Learn more about how your family can use our services so you can focus on your child's health and well-being.

Eligibility

To stay at one of our Houses, families must have a child (up to age 21) who is receiving medical care at an Orlando area hospital or medical center.

Although families are asked to make a donation of $20 per night while staying with us, no one is ever turned away due to inability to contribute.

Who can stay at the Houses?

Due to the high demand for our services and maximum occupancy restrictions, our accommodations can only be offered to those family members involved in the daily care of the patient. Most guest rooms are limited to three adults.

How do I request a room for my family?

All families who wish to stay at one of our Houses are required to complete our online Guest Application and Background Check Disclosure.

Once the application has been processed and approved, one of our staff members will contact you with instructions on how to complete the online background check. After the online background check results have been processed, a staff member will contact you to discuss room availability.

Please note that completing this application does not guarantee you and your family a room at the Ronald McDonald House.

What if the House is full?

Please complete the online application and submit as soon as possible.

If your application is approved and the House is full, you will be added to a waiting list. A staff member will contact you if a room becomes available for you.
