How Disney helps reimagine the patient
experience in children’s hospitals
Disney works with children’s hospitals and pediatric places of care around the world, creating distinctly Disney experiences that deliver moments of joy when they’re needed most.
Teams across Disney, including their world-renowned Walt Disney Imagineers, worked with a global network of experts to identify unique experiences Disney could provide to ease the fear and anxiety of a hospital stay.
