Programs to Promote the Positive Development of Children
Disney Dreamers Experience

Tokyo Disney Resort's

The Disney Dreamers Experience, a program that started in 2015 for fifth- and sixth-graders at elementary school, aims to provide participants with an enjoyable opportunity to interact and share experiences with inspirational Cast Members—who are themselves driven by an unwavering commitment to their dreams—and to think about their own aspirations.
During FY 2018, the program was held five times—in June, July, August and December 2018 and January 2019—for a total of 117 children nationwide.
The children’s comments included, “It was great to have an opportunity to think about realizing my dream,” and the parents offered feedback such as, “My son seems to have gained a solid understanding of what he needs to do to achieve his dream,” and “My daughter’s eyes were shining with enthusiasm in the hope of experiencing many things to find her own dream.”

Programs to Support Children
The OLC Group Children’s Smile Fund

In July 2010, the OLC Group established the Children’s Smile Fund, a community action program focused on helping children, who are integral to our business. Through this program, we act upon the OLC Group’s Policy on Community Action Programs and do our part in supporting children who face various hardships and challenges.

 

With this fund, we collect charitable contributions that are made by our employees on a voluntary basis either as a fraction (of 99 yen or less) of their monthly pay checks or bonuses or as an optional number of 100-yen units. The employees who contribute are asked to select a group to receive their donations from five designated charities.

 

The collected funds are donated to the selected charities twice a year, at which time Oriental Land will match the contributions made by our employees and donate a matching gift to each of our chosen charities, so that, by acting with our employees, we can help children in need throughout the world.
