Disneyland the unhappiest place on Earth for dying six-year-old

A terminally ill six-year-old has had the Make-A-Wish trip to Disneyland from hell.

Layton Chapman has quadriplegic cerebral palsy and epilepsy, and as his "last and only wish" was granted a four-day trip to Disneyland Paris, the Daily Mail reports.

But nothing went right from the very start. When Layton and his family got to Paris, they were told a ticket mix-up meant they'd arrived two days late, cutting their holiday in half.

A separate mix-up however meant they couldn't enter the park at all, so were forced to spend two days milling about in the village.

Disney apologised, and to make up for the blunders gave the family a 'fast-track' pass so they wouldn't have to wait in lengthy queues. But staff at the park said the pass didn't work, and when the family went to customer services to complain, they were turned away.

"It was so embarrassing getting marched past all the other families, like we'd done something wrong," Layton's mother Danielle Huart told the Mail.

When Layton's birthday rolled around, the restaurant they were booked at told them because of yet another mix-up, there was no table for the family and no cake for the birthday boy.

Eventually the kinks were ironed out, and Layton got to spend a day-and-a-half exploring Disneyland Paris - only to be knocked on the head by a clumsy Donald Duck.

"He still smiled all the way through but this is probably his only chance at a holiday. This was his last and only wish he will get and it was ruined," said Ms Huart.

Disneyland Paris told the paper it was "closely working with the family to resolve the situation".
