Continuing their 40 year partnership with Make-A-Wish, this past week, Disneyland Resort made magic happen for one boy who dreamed of meeting his hero, John Ratzenberger.
- Disney is in the business of making dreams and wishes come true. Last week Disney made magic once again for a 12-year-old boy.
- Spencer’s Make-A-Wish dream was to share a frozen treat, not with Mickey Mouse or Spider-Man, but the voice of the
abominableadorable snowman, John Ratzenberger.
- On January 28, at Pixar Pier in Disney California Adventure, his wish came true!
- Armed with his Monster’s Inc. yeti plush (his favorite character, voiced by Ratzenberger), Spencer and his new friend snacked on goodies from Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats.
- During their visit, he also gave Ratzenberger a journal full of drawings and pictures.
What he’s saying:
- Spencer on why he wanted to meet John Ratzenberger: “He’s my hero. He’s funny and he sounds like such a nice guy. He’s in every Pixar movie and I love that. I feel happy when I watch him.”
- Spencer on his special Wish visit with Ratzenberger: “I just can’t believe it. I sure did enjoy being with him, and he called me a friend. Being his friend is so nice, and it made my heart shine brighter than ever. I can’t believe it was actually him!”
Disney and Make-A-Wish:
- In 2019, Disneyland Resort made more than 700 wishes come true for children with life-threatening medical conditions.
- The Disneyland Resort is thrilled to continue its partnership with Make-A-Wish in celebrating the organization’s 40th anniversary this year in the place where it all began, the Happiest Place on Earth!
- As Disney continues to add magic to children’s lives, they recently shared a new video highlighting Wish Kids reciting the iconic Super Bowl MVP slogan “I’m going to Disney World!”
