Former Patient, Now Disney Imagineer, Helps Install Artwork at Children’s Hospital

Excuse us while we fill your screen with a dose of goodness! Walt Disney Imagineering has been hard at work transforming your everyday standard hospital walls with something that can brighten the day for many children and their families. Check out the sweet video below of the installation of artwork at Children’s Hospital of Orange County, and the special connection a Disney Imagineer has to the project.


As shared by Disney: “Katie Barnes, a senior set decorator at Walt Disney Imagineering, jumped at the chance to work on art direction and installation of interactive Disney artwork designed to ease the stress for children and families at children’s hospitals around the country. When she found out her first project would be at CHOC (Children’s Hospital of Orange County) — the hospital where she spent much of her own childhood — she knew it was meant to be. See some of the Disney artwork installations at CHOC in action.”


We love it! Check out the full story as shared via DisneyParksBlog. Way to go Disney Imagineers… keep up the good work!

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.
