Florida drivers: The most magical license plate on earth just got a fresh new look!
Rolling out starting this week in local county tax collector’s offices and license plate agencies (DMVs) throughout Florida, our newly redesigned Walt Disney World specialty license plate will continue to directly benefit Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida, helping grant even more wishes for children facing critical illnesses and their families. It’s a perfect way to add a little more pixie dust to your car while supporting a great cause.
We first introduced a Disney World specialty license plate design during our 50th Anniversary celebration, and just recently, we hit a big milestone: over $2 million raised for this Make-A-Wish chapter through these license plate sales.
“Disney is our largest wish granter in the world, and they know just how important it is to create joy and hope for children and families who need it most,” said Anne Cuba, President & CEO, Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida. “This new license plate is the latest way we are making big impacts for wish families in Florida, and I can’t wait to see it hit the roads soon as even more Florida drivers join us in making wishes come true.”

How to purchase the Walt Disney World Florida specialty license plate for others
Did you know you can also make a little magic for a loved one by purchasing a specialty license plate gift certificate for a motor vehicle registrant? Gift certificates for specialty license plates are available through local State of Florida DMVs or County Tax Collector’s Offices.
Once you’ve purchased your gift certificate, you’ll be given a receipt and a credit will be issued in the name of the person you are gifting the certificate to, which they can then redeem when purchasing their specialty license plate. Please note that they must be a Florida resident and do not have to present the gift certificate to redeem the credit, just proper identification (i.e. Florida driver’s license or ID card).
Disney has been granting wishes alongside Make-A-Wish for more than 40 years, and I’m so excited to see this pixie-dusted design roll out onto roadways as we continue supporting this inspiring mission together. Now, I’m off to get my new license plate!
