5-year-old's wish becomes reality after visiting Morgan's Wonderland

SAN ANTONIO – People from all over the country are in San Antonio for Fiesta, but one little boy is in the city from Kentucky to enjoy a different party. He was granted his one true wish to visit his perfect place: Morgan's Wonderland.

Hudson Brown used a wheelchair to get around while making his trip around Morgan’s Wonderland. It’s the first theme park designed for those with special needs and was a perfect fit for 5-year-old Hudson’s day of fun.

Hudson’s first stop was a specially designed carousel. While the ride may seem tame to some, it was transformative for Hudson and his parents.

“I'm gonna cry. He's never been able to get on anything fun, basically. No rides. Never been on a swing,” said Amy Brown, Hudson’s mother.

Hudson’s smile spoke volumes Thursday.

The rare nervous system disorder Hudson suffers from interfered with his ability to walk and talk and requires 24/7 care.

A simple day at an amusement park would be almost impossible anywhere else, but at Morgan’s Wonderland, Hudson’s dreams became a reality.

“It's not easy being the parent of a special needs child. You learn there are people who are awesome and who are loving and caring and kind,” Amy Brown said.

To be granted a day of fun, lasting memories and a break from the full-time regimen of medical care made Amy Brown’s wish day, too.

Make a Wish Central and South Texas has granted more than 3,800 wishes since it started in 1984. The next stop for Hudson’s family is SeaWorld.
