Volunteering as a family is such a fun and rewarding experience!! This weekend we were “Game Keepers” at the Faith and Family Festival at the Central Florida Fairgrounds, and we had an amazing time!
The festival was a one day event on October 25th, and it is an annual event so if you have a Disney family vacation planned for this time next year and you’re able to attend please try to!
Admission was $20 a person, and you could purchase an all day ride pass. Lines were virtually non existent, and admission included all you could play games (there were 50 game booths), and TONS of free candy!
The kids rated that volunteer position as an 11 in a 1-10 experience … which means they loved it!
We arrived before our shift so that we could enjoy some of the rides and games the festival had to offer, then ended up taking a double shift that night instead of playing!
We had a couple of hours of free time and the kids asked if we could see if they needed more help because volunteering was more fun than riding the rides. That made me very happy and proud, and I was super excited when they said yes, they needed us!
For the first shift Mahnara and I worked in a disk tossing game booth, and Trevon and Zarius worked in a shooting booth.
