Herosim

The Chilean miners rescued after 69 days trapped underground and their families plus four of the rescuers (and their families, too) came to WDW in January for an all-expenses paid 6-night, 7-day visit. They also got a $500 gift card per family. And a photo album per family. And a "heroes' welcome".

Local News: Chilean Miners Going to WDW



I am very glad these guys survived their ordeal. But heroes?
What did they do that was heroic? Survive? Survival is instinctual. Heroism is something much more.

Just so ya' know:
If you wanted to come to WDW, a basic 7-day  Magic-Your-Way ticket starts at $247. Resort stay, dining, gift card and photo album are NOT included.
