  • Sariyah's wish to visit Disney World is soon, but her wish granters wanted to surprise with a special gift. All Sariyah wanted to do was to drive her friends around the playground for the 30 minutes a week she could be outside due to her illness, so she received the best surprise: a new princess car! Thanks to Kid Trax and Pacific Cycle for helping to bring about the cutest smile on Sariyah's face and for making the wait to meet Disney princesses all the more tough!
