The little girl who survived a fire that killed the rest of her family is going to Disney World.

Eight-year-old Safyre said she only wanted Christmas cards for Christmas.

She's been getting cards by the thousands. Now, thanks to a friend's nomination, she's also getting an all-expense paid Disney trip through a non-profit organization called Baking Memories 4 Kids.

"Obviously this trip can't take away all the pain but we're so honored at making memories for kids," said Frank Squeo, Baking Memories 4 Kids Founder. "To have planned all this well in advance of everything and I'm so blessed that we bare able to give this family and see how beautiful Safyre is. This is the Christmas story.

Her aunt says it was very hard to keep the secret from Safyre and they are so excited she'll be able to go.
