For over 35 years Make-A-Wish and The Walt Disney Company have worked together to grant over 100,000 Disney-related wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses. This year, as part of its 25th Anniversary celebrations, the Disney Vacation Club joined forces with Disney Theatrical's Aladdin with an exclusive DVC performance of the hit Broadway show which saw Tony Award Winner James Monroe Iglehart granting an extra special wish as he announced that the Disney Vacation Club was making a $25,000 donation to Make-A-Wish!
At the event DVC Senior Vice President and General Manager Ken Potrock said "Wishes are granted every night at Aladdin. For more than three decades, Disney and Make-A-Wish America have also joined together to grant thousands of wishes. And, in honor of 25 magical years of the Disney Vacation Club, we're proud to continue our support of granting wishes, giving children the emotional and physical support to fight their illness."
Make-A-Wish is a fantastic cause and it's truly heart warming to see the Disney Vacation Club and Aladdin coming together to support it and help make children's wishes come true.
