Welcome to Dreams Take Flight - Vancouver

Since 1993, Vancouver Dreams Take Flight has flown deserving children from BC to Disneyland. Our goal is to provide the trip of a lifetime once a year to 125 children with physical, mental and social challenges.

Air Canada donates an aircraft for the flight, and with the help of our wonderful national and local sponsors, and the hard work of all of our amazing volunteers, we will able to take another incredible group of kids to Disneyland on Wednesday, October 2nd, 2024, (our 29th year).

With your support, we can continue to give trips of a lifetime to deserving BC children. We raise funds through corporate and private donations, charity golf tournaments, barbecues, weekly raffles and our annual Gala for Dreams.

About Dreams Take Flight

Dreams Take Flight is a 100% volunteer driven registered children’s charity that brings special kids on a whirlwind trip to a magical place. 

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 and there are now eight flights annually, one from Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Halifax.

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.
