Bert’s Big Adventure is so incredibly proud of the commitment to community that has been built among our families since our organization’s inception in 2002. Our founder, Bert Weiss, likes to say that each year the magical, all-expenses-paid, five-day journey to Walt Disney World is the unofficial initiation into our family and once you’re in, you’re in for life!
