Disney Event

This year our “Purple Day® For Epilepsy Around the World” will blend family fun with important information about epilepsy at every turn. Activities will begin at the Disney’s Contemporary Resort® / Fantasia Ballrooms H-Q, with refreshments to share with our guests – Mickey and Minnie! Other characters will be on hand for photos. There will be happenings for the kiddos and giveaways. A surprise keynote speaker will be on hand to share a story and a bit of wisdom. People and organizations from all over the US will be there with information and resources. The day will end with a visit to Epcot® where we can all watch together as Spaceship Earth turns purple for epilepsy awareness.
