusion of the performance last night, Disney Vacation Club Senior Vice President and General Manager Ken Potrock announced that in honor of its 25th anniversary, Disney Vacation Club would help grant the wishes of some very brave children.

With a little help from the magic maker himself, Genie, played by Tony Award-winning actor James Monroe Iglehart, Ken announced that Disney Vacation Club is contributing $25,000 to Make-A-Wish, a nonprofit organization dedicated to granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. This contribution will help impact the lives of even more children and their families.


Disney has a long-standing relationship with Make-A-Wish. For the past 35 years, Make-A-Wish and Disney have granted more than 100,000 Disney-related wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses. Disney-themed wishes have included magical experiences at the Disney theme parks, voyages aboard Disney Cruise Line and even special backstage visits to television and movie sets.

What do you think of DVC’s generous contribution?
