Very much like it - I believe Make a Wish foundation is more for chronically sick children
I had heard of it Dreams Take Flight, but It didn't dawn on me exactly what it was until the principal called me
I'm a little nervous about having her go alone - BUT it's fully supervised (we meet all of the volunteers/doctors/medical team) that go with them on the 4th of October.
On "the" day. They are met with many of the local "heros" - soldiers, sports teams etc to wish them a safe trip with games, giveaways songs etc. They are all provided with an outfit that they all need to wear so that they're easy to watch in a crowded amusement park.
Each child gets a chance to go to the cockpit and meet the captain prior to take off.
Games, songs, treats, movies etc during the flight
Once they arrive at the aiport, they're greeted by the LAPD and LAFD who give the kids a waterworks show (water works from the fire trucks), then escorts them to Disneyland. They are fed, bought treats, rides, games and given disposable cameras to take pictures of their special day.
LOL I Wanna go! hehehe
