Arie wished to go on a Disney cruise

“It’s definitely a time we will never forget! ”

Dear Make-A-Wish,

Recently you had granted a wish for my son, Arie. I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for fulfilling his wish.

On September 11th, Arie and the family boarded the Disney Dream for a four day Disney Cruise. Arie had a wonderful four days of pure enjoyment and fun. It was nice to see his face filled with excitement, especially when he and his siblings went to the Oceaneer’s Club and when he met the Disney Characters. Arie, his sister and brother frequented the Oceaneer’s Club and stayed until it closed at 1:00 a.m. Even at that time they did not want to leave. The one character Arie wanted to see the most was Stitch. A couple of days had passed and still no sighting of Stitch. After several times of asking, “When are we going to see Stitch?” I started to worry. Then his dream came true. It was our third night and he finally met Stitch! Arie had the biggest smile ever!!

If you were to ask Arie what his favorite thing was about the Disney Cruise was, he would tell you riding the Aquaduck and meeting Stitch.

I want to thank everyone at Make-A-Wish who made his wish possible. It’s definitely a time we will never forget!

Susan, Arie's mom
