    Recently my friend's 7 year old son passed away from cancer, we want to send her to Disney World to spend time with her remaining son, 5 yrs, what do they say they're celebrating? Is there anything Disney can do to make their trip a happy memory?

    Hi Elizabeth!

    How incredibly wonderful of you!  What a touching thing to do for a friend that's been through the loss of a child.  First of all, please send my thoughts and love to your friend and her family at this time.  As a parent, I could feel no greater loss. 

    I would explain that they are celebrating the memory of a lost loved one:  life, love, and new memories.  I would absolutely have it noted on their reservations.  Disney will do every thing they can to make new, happy memories for her and her son and toss a little pixie dust their way.  If it is either of their first visits, please have that noted as well.

    I hope they have a magical vacation!
