Gabriele Gets Goofy in Orlando

Gabriele has always been a fan of all things Disney, so what better wish than to go to Walt Disney World®? Despite her daily battle with a neurological condition, the magic of her favorite mouse helped her enjoy the vacation of a lifetime in Orlando, Florida.

Gabriele and her family stayed in a villa at the Give Kids the World Village and enjoyed time eating at the Gingerbread House restaurant, meeting characters, and trick-or-treating during a special early Halloween event. After spending time at Give Kids the World, Gabriele and her loved ones took on the Walt Disney World®resort. They also had the special opportunity of visiting Universal Studios and SeaWorld, where Gabriele was able to enjoy more rides, feed a dolphin and watch Shamu’s show!

Though Gabriele is limited to her stroller, that didn’t stop her from exploring every inch of the whimsical theme parks. “She liked meeting the characters and riding the rides the most. Meeting Mickey Mouse was the most memorable for her,” says her father. “This wish was perfect.”
