All you wanted to know about the give a day, get a day promotion

Have you heard of the give a day, get a day promotion from Disney Parks? In case you haven't here is the 411 on this fabulous promotion.

Disney Parks is giving away free admission to one of the theme parks of the Disneyland Resort  or one of the parks of the Walt Disney World Resort when you sign up and complete a day of volunteer service with a participating organization. Ticket numbers are limited, so you will want to sign up and volunteer as soon as possible.

The first thing you need to do is head here to sign up. You pre-register and search for a volunteer experience that inspires you or is the right fit for your family. Local schools are participating and organizations such as your city's paint the day or Save Our Beach cleanup.

Once you sign up, you are ready to volunteer. Once you volunteer, the participating organization will let the Disney Parks know  when you've completed your day of service. Once the organization has verified your service with the park you will receive an email with your voucher.

It's a wonderful opportunity for service with your family and also be able to earn a fun day at the park. For additional information head over here. Have fun volunteering!

Captain EO returns

Captain Eo returns for a limited engagement to Disneyland, this Tuesday, February 23rd. It's exciting news to have this attraction back. I can't wait to watch this again! However, Captain EO is not recommended for the little ones. It's loud and there are some scary images. This attraction is definitely recommended for older children and adults.

From the official Disney Parks Blog: "While it’s not possible to replicate some special effects elements from the original presentation, it will boast a new 70mm print of the film, and it will sound better than ever thanks to acoustic enhancements made to the theater since the film last played there in 1997." There are no plans for it to return to any other Disney park, at this point.

Rumor has it that the moving floor system from HISTA will be implemented. No word on whether the lasers, fog or pinwheel will be back too. For now, the run is open-ended with no set ending date set for the movie.

Here is the original commercial from 1986 to enjoy:
