Disney Parks Donates Rain Ponchos to Hospitals

****

150,00 rain ponchos being readied for shipment.

Disney Parks donated 150,000 rain ponchos to be used by medical workers fighting the coronavirus along with 100,000 N95 masks to hospitals in Florida, California, and New York.

The Disney Parks rain ponchos are made of heavy duty plastic that doesn’t tear easily.

Rain ponchos that normally help Disney guests enjoy their visit on rainy days will be used by nurses and medical workers fighting the coronavirus.

The ponchos will have either Mickey or Minnie Mouse on the front and back.

Medical workers are in desperate need of personal protective equipment including masks and gowns to protect themselves while working with coronavirus patients. Some medical workers have resorted to using garbage bags over their clothing.

Hospital nurses wearing garbage bags last week when their PPE gowns ran out.

With all of its 11 theme parks closed worldwide, this week Disney donated the 150,000 rain ponchos to MedShare, a humanitarian aid organization, that will distribute the PPE items to hospitals in need in Florida, New York, and California. [04/01/20 Update:  The governor of Florida issued a 30-day Stay-at-Home order for Florida residents this morning, effective midnight Thursday, April 2nd.]

“The idea was inspired by nurses across the country who inventively found that rain ponchos can be an excellent way to protect their clothing and prolong the use of PPE, while also freeing up gowns when needed,” said Disney Parks.

“The COVID-19 pandemic is unlike anything we’ve seen before,” MedShare CEO Charles Redding said. “We have to find ways to pool our resources and work together to help the healthcare workers who are doing their very best to treat patients and contain COVID-19. We appreciate Disney partnering with us to support hospitals and healthcare workers on the front lines.”

These efforts follow the recent donation of more than 270 tons of food to local food banks from Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland ResortDisneyland Paris, and Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa.

Additionally, Disneyland Paris donated more than 100,000 medical supplies, including masks, hygiene caps and protective shoes to the French government for distribution to hospitals in France.

Since mid-March, Disney Parks have provided nearly $3M in in-kind donations benefiting communities around the globe.

Located just past the tables and chairs in the phone charging area, you will find a beautiful garden filled with flowers, greenery, and even a small stream.

Ten of Pascal’s chameleon friends have made this garden their new home. They can be seen lounging about on rocks near the stream, in greenery, and even hidden on nearby buildings.  You’ll need to look very closely to see them all!

Look for 10 of them!

After a few minutes of searching, we were able to find six chameleons hiding in the garden. Next time you’re in Fantasyland, be sure to say hi to Pascal and his friends.

Disney Fun Fact:  Pascal is actually based on a real chameleon, owned by one of the movie’s cast members. The day the directors were trying to find a name for the character, the CM said she named her chameleon Pascal, so they took that name.

HOW TO BE IRISH FOR A DAY

The team at Raglan Road Irish Pub takes the holiday seriously and recently shared their top tips on how to “Celebrate like the Irish”:

  • Please don’t call the holiday “St. Patty’s.” It’s either “St. Patrick’s Day” or “St. Paddy’s.”
  • A shamrock has three leaves…not four – that would be a clover.
  • Americans invented the St. Patrick’s Day parade in 1737 in Boston.
  • Most Irish pubs do a full month’s business on St. Patrick’s Day.
  • Guinness sells 13 million pints on St. Patrick’s Day versus the usual 5 million daily.
  • Green beer is an American invention. Raglan Road does not serve green beer, that would be sacrilege!

Though green beer isn’t on the menu, a full line-up of entertainment is on tap, along with a mighty selection of beers, spirits and craft cocktails served alongside exceptional Irish fare.

Try a flight of Irish beers during the celebration.
