Disney Children’s Hospitals Initiative
The Walt Disney Company is committed to delivering comfort and inspiration to children facing serious illness. This commitment dates back to Walt Disney himself, who would visit with children in hospitals, often accompanied by Disney characters and animators.
In 2018, Disney built on this legacy by announcing a $100 million commitment to help reimagine the patient journey in children’s hospitals.
When families have a child facing serious illness, they describe the journey as one where they face moments of high anxiety and stress, and feel alone.
Disney is using the best of its storytelling, beloved characters and creativity to create a more personal and comforting experience for children.
