“ We wouldn't change a thing! ”

- Lainey's Mother

    • I wish to go to Disney World
  • I wish to go

Lainey is a 10-year-old girl who loves to dance, watch movies, and play Minecraft.  When Lainey was just an infant, her parents noticed that something wasn’t right.  Lainey was soon diagnosed with cystic fibrosis.  Having been through years of treatment, she is more than deserving of a wish.  When the time came for Lainey to make her wish, she chose to go to Disney World!

Make-A-Wish made sure that Lainey’s Disney World adventure was nothing short of magical.  Even getting there was fun!  Lainey loved riding to the airport in a limousine like a movie star.  When Lainey arrived to the airport gate, she was greeted by the Southwest Airlines staff with a banner welcoming her as their flight’s special guest of honor! 

At Disney World, Lainey loved meeting the different Disney characters and riding all of the rides.  Make-A-Wish wasn’t finished yet; it was arranged for Lainey to spend a day at Universal Studios Orlando!  One of her favorite parts of Universal Studios was visiting The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.  On top of all that fun, Lainey even learned how to ride a horse!  Lainey didn’t want her wish trip to end.  It was an amazing experience where she could let loose and just be a kid. 

Lainey and her family would like to give a special thank-you to Crystal from Southwest Airlines.  Crystal went out of her way to make Lainey’s experience unforgettable.  Everyone at the Make-A-Wish Northeastern California and Northern Nevada chapter was honored to grant Lainey’s wish.
