Disneyland, Hong Kong dream vacation for 40 ‘Dar Al Atta’a children sponsored by OHI concludes - but the smiles live on!
Muscat: 19th 2010 – Disneyland – every child’s idea of a dream holiday. And for 40 children from Dar Al Atta’a, this has become a dream come true. Smiles and giggles were the order of the day as the children returned today after the vacation of a lifetime at Disneyland, Hongkong.
