Itinerary

As you arrive in sunny Orlando, Florida, you’ll get acquainted with your guide. Spend the evening strolling around the shopping, dining and entertainment complex at Disney Springs.  

Your first activity will be a volunteer day at Give Kids the World Village. This nonprofit resort and mini-amusement park provides kids who have life-threatening illnesses along with their families cost-free vacations. With a motto of “Happiness inspires hope,” their aim is to help children and families just have a fun time without having to worry about their illnesses or paying for a family getaway. GKTW works in partnership with programs like Make-A-Wish to provide accommodations while kids are at Central Florida attractions such as Walt Disney World, Kennedy Space Center, LegoLand and more.

As a volunteer, you could be scooping ice cream, serving meals in the restaurant, greeting families, helping with rides, assisting with arts and crafts, serving popcorn at movies or helping load families onto the train, along with many more opportunities.

Today you’ll visit Seminole State College, a leader in interior design. Located in Sanford/Lake Mary, it’s about 30 minutes from Orlando. The college’s program is nationally recognized and accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA). Afterward, while you’re in Sanford, check out the plants and animals at the Central Florida Zoo and Botanical Gardens. 

This evening, enjoy a performance by the popular Blue Man Group at Universal CityWalk.
