The 33 miners who spent more than two months trapped underground in a Chilean mine are getting a free trip to Walt Disney World in the southeastern U.S. city of Orlando, Florida.

The miners and their families will spend a week at the resort, courtesy of Disney head Bob Iger. Their trip will place at the end of January. It includes not only lodging and admission to the popular resort, but also spending money.

Iger said the Disney Company is proud to welcome "these courageous men" and their families to Disney World.

The miners, who became trapped in early August, were rescued in October. Their ordeal captivated people all over the world, and their rescue was shown live on worldwide TV.
