Disney World surprise trip for the family

Dec 17th 2022

My name is SRA Jordan Mccants. I currently on a 6 month deployment. This will be my third holiday season that I have been in training, TDY, or deployed. My two boys, 10 and 4, have been along to go to Disney and this would be the best present for my wife and boys. Christmas is my family’s favorite holiday without me there for the past two years and now this one, it’s been hard on them. I want to make this homecoming extra special.

DISNEYLAND AFTER THE PANDEMIC!

Jul 9th 2022

My name is LS1 Jordan Creath. I am an active duty sailor who has served in the Navy for 15 years. I was on deployment in Kuwait/Iraq and got back in June. We had just moved to California last July and my wife and I wanted to take our kids to Disneyland around Halloween time. A few months after I checked into my command I was being shipped out for deployment. We didn't get to really explore California or do anything because I was always gone for training to prepare for deployment. I was never sure when I was going to come home because I just keep getting extended (thank goodness they didn't keep me out there until September like they wanted to.) It's been an emotional long journey and I just want to show my wife and kids that I appreciate them for all the sacrifices they have given over the past year and a half. I am requesting 4 Disneyland 3-Day Park Hopper tickets so I can take myself, my wife and our two children.

Legoland for my family

Jun 15th 2022

My name is Sgt Jesse Jackson. I met my wife in Fallon, Nevada. We both had a child from our previous marriage and we have one together. We've been married now for 8 years and our boys are growing like crazy. Through most of my surgeries my wife and kids have been there for me while I recovered and I want to show the my appreciation by taking them to Legoland since all 3 of our boys love building with legos and using their imagination. I would need 5 tickets for me, my wife, and our 3 boys.

Disney World Park Hopper for family of 4

Jun 5th 2022

My name is Staff Sergeant Breno Radici. I am currenntly in the Army where I have been serving a total of 20 years with 17 of those being active duty. I started my military journey with the Marine Corps where I served for 11 years before transitioning to the Army with who I am currently deployed. During my time in service, I have been deployed all over the world, from Kuwait, Iraq, Bahrain to Japan, South Korea and Spain. During this time, my wife has held the fort down and raised our two awesome boys (Michael 17 and Tyler 15). This year, Michael will be graduating high school and shipping off to Marine Corps boot camp in the fall. I have always wanted to take my family on a vacation to Disney World. I feel it would be a great show of appreciation to them for sticking by my side and making all the sacrifices they have made during the past 20 years. I would like to make this trip this summer upon returning from this deployment and before my son departs for boot camp. Thank you for your consideration of this wish and have a blessed day.

My Name is Ryan Hopkins. I would like to say thank you for this opportunity. We are going to Florida in late April and we’re hoping to get five 5 day park hoppers to Disney World for myself, my wife, and my 3 children. I just returned from deployment in mid January and these tickets would really help out on our trip. We already have a hotel figured out and are driving there from Pennsylvania.

Disneyland park hopper passes for family

Apr 19th 2022

Hello, I would like to take my wife and two daughters to Disneyland. I just recently returned home from my 3rd deployment, and unfortunately I missed my both of my daughter’s births and every birthdays since due to deployments/training. I would like to take my 5 year old to Disneyland and visit the bippity boppity boutique while enjoying what Disneyland/California adventure has to offer. It would mean a great deal to my daughter as she is the class 5 year old that is obsessed with Disney. My wife and I are high school sweethearts and she has sacrificed so much for us to live this lifestyle. She has wanted to take our daughter for years but due to COVID/ cost issues it hasn’t been possible. We are hoping now it is

Disney World with my family

Mar 21st 2022

My name is SFC Michael Fearing with 22 years of service and being a military dependent I have always dreamed of going somewhere great like Disney World. I know how hard it is to be a dependent myself and know first hand how hard it is to have your father away during a deployment and then try to reconnect. As my deployment is soon coming to an end in Saudi Arabia and now Kuwait I realize it is much harder to be deployed with a family vs my deployments as a single Soldier. I would love to take my family to Disney World and ask you to help us all reconnect as a family.

4 day park hopper ticket to Disneyland/CA Adventure

Mar 15th 2022

I have been in the Navy for 23 years, and over the last 5 I have been mostly separated from my family. I moved overseas for a 2 year unaccompanied tour, before returning home and experiencing extended deployments due to the COVID environment that we now live in. I was deployed for 7 months in 2020, then this year I was deployed for 3.5 months before being redeployed right before Christmas. We currently live in Washington State and will be moving back to the east coast this spring. My wish is to take my family to Disneyland when I return in a few weeks for a belated Christmas. Thank you very much for your time.

Through these deployments and trainings I have missed many holidays and special occasions. My daughter is now 7 and I have only been present for her 2nd birthday.

