All Wishes

Emily is the sweetest 7-year-old with the biggest smile. Her wish was to see Mickey and Minnie, her two favorite characters. Emily along with her mom and dad and two siblings went to Disney, Universal and Sea World over Christmas 2022 and were thrilled to see how each park was decorated for the holiday - what a Christmas gift it was to Emily! Emily has Quad Spastic CP and her only form of communication is through sign language. Her father, Mike, told us that every day she would sign repeatedly "MORE" all day, every day. Emily is mobility dependent on a wheelchair and was so excited that it didn't stop her from riding rides. She met her favorite characters multiple times, and they even came to the GKTW village where the family stayed for a special meet and greet. The parents said the trip was absolutely amazing, but that little Emily had the leaving Disney blues when they arrived home.
