Purple Day® For Epilepsy Awareness Around The World

March 10


“Purple Day® For Epilepsy Awareness Around The World”

At The Walt Disney® World Resort!

Children under 18 FREE – Adults Just $15 

Last year the first ever “Purple Day® For Epilepsy Awareness Around The World” was such a huge success we are doing it again to celebrate Purple Day® 2019 with another magical day for families to get together, share stories, learn, and form lasting bonds at the Walt Disney World® Resorts in Orlando, Florida!  Event space is limited so register early!  Last year we had to turn people away!

“Purple Day® For Epilepsy Awareness Around the World”, at Walt Disney® World Resorts, will blend family fun with important information about epilepsy.  Activities will begin at Disney’s Contemporary Resort® / Fantasia Ballrooms H-Q with refreshments, Mickey and Minnie (and few other characters) for your photos, meet Cassidy Megan (Founder of Purple Day®), and, a presentation on what is new in the world of epilepsy by a medical expert.

People just like you will come from all over the U.S. and the world to make friends and have some fun as we spread epilepsy awareness!  There will be information and resources on epilepsy for you as well.  The day will end together at Epcot® to watch as we light Spaceship Earth® PURPLE for Epilepsy Awareness and get a group picture for us to spread around the world!

We hope you will join us by following the instructions below and completing the registration form as we celebrate Purple Day® For Epilepsy Awareness Around the World 2019!
