Amazingly fun and heartbreaking fact: The little girl who sings the beginning of Wishes, had a Make A Wish wish to sing a song in a Disney Fireworks show. Her wish was granted. About three weeks later, she passed away. The show was then dedicated to her and named, you guessed it, Wishes.

Awww. Very sad. But I'm glad she got her wish. She must have been so happy to have achieved her goal. Rest in peace little one. - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #19 9:13PM

Yay for not being like that jerk of a dad. Not sure if you heard about that a few weeks ago. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #4 8:46PM
Wow. I always sing that song in a little baby voice. I will probably bawl my eyes out this november when i hear it again, ill never hear it the same way again ๐Ÿ’”โค๐Ÿ™ - Boardwalkgirl  55.9 #101 8:59PM
Omg..I didn't know that. That is a heartbreaking fact. So sad. I really hope they keep wishes around for awhile in her honor - mickeynme  177.5 #52 9:26PM
That's really sweet that they did that. The company is amazing for things like that. I heard a story of a little girl w/cancer visiting Disney w/her family & while they were there their camera broke (w/all the pics from their whole vacation on it) Their vacation was almost done,so Disney personally gave them a new camera & closed the MK just for that family and filled it up w/brand new memories of her w/the characters and they had the rides to themselves and the whole deal. Disney is simply amazing when it comes to those children and matters such as that - mickeynme  177.5 #52 9:32PM
I just re-read ur post and it made me tear up thinking of that song:( I'll never hear it the same way again. It'll be more meaningful now. Thanks for sharing - mickeynme  177.5 #52 9:37PM
She also sang in Disneyland's "Remember... Dreams Come True!" - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.8 #62 9:44PM

Yeah Wishes was recorded in 2003 (October 2003 debut), then they recut it for disneyland's 50th for Remember. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #4 10:49PM
Since 2003? Hmmm. - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.8 #62 9:29AM
This just gave me chills. That is so sad. Wishes is our family's favorite fireworks. My kids always ain't that part. - Disneyaddict  374.7 #606 10:16PM
