Give Kids The World Village in Florida has announced that they will reopen on January 17th, and once again continue their mission of "spreading joy and happiness that inspires hope for critically ill children and their families.  The Village has been shut down to wish guests since March, when they had to close due to the pandemic.  That means that a long ten months will have passed without families being treated to a wonderful break from their lives in the funtastic Florida sun.  The Village notes that some 6,000 children had to have their wish trips postponed because of the pandemic, and they're looking forward to seeing each and every one of them as they reopen.

The Village will take on a phased reopening plan, starting with much smaller amounts of families and gradually expand their operations toward a goal of full reopening.  With everyone's safety in mind, they have a COVID-19 safety plan in place, created in consultation with infectious disease experts at Nemours Children's Hospital.

Most recently, and actually still on-going, Give Kids The World Village has held Night of a Million Lights, a spectacular holiday light presentation that has attracted many visitors and helped the property raise a lot of funds.  It will run through January 3rd, so there's still time if you are local to check out the amazing displays!

Also, with all the challenges of this year the Village can use help more than ever, so please keep them in mind this holiday season!
