Gianni meets her royal court

Gianni's wish to go to Walt Disney World

“ It was a very wonderful experience. Gianni hasn’t forgotten about it – she talks about it all the time. ”


- Gianni's Mom

Five-year-old Gianni had her heart set on becoming a princess after hearing about the magic and beauty of her favorite fairy tales. Upon the arrival of her wish day, Gianni was whisked away to Walt Disney World® where she was taken to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Placed in the caring hands of her fairy godmother-in-training, her wish came true as she received the royal treatment and was transformed into a princess from head to toe.

The entire trip was a truly magical occasion. According to her wish granter Mary, "Everything for her wish went beautifully." Gianni and her family ventured to the theme parks including the Magic Kingdom® where they enjoyed watching the parades and getting to meet the characters. Gianni also had lunch with the Disney princesses at the Akershus Restaurant in Epcot®. They doted on the newest member of the royal court, hugging her, posing for photos and signing autographs. Gianni took so many pictures that she had to get a second scrapbook!

During their 6-night stay in Orlando, she and her family made themselves at home at Give Kids The World Village, a resort reserved only for wish families, where Gianni indulged in all-you-can-eat ice cream, tasting every flavor. With her family beside her and the theme parks that surrounded her each day was a chance for a brand new fairy tale for Princess Gianni.

Her mother said, "It was a very wonderful experience. Gianni hasn’t forgotten about it – she talks about it all the time. We all had an amazing time.”
