Make-A-Wish®: Wish Stories
The Sky's the Limit
Wyatt's Out-of-this-World Wish Becomes Reality

11/16/2012

The sky's the limit for the imagination of Wyatt, a special five-year-old boy from Lowber, Pa., diagnosed with liver disease. Wyatt, who is fascinated with outer space, loves to pretend he is exploring the great unknown while playing with Transformers action figures and can name every planet in the solar system. When asked what his most heartfelt wish would be, he exclaimed, "I want to go to the moon, ride in a spaceship, ride in an airplane and see the beach!" Where would he be able to do all of that? At the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, of course!

This past fall, Wyatt and his family boarded a plane destined for sunny Florida. As soon as Wyatt got on the airplane, he was escorted to the cockpit. This excited wish kid got to experience what it would be like to fly a plane, sitting in the pilot's seat behind the many controls. Wyatt felt like he was on top of the world, flying through the clouds on his first flight. When he and his family arrived in Florida, their first stop was The Resort on Cocoa Beach. Wyatt's first day in the sunshine state was spent at the beach, fulfilling just one part of Wyatt's wish request. The whole day was spent building sandcastles and playing in the waves.

The next two days were spent at the Kennedy Space Center, where Wyatt's wish of sitting in a spaceship would become reality. He got to see space rockets and even had the opportunity to ride in a shuttle simulator. While he visited the space center, he asked the astronauts many questions about what it's like to explore outer space. He even had the chance to eat lunch with an astronaut!

Wyatt's magical wish experience wasn't quite finished. In addition to visiting the Kennedy Space Center, Wyatt and his family also visited the Magic Kingdom® at the Walt Disney World® Resort. Wyatt had fun attending the Jedi Training Academy, where he learned how to be a Jedi Knight and fight Darth Vadar with a light saber. Wyatt and his family were sad to see this out-of-this-world adventure come to an end, but thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, they will have many memories to cherish for years to come.
