Make-A-Wish recipient Linden Bradley, who today is cancer-free, was just surprised with the “key to the kingdom”!

The six-year-old boy from British Columbia, Canada, wished to open Disneyland park for the day. He opened the gates with Mickey Mouse and Disney Ambassador Justin Rapp, counting down from 10!

“He’s been through more than I think any of us combined have been through,” said his mom, Julia Bradley. “Hopefully, this will be the memory that he remembers instead of all the bad times with cancer—he got to open Disneyland!”

Take a look at this special wish—one of approximately 700 the Disneyland Resort fulfills each year.
