The news this week from the Orlando area and the Walt Disney World Resort is nothing short of heartbreaking. We mourn the lives of those lost. (For information on the stories out of Orlando this week, visit the Orlando Sentinel website here and here.) The PassPorter Team, like so many of you, are struggling to find the right words to express the grief, and the horror felt by those around the world and in the Disney community. 

Members of the Walt Disney World community are planning a "Remembrance" in the Magic Kingdom on Saturday, June 18, 2016 at 11:30 pm. All are welcome. As Lin Manuel Miranda, creator and star of 'Hamilton", said when accepting the Tony award on Sunday night, "And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love."
