Make-A-Wish Kid Shares Special Moment with Sheriff Woody at Walt Disney World

The Disney Parks Blog and Walt Disney World are continuing their #FeelGoodFriday series with the story of a Make-A Wish kid and his love for the Move It! Shake It! MousekeDance It! Street Party at the Magic Kingdom.

On a previous trip to Walt Disney World, 9-year-old Grant experienced the fun-filled dance party and it stayed with him, especially since the parade featured one of his favorite characters, Woody.

So during his recent Make-A-Wish trip, it only seemed fitting to surprise young Grant with a private meeting with the Toy Story sheriff and dancers from the Street Party.


Walt Disney World helps grant (no pun intended) more the 8,000 wishes each year, helping inspire and build strength in Make-A-Wish recipients. Since 1981, when Disney first partnered with Make-A-Wish, more that 130,000 Disney-inspired wishes have taken place.
