2021 Kidd's Kids Trip: Update
Disney World is happening November 18th – 22nd, and we are THRILLED these deserving families will get to have this magical experience!
The health and safety of our Kidd’s Kids families and staff and volunteers is always our number one priority, and we have an amazing medical team on our board of directors who have been advising us since the beginning of the pandemic. In order to ensure everyone’s health and safety, the trip will look a bit different this year. Our medical team has created a set of COVID-19 guidelines and protocols that ALL trip participants will need to follow. They have also thought of every potential situation that could arise and have plans in place to address anything that may happen.
The group attending the trip will be much smaller than in years past. Those attending will be the 21 selected families, medical volunteers, and Kidd’s Kids staff. By keeping our group small, it helps to limit number of people who will be in close contact with the families. We are bummed the Kidd Kraddick Morning Show cast will not be attending, but they understand and agree with the board of directors’ decision that this is best for our group.
The Kidd’s Kids trip to Walt All 21 families are SO excited for the trip, and each one of the Kidd’s Kids’ physicians has had to sign off on them being able to travel. Our head physician, Dr. Dan Guzman, has personally talked to each family to make sure they are comfortable traveling. If they were not comfortable traveling this year, they were giving the option to defer their trip until 2022. For more information about the guidelines and protocols the medical team is requiring, check out the interview with Dr. Dan Guzman. Dr. Guzman is an ER physician at Cook Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth, TX, he is also a Kidd’s Kids board member and has been the lead Kidd’s Kids physician for over 10 years.
