For a glimpse into her magical Wish please read the lovely write up from the family:

We have been back from Disneyworld, Florida nearly a month now and we still haven't come back down to Earth ! We would like to say a massive thank you  to all the team for everything you have done for our family. Every day of the holiday  was better than the last and we will be forever grateful to all the staff and fundraisers who made the trip possible.
We visited Disneyworld,Universal, SeaWorld and Discovery Cove. There are too many magical moments to mention but swimming with the dolphins and seeing Chloe's face when she met Minnie Mouse had to be top of the list !
Chloe was born with a very rare neurological condition called Aicardi Syndrome which affects around 20 girls in the U.K. The condition occurs because of an abnormality during brain development due to a gene defect on the x- chromosome  which has left Chloe with learning disabilities and can not talk but she didn't need to use words for us to see she had an amazing time !
Chloe is Disney mad and we couldn't have asked for a better wish for her.
We had kept the trip a secret from the children for 6 months and only told them 30 minutes before we were due to leave for the airport, it would be an understatement to say they were shocked ! We had such a wonderful time and have made lots of  memories which wouldn't have been possible without you.
Thank  you again

Miranda, Mick, Chloe, Alex & Ryan x
