Reiko's Wish

Five-year-old Reiko, who is living with an inherited skeletal disorder, loves superheroes and playing on his trampoline! His favourite colours are orange, blue and red and he loves gummy treats! He watches lots of movies in his spare time and likes to play video games. Reiko wished to go to Walt Disney World® Resort!

His mom said “The wish trip was exhausting but lots of fun. The boys had an incredible time. Kai was absolutely in love with the flights and meeting the pilots, and Reiko was in heaven when he met Mickey Mouse…twice! I think that was their favourite parts of the wish trip aside from swimming every day.

Every day they would come back and get so excited to see their gifts from Give Kids The World and we ate way too much good food there. Derek and I's favourite experience was definitely going to Rainforest Cafe with the boys. Because of Make-A-Wish, they got us in right away and made the boys meal on the house as well as including their Rainforest frog cups! And then when we watched the Indiana Jones stunt show at Hollywood Studios, they had the boys come up and be junior directors. After the show, they met Indiana Jones and he gave them a signed hat! We were treated like royalty all week.

The wish really allowed us t to relax and get to know each other again. With work and the boys in school, we haven't spent that much time together in years. So that was really special to get that one on one time with them and not have to think about appointments etc. It was an incredibly wonderful week and we won't ever forget that time. Thank you for everything.”

Reiko’s wish was spectacular due to support from Walt Disney World® Resort and The Walt Disney Company.
