“She gazes up at the night sky, dreaming of blue lagoons, magical moons and the incredible adventures she has had. But tonight, like no other has magic in the air, anything can happen. Imagine flying with Wendy and friends to Neverland where a life-changing adventure awaits, where time stands still, and the impossible may become possible. And if you close your eyes and believe – you can make things happen.”
