Giselle's wish to go to Walt Disney World

“ She enjoyed everything from getting done up, to meeting the princesses, to even getting to be a part of a show. ”


- Giselle's mother

With the wave of a magic wand, 8-year-old Giselle, who has an immunodeficiency disorder, was transformed into a princess while on her wish to go to Walt Disney World® Resort. Her mother said, “She enjoyed everything
from getting done up, to meeting the princesses, to even getting to be a part of a show.”

Giselle, who is from Coral Springs, visited Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Park, Disney’s Hollywood StudiosTM, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, but her favorite part was visiting the Magic Kingdom® and SeaWorld. She loved her princess makeover and meeting her fellow princesses and aquatic friends.

Giselle’s mother said the most memorable time was spent at the Give Kids The World Village, a royal resort designed solely for wish families. It was magical when Giselle’s personal star was placed on the ceiling in the Castle of Miracles. It was a fairy tale vacation that Giselle and her family will never forget. Her mother said, “Just seeing her being able to do things that normal kids do and actually enjoy it was the highlight. Instead of focusing on doctor’s appointments, the focus was just on her having fun. The whole experience was amazing.”
