CHICAGO, April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --The very notion of what's magical will
take on new meaning in the world's most famous resort destination this
November. For the first time, the Walt Disney World Resort will be the
backdrop to For A Cause, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that orchestrates
multi-day charity walks in vacation destinations that uniquely allow
participants to walk for the charity of their choice.
The Walk The World event, part of the A Walk Around The World – Fundraising
Walking Event series (https://www.awalkaroundtheworld.org ), is a walk-only
fundraiser limited to 50 participants and takes place November 14-18, 2013.
Over the course of three days, walkers will hit the sidewalks and walkways of
the Walt Disney World Resort, averaging more than 10 miles a day, following a
suggested journey through the resort's theme parks and other locations. The
adventure will take them through resorts like Disney's Coronado Springs
Resort, water parks like Disney's Blizzard Beach, and several of the famed
theme parks, including the Magic Kingdom, where walkers will experience all
the sites and attractions along the way, at their leisure. In addition,
everyone will have a chance to enjoy group meals, activities, shows, fireworks
and some special surprises, according to Robert Webber, president of For A
"There are so many die-hard Walt Disney World fans that are going to love the

historical destinations, but this is the first time they'll be given a chance
to visit Cinderella Castle and walk miles throughout a fantasy destination.
It's going to be some serious fun — the Walk will be both magical and
meaningful. If your feet get a little tired, you can just hop on one of the
enchanted rides and take a break!"
The registration fee for Walk The World is $350 per person and includes
lodging at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, group meals, and group theme park
tickets. Single participants will be paired with a roommate, although single
rooms are available for an extra charge. Walkers must be 14+ years old to

at the world's most famous theme park and resort," Webber says.
