Daughter Honors Her Mom’s Memory with Gift To Pass Out To Strangers at Walt Disney World

If you’re visiting Walt Disney World this coming week, you may just spot a woman passing out Disney collectible pins and decals. Janelle Dzwilewsk is honoring her Mom, Marion Dzwilewski, in a special way.



As shared by the OrlandoSentinel: Marion Dzwilewski’s diagnoses with ALS in 2018 was dire since no cure exists for the progressive neurodegenerative disease that breaks down the body’s muscles. Disney World was a place of fantasy, complete with a castle and princesses. Marion’s problems disappeared there. So to her daughter, the theme park was the perfect place to honor her mom, who died in January.

Daughter, Janelle, devised a tribute. She amassed a collection of 75 Disney collectible trader pins and more than 400 Disney decals to pass out for free to strangers on their upcoming vacation that starts Monday.

She attached messages with her mother’s nickname, Dee, and about ALS awareness so people could learn more about the disease, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, that about 5,000 people are diagnosed with every year.

“There’s no other way I could share of paying respect to my mom. This is the only thing I could really think of,” Janelle said. “It just seems like the right thing to do to spread awareness in her favorite place.”

About Mike/ Jamie

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
