The workers, who spent almost 70 days trapped in a mine in Chile, have been invited to spend a week vacationing at Walt Disney World Resort next month.

The complementary stay will include visits to all four theme parks, meet and greets with Disney characters, gift cards and honorary roles in the Main Street, U.S.A. parade.

"The amazing story of these miners captured the attention of the world for demonstrating the true power and resilience of the human spirit," said Disney President and CEO Bob Iger. "We are proud to welcome these courageous men and their families to the Walt Disney World Resort."

The miners and their immediate family members will arrive at the resort on Jan. 27.
