On Sunday, 3-year-old Zariyah Walls and her family learned that her wish to go to Disney Land is coming true. Zariyah was diagnosed at 16 months with an autoimmune disorder that leaves her defenseless against infections and requires constant doctors visits. But that doesn’t stop her from doing what she loves: dancing.
She was greeted under the Viva Vision canopy with her name shining in lights by Fremont Street Experience executives, who are hosting her wish. The Step Up Academy of the Arts dance team performed a flash dance to Zariyah’s favorite song “Juju on that Beat,” and two showgirls wearing Zariyah’s favorite color purple posed for photos.
