Annabella, age 7, from Topeka loves The Little Mermaid, High School Musical and The Wizards of Waverly Place. When wish granters asked Annabella what she wanted as her wish, she told them that she wanted to go to Disney World® in Florida with her best friend, Isabelle. She wanted to go to Disney World so she could “ride the Dumbos” and see Princess Ariel from The Little Mermaid.
Because Annabella is an only child, she is allowed to bring along a best friend on the trip to share in the magical experience. Annabella and her mom flew off to Florida along with Annabella’s best friend Isabelle and her mother. They stayed at Give Kids The World Village and got to celebrate Annabella’s 8th birthday while on the trip.
While in Florida, they enjoyed everything Give Kids The World had to offer. Annabella and Isabelle rode the merry-go-round and were able to enjoy the newly-opened Park of Dreams Pool and Water Garden at GKTW. The girls met several of the Disney and Nickelodeon characters at the various theme parks, including all of the Disney princesses at the Magic Kingdom. The highlight of Annabella’s trip came on her birthday--the girls dressed up in their princess dresses and went to Cinderella’s castle at the Magic Kingdom where reservations had been made at the Bippity Boppity Boutique. They were treated to a princess glitter hairstyle, shimmery make-up, and beautiful painted nails…and Annabella was given a special birthday sash to wear around the park the rest of the day.
The following morning, the girls got up and had ice cream for breakfast before they departed to return home. Annabella had an amazing time on her wish trip…it’s a birthday she will never forget!
