We stayed at Give Kids the World in May of 2012 when my son Aidan, 5 years old, was granted a wish through A Wish Come True, Inc. to visit Disney World. From the moment we arrived at GKTW, we were treated like VIP guests! Our villa was beautiful, warm and welcoming. Aidan's younger sister Alannah, then 3 years old, absolutely fell in love with Mayor Clayton and Miss Merry, and looked forward each day to seeing them around the village. Both children were so excited each day to find the special gifts left in our villa for them. Aidan's favorite part of each day was swimming in the Park of Dreams. Throughout our week we enjoyed the nightly parties, the delicious food, and all the fun we could fit in. But there was nothing more special than the many volunteers and staff who worked so diligently to ensure we enjoyed the best vacation ever. When the time came to pack up and get ready to return home, it was really hard to leave. It was the first time since Aidan's birth that our family had been given the opportunity to truly relax and enjoy a week together. It was a priceless gift to be given that time together. Since returning home the kids have put up some special tokens of their time at GKTW in their bedrooms so they are always reminded of our wonderful experience there.
