ANAHEIM, Calif. (KTLA) — A little girl’s wish became reality at Disneyland.

Alyssa Brown, 4, stopped at Snow White’s wishing well and her thoughts turned to her dad, a Marine serving in Afghanistan.

Since Marine Lt. Brow’s deployment, Alyssa and her baby brother have had to get by with hugs from their “deployment daddy doll.”

She told Snow White, “I wish with all my heart that my daddy would come home.”

And, as everyone knows, dreams do come true at Disneyland.

When Alyssa opened her eyes, her dad was right there.

The Browns are happy their surprise worked. They now say Alyssa tells them she would like to wish for a puppy.
