Epilepsy Awareness Day at Disneyland Resort 2014 will take place at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California.
Epilepsy Awareness Day at Disneyland Resort 2014 will take place on November 6, 2014 during normal park operating hours. We will be outside the park for a meet-and-greet at 9am, and the park will be open from 10am-8pm for a day full of fun, photos, and fellowship!
This event is for people of all ages with Epilepsy, their families and friends, and anyone else whose life has been touched by Epilepsy, as well as anyone who wants to raise funds or awareness for Epilepsy.
Over 3,000 epilepsy awareness supports including families, doctors from private practice (co-founder Diane Stein MD) and teaching hospitals / epilepsy centers (such as fron UCLA, CHLA and NYU), leaders of many non-profit groups (such as FACES, Dravet.org, TACA), and leaders from industries associated with epilepsy research and treatment.
Entrance to the park on Epilepsy Awareness Day will cost the same as a regular adult single-day, single-park ticket: $92. However, when tickets are purchased through our webstore, $5 from your purchase goes to one of our non-profit Epilepsy-related partner organizations; you get to pick which one!
The purchase of your ticket includes a full day entrance to Disneyland’s Magic Kingdom park (that’s the main park. Entrance to California Adventures is not included, sorry!), as well as a Participant Pack which contains a limited edition purple event shirt featuring a unique Mickey Mouse logo specific to our event, and an event bag full of other goodies and information!
Yes! All Annual Passes are valid the day of the event! The day is made strong by the attendance of as many people as possible! To help support the event, you can purchase your Participant Pack which contains a limited edition purple event shirt featuring a unique Mickey Mouse logo specific to our event and an event bag by visiting our Store Page!
In addition to a fun-filled day at Disneyland, the purchase of every ticket or Participant Pack will include a $5 donation to one of the participating non-profit epilepsy-related groups. You can choose your organization when you check out! You will also be part of the amazing professional photos from the day and be one of the thousands to share these images to help raise awareness! Your family will have the opportunity to met others with the same condition or family circumstances, to chat with doctors and others who work with epilepsy – all while having a great day of inclusion on a day with very low typical park attendance... Which means not waiting for rides and no crowds – except for us, of course!

The Participant Pack is a really neat SWAG Bag (Stuff We Always Get) of goodies prepared just for Epilepsy Awareness Day at Disneyland Resort 2014! It contains a limited edition Epilepsy Awareness Day purple T-shirt and tote bag which can only be obtained by purchasing the participant pack. They will not be sold anywhere else! In addition, the Participant Pack will be full of all sorts of helpful information about Epilepsy. Do you need one to participate? Absolutely not. However, by purchasing the pack, you will be helping to increase our funds which will go to support epilepsy research and awareness. Plus, we think you’ll look super fly in that purple shirt ;)
When purchasing Participant Packs, you will only need one per family, and can purchase additional shirts for each other member. Don't worry, we'll remind you about this in the Store.
Dr. Diane Stein, MD and Brad Levy of AskDrStein.com saw a devision in the epilepsy community, and a chance to make a difference by joining the communities with a special day at their local amusement park, Disneyland! With a number of patient’s parents working at Disneyland, they saw an amazing opportunity, and worked up the courage to ask for a day at Disneyland to make the epilepsy community’s own! The rest is history (and a lot of hard work)!
There are several very nice hotels on the Disneyland property, as well as in the surrounding area. We’ve been very busy making this event happen, and are doing our best to make some deals available with some of the local hotels. If we are able to arrange any specials, we'll let you know here on the site or on our Facebook page. However, in the meantime you can find great deals checking out some of the travel sites, or checking with your travel agent, you’ll definitely be able to find a great deal on a hotel nearby the park!
