Requests for Donations

Disney Cruise Line is proud to focus its community outreach efforts on making a difference in the lives of children and improving the environment in our ports of call.

As a key component of our efforts to support nonprofit organizations, Disney Cruise Line is pleased to consider charitable contributions to organizations operating in the Bahamian and Caribbean port communities that we visit.

Please note, due to the popularity of Disney Cruise Line we are not able to offer cruise donations to nonprofit organizations.  Additionally, we are not able to offer complimentary hotel stays at the Walt Disney World® Resort.

Please note the following information on our donation program:
