Review for Give Kids The World, Kissimmee, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our family stayed at GKTW for a week in June 2009. We were plucked out of a life full of doctors' appointments, hospital stays, and stress, and plopped down in a magical place. GKTW thought of everything down to a footstool in the bathroom so our youngest could reach the sink. My son was becoming more dependent on his wheelchair, and we found that GKTW was truly accessible. Not once did we have to go around to the back to get to a ramp or squeeze the wheelchair between tables. During one activity, we had a diaper emergency and to our relief, we discovered that there was an adult sized changing table in the public restroom. These little details did as much to make our stay magical as many of the touches that were intended to. Three years later, my daughters are still talking about our week there and remembering the kindness, caring, and generosity that we experienced at every moment of our trip. My son can't speak, but we have photographs of his trip up on his wall, and he loves to stand and look at them. Even if he can't truly remember his trip, we will never forget the smiles it put on his face!
