Once again Disney has created magic! The Disney VoluntEARS joined forces with the Central Florida residential community of Golden Oaks in Winter Park, Florida to create the 75th nationwide KaBOOM! playground. For those of you that don’t know much about Disney VoluntEARS, this group is comprised of Resort Cast Members and their families. They contribute their own personal time to make an impact on the community all the while keeping the vision and ideals of the Walt Disney Company. They work on meaningful projects around the globe and most recently, right here in Central Florida.
The latest KaBOOM! playground in Winter Park has everything a magical playground should including swings, new slides and even rock walls! Much like how the Disney Imagineers of the Walt Disney World Resort bring their vision to life in the parks, the Disney VoluntEARS brought their vision to life transforming an empty lot into a beautiful playground. This new place for families to gather gives hundreds of local children a safe place to play. The idea is to create a fun and save environment to cultivate healthy lifestyles right where Disney Cast Members live, work…and now play!
Through the collaboration with Central Florida, Disney has now funded 11 KaBOOM! Playgrounds in the area. But it doesn’t stop there. Disney strives to work with communities around the world. One of Walt Disney‘s most famous quotes reads, “If you can dream it, you can do it.” I personally love that this doesn’t just apply to his theme parks, but to anything Disney can collaborate with to make then entire world just a little more magical! It is definitely something to celebrate!
