Kinley Has a Fantastic Time at Florida Theme Parks

“My favorite part was going on the 3D rides. I had a lot of fun!”

Kinley suffered from a concussion and had to be treated in a hospital. During her stay it was discovered that she had a brain tumor. Kinley underwent a 14-hour brain surgery procedure after her diagnosis. A week later she also had to undergo emergency surgery, as doctors discovered that her incision was leaking spinal fluid.

Kinley loves Disney princesses, and it has always been her wish to be able to visit Disney World and see all her favorite characters. Kids Wish Network granted her wish and flew Kinley and her family from Michigan to Orlando, Florida. During her wish, Kinley and her family stayed at the Hyatt Place Orlando Convention Center. Upon arrival at the hotel, Kinley was surprised with a Disney princess bag filled with goodies. After settling into their room, Kinley and her family went to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum and the SEA LIFE Aquarium.

The real fun began the next day when Kinley and her family headed to Disney World to spend time at the parks. Kinley went to Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom, and had a fantastic time at both. Kinley got to meet Cinderella at Magic Kingdom, and loved going to the animal shows at Animal Kingdom. After an exciting day at the parks, Kinley and her family dined at Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar. After their second day at Disney, Kinley and her family had a fantastic dinner at Highball & Harvest. Kinley was especially surprised when their server brought out her dessert with a Cinderella slipper decoration on top. The extra detail really made Kinley feel special.

After her wonderful time at Disney, Kinley went to Universal Studios where she had a blast riding plenty of 3D and 4D rides including Shrek and Transformers. Kinley especially loved seeing the famous animal actors show, where she got to watch and even interact with animals that had been involved with various movies. After an exhilarating day at Universal, Kinley and her family had a delicious dinner at Joe’s Crab Shack before getting ready to head back home with all their souvenirs and happy memories.
