We were scheduled for one oppertunity and got turned down a few days after getting confirmed. The they asked us to work this summer, and we will be, but afraid this may happen we did a different oppertunity for the vouchers. Glad we did, we have had our vouchers for some time. I not only just saw the ad, but also an ad for a show with some of the Volunteers visiting Disney. I suspect hey will do something for the rest of the year.

I got this today:
"On March 3rd Disney announced that they are nearing the limit of 1 million free tickets. Therefore to secure a Disney ticket you must complete the
registration process ASAP."

We already did ours with a different organization, but I am surprised how fast they went!

1 million times each ticket's value is one heck of an investment from Diz. I am sure that not all will be actually used. Just like Gift Cards, many folks lose them or forget about them. Still even if only 850,000 of those get used it is quite a commitment by Diz. Any numbers ever come out about how many people got a free day on their Bday?

I just told a friend about GAD yesterday and she was so excited. I told her they were getting close to running out, so unless she took me seriously she will be out of luck.

I was pretty sure they would run out very early, so I did my volunteer work the first of February, and printed my vouchers on the 4th.

I would have never thought they would go that quickly if I didn't come on the Dis.

Did you know that Disunplugged and DISboards are co-owned, affiliated and managed by the same people? The DISUnplugged podcast and blog grew out of the boards. They are not competition.

Thanks for posting this info. I had been waiting to hear back from a second volunteer opportunity before completing my registration. But after reading this post last night, I went ahead and completed my registration with the first organization. Glad I got in before the million was up!

Hi BlueFairy,

It's good to learn new things every day. I had no idea they were affiliated.

Thanks

Just because you are registered doesn't guarantee a ticket. You must complete your volunteer work first, then the tickets! So, work fast!

Thanks for this info...we are collecting school supplies for Childrens Chance. I thought once you registered and were confirmed, you were all set to receive a ticket once you did the work, regardless of whether you did it immediately or in a month. Is that not the case? If no, we'd better get crackin'!

Once you register and receive your confirmation VOP email you are all set and it does guarantee you a voucher. You do not have to do your volunteer opportunity immediately. Just make sure you have registered and received the confirmation email.

I believe service must be completed prior to getting your tix, you are not guaranteed or that wouldn't be fair to people who sign up then don't complete. This is from the FAQs on the Disney website.

Subject to these terms and conditions, tickets may be obtained under this program by (1) signing up for an eligible volunteer opportunity in 2010 at a participating organization from this site and completing such volunteer service, or (2) signing up with HON, with Southwest Airlines or though the Disney VoluntEARS program to participate in a volunteer activity that is later designated by Disney as a volunteer activity conducted in conjunction with the “Give a Day. Get a Disney Day.” Launch or Tour and actually participating in and completing such activity, or (3) receiving and accepting an invitation from HON to participate in a volunteer activity that is later designated by Disney as a volunteer activity conducted in conjunction with the “Give a Day. Get a Disney Day.” Launch or Tour and actually participating in and completing such activity.

You are correct. As long as your volunteer opportunity is registered with the Hands On Network, you're being counted as part of the million and you can do your volunteering at a later date.
