- Dayton, prince charming

Twelve-year-old wish kid Miliana has had a seizure disorder all her life, but she handles it with the strength and grace of true royalty. That's why her one true wish was to be a princess at her own royal ball!

The magical event brought the princess and her guests to an enchanted land far, far away. And in this kingdom, Miliana met her very own Prince Charming.

From the moment she arrived at The Royal Hawaiian, a Luxury Collection Resort, and laid eyes on her prince, Miliana beamed with joy. Together, they entered the grand ballroom and were welcomed by family, friends and classic storybook princesses that she had longed to meet in person! Other attendees of the ball included Hawaii state pageant queens and Girl Scouts of Hawai'i Troop 789 who raised funds for Miliana's wish.

Guests enjoyed tea, mini desserts and delicious tea party sandwiches to the soothing sounds of a live string duet. Every detail was accounted for and it was truly the perfect setting for Miliana’s royal ball.

But perhaps Miliana’s favorite part of the day was spending time with her prince who never left her side. She finally felt like a real princess, like the ones she had seen in her storybooks. Wearing her beautiful pink dress and sparkling tiara, Miliana shined with beauty next to her prince.

“She really was the princess she always wanted to be,” said the prince. It was a truly special day that will forever be in the hearts of this princess, her family and all who witnessed her wish come true.
