Give Kids the World

Give Kids the World is the magical wonderland where most of our wish kids and families stay when traveling to the Walt Disney World® Resort or other Orlando-based themed parks for their wish. Give Kids the World gives our Make-A-Wish® chapter more than $1,700,000 a year in in-kind donations covering accommodations and park tickets.

When Give Kids the World Village opened its doors in 1989, it had just 16 villas. Over the years, it has grown to a 70-acre resort with more than 140 villas and has hosted over 138,000 families from 75 different countries. These families working with Make-A-Wish chapters and other wish granting organizations are now treated to all the amenities that we have heard about for years, and so much more. Now, there is a miniature golf course, horseback riding, a brand new ZERO entry swimming pool and water play area and pizza delivered right to the villas. The list goes on and on...
