Dimitri's wish to go to Legoland and Walt Disney World® Resort!

Seven-year-old Dimitri has a form of cancer called Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis. When wish granters met with Dimitri he showed a huge love for Lego and Disney. His one true wish was to go to Walt Disney World Resort and Legoland.

In October 2016, Dimitri was surprised with the news that his wish would come true. During the grand opening of Kids Kingdom Orleans, Dimitri found out he and his family would be going to Walt Disney World® Resort and Legoland in Florida! Dimitri got the great news surrounded by friends and family who all shared in the excitement.

Dimitri and his family were whisked away In a big stretched limousine to the airport where Dimitri's magical wish experience would start. Upon his arrival at the airport, the WestJet representative came to greet them and helped them to their flight. Aboard the airplane, Dimitri got to go visit the cockpit and pretend to be a pilot. He was also announced as the VIP guest on the flight.

He and his family had a wonderful time at Give Kids the World. They really enjoyed all the parks but Legoland was his favourite.

"It was an unforgettable and magical week! Words cannot express how thankful and grateful that we are to Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario! Our family had an amazing time and Dimitri's wish was executed in a way above & beyond our expectations. Our family will remember this trip our entire life! Again, thank you so much"
