“The Disneyland Resort is focused on giving back to the community throughout the year. The holiday season makes it a particularly special time to extend our resources to those in need. Thanks to the generosity of our Cast Members, the Disneyland Resort is helping to fulfill numerous wishes in our community and for the brave men and women serving our country overseas,” said Ed Grier, president of Disneyland Resort.
