The "Give a Day, Get a Disney Day" promotion started on Jan. 1, and the promotion's website promptly crumpled under the volume of searches from people looking for qualifying volunteer opportunities. The first one million people who sign up on the Disney website and complete a qualifying volunteer task will get a free one-day, one-park ticket to a U.S. Disney theme park.
More than 4,000 people have signed up to give blood in Tampa. A Theme Park Insider reader wrote me about an opportunity he found on the Disney site to disassemble Rose Parade floats.
And at least one other business is hopping on Disney's coat-tails. Four of the Best Western hotels around Disneyland, in Anaheim, California, are offering a third night free after a two-night stay to visitors who present a Certificate of Completion from the Disney volunteer effort.
Have you signed up for a volunteer gig yet? Are you planning to? Tell us what you think of the program, in the comments.Tweet
