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

Rating: 5 stars  

My daughter was diagnosed with her 2nd malignant brain tumor in 2009,after her treatment we applied to make a wish because it was her dream to go to Disney.We were sent here by our organization.I can not possibly say enough wonderful things about GKTW.It is a truely magical place.We spent and incredible fun filled week here just full of surprises.We stayed in a wonderful little bungalow that even had a whirlpool tub that the kids looked forward to every night,we would come home after a day out at the parks and find surprise gifts left on the table everyday.The place itself always has something fun to do , horseback riding, playground,arcade,huge pool,train rides free ice cream all day!!! But they also have parties, parades, character meets from the parks.They provided us with more park tix than we got to even use and also had cameras and camcorders for us to use to record our trip and put them on disks for us at teh end that was especially special for me as I did not own on of my own and those are the best souvineers..We were fortunate enough to go back this year for an afternoon visit and it was like coming home, we were welcomed back, given lunch and let loose to play all afternoon my only regret was not getting there earlier in the day to really take it all in.Everyday that we were there in 2009 was filled with so many special things I still get teary eyed looking back and both of my kids still remember every detail of that trip, it will stay with them forever! We look forward to the day when we can go back and give back by being volunteers.
