Wish: To go to Walt Disney World® Resort
Wish Date: March 2018

Seventeen-year-old Tanner likes the colour blue, gym class and hanging out with his friends! His favourite food is butter chicken and he likes the restaurants Wimpy’s Diner and The Keg. His favourite sports team is the Toronto Blue Jays and he enjoys baseball, basketball and soccer! Tanner’s most cherished wish came true to go to Walt Disney World® Resort!

A limousine arrived at his home to pick up Tanner and his family, which was a surprise to him! On the airplane, the surprises continued when WestJetters announced Tanner was on board and his wish was coming true! They also invited Tanner to go in the cockpit, meet the captain and check out all the controls of the plane! This was very exciting!

When Tanner and his family arrived at Give Kids The World Village, they were greeted with smiles and shown to their private villa. Tanner’s family tells us that the Village was awesome, and that the themed nights were one of the best parts! They were amazed at how much Give Kids The World Village had to offer.

Tanner and his family loved exploring all the area theme parks, however he especially enjoyed a very magical day at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. He was ecstatic and overwhelmed to see all the different Harry Potter themed rides, shops and to learn all about he secrets throughout the Wizarding World! He and his family loved taking the train from Hogsmeade Station at Islands of Adventure over to King’s Cross station in London at Universal Studios.

Tanner’s Dad tells us the days at the theme parks were long, but SO worth it! He says they had amazing weather all week and couldn’t have asked for anything more. Tanner says his favourite part of his wish was “everything”, and that it was an amazing wish trip that brought them closer as a family!
