During 2009, Disney World Theme Parks offered guests free admission on their birthdays. For 2010, they are replacing this popular promotion with “Give a Day, Get a Disney Day.” This Muppet-themed promotion allows United States, including Puerto Rico, and Canadian residents who volunteer in their communities to a FREE one day Disney ticket.

To get the free ticket, you’ll have to sign up for a designated volunteer activity through Disney’s website. Once you complete the activity, you’ll be given instruction on how to download your ticket voucher, which you will them redeem at the park’s ticket windows.

The volunteer opportunities are being managed by HandsOn Network.

The blackout days for these free tickets are:
At Walt Disney World: March 29 – April 8 and July 4, 2010

Also, Disney is limiting the number of tickets awarded in the program, which will end on Dec. 15, 2010.

You must be at least 18 years of age to sign up, and you may sign-up up to a maximum of 8 additional members of your same household. Children must be at least 6 years of age to volunteer under this program and receive a theme park ticket. Children ages 6-17 must be accompanied by an adult when volunteering. Other age restrictions may apply to certain eligible volunteer opportunities.

Guests who present a valid multi-day ticket or Annual Pass or Passport may choose from one of the following three options instead of receiving the free 1-day, 1-park ticket:

– Disney’s Special FASTPASS cards for certain attractions for you and up to 5 additional members of your party.
– A collectible Ear Hat figurine with exclusive trading pins.
– Donate your free ticket to a non-profit organization designated by Disney Parks.
