Winston ventures to the happiest place on earth

“ I loved everything! ”

- Winston

  • Winston , 8

    • nervous system disorder
    • I wish to go to Disneyland® Resort

As much as Winston loves Disney heroes, it's their evil counterparts that he can't seem to get enough of. 

"The villains get to boss people around," said Winston. "It's funny."

Characters like Captain Hook, Mother Gothel, and Shere Khan are the antagonists the 8-year-old loves the most.

Winston's genuine desire to meet these notorious bad guys, is what shaped his wish to go to Disneyland® Resort.

"I made a wish, and my wish came true," said Winston. "We flew on an airplane, it was fun!"

Upon his arrival, Winston spotted Captain Hook and ran up to meet him face-to-face. 

"I grabbed his Hook, and I held his hand," said Winston. "I met all my favorite characters, it was fun."

Winston also discovered a new love: rides!

"My favorite was the teacups," he exclaimed. "We also went to Cars Land, and went on the Cars ride seven times!"

The trip was also a chance for Winston's family to spend time together, and focus on simply having fun.

"Winston was so happy the entire trip," said his mom, Lacey. "We had such a great experience."

"I loved spending time with my family," said Winston. "I loved everything about my wish, it was great!"
