Guest Assistance Passes
Long lines at the theme parks? Don’t worry, thanks to our wonderful park partners you can experience expedited wait times. Universal Orlando Resort offers a Guest Assistance Pass, Walt Disney World offers a Wishes Pass, at SeaWorld you just need to show your GKTW button and at LEGOLAND you get a Heroes Pass. All you have to do is present your pass at the attraction entrance and enjoy shorter wait times at some of Central Florida’s best theme parks.
Capture the Memories
At the Village there are so many photos opportunities, from character meet-and-greets to our nightly parties. We have dedicated volunteers ready to take photos of the whole family all around the Village. At the end of your trip you we’ll give you all the photos our volunteer photographers have taken so be sure to capture every moment. Another special experience the whole family can enjoy takes place at the Memory Keepers Studio. Here, you can visit our private studio and record a video sharing all of your favorite wish trip memories. This experience even includes a complimentary DVD to take home so you can hold on to that moment for years to come.
Since the sunshine state is, well, sunny year-round, remember to wear sunscreen and pack a swimsuit. Looking for a way to cool off during the week? Try the splash pad at the Village or visit some of the water rides offered at nearby theme parks like Splash Mountain at Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Jurassic Park River Adventure at Universal’s Islands of Adventure or Infinity Falls at SeaWorld Orlando.
This week is all about creating meaningful moments with the whole family. From ice cream all day to parties every night, there’s always something to do at the Village. Learn more about what you can expect during your week at Give Kids The World here.
No matter what activities you choose to do during your stay, you will enjoy the magic of the Village and the best of the Central Florida theme parks.
