Frequently Asked Questions
How do I become a Daily volunteer?
- To become a daily volunteer you must to be 21 years old and able to push a wheel chair for the day at many different parks (must be in good physical shape). You may need to escort children on some rides and help in related duties. You MUST like children!!!
- Daily volunteers need to be in the lobby for check in at 8:00 a.m and usually return to the hotel around 6:00pm except for Monday at the Magic Kingdom when we get back around 7:00pm. You will be asked to fill out a release of liability.
- To volunteer please contact Cindy Waldorf.

How do I become a Weekly Volunteer?
- Per the request of Dreamflight, you need to work as a daily at least one year. This way there is feed back from the group leaders as to how you did. This also gives You a better idea as to what to expect on a daily basis. Weekly volunteers are held to the same standard as to British escorts and are expected to be there for the complete day with the children. You will stay in the same hotel that the children stay in for the whole week so please make plans to be away from home and work for that length of time.
How do I know what group I will be in?
- There is no way to tell what group you may be put into; this depends on the group leaders daily needs. They try to keep volunteers in the same group everyday and each following year. This helps in their planning not ours.
What time do I need arrive?
- Weekly volunteers need to check with their group leaders for instructions. Weeklies go on duty at 7:00 am (6:00 if there is morning swimming involved) and are on duty with the children until bed time (9:00 p.m.).
What do I need to bring with me?
- BRING COMFORTABLE SHOES!! You need money for food and drinks for yourself only. Bring a camera, you will want pictures to remember all the great times and memories. Suggest that you bring a ‘Bum Bag” not a purse or wallet (less hassle for you when helping children).
What will we be doing?
- Going to all the parks; this means Blizzard Beach too. You may need a bathing suit or a change of clothes. Sea World is a get WET day for the kids. We also do Islands Of Adventure and this means roller coasters and getting wet too. Put your fears behind you while with the children; remember this is their dream come true; be willing to do rides and things you yourself wouldn’t do.
- Remember this is about KIDS DREAMS not ours. You are there to help where ever you are needed, not to meet just your wants. Everyone tries to make this a great holiday for all, but first of all the Children’s. A volunteer is just that; it takes a lot to make a dream come true; so be willing to give or don’t volunteer.
- You are not expected to buy anything for the children. They are given a daily allowance to spend on food and what-nots each day. They want all the children to feel special and equal and not some special over others.
