Walt Disney World Castmembers and VoluntEARS are wonderful for the holiday season!
This weekend, our amazing Disney VoluntEARS helped distribute $10,000 in Mickey Mouse plush to children and families at the Kissimmee/Osceola County Chamber of Commerce’s Three Kings’ Day celebration.
The winter holidays are still celebrated for many Christians, as Jan. 6 marks the 12th day of Christmas known as Three Kings’ Day or Epiphany.
Celebrated across the globe in different ways, this holiday commemorates the Three Kings’ (or wise men) following a guiding star to Bethlehem to honor the birth of Jesus and honor him as king.
From Spain to Puerto Rico to many American cities with Spanish speaking populations, Three Kings’ Day (Día de los Reyes or Día de los Reyes Magos) is often honored in various ways.

Celebrate with feasts and parades, gifts and other fun traditions, many families even leave out gifts for the Three Kings’ (and their camels who have traveled a long way to come to their homes). In Mexico, a special bread called “Rosca de Reyes” is baked in an oval shape and made of a sweet dough as part of the festivities.
