Brennon visits Walt Disney World® Resort

Brennon with Lightning McQueen at Disney

“ ...The only thing you have to do is have fun! ”


- Wish parents, Shannon and Stephen

As a very active and imaginative 6-year-old, Brennon does not let boredom find him. His interests range from Harry Potter to superheroes to Disney characters.

When talking with his wish granting volunteers, there was only one place Brennon could think of where he could find all his favorite things – Walt Disney World® Resort. 

 While planning Brennon’s wish trip, his parents shared, “Brennon lives and breathes Spiderman Brennon with Ariel at Disneyand everything that is Spiderman.” Knowing his favorite superhero, Brennon’s wish granting volunteers thought it was only appropriate to have Spiderman be a part of the wish reveal. At the Make-A-Wish event World of Wishes held in Bismarck, Brennon was brought to the stage. He shared with the audience what he had wished for. Then came Spiderman jumping and weaving his way through the crowd to the stage. There he told Brennon the news that his wish was coming true! It was the perfect way to build excitement for this much needed vacation.

On his seventh birthday, Brennon began the trip of a lifetime. He did not let his heart condition get in the way of having a fun-filled week and neither did his family. They expressed their gratitude, “For an entire week you are able to forget your child is sick (don’t ask me how). The only thing you have to do is have fun!”
Just as his interests range so did his favorite moments of his wish trip. Unable to pick just one favorite moment Brennon shared his top highlights including riding Hagrid’s bike in Dragon Alley at the Harry Potter Theme Park, Jedi training at Hollywood Studios®, fighting Darth Vader and getting to meet Santa at Give Kids the World Village.

 He rode rides, found magic at the Harry Potter Theme Park and met Disney characters and superheroes. For this active boy, it was a wish come true. “Everyone involved in Brennon’s wish process will have a special place in our hearts. Thank you!”

For an entire week you are able to forget your child is sick (don’t ask me how). The only thing you have to do is have fun! ”
