Against the backdrop of a world-record sculpture of canned goods at Epcot last Thursday, Disney Parks officials announced a major milestone with its Give a Day, Get a Disney Day program.
Since the program’s launch only six weeks ago, more than 600,000 people in the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada have volunteered or signed up for volunteer projects in their communities, announced Tom Staggs, the new chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. The program’s limit is one million.
Disney is holding a private event tomorrow at Epcot to “Celebrate Volunteers.” Some celebrities and Muppets will be in attendance. Celebrate Volunteers will also attempt to break a world record, but they’re not saying which one just yet.
At 2:30 p.m., the Muppets will lead a CANvoy Box Truck parade from the U.K. Pavillion towards Future World and around to the China Pavillion. Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato are also expected to give a concert later in the evening, possibly on the Fountain Stage.
Although the event is not open to regular guests of the park. You may be able to see some of the happenings from the open areas. But if you can’t make it to Epcot, you can watch a live announcement of the record breaking attempt beginning at 9:58 a.m. at www.celebratevolunteers.com.
We’ll also be covering all of the events. You can follow our updates on our Twitter (@attractions) and Facebook accounts, and check back here after the events for photos and video. We’ll also be covering Disney’s “What’s New, What’s Next Media Presentation” tonight.
Celebrate Volunteers is part of Disney’s 2010 Give a Day, Get a Disney Day promotion.
