A girl who underwent a heart transplant was treated to a “magical” weekend at Disneyland Paris with her parents.
Three year old Ellie Beale was handed a surprise ticket to Disneyland Paris’s 20th anniversary celebrations and the launch of its winter festivities courtesy of Disney and were given VIP treatment for the whole weekend.
This was the family’s first time to Disney. “None of us had been before and it was quite an eye-opening experience. It was absolutely fantastic for Ellie. She had a wonderful time.” said her mom Mrs Beale.
Ellie was a guest of Great Ormond Street Hospital, where she has been a patient since she was 20 months old. Disney has supported the London hospital since 2008. Ellie was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy, a condition in which the heart becomes enlarged. Her illness is thought to have been caused by a virus that attacked her heart and made it so weak it was unable to pump enough blood round her body.
The family was joined by three other patients and their families and stayed in different hotels each night. They were also given a tour guide as well as VIP access to many of the attractions.
Her Dad Mr Beale said: “Right from the check-in through to the moment we got back they went absolutely overboard to look after us. Nothing was ever too much for them. Ellie is really into things like Disney princesses and Tinkerbell is probably her favorite thing. She loved the whole magic of it.”
