In the mood for a little free Disney fun? Roll up your sleeves and don your mouse ears. Disneyland’s “Give a Day, Get a Disney Day” program will give 1 million volunteers a free day to play in any Disney park in Anaheim or Orlando in 2010. Disney is working with the HandsOn Network, a clearinghouse for volunteer opportunities, to connect people with projects at 70,000 agencies, including Habitat for Humanity and county food banks. As soon as the volunteers’ work is done and they’ve got the HandsOn OK, they get a certificate good for admission to Disneyland or Disneyworld. Volunteers must register online with Disney – and kids ages 6-17 can join in the fun and earn a free ticket, as long as they do their volunteer work with a grown-up helper.
