Lauren's wish to go on a Disney Cruise Line Cruise

Lauren is an adorable 3-year-old girl suffering from leukodystrophy. Lauren loves swimming, princesses and mermaids. Lauren's wish was revealed at Rogers House after her Baptism ceremony. Lauren, family and guests were overwhelmed with joy when they found out that her wish will come true.

On April 29th, 2016 Lauren and her family were whisked away to the airport in a big stretch limousine and Lauren's wish experience began.

We received lots of updates from the family during their trip. As you can see below, they were eager to share their excitement with us!

"It's cruise day! We will be catching the Disney Bus out of the Orlando Airport at 1:00 p.m. to Port Canaveral! Lauren slept 13 hours last night and is ready & rocking that beautiful smile this morning.

We're on the boat! What an amazingly warm welcome from all of the Disney Cruise staff.

This will be an awesome week full of enjoyable experiences. We are having an amazing day at Sea! Lauren enjoyed a swim in the Mickey pool followed by a mid-morning nap on the pool deck.

Great day in Mexico at our first port. Lauren swam in the ocean for the first time ever and absolutely loved it! Tomorrow we port in the Cayman Islands!

Lauren's absolute favourite thing to do besides swimming is sleep! She loves lounging on the deck chairs with the wind in her hair.

It has been a beautiful day here in Jamaica. Lauren really enjoyed cooling off in the Funnel Puddle pool with mommy!

We received a phone call in our stateroom this morning from the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique asking if Lauren could meet her Fairy-Godmother-in-training at 3:45 p.m. for her very own princess makeover! How exciting! Lauren will get her hair, makeup and nails done.

We are home from the most magical trip of our lives. Thank you Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario!"

Our thanks to Disney Cruise Lines, WestJet, Sony and TuGo for helping make Lauren's wish come true!
