The Make-A-Wish foundation has been operating for more than 40 years and has been granting wishes to children and their families in nearly 50 countries. Disney has been in partnership with the local non-profit since 1980, and has granted more than 140,000 wishes with 8,000 of those wishes happening at Walt Disney World.

Disney officials said the design of the new specialty license plate will be unveiled at a future date.

Car owners who are interested in purchasing a plate can purchase a $25 presale voucher at their local tax collector or department of motor vehicles office.

Walt Disney World will celebrate its 50th anniversary on Oct. 1, 2021.
