Disney for Kids

Disney for Kids broadens the horizons of children and teens in the Dorchester area by sending them on an all-expenses paid trip to the Orlando theme parks.  Disney for Kids has sent more than 3,000 kids on the trip to date.

What is Disney for Kids?

Each August since 1992, with the exception of 2020, Disney for Kids has sent Dorchester-area kids on all expenses paid trip to the Orlando theme parks.  More than 3,000 kids have been on the trip to date.

Who are the Kids?

The kids and teens chosen to participate in the Disney trip have proven themselves to be leaders through their excellent school attendance and effort, as well as their extra-curricular activities. Most of the attendees hail from Dorchester and would not typically have an opportunity to visit Walt Disney World and Universal Studios Florida.

Why is Disney for Kids Important?

A trip to Walt Disney World and Universal Studios Florida is not a necessity, but for kids who have never been on a plane or stayed in a hotel, it is life changing. By gaining independence, making new friends, and visiting the Happiest Place on Earth, kids’ horizons are broadened. Most of all, the kids get to just be kids. Their days in Disney and Universal are filled with awe and laughter.
