Pluto saying hi to everyone...
On February 6th, the Orton Family left for Walt Disney World. We were picked up in a stretch white limosuine that took us to the airport. From there we caught our plane to Orlando, FL. We were met by a "Give Kids The World" volunteer. (only wish kids are able to stay at GKTW) He collected our luggage, brought us to our rental van, gave us directions to GKTW and sent us on our way. We stayed for a total of 10 days and were able to take in many sites and attractions. GKTW in itself was like it's own theme park. They had a huge movie theatre, mini-golf, a merry-go-round, ice cream parlor, face painting, Disney characters that came to the village special to see the wish kids and much more. We visited EPCOT, MGM, Magic Kingdom, Sea World, Universal, Adventure Islands and of course Ben's grandparents who were staying in Tampa, FL at the time. It was an unbelievable, unforgettable and magical trip of a lifetime! We want to thank our wish volunteers, Maureen and Kim, who made it possible. We love you
