“My favorite part of the wish was the relief of getting away from the stressors of life and just getting to enjoy each other and have fun.”
Austin suffers from a Chiari malformation that affects the area of the brain responsible for controlling balance. Because of his condition, Austin struggles with vision problems, muscle weakness, issues with balance, and pain in the back of his head and neck.
Austin loves Harry Potter and has always wanted to go to Harry Potter World at Universal Studios. Kids Wish Network granted Austin’s wish and flew him and his family to Orlando, Florida. Austin’s family stayed at the Wyndham Lake Buena Vista Resort located in Disney Springs just a short drive from the parks. Austin went to every Disney theme park and had a truly wonderful time in the house of the mouse. After exploring Disney, Austin and his family went to Ruby Tuesday for a delicious meal. Austin spent another day at the Disney parks, and he and his family had a delicious tropical dinner at Bahama Breeze.
After his magical time at Disney, Austin went to Universal Studios. Austin truly enjoyed Universal Studios and had an especially grand time at Harry Potter World. Austin’s favorite attraction throughout his trip was the Escape from Gringotts ride. After a thrilling day at Universal Studios, Austin and his family had dinner and a leisurely game of bowling at Splitsville.
“My Favorite part of the wish was the relief of getting away from the stressors of life and just getting to enjoy each other and have fun,” said Austin’s mother Liana.
