This morning, Walt Disney World Resort and AdventHealth came together to announce the launch of ‘AdventHealth World of Wellness’ – a project aimed at transforming the health and wellness experience of Walt
Disney World® Resort guests. And it sounds AMAZING.

For guests with health care needs ranging from the common cold to a chronic illness, AdventHealth is providing a diverse range of health care services and vacation planning tools to Walt Disney World® Resort guests, both before and during their trips.
