Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Central Florida finds, creates, and supports programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and families. Our cornerstone program, the Ronald McDonald House®, provides a home away from home for families with children receiving treatment at hospitals and medical facilities in Orlando. Before the Ronald McDonald Houses, parents were sleeping in their cars or in chairs in the waiting room, eating out of vending machines, or bearing the expense of impersonal hotel rooms. There are three Ronald McDonald Houses in Orlando - one on the campus of Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, one on the campus of Florida Hospital for Children and one on the campus of Nemours Children's Hospital. Each year, about 2,000 families stay with us to be close to their critically ill children.
For more information on ways to help, please call (407) 206-0957 or visit www.ronaldmcdonaldhouseorlando.org.
We are happy to support the Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Central Florida and the work they do in our community by donating a portion of the gate proceeds to their great organization.
We love our pets as much as you do, but due to an increasing number of incidents involving pets we are implementing a "No Pets Allowed" rule at all of our festivals. Thank you for understanding.
