Four-year-old Rose from Key West knows that fairy tales come true. Her dearest wish took her on a magical journey to Walt Disney World® Resort to become a princess, ride some roller coasters and meet her favorite Disney friends.
Once in Orlando, Rose and her family stayed at the fantastic Give Kids The World Village, a special resort designed solely for wish children with amenities fit for royalty. One truly majestic moment was watching the star she decorated be lifted to its permanent home on the ceiling in the Castle of Miracles.
At the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, Rose’s fairy godmother pronounced her a princess. With a wave of her wand, Rose was transformed with a bejeweled tiara, gorgeous gown and glittering makeup. Other regal experiences included a visit to Cinderella’s Castle and the chance to shadow Belle from “Beauty and the Beast” for more than an hour. The pint-sized princess sought out every roller coaster and water ride. She rode any roller coaster that she was tall enough to go on and did so with her hands way up high.
At the end of her weeklong vacation, Rose asked her parents, “Why do we have to go home?” Her mother replied, “So other children can have their wishes granted.”
“Because of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, our family enjoyed a fun-filled, worry-free kid’s dream come true. During Rosie’s wish week, leukemia, chemotherapy and finances receded to the back of our minds.” –Rose, her mom and her dad
