For Chase, a ten-year-old cancer warrior, nothing sounds better than an exciting day of roller coasters, delicious amusement park food and meeting some unforgettable characters along the way. The perfect break for Chase from worrying about test results, scans and the discomfort of treatment was to watch videos of Walt Disney World® Resorts and preparation for his epic wish adventure! Chase could not wait for his time to finally enter the gates of this magical place where dreams come true.
Give Kids The World, an 84-acre nonprofit resort in Orlando, was designed to host kids like Chase who wish to experience Disney World in its fullest! Chase and his family’s experience in the Castle of Dreams, Disney World, Universal Studios and SeaWorld was unlike any vacation the family had taken. Wish mom Laura gave high praises in reference to the incredible VIP and behind-the-scenes treatment that Chase and his family received throughout the trip. “We seriously felt like celebrities. All the time we saved from standing in line, we were able to get through all the attractions in half the time, which allowed us to go back and ride his favorites a second time or even third time! Chase loves thrill rides and he could not get enough of them! So literally, he ran from ride to ride, dragging the rest of us along,” said Laura. Thanks to Make-A-Wish® Colorado, Chase’s dreams came true during this week-long, fun and family filled trip of a lifetime.
