Lizzie’s Wish Day 3
Day 3 began with Princess Lizzie meeting her most favorite princess, Belle! What a sweet moment for our girl! Belle was amazing and very understanding with Lizzie. Some of you know Lizzie has sensory issues and will not touch plush, velvety materials so Belle’s dress was a little overwhelming for her. But Belle’s gloves, they were perfect. Lizzie was thrilled. First, she loves gloves (must have something to do with just about every adult she was in contact with during her 5 month hospital stay always wore gloves around her), and second, they were her favorite satiny material. Lizzie gently touched her hands over and over. While Lizzie is unable to speak, she was mesmerized, and her face says it all. Lizzie signed “thank you” multiple times and even gave Belle a kiss before we left. I know she will treasure this memory, as I will forever. Thank you Make-A-Wish Mid Atlantic and Walt Disney World for making Lizzie’s wish come true.
The rest of the day included a run in with another favorite friend of Lizzie, Minnie Mouse! She rode the Dumbo ride with her big brother and enjoyed visiting the Beast’s Castle. We also had a great time at Hollywood Studios highlighted with VIP treatment at the Frozen Sing Along. Anna, Elsa, & Kristoff even surprised us all with an autographed story book for her. So precious! Tomorrow will be a down day for us, but I’m certain it will be just as magical!