Family Trip to Disney World

Mar 12th 2022

Hello, My name is Shelbi and I am the mama to two beautiful kiddos and the wife to an amazing wife. I recently returned from a 7 month deployment that was very hard on my family. This was my first time away from my kids for this amount of time. Along with many firsts I missed my daughter's birthday, my wedding anniversary, and my son's first day of school. This was all very difficult for us all to navigate and process. I missed out on a lot. I would love to treat my family to a trip to Disney World. I believe this trip would give us some quality time together to make memories and make up for lost time. I am requesting park hopper passes for the 4 of us and any food vouchers that may be available. I understand if this isn't possible. I will be extremely grateful for whatever we receive. My family and I really appreciate your consideration. Thank you so much. God Bless.

1st Trip to Disney World

Feb 14th 2022

My names is Capt Amanda Burkhardt. I am active duty and have been in the military for 16 years. During these 16 years and current deployment my kids and husband have sacrificed so much to let me serve my country. I would like to surprise them with a family trip to Disney World when I return from the Middle East. I have two 14 year olds (Emma and Lucas), a 9 year old (Allie), an 8 year old (Grace) and little baby Oliver (2 years old). My daughter Grace was born with a rare birth disorder, Arthrogryposis, and as a family we find it hard to travel and go on trips that everyone can participate in. Disney World is the one place where all my kids can participate in the fun. All my kids have sacrificed so much and my husband holds our family together while I’m gone. I would love the opportunity to take my family on a trip to Disney Wold when I return home.

1st Disney World Trip!

Feb 1st 2022

Hi! My name is TSgt Amy Christensen and I'm active duty Air Force with 10 years in. I'm currently on my first deployment. My husband, Cameron, is at home with our two children (ages 2 and 4). He's working full time and taking care of the kids by himself. This is my first time being separated from my children and I'm happy to say they are doing well but it has been difficult for them to understand why I left and why I can't just come home already. I want to plan our first ever family trip to the most magical place on earth! I think it would be good for our family to be able to relax and enjoy each others company after this long separation. I will have missed our wedding anniversary, my daughter's 2nd birthday, my husband's birthday, my birthday and my son's 5th birthday. Our trip to Disney World will be one big celebration! We are requesting three 4 day hoppers (our daughter won't require a ticket due to her age). Thank you so much for the support and consideration!

Discovery Cove Orlando - Signature Dolphin Swim Package + 2 parks for my family

Dec 13th 2021

I love my family! I have been deployed 6 months so far. This deployment has been hard, the first deployment for our two youngest boys. My previous deployment was when their next older sister was just a baby. Our oldest son is away at college, and our second oldest, our daughter Madyson, died in a car accident 6 years ago. Looking forward to reconnecting to my wife and kids, and sharing an adventure with them. I would like to take my family for a day at Discovery Cove swimming with the dolphins. I would take my wife and the 4 youngest kids. 6 tickets in total. We would like to get the SIGNATURE DOLPHIN SWIM PACKAGE + 2 PARKS option. We would like to go over Christmas break, December 13th, 2021.

Thank you to all of the wonderful donors that donated to my Hero's Wish. My family was able to enjoy a day at Discovery Cove and swim with the dolphin, name MaRaya. After swimming with MaRaya we spent the rest of the day snorkeling and floating on the lazy river. This was such a great experience for my family. Our pass into discovery Cove also included a pass into Seaworld. My family really enjoyed going to the dolphin show, orca show and the sea lion and otter show. Thanks again for the donations to grant my Hero's Wish and helping my family make memories that will last a lifetime.

I am missing many important occasions while being away, such as three birthdays, anniversary, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and not to mention school events and the day to day memories being made while my children grow up. It is so hard to be away from them during these times. I would love to be able to take them to Disneyland upon my return in April to make new memories with them all again. We are HUGE Disney fans and cannot think of a better way to reconnect than with some Disney Magic! I am requesting 5 Disneyland 3 Day Park Hopper tickets so we can all go, myself, my wife and three children.

Thank you to those generous folks who provided donations so that my family could spend time with each other at Disneyland. This has been a long time coming… returning from Afghanistan to be met by COVID and wondering if we would get a great / relatively similar experience upon arriving to Disney 19 months later… it’s been interesting. After Day 2, I can tell you that we are having a blast and are super fortunate / thankful for you all! We certainly remain… Semper Fidelis!
 
