The Sunshine Flyer is committed to working with nonprofits with a focus on children and their families. This year, our partnership with Make-A-Wish® Foundation flourished as we raised almost $300k and granted 30 life changing wishes.

Helping Make-A-Wish® Bring Hope to Children

Early this year, a partnership was created with Make-A-Wish® Northern and Central Florida. To honor of the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World® and the hope and joy that wishes bring to children with critical illness, the Sunshine Flyer pledged to donate 50% of all revenue during the first 50 days of operation.  

A wish is not a fleeting gift – it’s a carefully planned journey, designed to complement a child’s medical treatment, and give them the hope, strength and joy they need to fight their illness. Together we provided 30 transformational wishes for children with critical illness and raised almost $300,000 to stay in the local community for children to have, meet, go, and be.

The Northern and Central Florida Make-A-Wish® chapter is a top destination across the U.S. and the world. Over 8,000 children visit the theme parks, beaches, SeaWorld, and resorts. The Sunshine Flyer experience is designed to kickstart a vacation the moment you step foot in Florida with a fun, unique travel experience. 

“It was important that we could see first-hand how Make-A-Wish® works with children and how it supports the family with everything they have to go through as well.” – Tony Glibkowski, Vice President, at Sunshine Flyer’s event honoring the company’s partnership with Make-A-Wish®. 

We are built with a motor to move non-profit missions further. On behalf of the Sunshine Flyer, thank you for traveling with us and helping children forget about their illness for one magical day.

All Make-A-Wish® children and families travel with complimentary service from the Sunshine Flyer for Disney wishes indefinitely.
