Disney Concepts and Experiences

Child life specialist and young patient

At Children’s National Hospital, we focus on your child's emotional health as well as their physical health. We know that being in a hospital can be a scary and often confusing time for children (and their families). That is why we have teamed up with Disney to bring a little joy into our patients’ experiences. Learn about this collaboration and the surprises in store for our patients and families.

Disney’s Work in Children’s Hospitals

Disney is committed to delivering joy and comfort to children and their families. 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.
