The Walt Disney Company isn’t the only company raising big bucks for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Another company has raised quite a bit for the foundation, too. That company is the Sunshine Flyer, which recently got into the business of shuttling Disney World guests to and from the Orlando International Airport after Disney suspended its Magical Express service.
The new motorcoach service, with its buses made to look like trains, has only been in business for a little over a month, but the company announced that it’s already managed to raise $300,000 for Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida. The Sunshine Flyer believes this to be enough to grant 30 wishes for children.
The company was launched in partnership with Transportation Management Services, Academy Bus, and Empire Coach Line. When it started service, the Sunshine Flyer committed to donating 50% of all of its revenue from its first 50,000 passengers to Make-A-Wish. The company also announced that all Make-A-Wish children and their families will get free service from the Sunshine Flyer indefinitely for their Disney wishes.
“As we near the end of our first 50 days of service, we could not be more thankful for the overwhelming customer response we’ve received. We’re proud to transform some of that excitement into Make-A-Wish, which is such an impactful organization,” said Frank Sherman, CEO of Transportation Management Services. “In launching the Sunshine Flyer, we knew how important it was that we give back to the Orlando community. Make-A-Wish Northern and Central Florida is the perfect partner for us, and we are honored to support them in continuing to make a difference in the lives of children, families, and communities throughout the region.”
If you’re looking for transportation on the Sunshine Flyer to Disney World from the Orlando Airport, you can book tickets on the company’s website. Tickets are $17 per adult and $12.50 per child each way. Note, though, that tickets must be booked at least four days in advance.
