Israel's wish to visit the Florida Theme Parks

“ He had the trip of a lifetime... ”

Meet Israel: a sweet little 4-year-old who loves plain M&Ms, Skittles, and Cheetos and can charm his way to your heart (especially when you’re a female doctor or nurse, according to his dad). As an infant, Israel had a brain tumor that was surgically removed.

Unfortunately the tumor came back, and he underwent a more aggressive chemo treatment. Despite his trials, Israel remains a friendly, upbeat, and caring little guy who has no trouble just going with the flow.  Israel loves two things: Lightning McQueen and Mickey Mouse Playhouse.

He was a most enthusiastic participant at A Wishing Place, “oohing” and “aahing” at everything and simply bubbling with excitement. He even sang the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Hot Dog Song for his audience, making it clear that a visit to Walt Disney World® Resort was in order. 

Israel’s trip to the place where dreams come true definitely delivered on its promise.  Between chatting with his favorite characters, going on rides to his heart’s content, and enjoying Give Kids The World, he had the trip of a lifetime filled with just the right dose of adventure.  A magical trip to Walt Disney World® Resort was perfect for this endearing little bundle of energy.
