Earlier today, the Disneyland Resort announced that as its Disneyland Resort’s Diamond Celebration draws to a close and it begins its 61st year in Anaheim, it has introduced a ticket donation program for sixth grade students in Anaheim, recognizing student actions to improve their homes, schools or communities.
Titled ‘Happiest Class on Earth: Anaheim 6th Graders Making a Difference,’ Disneyland has committed to offer every sixth grade student in Anaheim Elementary schools the opportunity to receive a Disneyland Resort Park Hopper ticket after completing a project that enriches their home, school or community. The program, which will continue for at least the next ten years, will also be extended to schools located outside the city of Anaheim whose student body consists of at least 50% who live in Anaheim.
Each school will be given a suggested list of actions that students can take individually or as a class, but schools are welcome to determine their own good works to address their needs. Teachers will document the actions and submit to the Disneyland Resort to receive their tickets. Schools will be encouraged to visit Disneyland Resort as a class field trip. The Disneyland Resort will also provide schools with post-field trip activities to use in the classroom, to make the visit educational.
