    to Disney, Sea World and Wet and Wild

    Walt Disney World said this afternoon that it has decided to offer free admission to travelers stuck in Orlando, as flights to and from Europe continue to be canceled because of an erupting volcano in Iceland.

    Disney said it will offer one-day park hoppers on both Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. The complimentary passes will also include admission to Disney’s two water parks.

    Guests seeking the ticket will have to show a canceled plane ticket or expired boarding pass and a photo ID. Disney says it will also waive its $14-per-day parking charge.

    Disney follows SeaWorld Orlando, which began offering free tickets to stranded travelers on Sunday.


    The International Drive water park Wet ‘n Wild is also offering free admission.

    Way to go Disney! You know some people are throwing their toys out of the cot because when they were stranded due to 9/11 they didn't get anything and people should think themselves lucky for being stranded in Orlando! I can't print my response!

    Oh for goodness sake - are they really?

    Some people!

    I think this is a good thing - I love going on holiday as much as anyone but I think it would be so awful to be stranded like that! (and yes 9/11 was pretty bad too - it's not a competition!)
    Next trip - Bali! (March 2015)

    This is good news. Being stuck away from home with no real return date is no fun where ever you are but hopefully a day in a park or water park will make it better.

    Being stranded in the US is problematic enough. There are many other people stranded in places that are not quite as easy to manage. :(

    Disney is following the lead here, not doing something of its own volition.

    I've also heard that there is some level of falsification of required documents going on. I really hope that is not true.
