Still mad after 30 years

My son wanted to go to Disney World since we already went to Disneyland on a family outing. We lived 2.5 hours away. They denied his request saying he was too young to know the difference. He was 3 going on 4 and very excited about going somewhere warm and we were excited that MAW would be able to grant a wish we could not afford to do. We were given a limo ride to the airport which was nice but when we got down there, we were put into a cheap motel with the view of the wall of the building next door, the pool wasnt open due to construction, we were not given a rental car to get around. We had to use taxis which of course did not have a car seat. They gave us a few food vouchers from the motels restaurant, which was difficult to obtain food that he could eat. There wasnt even a fridge in the motel room. We got dropped off at the gate and had to walk through a flooded parking lot just to get to the gate. It did rain in Southern California and a lot! The least they could have done was to put us up in the Disneyland hotel, but nope! We had friends from the same chapter get granted a lovely house fully stocked on the lake in Disney World, a rental car, boat and fishing gear. When we tried to get some answers after the fact we were completely ignored and made to feel like we were ungrateful. Well my son died at the age of 12 and I hope this doesnt happen to anyone.

Children being denied wishes due to vaccine mandate

This company is a total fraud. I keep reading about children being denied their wishes. The latest is this little 4 year old boy with cancer that was denied his trip to Disney world because he is unvaccinated. They need to follow the science, for 1 the supreme court called the vaccine mandate unconstitutional, 2nd the vaccine isn't even available for children under 5, 3rd children are no susceptible to the virus and they have a 99.99% survival rate. Please look up the number of deaths in 2 years for children which have not exceeded 600 in total. The flu has killed more children in one year than this virus.

User's recommendation: Don't donate to this company.

THE FACTS: The child from Staten Island, New York, was still offered a wish — just not one involving air travel or large crowds.

Grant all children their wishes and stop using Covid as an excuse.

Cancelled wish after it was granted!

My niece was granted her Disney wish two weeks before we are getting ready to leave all packed up Covid hit understandably got canceled we said we have no problem waiting until things got cleared up we have been nothing but hounded with offering us for my needs to take an iPad instead of the trip and after year said she will not be granted that wish no more she could pick something else if she would like how do you tell a five-year-old they no longer get to go to Disney after the 2 1/2 years of chemo they went through and were promised it. we even said like lets go a different way we dont have to stay at the Make-A-Wish place and we dont have to have all these extras lets just get her there and they offered her an iPad!

User's recommendation: don’t donate to this cause they don’t actually care about the children they just want to get them in and out as soon as possible!

Yes happened to my son & we were waiting 5 years for wish to be granted when he was well enough to go. They had cancelled our trip a month before going. Now 2 years later they offered a “local” wish to get the wish granted since my son isn’t vaccinated.

Make A Wish Nightmare

We just got back from my son’s Make A Wish trip to Disney World and it was a disaster. Due to poor planning he never got to fulfill his wish. He spent the majority his 5 days in Orlando at the villa hunting for lizards and blowing bubbles. On the few occasions we...

I will not be donating to this particular charity again. How dare they dupe their contributers.

But to treat sick and often terminal children like I've read in these reviews it's beyond reprehensible.Shameful. Bet your pockets are lined pretty good huh?

Make a wish should be awesome trips catering to the sick child and their family. You create nightmares.
