Andrew's wish to meet Mickey Mouse at Walt Disney World Resort!

Andrew, five, was diagnosed at birth with a heart condition and had to undergo heart surgery. Andrew loves Mickey Mouse and all the Disney characters. He is also a great Lego builder. His family was very excited for Andrew to have the opportunity for a wish to be granted.

Andrew and his family thought a trip to Disney would be ideal because it has everything a child can dream of! The rides, LEGOLAND, meeting the characters, animals, swimming pools and so much more. In February, the magic began when Andrew and his family were flown to Orlando, Florida to spend an amazing week at Give Kids the World Village and enjoy everything Walt Disney World Resorts have to offer. The family had a fantastic experience filled with beautiful memories. 

"We truly enjoyed our time at Universal Studios and loved all the attention. Give Kids the World treated us like a royal family and there was so much kindness. When you look at your children and you get to spend the full 24/7 with them for eight days, this on its own was fabulous. The night before we left I couldn’t stop crying that's how much it meant for me and my family, even little Andrew said: Mommy I have tears.”

Special thanks to Give Kids the World, Tugo insurance, Sony Canada, Park N Fly for their generous support and making Andrew's wish come true.
