It seems as though certain stories do get fantasyland “happily ever afters” – in the
case of the 33 Chilean miners who were trapped nearly 2,300 feet under the Earth
for a total of 69 days, their “happily ever after” will enjoy a storybook start at Walt
Starting on January 27th and extending through February 2nd, the rescued miners,
the rescuers themselves, and their families will all enjoy a complementary vacation
at Walt Disney World. The plans include meeting all of the Walt Disney World cast,
visiting all four theme parks, and even serving as honorary Grand Martials of the
Main Street USA parade that takes place in the Magic Kingdom.
Bob Iger, the President and CEO of Walt Disney, couldn’t be happier to receive his
heroic guests at the theme park. “The amazing story of these miners captured the
attention of the world for demonstrating the true power and resilience of the human
spirit. We are proud to welcome these courageous men and their families to the
Walt Disney World Resort.”
Disney chefs are in the planning stages of a Chilean feast, which will be served as a
welcome dinner to the guests and be attended by a host of Disney characters.
In addition to all of the other enjoyable activities that all Walt Disney World guests
enjoy while visiting the theme parks and staying on the grounds, the Chilean guests
will also receive a 500 dollar gift card per family, a group photo with everybody in
front of Cinderella’s castle, and photo albums commemorating the visit.
