Our planned departure is now Wednesday, October 7, 2020 with the information session on Saturday, September 12. Any changes to this will be communicated to you. Alternatively, please continue to monitor our website dreamstakeflight.ca
We are still in the process of collecting passenger information as if the flight were still leaving in May. If we have asked you for further information, please continue to work on it and forward it as soon as possible.

The Dreams Take Flight Executive Team
Dreams Take Flight Toronto flies children who may not normally have the opportunity to; from Ontario to Disney World in Orlando, Florida. In 1989, since it’s start in Toronto; the charity has flown hundreds of special children to spend one fun-filled day at Magic Kingdom theme park. In 2020, this will mark our 31st anniversary. Some well deserving children will be on board for a special, once-in-a-life trip for the day to Disney World!
Each year, Air Canada, through the Air Canada Foundation, donates an aircraft for the flight. Dedicated volunteers from within & outside of the airline community work tirelessly year round to make each flight a success.
The generosity of individuals & groups touches hearts & changes lives. With your support, we can give more Ontario children; who are experiencing the greater challenges in life this magical trip. Every gift of kindness gives children joy, hope for their future & begins to open the idea of possibilities for them; where they once thought were none. We raise funds through corporate and private donations, charity golf tournaments, raffles and our annual gala.
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”
About Dreams Take Flight
Dreams Take Flight stretches children’s minds. As poet Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote, “One’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.”
In 1989, several Air Canada employees in Toronto planned a trip-of-a-lifetime. They flew 70 special needs children on a DC-9 aircraft to Walt Disney World in Florida.
By 1997, the Dreams Take Flight charity had expanded across Canada.
For a very long and exciting day, deserving children live an adventure in a world-renowned theme park in California or Florida. All expenses paid—thanks to sponsors and volunteers.
When they land back home, their minds are stretched to new dimensions. They see new possibilities.
