For one young girl who has been diagnosed with Dwarfism, a day with Belle at Disney World a dream come true.
If you ask seven-year-old Daisy, the fairest princess of them all would have to be Belle. In fact, this was all she asked for when she got nominated for Make A Wish.
Since she was born, Daisy has struggled with Achondroplasia. It is a form of Dwarfism that caused her to undergo various surgeries. In her young life, Daisy has already undergone surgeries for her neck, head, back and legs. And to help raise Daisy’s spirits up, a nurse at the Children’s Health in Dallas decided to nominate Daisy for a Make A Wish. Soon, Daisy’s nomination got accepted. That’s how the young girl from Houston found herself on the way to Walt Disney World in Florida.
The trip had been amazing for Daisy and the rest of her family. According to a report from E! News, Daisy and her siblings had stayed at Disney World for the weekend. And on Sunday, Daisy prepared to meet Belle by dressing up in her own yellow Belle dress. As they met the Disney princess, Daisy’s mom told Belle that she was the very reason why her little girl wanted to go to Disney World. Upon learning this, Belle thought she would make Daisy’s stay in Disney World just a touch more magical.
Belle gives Daisy’s family a magical surprise.
To everyone’s surprise, Belle volunteered to take Daisy’s entire family on a Tour of France at Epcot in Disney World. Upon hearing this, Daisy shed tears of joy. “Daisy was sobbing from happiness, and everyone around her was crying, too,” Daisy’s aunt Patricia said. Meanwhile, Belle herself was touched by the moment.” Daisy’s family had a wonderful tour with Belle and in the end, Belle herself was touched by Daisy’s spirit. “Disney characters never break character, but Belle almost started crying when she said goodbye to Daisy [at the end of the tour] because she was so touched,” Patricia recalled.
In the end, Daisy had a magical time and managed to forget all her problems for a little while. “For a day, Daisy wasn’t having to worry about surgeries or doctor’s appointments. She just got to be carefree and have fun,” Patricia remarked.
