Sammy: I wish to go to Disney's Animal Kingdom

Sammy: I wish to go to Disney World

“ Sammy has never smiled so much ”

Twelve year old Sammy from Casper has Cerebral Palsy along with several related complications.  Sammy loves animals and had been studying about Africa in school.  Although Sammy is non-verbal, his parents knew exactly what he would say if he could: I wish to go to Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World® to see all of the animals!  

Sammy got a private safari tour with a very knowledgeable guide. Sammy’s favorite experiences were the Safari, the turtle carousel, The Lion King Show, parades, and of course ice cream every day.  Sammy was also able to enjoy Sea World, Epcot, Magic Kingdom, and Universal Studios.  Sammy thoroughly enjoyed his trip; it was non-stop fun and a once in a lifetime experience for him!
