Disney World

Ashton was granted a wish from Make-A-Wish Foundation in February of this year. Our whole family went to Florida to Disney World. We went to all 4 parks there plus Universal Studios and Sea World. On our last day we went to Clear Water Beach on the gulf coast and had a great time. We stayed at a place called Give Kids The World that is just for Make-A-Wish kids. It is very cool! If you would like to check out their website go to to see what an amazing place this is for the kids. Ashton can go back to Give Kids The World any time he wants for free for the rest of his life. There is a star with his name on it in their castle along with 100 thousand other stars from other wish kids.

Several characters came to GKTW to have their pictures taken with the kids. Mickey & Minnie was a highlight. Even when we were in the parks we didn't have to wait in line, they would let Ashton go to the front of the line for pictures.

We had a special pass that got us to the front of all of the lines. I think the longest we waited for a ride was 15 minutes. Some of the rides they took us through the back stage door and put us right on the ride without even seeing a line. It was pretty cool!

We have a bunch more pictures so I will take some time again and post more later.
