Amazing place! My son, when presented with his one wish, wanted to go to Disney in Florida. We had NO idea that not only would my son have the time of his life, but that our whole family would. From the time we got there until the time we left we were treated like royalty. Imagine going to breakfast (or lunch, dinner) and go to pick up your tray to take it to a table and someone say "Let me take that, your not going to lift a finger while your here..Enjoy being on vacation. You do so much all year round that this is the least that I can do for your family"... I was in shock. I actually had a hard time getting my kids to stay at the Theme parks because they wanted to get back to the village. Whether it was riding on the carousal, eating ice cream at 7am, or playing pirates and princess they were just surrounded by so many wonderful, loving, caring people who volunteer. No one makes them be there. In our times I often say that you can't find any good people in this world, well that's not true. Just seeing the love that Give Kids the World had for each and every child and child's family brought me to tears. During my son's hospital stay following brain surgery, we watch the video's of the village and the time we had. It really kept his spirits up during such a rough recovery. I wish I lived closer so that we could go volunteer to give back just a little of what they gave us...My son's star will forever live in that wonderful place so I know that part of him is still there, reminding everyone who see's it just how magical of a place that it is. God bless Give Kids The World and all of the volunteer's as well as those who donate to them!
