Florida Children's Hospital and Disney Unite to Create Magical Pediatric Hospital
Date:9/19/2007

ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In a sea of streamers this morning, the most famous mouse in the world helped celebrate a $10 million contribution to Florida Children's Hospital from Walt Disney World and Disney Worldwide Outreach. With the drop of a 100-foot banner from the 11- story hospital, The Walt Disney Company and Florida Children's Hospital revealed a promise to the community and laid the foundation for the "Children's Hospital of the Future."

While The Walt Disney Company has long supported children's hospitals both locally and around the world, Florida Children's Hospital will become the first hospital in history to bear the Disney name. The official name of the hospital will be announced at a later date.

"This contribution is part of our ongoing commitment to making dreams come true for the children of Central Florida," said Meg Crofton, president of Walt Disney World Resort. "Even during uncertain times, children want and need to play, to exercise their imaginations, and to dream. At Disney, we thrive on that kind of imaginative energy, and we hope to bring some of that same spirit to this special place that will provide care for the children of our community."

During the ceremony this morning, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, as well as a former 10-year-old patient of the hospital and his mother, zoomed in on a 1920s Cadillac from the "Stars and Motor Cars" parade at Disney-MGM Studios to help Florida Hospital and Disney cement their partnership. Mickey and Minnie, officials from both organizations, and special guests placed their hands in cement to symbolize the start of construction on the site at Florida Children's Hospital.

"Florida Children's Hospital has been caring for the children of Central Florida for almost 100 years," said Lars Houmann, president of Florida Hospital, which runs Florida Children's Hospital. "A few miles from here, Disney has been equally passionate about making dreams come true
