Jacob’s Wild Wish at Disney Animal Kingdom Park

“My favorites were the rhinos and alligators.”

Jacob Harris loves theme parks and roller coasters, and has always wanted to visit some of the best theme parks in Florida. Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes to kids with life-threatening illnesses, granted Jacob’s wish and sent him on a Florida theme park extravaganza. Kids Wish Network flew Jacob and his family from their home in Georgia to Orlando, Florida for an exhilarating animal and Disney expedition.

After arriving in Orlando, Jacob and his family stayed at the beautiful Sheraton Vistana Village hotel. For his first theme park, Jacob spent the day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. He had a blast seeing all the exotic animals and riding the Expedition Everest roller coaster. His favorite part of his time spent at Animal Kingdom was going on the safari and seeing all the different animals up close. “I loved the rhinos and alligators,” said Jacob. After an adventurous safari day at Disney, he and his family had a star filled dinner at Planet Hollywood.

The next theme park Jacob enjoyed was Busch gardens. He had a blast on the rides, and also got to see plenty of animals during his trip including rhinos, his favorite animal. After an exhilarating day, Jacob and his family had a phenomenal dinner at the Melting Pot.

Jacob’s final theme park pick was SeaWorld. He had a fun day on the rides and experiencing all the marine wildlife. After his final day at the parks, Jacob and his family had dinner at Kings Bowl, a restaurant and bowling alley. He had a blast and almost loved it as much as the theme parks, a relaxing end to an exhilarating wish.

Kids Wish Network would like to thank the following sponsors for making Jacob’s dreams become a reality:

  • Sheraton Vistana Village
  • Planet Hollywood
