In a soaring collaboration, Disney and LIFT made holiday dreams a reality at 30,000 feet, bringing tears of joy and unforgettable moments to young hearts.

 

Johannesburg, South Africa (02 December 2023) – Imagine sharing your Christmas dreams and wishes while boarding a flight in Joburg and having them come true when landing in Cape Town. Well, for the kids on flight GE110 yesterday, that is exactly what happened!

Disney and LIFT partnered to extend their #MayYourWishesComeTrue campaign and it brought all the feels!

The magic began at OR Tambo International Airport, where Disney’s Wish agents, armed with compassion and a touch of fairy dust, approached kids travelling on LIFT’s flight. The mission? Simple yet profound: to discover the children’s three wishes for Christmas.

As the wishes were whispered with hope and excitement, Disney’s Wish agents in Johannesburg swiftly communicated the dreams to their counterparts in Cape Town. What happened next was nothing short of enchanting – a spree of joyous shopping to ensure that the gifts were not just imagined dreams but tangible realities, ready and waiting for the eager young hearts upon touchdown at Cape Town International Airport, a mere 2 hours later.

The grand reveal unfolded as the children disembarked from the plane, their eyes wide with anticipation. To their delight, the wishes had not only been heard but also granted.

From cuddly Disney plush toys to gleaming bicycles, from beloved Barbies to the coveted PlayStation 5s – the surprises were as diverse as the dreams themselves. Tears of joy flowed, and happy faces lit up the airport. It was a spectacle of emotions, a beautiful symphony of gratitude, surprise, and pure happiness. In that moment, the partnership between Disney and LIFT went above and beyond the ordinary and created a genuine connection that touched the hearts of everyone involved.

This magical episode marked the kickoff of LIFT’s 12 days of Christmas celebration and added a sprinkle of fairy-tale wonder to Disney’s ongoing #MayYourWishesComeTrue campaign.

The collaboration not only brought smiles to the faces of the young dreamers but also showcased the power of goodwill and the joy that can be found in making someone else’s dreams come true.
