    Does Disney have anything to "memorialize" a loved one?? (something like the Legacy thing at Epcot or a brick) My grandmother passed away in March and she loved Disney but I don't know if they do something like that.

    Hello, Jen! Thank you so much for coming to visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    I'm so very sorry for the sadness your family is experiencing at the loss of your grandmother. I hope you have many warm and wonderful memories to treasure of times you've enjoyed with her. 

    How wonderful that your grandmother loved Walt Disney World. I think that in and of itself makes her a special person. There are no official ways to memorialize her at Walt Disney World, but there's no reason you can't do something. 

    When my mom passed away, my whole family enjoyed her favorite Disney dining experiences. Seeing a table filled with her favorite Disney foods while we talked about the many trips she took with us was so healing for my daughters. It was a wonderful way to honor my mom.

    Other guests have done things like worn t-shirts with their loved ones photo on them, even making sure to capture the image so they had one last trip "with" their loved one. If you purchase Memory Maker - a Disney PhotoPass Product, you'll have those memories to cherish.

    One thing I have done is purchase a paving stone at Give Kids the World Village. This incredible organization provides accommodations for "wish" kids and their families. These children, facing life threatening illnesses, are treated to their own opportunity to make magical Walt Disney World memories. The paving stones, which make up the Avenue of the Angels at the Village, is a wonderful and lasting way to share your Grandmother's love of Disney.

    Wishing you comfort and healing for your sad heart.
