Tickets for the events are on sale now, and proceeds generated by ticket sales, sponsorships, a vendor hall, and charity auction will benefit Give Kids The World Village non-profit organization that provides magical week-long, cost-free vacations for critically ill children and their families.

 The charity auction offers attendees the chance to bid on hundreds of autographed items, plus Disney memorabilia and collectibles, including rare and vintage items and original Disney artwork.

“Children with critical illnesses face countless appointments, treatments, and hospital stays, and they are often told “No” due to the limitations of their illness. Give Kids The World offers wish children and their families a week of “Yes” where they can forget their worries, experience joy, and spend priceless time together creating unforgettable memories,” said Pamela Landwirth, Give Kids The World president and CEO. “We are grateful to our tremendous partners at Walt Disney World, and to the many sponsors, donors, and participants who are making Dis Con possible for the benefit of the precious families we serve.”

An exclusive After Hours Party sponsored by Yogibo will take place at Walt Disney World’s Epcot theme park on October 1, 2022, the park’s 40th anniversary.

The separately-ticketed party runs from 10:30 p.m.-midnight and includes admission to Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure; exclusive entertainment at the France, Morocco, and United Kingdom pavilions; rare character meet and greets; and enhanced dessert offerings.
