Dianas Wish


“ Diana is still almost speechless when she tries to describe her feelings in the moment that she met Pocahonta's. The word she sums up her wish experience is simply, "Amazing!" ”

  • I wish to meet

When describing Diana, some words that come to mind are intuitive, clever, and of course, adorable.  Diana does not allow her medical condition and the fact that she is confined to a wheelchair most of the time, get her down.  She is spunky and sly, wheelchair and all, and wanted nothing more than to just be a kid at Disney World for her wish.

Diana’s idol is Pocahontas, and it definitely makes sense.  Like Diana, Pocahontas is a princess who is in tune with the earth and her surroundings, LOVES all animals, and just wants everyone to get along and be kind.  Leading up to her wish, Diana dreamed of meeting her favorite Disney character and imagined talking to her about all of her adventures.  When the moment actually came for Diana and Pocahontas to meet, she was star struck.  You can see it all in her eyes – the wonder and amazement at meeting her favorite princess, someone that she looks up to and wants to be like, for the first time.  Their special meeting in the middle of the Magic Kingdom will never be forgotten.  Pocahontas did most of the talking at first, but by the end of their time together, Diana had shared all about her favorite animals, the fun things that she had seen and done at Disney World already, and everything she had hoped to take away from their encounter.
