Recently, in celebration of 30 years of VoluntEARS (the cast and crew fundraising arm of Disney), passengers and crew on all four Disney Cruise Line ships participated in a single, creative fundraising event. Raising approximately $14,000, the "AquaDucky Derby" sent thousands of rubber ducks sailing through the ships' swimming pools and at–sea water coasters. The event, held to raise funds for Make-A-Wish International, allowed passengers to purchase and decorate their own rubber duck and send it racing through the AquaDuck (on the Dream and Fantasy) or through a course in Goofy's Pool (on the Magic and Wonder).

Disney has been involved with the Make-A-Wish organization for 32 years and has granted 81,000 wishes since then.
