    Do you know if there is any tickets or discount tickets for Cancer Patients and their families. My nephew wants to go to Disney in the worse way. He will be between Chemo Treatments and they are coming to Orlando.

    Hi Jody,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your request touched my heart.

    If the entire family is coming to spread cheer to your nephew at the Walt Disney World Resort and you plan to book 10 rooms or more, contact Group Reservations at 407-939-1942. We just returned from a group trip and had a few options for purchasing discounted theme park tickets. We had several cast members helping us plan the trip, so we felt incredibly supported!

    If you are bringing a small group, check the Special Offers. Though there may not be a specific discount listed for cancer patients, one of the discounts could be applicable to the dates of your visit. I suggest that you consider booking a Vacation Package with resort hotel, theme park tickets and a dining plan to immerse yourselves in the entire experience. 

    I also called Guest Services at 407-939-2273 to inquire about other possibilities. I spoke with a wonderful cast member who suggested that you call and ask to speak with someone in Community Relations. Just call anytime Monday - Friday between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.

    Jody, many years ago, my niece needed a kidney transplant and the Make-A-Wish® Foundation granted her wish. Those were scary times but she received a new kidney and survived. We are wishing on all the stars for your nephew. Part of the magic of Walt Disney World is that people from all over the world come together to reclaim the joy in life. The Disney Parks Blog shared a story last year that inspired me. Entitled, 19-Year-Old Cancer Survivor Conquers the Disney Princess Half Marathon. I share it with you to spread the hope!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
