  • Commerative Brick

    I know this has probably been addressed thousands of times, but I am REALLY new here and cannot find a back thread about it. I would like to buy a brick for my husband, for him to see on our anniversary trip there. Can anyone tell me how you buy one without being on WDW grounds? Is there a website or phone number to get information? I cannot find anything on the Disney website, but unless it is obvious, I probably couldn't-not a very good technology person. Thanks in advance for any help! Even the littlest thing is great! (Right now, I just have the idea in my head, but I cannot figure out how to put it into motion!)

    I don't believe they sell the bricks anymore.

          You can do it at Shades of Green - you can also "sponsor" a fruit tree there.

          Not much help of you are not staying there. Otherwise as far as I know, there is no way to "leave your name behind" right now.

            You could carve it into the queue for BTMRR, like all the other destructive people.

            Sorry - that was soapbox time. Now back to your regulary scheduled happy thread.

                Have they stopped again? They had more this year, try calling (407) 824-7890 (taken from another website, I haven't tried the number myself).

                The price had gone up a lot, to like $250.00. They started selling them again a few months back, but I don't know if they still are.

                I also will mention that Give Kids the World has bricks that they sell for their village, and those are for a good cause.

                    I second that.

                    Why give $$$ to the Mouse that is almost entirely profit ... and they won't maintain the thing anyway when you can give it to a worthwhile charity?

                      Here is information on the stones for GKTW: http://www.gktw.org/how/paver.asp

                      I do believe they are tax deductible as well.

                      But Disney may still have bricks left, they HAVE been selling them this year.

                        Simply not true. Everytime we've visited they have been re-mortared. Inscription has been re-blacked. Ours is coming up to its tenth year and as far as I can ascertain they intend to keep them where they are for the moment. AS for giving to charity - it depends which one - how much is deducted for administration and whether the end product is seized by corrupt governments. It's my money and I'll "spend" it where I choose - thank you.

                          Give Kids the World is mostly volunteers, and it lets kids with life threatening illnesses go to Disney World (and have a place to stay for a week). Just for those who don't know, very little goes to administration.

                          However, as I mentioned, Disney has sold bricks this year. The phone number I posted should be correct, to buy a brick (though they have about doubled in price since the last time they were for sale).

                          I am glad Disney has made more bricks available, they certainly have plenty of room to put them (all over property if they wanted). They have bricks that went in at the Contemporary Resort in the 90's, I hadn't even realized it. I like the brick program much better than the Leave a Legacy.

                            I just tried the number. The recording says they stopped selling the bricks in July 2000. They say you can leave a message if you have an existing brick (and a question) and they will call you back.

                            Since there are a few people on this thread that insist that Disney is still selling them, can you provide some proof?

                            How do you know they are selling them? Do you know someone who bought one? What number did they call, where did they visit?

                              Leave a message for them. This is your brick, I have read on numerous boards that people have bought bricks this year. I do believe someone also mentioned that they have that recording.

                              I don't need proof, it's not my brick! If you want one, leave a message and see if they call back. You can also Google about it, which is what I did for you to get that number.

                              All I was doing was to let you know that they have been selling them this year. I am not interested in a brick for myself, I was just trying to help you out and let you know there have been bricks. I do not know if they are still selling them.

                              I just found this thread elsewhere:

                              http://www.sunshinerewardsforum.com/...php/t-561.html

                              There were bricks in May, I can't tell if there still are (first they said 20k bricks, then they said only 70). You will have to find out for yourself, that is as much info as I have.
