Oliver's Wish: "I wish to go to Disney World!"
Granted By: GUTS 2016

Wish kid Oliver is a sweet five-year-old boy who is the apple of his family's eye. It is clear to anyone that meets this loving family, that they share a wonderful bond. Unlike many boys his age, Oliver has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. When Oliver was given the chance to let his imagination wander and wish for anything, he decided that he would love to go to Disney World® with his whole family.

Leading up to the trip, Oliver and his family couldn't wait for a week of fun in the sun in warm Orlando, Florida. When they arrived, they were taken to a private villa at the Give Kids The World Village®, a candy-land themed resort reserved for children with life-threatening medical conditions. At Disney World, Oliver rode all the rides, and experienced the extraordinary Disney sights. Along the way, Oliver met Mickey Mouse and various LEGO characters. He also got to visit a petting zoo where he made friends with a sweet goat! The highlight of Oliver's trip was when he got to play with light-sabers just like in the Star Wars films.

For Oliver's parents, their favorite part of the trip was simply spending time relaxing together. The memories the family made are irreplaceable and they will cherish them for years to come.
