I know. And I hate to be a cynic, but I am sure there are people who signed up to volunteer at a future date. Will they still do it, even though there isn't a free Disney ticket to be had afterwards? It would be nice, but I'm thinking there will be a LOT of no-shows. I'm feeling a bit sorry for the organizations that needed volunteers.

They are not counting people who 'signed-up' only people who 'showed-up'.

From what I read, it appears that those who have signed up are still eligible. Of course, if they don't show, they don't get the voucher. I'm not sure how they will handle the vouchers that would have gone to the no-shows. They've already disabled the search for an event.

This is a quote from the Orlando Sentinel:

Disney said 1 million people had either volunteered or committed to volunteer just 10 weeks after it launched the “Give a Day, Get a Disney Day” campaign. The company said it subsequently closed registration for the promotion.

Okay, I'm officially about to freak out!
Breathe, breathe.

I'm going on the 26th. We planned just a short weekend, and my son, after I had it booked and paid for, insisted that we also go to Epcot. He said he'd volunteer to do it. So we did - we both volunteered - he's 8 and is extremely proud of the work he did - we got our vouchers, changed our plans, we've got reservations for dinner at Epcot, the whole shebang.

We've got our passes - they're going to be honored, right?

According to the Orlando Sentinel...yes! Even people who haven't volunteered yet, but are scheduled to do so will receive their vouchers. I think the vouchers are good through Oct 31 or something (that was in the article, too).

Phew!
I could buy tickets if I had to, but my son would be devastated. He's really proud of the work he did.
