Five-year-old Lilla just cannot get enough of princesses! She loves watching princesses on television, dressing up like a princess and playing “make-believe” with all of her princess friends. Unfortunately, she suffers from a brain tumor, which, at times, makes it difficult for her to have the energy to do all of the things she loves.
When Make-A-Wish® volunteers arrived to help determine Lilla’s greatest wish, she knew that she wanted to go to California to meet her favorite princess, Sleeping Beauty!
Lilla and her family had never traveled to California before, so they had a wonderful cross country trip and loved experiencing all of the unique opportunities that Disneyland® has to offer!
Lilla loved visiting Pixie Hollow where she got to meet Tinker Bell and all of the other fairies. They also loved going to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and even meeting other Make-A-Wish kids! However, Lilla’s favorite moment during her wish trip was getting to spend one-on-one time with the Disney princesses. She especially loved meeting her favorite princess, Sleeping Beauty!
It was a wonderful trip for the entire family. Lilla’s mom reflected on the trip by sharing, “It was a lifetime of memories that we will never be able to repay. I cannot put into words what Lilla’s wish meant to our family.”
