Shanghai Disney Resort has opened the Disney Fun House at Xuzhou Children’s Hospital in celebration of Mickey Mouse’s 90th birthday.

  • The Disney Fun House is a brand new Disney-themed playroom for the patients of the children’s hospital.
  • 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.
  • Disney VoluntEARS will make regular trips to the new Disney Fun House, helping to lift the patients’ spirits with fun activities and games.
  • The Disney Fun House project began in 2016 with 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 project has since led to the opening of Disney-themed playrooms in children’s hospitals in Beijing, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Nanjing, Changsha and Kunming.
  • The program will ultimately open these playrooms in 50 hospitals across the country over the course of five years.
