Hayden's Jack Sparrow Wish

Hayden meets Jack Sparrow

Hayden loves all the Disney movies but his favourites are the Pirates of the Caribbean films.

Hayden really deserved to have some fun after completing his treatment for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. He wished to visit Disneyland Paris so that he could go on the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ ride and meet his favourite character Jack Sparrow.

We were absolutely delighted to make his wish happen.

Even before they arrived in Disneyland, Hayden and his sister were treated like VIP’s on the plane. They were invited for a special visit to the cockpit where they met the captain. It was the first time he had been on a plane and it was the start of a wonderful time.

Hayden spent three very busy days with his family enjoying all the attractions in Disneyland but there was one big highlight for him…

When they were outside the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ ride Hayden spotted Jack Sparrow. Jack came over and said “you must be Hayden!”. Mum said “the look on his little face was priceless!”

Jack then escorted him and his family past all the crowds to the ride and sat in the front row with him! Hayden was over the moon! The whole trip was magical. Mum said “It was a holiday he’ll never forget.”
