Make-A-Wish and Disney Celebrate 100,000 Wishes

Disney Header

“It’s amazing to think that 35 years ago, Make-A-Wish granted its very first wish at the Disneyland Resort, which sparked a legacy of fulfilling wishes that has captured so many hearts,” said Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. “It’s wonderful to celebrate our 100,000th wish together, and we’re proud to play a role in bringing smiles and laughter to wish children and their families.”

On the giant water screens at Rivers of America, Make-A-Wish shared the story of seven-year-old Luke’s dream to visit Disneyland Resort with his entire family. Luke spent several fun-filled days visiting the parks – sharing magical moments with Lightning McQueen and Mater in Radiator Springs, meeting Anna and Elsa, and enjoying special viewings of World of Color – Celebrate!, the Paint the Night Parade and Disneyland Forever Fireworks Spectacular.

Nearly 8,000 Disney wishes are granted every year – including experiences at Disney Parks, voyages on Disney Cruise Line, and visits to TV and movie sets. We’re proud to lend our support to Make-A-Wish and help families make lasting memories together.

Watch the magic!
