Under a renewed alliance announced today, AdventHealth will become the Official Health Care Provider at Walt Disney World Resort, as well as the Official Virtual Health Care Provider at Walt Disney World Resort.

AdventHealth has had a relationship with the Walt Disney World Resort for more than two decades, and these enhanced resources will expand upon the organizations’ longstanding alliance.

“The health and well-being of our guests as they enjoy a visit to Walt Disney World is very important to us,” said Jeff Vahle, President, Walt Disney World Resort. “This enhanced relationship allows for access to AdventHealth’s services, as needed, should our guests have health care questions both before or during their vacation.”

Through the first-of-its-kind “AdventHealth World of Wellness,” AdventHealth will create an enhanced experience for Walt Disney World Resort guests that will make it easier for those who have pre-existing health conditions to plan their vacations and for guests to receive care during their vacations.

Today, AdventHealth also announces it will build an emergency room located at Flamingo Crossings Town Center, which will be staffed by a comprehensive clinical team including board-certified emergency physicians and emergency nurses. The design of the facility and team member training will bring an enhanced patient experience for those who need emergency care.

“AdventHealth and Walt Disney World Resort have enjoyed a longstanding relationship and we are excited to launch this pioneering initiative, which will allow Resort guests to plan and customize their vacation around their unique health needs,” said Terry Shaw, President and CEO of AdventHealth. “Guests can experience the Walt Disney World Resort with the confidence of knowing they are supported by AdventHealth’s world-class clinical team who is dedicated to providing whole-person, compassionate care to every patient we serve.”

In addition :

AdventHealth will create a health care ecosystem that Walt Disney World Resort guests can access as they plan their vacations. New online planning tools around health and wellness and a dedicated care experience team at AdventHealth will help meet many needs guests might have throughout their stay, such as assistance with doctor’s appointments, urgent care services, and medical equipment or prescription delivery to Walt Disney World Resort hotels. Some elements are now available while others will be phased in over time.

Walt Disney World Resort guests will have facilitated access to AdventHealth Virtual Care, AdventHealth’s telemedicine service. Guests will be just a few clicks away from being treated by an AdventHealth physician via their computers, tablets or smart phones.

Additionally, building on the current Disney touches at the Walt Disney Pavilion at AdventHealth for Children, the organizations will explore bringing AdventHealth patients and their families additional welcoming enhancements at AdventHealth for Children and other AdventHealth pediatric locations in Florida.

Oh, I was thinking the cheese would be used in New Fantasyland where the Beast would be dancing with Belle. And, the cheese would be their new daughter, Baby Belle. I'll show myself out.

So, since there will now be full time doctors on Disney property. One can finally be declared deceased by a doctor there now.

Actually, Bob only approves of swiss cheese because he admires how the holes make people pay the same for less.

Thank goodness. I was worried that I wouldn't be purchasing the same snack cheese which Bob Chapek personally approves of.

If it isn’t, then that giant Babybel in the middle of Woody’s Lunch Box is going to be pretty out of place.

I'd love it if the bolded line above could mean an upcoming announcement about future RunDisney races?

Why would you care seeing you're vegan?

But is Baby Belle still the official snack cheese of WDW?

You say that like this isn’t something that has been happening for decades. Casa de Fritos, Monsanto House of the Future, the entirety of EPCOT Center. Sponsorship deals have been a part of Disney parks since the very beginning. If anything they are less prevalent today than they were years ago.

Wonders Building turned into an educational pavilion battling obesity ( a key demographic that comes to the parks )

As someone who lives in the Orlando area and not only uses AdventHealth for their Primary, but has also visited the local E.R., this is definitely a big plus.

While it's nice to see TWDC basically whore themselves out for sponsorship, I think the only pressing question we all want to know is if Baby Belle is still the official snack cheese of WDW.
