Sometimes when you wish upon a star, you end up in the happiest place on Earth! Eleven-year-old Henry, who battles a hematologic disorder, wished to go to Walt Disney World® with his family. Henry arrived in Orlando, Florida and stayed in a villa at the Give Kids the World Village where he was able to party with princesses, take part in a winter wonderland, and delight in an all-you-can-eat ice cream parlor! At Epcot®, Henry rode Soarin’, met Stitch, and watched an exciting show starring Mickey Mouse and his pals. He also visited Universal Studios and SeaWorld, where he especially liked riding Transformers™: The Ride-3D and watching a show starring Shamu, the killer whale! “He enjoyed meeting with different types of characters, going on different rides and seeing animals the most,” says his mother. “Getting to meet Santa in August was very memorable for him.”
