Latest Status Update

  • Wish kid Eden lives and breathes princesses - she even dresses up as a different one and has tea parties each day! You can only imagine her surprise and excitement when her volunteer wish granters brought over a princess-themed cake for her to enjoy with family and friends. Then, when the doorbell rang and Eden's mom opened the door, Eden couldn’t believe her eyes when she saw Belle and Elsa standing there. The princesses were so excited to celebrate Eden’s upcoming wish to go to Disney World with her and talked all about the fun things to do at the theme parks. It was the perfect way for Eden and her family to get ready for their trip of a lifetime!
