Pocahontas and Princess Riley from the Make a Wish Village.
On an ordinary rainy day just like any other in Walt Disney World Resort in 2011, Princess Riley stumbled into the empty Animation Building at Disney’s Hollywood Studios where she bumped into none other than Pocahontas and her best friend Meeko. Riley was a make a wish child. Her family explained her ongoing battles with cancer and stated that doctor’s didn’t know how much time she had left. For 30 minutes, Riley skipped around the building hand in hand with Pocahontas laughing and telling stories - she even played tagged with Meeko! A little girl with not much time left yet all the joy and happiness in the world. When it was time to go, Pocahontas and Riley hugged each other for a very long time. Riley looked up at Pocahontas and told her it was the best day ever to which Pocahontas replied “you’ll always be in my heart little one”. Riley left and the two never saw each other again.
As of February 6th, 2013, Riley has been in remission from her cancer.
