“ It was the best time ever! ”

- Wish Child Zoey

  • Zoey , 5

    • kidney cancer
    • I wish to meet a princess at Disneyland
  • I wish to meet

After an assumed ear infection would not clear up, Zoey’s parents became concerned.  Doctors found a tumor near Zoey’s kidney when she was just four years old, but that hasn’t stopped her from being a fun-loving little girl!  Like many girls her age, Zoey loves the color pink and princesses, especially Disney princesses!  Zoey wished to meet some of them in person by going on a trip to Disneyland! 

Zoey’s Make-A-Wish experience began when she sent her wish into a magical tower at The Wishing Place in Sacramento.  Her wish to go to Disneyland was soon granted at a princess-themed party!

Zoey embarked on her Disney-Princess adventure with her family in a luxurious limousine ride to the airport, and it was only the beginning!  Zoey then received special treatment on the plane ride to Disneyland!  She met the pilot and was given a personal tour of the plane’s cockpit.

Zoey and her family then spent a wonderful few days in Disneyland.  Not only did Zoey experience the excitement of meeting Elsa and Anna from Disney’s Frozen, she got to chat with Ariel, Cinderella, Tinker Bell, and Snow White!  Zoey wrapped-up her magical week with a day at Universal Studios Hollywood.

“Zoey loved everything,” said Zoey’s mother Corina Vasquez. “We are so grateful; Thank you so much.”

It was the best time ever! ”
