Have Fun and Make a Difference

Universal’s Wish vacation packages are a great way to have fun and make a difference. The new partnership benefits a local children’s charity, Give Kids the World.

The charity makes it possible for families of children with life-threatening illnesses to enjoy a week long Universal vacation. It gives them an opportunity to immerse themselves in fun with seven unforgettable days of fun.

You’ll greet Wish families and help pose them perfectly for photos and assist with line control while others are waiting to take photos.
  • La-Ti-Da Spa: Volunteers for the La-Ti-Da Spa must be 16 years of age or older and will help with makeovers. This includes face-painting, nails, hand massage, airbrush tattoos, and makeup. You’ll greet Wish families, sign guests in, clean the spa, and report maintenance issues.
