Mason's wish to go on a Disney Cruise

Mason in the porthole

“ We were treated like rockstars from beginning to end! ”

Mason and his family began their adventure when a "giant limo" pulled into their driveway. Mason, his brother Matthew, age 7, his mom Mary and dad Mark, all boarded what would be beginning of Mason's wish, cruising on the Disney Dream. Mason wore his Captain's hat, that was given to him by wish granters Lory and Mary. The Disney Dream cast saluted "Captain Mason" as he boarded the ship with his family. He was thrilled and believed he was the Captain! 

The family was amazed at the size and beauty of the ship and their room was everything they imagined. Matthew loved sleeping on the bunk bed and Mason on the pull out bed. There were snacks and all kinds of goodies for them to enjoy and were replenished daily. Mason and Matthew enjoyed the aqua duct ride and could not believe how much fun it was. Mason loved everything on his wish and could not decide which was his favorite experience. He decided that meeting Captain Mickey, dressed in uniform and wearing his Captain's hat was the most magical moment. 

The family enjoyed themselves in Nassau at the Atlantis and on Disney's private island, Castaway Cay. Mason continues to ask when they can go back on the ship. The family could not express enough gratitude to everyone that helped make Mason's wish come true. They were treated like "Rock Stars" from the beginning to the end.