Spring Break Universal Studios Orlando

Oct 24th 2021

My name is MSgt Mark Goenen. This is my 8th deployment during my career. I am currently serving as Fire Chief for a newly established "bare base" in Saudi Arabia. When we arrived on the ground there were less than 20 tents and no capability for Fire Emergency Services. Over our 180+ day deployment we will have built a base that will accommodate 2K personnel on a permanent basis. This deployment will see me miss 3 birthdays, wedding anniversary, and the winter holidays. I was chosen for this deployment on a very short notice, I had under one month to prepare to deploy and make sure the girls were taken care of during my absence. It would be a wonderful gift to take my girls to Universal Studios Orlando, (they are HUGE Harry Potter fans) as my girls have all been working very hard in school and life to overcome my absence for 6 months.

Thank you to everyone who donated to our amazing experience at Universal Orlando. The generosity you showed us was on full display as we walked into the magical Harry Potter attraction areas and I saw the smiles light up on the faces of my girls. This trip was a culmination of my military service and a lifetime of their sacrifices and hardships and we are eternally grateful for this experience. Thank you. Mark, Cindy, Alyssa, Jamie, and Katie.
 
Disney World Florida Family Vacation

Oct 18th 2021

Hello, my name is SPC Trenton Davis, I am an MP currently deployed to the Middle East as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. The only downside to serving my country was leaving my beautiful wife behind. As she has been so supportive during this deployment, I’d love nothing more than to be able to take her on a Disney world vacation to Florida. Providing all goes well, I am set to return home October 2020. I am requesting 2, four day park hopper tickets to Disney World in Orlando, Florida. I want to ensure she knows how much I appreciate the tremendous support and love I have received from her. I genuinely appreciate all the support and assistance from those donating to these causes. Your contributions mean more than you know to soldiers. Thank you.

Take my daughter to Disney World

Oct 11th 2021

Hello, my name is Maricella. I would love to be able to take my daughter to Disney World during her fall break in October 2021. I am an Army veteran. I deployed to Afghanistan twice OEF 2010-2011 where I earned 2 purple hearts and OEF 2012-2013. I was medically discharged from the military due to my injuries. My injuries include TBI, PTSD, anxiety, depression, hearing loss, memory loss/issues, and an injury to my neck that caused mobility issues. I am 100% non-workable, total disabled Veteran, so it's harder to save and takes longer. My daughter is 5 years old and it's her dream to go to Disney World. She deserves to go because she is the sweetest, most helpful girl. Even though I'm not with my daughter's father, I would love to include him in this once in a lifetime memory. I'm requesting three tickets to Disney World. I thank you for your consideration and thanks for all you do.

Post IA Family Disneyland trip

Sep 8th 2021

Hi everyone, my name is CTM1 Estrada I'm currently in the middle of an IA deployment in the middle-east and although this is my 4th deployment. it's the first time that I have deployed since I had my son (currently 3 years old). So, those of you that have experienced this can understand that this deployment has been by far the toughest one. I have been wanting to take my son to Disneyland for a while, but I wanted to wait until he was a little bigger so that he could actually enjoy the park. He will be almost 4 by the time I come back, so I think that it will be perfect timing to take him when I come back from deployment. I'm requesting 3, 4 day park hopper passes to Disneyland so that my son, wife and I can enjoy some quality time after being apart for more than 7 months.

Thank you so much for making my wish come true! I personally love Disneyland, and ever since my son was born I was counting the days till I could take him to it, and because of his condition (autism) I wanted to wait a little longer to ensure that he would enjoy this wonderful experience. Yesterday was an amazing day for all of us and he was very happy to see Mickey and friends, but without a doubt the highlight of his day was when he saw Lightning McQueen. Once again, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

Post Deployment Disney World Trip

Aug 23rd 2021

My name is SSgt Mangrum I have just returned home from a 7 month deployment from Bagram Afghanistan. My wife has held down our household and navigated the COVID pandemic by herself while caring for our two children ages 2 and 4. This deployment has been extremely tough but I am grateful we made it through. The last several months have been filled with challenges and changes. As soon as I returned home we PCS’d from Louisiana to Colorado. My wish is to take a family trip to visit Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL as My wife and kids deserve this trip. I am requesting four 5-Day Park Hopper plus tickets to Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. I am hoping to take them on a much needed trip this fall to Disney World in Florida for some family time and a stress reliever. We’ve never taken a family vacation and this trip would mean the world to my family and I. Thank you for your consideration and God bless.

