This is an unfortunate story for Disney's Magic Kingdom. The child was terminally ill and would have died at some point in his young life. At least he got his wish to visit Disney World. "Give Kids the World" is a wonderful program. I believe at 6 years old, he was too young to even ride Space Mountain. But who am I to say........he fulfilled his dream.
Rest his tiny soul.

A child dying is always a tragedy, but I believe that this is the way I would want to go. Dying happy.
