13-year-old Make-A-Wish girl surprised with a Disney cruise

Local News

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – A young teen’s Disney wish has been granted thanks to pilots at FedEx.

The new hire class raised money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Friday, they surprised 13-year-old Uzarya with a Disney cruise. The surprise came complete with a “castaway king” theme at FedEx Event Center at Shelby Farms.

“Right now, she’s in a simulator with one of our captains and they are flying to a specific tropical island. So when they land, they will taxi and we have a large display that will say welcome aboard to Castway King, and then we will tell her that her wish has been granted,” said Charlotte Gray, an Instructional Design Specialist with FedEx.

Uzarya will be leaving on Monday for her cruise.