Family of 6 Disney World Wish

Aug 1st 2021

My name is SPC Andrew Boktor. I have been in the Army National Guard since high school and this September will make 9 years total. I was on a 15 month deployment because my return date continued to get delayed due to COVID 19. This was my first deployment and it was one of the hardest yet rewarding things to do in my life. I missed holidays, special occasions and the passing of my grandmother and uncle. It is a honor to serve our great country. However, I could not have done that without my amazing support system back home. My wife, mother, father, brother & sister-in law, all made me stronger during the deployment. My wife’s family took me on my first Disney trip 9 years ago and we all enjoyed the extraordinary time together. My father in law has recently been diagnosed with a debilitating disease called Inclusion Body Myositis. His time of being ambulatory may come to an end sooner than we all would like. I just want to be able to give back to my family as much as they have given to me. This is the first time I have been away from my wife (we went to middle school, high school, and college together) and it took a stressful toll on both of us. She is my rock. I just want to show my appreciation for my family by taking them on a trip to Disney World in Orlando, FL. I am asking for 4 day tickets for 6 members of my family. Their strength and prayers helped bring me home safe. With all the negativity going on during a pandemic and deployment, my family deserves some magic and joy. We are truly humbled and thankful to be considered for this wish fulfillment. Thank you VETTIX for all you do!

Wicked at the Overture Center

Jul 21st 2021

My name is TSgt Huberr Hansen. I have just returned home from a deployment to Bagram Air Field, Afghanistan. My girlfriend wants nothing more than tickets to Wicked, the musical at the Overture center in Madison, WI. I would love nothing more than to surprise her with front row tickets for Christmas. The prices are far more than I can afford. She has said for the last several years that if Wicked ever comes back to Madison that she wants to go. She is a wonderful woman, with twin five year olds that I am helping to raise as my own. While I was deployed she kept it together, mowing the grass, shoveling snow, looking after my house and my dog. She deserves something truly special.

Family Trip to Universal Studios Orlando

Jul 10th 2021

Hi my name is Misael, I am a disabled army veteran. I enlisted in 2010 in the US ARMY as a medic and was attached to a infantry regiment 2-4INF 10th mountain bravo company where I deployed to Afghanistan in 2011 and was seriously wounded by a suicide bomber. I am blind in my right eye and have several herniated disk in my neck. I spent about a year at Walter Reed recovering from my wound and was later discharged on a medical retirement. Traveling has always been a passion of mine, unfortunately, I am on a fixed budget which makes it difficult to afford such trips especially with a family. I would love my kids to experience the thrill of roller coasters and see the sights that Universal has to offer.

I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. My family and I had so many laughs and screams. I never thought I would have so much fun. It means the world to me especially because we came on the anniversary date of my injury in Afghanistan, great way to replace that bad memory with a good one. To everyone who donated thank you, my service to this great country would be meaningless if it wasn’t for kind wonderful fellow Americans like yourself! I can not write enough words to express my gratitude. Thank you once again for making a dream come true for me and my family.

Hello My name is Petty Officer Brandon Moore. I am currently serving Active Duty with the United States Coast Guard and have been for the last 11 Years. My Wife and I have 4 beautiful Children together. I have been deployed 12 months out of the last 24 months. It is hard explaining to my little ones that I am going to be gone for a while. I have missed countless Holidays, Birthdays, and most of all my kids growing up. My wish is to take my wife and 3 kids to Disney World in hopes that I can recreate some missed memories! Thanks in advance!

Universal Orlando (Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure)

Jun 14th 2021

I am a SGT with the South Carolina Army National Guard. I have been in for 12 years, and I am currently in the Middle East on my 2nd deployment. Due to train up at the NTC in California and Ft. Bliss, TX I have been away from my family since June of 2019, and I should be scheduled to be home sometime in October. When not serving my country, I am serving my community. I am a Class II Officer in South Carolina and help run a shift at a County Detention Center. So, between military and law enforcement, I am almost always away from home. I have a wonderful wife (Caroline), and we have three great children (Caitlin 11, Caleb 10, and Cooper 3). My family has always sacrificed so much of themselves for me whenever duty has called, and they have done so selflessly. They allow me to go with no remorse or regrets, only love and support! They lift me up and encourage me along my path! While all the while, they continue on with their life while I am away. My wife works full time, and still manages to take care of our house and family! My two oldest children always willingly step up to assist her, and my youngest child, through the excellent examples of his older siblings, does what he can to help around the house as well! They have grown and matured so quickly and deserve to take time to be children and enjoy themselves! I would like to take my family on a 4-day trip to Universal Orlando (Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure). I would like to request a total of 5, 4 day 2-park park-to-park tickets for Me, my wife, and our three children. If anyone deserves to be blessed with such a trip, it is my Wife and children, because when I serve, they serve, and they hardly ever get the recognition! So, I want to show them how much they are appreciated, and let that know that their sacrifices, and their love for me, all military and law personnel, and their country has not gone unnoticed. I am wanting to take them in late December because my daughter's birthday is on December 23rd. And I figured that this would be a great Birthday for her, as well as a great Christmas for her and the rest of my family. I know this cannot make up for any missed time but hope that it can help instill a memory of joy for them to remember for years to come.
