Walk The World," a New Type of Walking Vacation with a Purpose

For A Cause announces Walk The World https://awalkaroundtheworld.org, a new kind of walking vacation that will take place at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, November 14-18, 2013. 

Walk The World combines two great experiences into one, a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort and a walking vacation with a purpose. Event participants can save up to $600.00 by registering with For A Cause, compared to booking travel and vacation components separately.
"You might think walking around any one of the resort's theme parks is more than enough, but there is more to see beyond the theme parks that it's worth a little extra walking. There are miles of sidewalks and pathways waiting to be explored," according to event organizer, Robert Webber. "These are probably the best-maintained walking paths that you will encounter anywhere in the world. Here is your chance to walk along perfect sidewalks with peaceful waterways, beautifully maintained gardens, flowering trees and bushes, and award-winning architecture. Participants have several mileage options each day averaging up to 10 miles per day. Each day's route is unique, taking walkers through a different journey, and they can walk as little or as much as they want."
The program starts on Thursday evening, November 14, 2013 with registration and a group dinner where participants will get to know their fellow walkers and review safe walking tips.

The registration fee for Walk The World is $995.00 per person and includes double occupancy lodging at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, group meals, group transportation, group shows, and group entrance to theme parks. Also included are unique experiences like private fireworks viewing and private meals inside of theme parks before or after operating hours, as well as walking guides, route maps, and airport transfers from the Orlando International Airport (MCO) compliments of Disney's Magical Express. Single participants will be paired with a roommate of the same gender and smoking preference. Single rooms are also available for a nominal charge. Although walkers must be 14+ years old to participate, non-walking family and friends are welcome to share a room with a registered walker, but would be required to follow the group schedule to enjoy savings.
This walking vacation can double as a fundraising walkathon by allowing, but not requiring, participants to choose a charity and try their hand at fundraising. Because the participant has paid all expenses, there is no minimum fundraising requirement and none of the donations they raise will be used to cover their event expenses. Participants can go a step further and turn the walk into a full fledge fundraising walkathon and enjoy a lower registration fee of $350.00, but they will be required to raise a minimum of $1,650.00 in donations for the charity of their choice.
