Kidd's Kids arrive back home after fun-filled trip to Disney World

Posted: Updated:

Kidd's Kids are back in North Texas after a fun-filled five-day trip to Disney World.

The trip was the first since the passing of the charity's founder and DJ, Kidd Kraddick.

Upon returning, the children were a little tired, but all smiles. It was hard to tell who had a better time -- the kids or the parents, and it served as a time for them to bond as a family and forget doctor appointments and treatments.

"Oh, it was the best trip ever," said dad Bobby Vickery. "I don't know how to explain it. There are no words."

A total of 54 families with chronically or terminally ill children got to go on the trip, which meant hanging out with Goofy, Donald Duck and Daisy.

"They really try to figure out what the kids want to do and make sure it happens for them…find every little opportunity to make the kids dream come true," said Joe Newman, who went on the trip. "They really do."

Kidd's Kids made the trip happen with DJs, staff and a medical team tagging along.

Kidd Kraddick's daughter, Caroline, last went on the trip 10 years ago at age 13. Now, she's taking over the charity for her famous dad, and says the kids help heal her sadness.

"I haven't laughed like I've laughed this trip in months, so my heart is full right now," she said. "I'm a happy girl."

Dad Chris Chilsm and his daughter Chelsea competed in an American Idol contest together at the park, which was one of countless experiences they'll cherish forever.
