Patients at Xuzhou Children’s Hospital can now enjoy a brand-new Disney Fun House courtesy of Shanghai Disney Resort.
The Disney-themed playroom comes as part of the resort’s celebration of Mickey Mouse’s birthday and is the continuation of the company’s mission to spread happiness to local communities across the country.
As part of Shanghai Disney Resort’s overall commitment to children in need and local communities across the country, Disney VoluntEARS will make regular trips to the new Disney Fun House, helping to spread the resort’s happiness by lifting children’s spirits through fun activities, and games.
To mark the playroom’s opening, a special opening ceremony was held at Xuzhou Children’s Hospital with Mickey Mouse making a surprise appearance, alongside leaders from Shanghai Disney Resort and Xuzhou Children’s Hospital, as well as Disney VoluntEARS.
Originating in 2016 as a donation of $3.1 million USD (RMB 20 million) by The Walt Disney Company to celebrate the grand opening of Shanghai Disney Resort, the Disney Fun House project has created fun Disney-themed playrooms in children’s hospitals in Beijing, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Nanjing, Changsha and Kunming.
Throughout the course of the five-year program, 50 hospitals across the country of China will eventually be equipped with Disney-themed play areas.
