Wish Kid OliviaOlivia is a 9 year-old from Austin with germ cell tumors. She decided that her one true wish was to go on a Disney Cruise. Olivia got to explore the cruise ship, meet beloved Disney characters, and play on the beach during her adventure at sea!

Wish Kid OliviaOlivia has always loved Disney movies and the beach, so going on a Disney Cruise was her perfect dream vacation.  Her wish was granted when her family boarded the “Disney Dream” and took off on a weeklong adventure. Each day was filled with a new show, excursion, and tons of fun! Olivia’s mom said, “The cruise was absolutely one of the best experiences we’ve all had.”

While on the ship, Olivia and her sister also got to meet some of their favorite Disney characters, including Donald Duck, Princess Ariel, and Princess Belle. Olivia also got to spend time with the Disney Dream’s captain in the command center of the cruise. She even earned her own pirate captain’s hat!

Her favorite part of the trip was when the cruise docked at Castaway Cay, a Disney island in the Bahamas. Olivia’s family enjoyed the beautiful beaches and her mom said, “It was wonderful to see Olivia be able to relax and have fun at the beach and in the water.”
