Walt Disney World Provides 40,000 Disney Books to Central Florida

On May 4, Walt Disney World Resort placed 40,000 new and classic Disney-themed books into the hands of the Central Florida community during the second annual First Book Family Festival.

The no-cost shopping experience allowed educators to select up to 50 books, while children and families were able to select up to five books per child. The books, which were donated by Disney Worldwide Publishing, represented both classic and new Disney tales that appeal to readers of a variety of ages.

More than 100 Disney VoluntEARS spent hours sorting and organizing the thousands of books by age and genre. They also assisted event attendees in finding perfect-fit books for their needs, helping to provide the resources needed for in-home experiences where families can explore their imaginations together and cultivate a lifelong love of imaginative storytelling.

This unique experience was made possible through Disney’s partnership with First Book, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing new books to educators and organizations serving children from low-income families.

For more than 80 years, Disney books have brought children and parents together, sparking imaginations across the globe. The Walt Disney Company has a long-standing relationship with First Book, through which more than 67 million Disney-themed books have been donated to children in need.
