Having bravely battled acute lymphoblastic leukemia, Heison found inspiration in McQueen’s speed and determination. Heison isn’t just a big fan of Lightning, but he found a source of strength in him! And when word of his wish reached Hong Kong Disneyland, the park’s team became the ultimate pit crew, working tirelessly to make it a reality.


Heison’s day at the park wasn’t just about meeting McQueen. His passion for racing extends beyond the animated world, and to his delight, he also got to meet renowned racecar driver Jonathan Hui! Imagine the thrill of not only cruising alongside Lightning McQueen in a special parade, but also sharing the spotlight with a real-life racing champion!


The cheers of 400 spectators, including fellow wish families, medical professionals, and Disney VoluntEARS, echoed through the park as Heison lived his dream. This heartwarming event serves as a beautiful reminder of the power of Disney wishes. They don’t just grant desires, they uplift spirits and create lasting memories, especially for children facing immense challenges. When you combine the magic of Disney with the power of these wishes, the result is pure joy, exactly when it’s needed most. As Lightning McQueen himself would say, “Ka-Chow!”

What a special wish come true for a special kid!
