Orlando, Florida continues to heal from the aftermath of the most deadly mass shooting in U.S. history. All across the U.S patrons have been sending their empathy, and thousands of donations have been made to support the victim’s loved ones.

In a Disney Parks blog post, it was stated that Disney has donated $1 million to a fund established by Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer to help those affected by the shooting. Such a beautiful gesture from such a lovely organization.

“We are heartbroken by this tragedy and hope our commitment will help those in the community affected by this senseless act,” said Bob Chapek, chairman, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. “With 74,000 Cast Members who call Orlando home, we mourn the loss of the victims and offer our condolences to their families, friends and loved ones.”

Through an effort led by the City of Orlando and the Central Florida Hotel & Lodging Association, Walt Disney World Resort is also providing complimentary accommodations for the families and friends of the victims.

For those who want to help the victims of this tragedy, the fund Disney donated to is called OneOrlando. More information can be found here. Be sure to check out our ‘Nightly Nerd: Response to Orlando’ video here for some additional information on donating as well.

 Our hearts are with everyone impacted by this horrific event.
