Shelby-Lee's wish to go to Walt Disney World Resort!

Shelby-Lee is a six-year-old girl suffering from brain tumors. Her one true wish was to go to Walt Disney World Resort.

Her wish was adopted by Students For Wishes Carleton University who revealed her wish in a very special way. The students invited Shelby-Lee and family to Carleton University for the big reveal celebration! They had prepared a special princess party to surprise Shelby with the news that her wish to go to Disney would come true! Shelby was treated like Royalty with her very own throne where she received gifts, foods and lots of treats! What an amazing reveal and wish journey experience!

In January 2017, Shelby-Lee's wish came true! They arrived at the Ottawa airport and were greeted by wonderful WestJet representatives that treated her like a VIP. Shelby and her family flew to sunny Orlando, Florida to continue this magical journey!

The family had an amazing time! When her mom asked Shelby what her favourite moment was she replied, "All of it! I loved everything mom!"

"From the look on her face, I think her absolute favourite moment was meeting the little mermaid, her favourite princess! Out of everything she loved the magic kingdom the most, she was in awe the whole day! At the resort, her favourite was the pool, Shelby loved to swim! Every morning she would get us to go on the ride in our pjs! The entire trip was amazing! Thank you"
