McKenna May, a four-year-old from Ohio who was diagnosed with leukemia in 2010, will not be getting a trip to Walt Disney World via the Make-A-Wish foundation. The reason? Her father has refused to sign off on the vacation, and Make-A-Wish rules state two parents must sign for a minor's trip.

Cinderella's Wishing Well

Dotted around the Walt Disney World resort, in amongst the hustle and bustle of ride and lines, and shopping, and crowds moving to and fro are some very special places. They are perfect little spots to sit down and take 5 minutes for yourself, to be in the moment and soak it all in. You'll find one such 5 minute spot located down below Cinderella Castle on the pathway to Tomorrowland, off to the side sits a charming little alcove that's home to a wishing well.
