    Regarding healthcare HEROES discounts, are Respiratory Therapists included in that group? They are not specifically listed.

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Patricia. It looks like you'll be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort next week! How exciting. There's no place I'd rather be, that's for sure. 

     I'd like to start by saying a big THANK YOU for the important work you're doing. My son was hospitalized with a respiratory infection when he was a baby, and I had such appreciation for the Respiratory Therapists that came into our room for his therapy several times a day. In the time that we was admitted, he was his happiest when Respiratory Therapists were in the room because they offered such comfort and relief for his little body. I get teary-eyed just thinking about it! Again, you have my gratitude!

     I think you're asking about the First Responders and Teachers appreciation discount available at Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels. Though the offer does not specify Respiratory Therapists, I'm quite sure that your position would qualify for the discount because it does include support staff. That said, my understanding is that particular offer needed to be booked by July 10, 2021, so it's no longer available. If you booked it prior to that date, that's great! Just be prepared to show your appropriate supporting ID upon check-in.

     If you weren't able to book that offer, not to fret! I'm very pleased to tell you that the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel and the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel offer a Medical Personnel Appreciation Rate. For more information on this offer, visit the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin website and click on the Special Offers tab. 

     Be sure to review the Know Before You Go section of the Walt Disney World Resort website before your arrival next week. It has lots of important information about the health and safety measures that are being taken in and out of the theme parks. 

     I hope this was helpful, Patricia. I'm wishing you a magical Disney vacation - you certainly deserve it!
