    My 2 year old great nephew just passed away on Friday. My niece & her husband are annual pass holders to Disney & took him there almost every week for his short life. My ? is if Disney has any memorials that can be purchased/trees planted/bricks,

    Oh, Barbara!  I am so very sorry for the tragic loss your family has suffered!  I hope the beautiful memories that you have of your darling nephew will sustain you during the very sad days that you all face as a result of his passing.  How wonderful that he was able to enjoy so much time at the most magical place on earth during his very short time here.  I am sure that his parents will cherish the memories of the many smiles he surely shared with them at Walt Disney World.

    There isn't anything offered right now at any of the Walt Disney World theme parks that would create a lasting memorial for your nephew, but that doesn't mean there aren't things you can do to help create a legacy for him that shows his love of Walt Disney World.  Consider a donation in his name to one of the organizations that provides wish trips for terminally ill children.  You could purchase a paver on the Avenue of Angels at Give Kids the World Village in Kissimmee.  For $200, they will engrave something on the paver to memorialize your nephew, which will then be added to the Avenue of Angels.  The proceeds from the sale of the paver go towards making a dream come true for a sick child.  You could even plant a tree at home in his memory, and add a garden statue from - or wind chimes that will cause you to think of him when you hear them.

    Know that your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
