Last weekend Wishes 4 Kids granted this AMAZING little boy's wish by sending him and his lovely family to Disneyland Paris. We picked him up from his house at 2am and he was full of energy and so excited to meet Mickey Mouse and all of the other Disney characters. The family enjoyed 3 magical days in Disney where they received VIP treatment the entire time that they were there. On arrival at the Newport Bay Hotel they were looked after by voluntEARS who could not do enough for them. They were taken to the very front of every single queue including all of the rides, all of the Disney characters and all of the restaurants. All of the families meals were paid for and they had their own special VIP area to watch the parades and the fireworks show at night. After 3 incredible days we collected the family from Luton airport and enjoyed listening to so many stories and all of the magical moments that they shared together. THANK YOU to everyone who chooses to support our Charity. Your support enables us to make wonderful children's dreams come true❤️ ... See MoreSee Less

We recently had the great pleasure of granting the wish of this wonderful little boy. He is fanatical about Harry Potter and his wish was to watch Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. This show is split into 2 parts so we sent him and his parents for an overnight stay in London where they were able to enjoy both performances of the show at the London Theatre. The family then enjoyed an overnight stay in the 4-star Strand Palace hotel. The little boy was so happy and grateful for everything that we had arranged for him. He personally made us a beautiful 'thank you' canvas with a very moving message which read ''When you've been in the dark you learn to appreciate everything that shines''❤️ ... See MoreSee Less
