He’s getting out of Dodge — and going to Disney World.

Disgraced former city corrections officers union chief Norman Seabrook has gotten the green light to take a family trip to the Orlando, Fla., theme park while facing corruption charges in an alleged kickback scandal.

Manhattan federal Judge Andrew Carter signed off on Seabrook’s week-long jaunt on Wednesday, according to court records.

Seabrook has been free on $250,000 bond and prohibited from traveling outside New York and New Jersey without the court’s permission since his arrest in June.

Seabrook and his wife will stay from Saturday to Sept. 4 at Disney’s Saratoga Resort & Spa, a Victorian-style getaway that boasts lakeside views and is just a boat trip away from Disney Springs.

Rooms there start at $330 a night, according to the resort’s website.

Prosecutors did not object to the trip, the filing says.

Seabrook was indicted last month on charges he siphoned $20 million from the Corrections Officers’ Benevolent Association to invest in hedge fund Platinum Partners.

Platinum co-founder Murray Huberfeld was also charged with allegedly paying $60,000 in kickbacks to Seabrook in exchange for the investment.
