How One Man's Love for His Daughter Led to "Morgan's Wonderland"
The World's First ULTRA-Accessible Theme Park
While splashing in a hotel pool in 2006, Gordon Hartman’s daughter, Morgan, approached some children. Unable to speak, she tapped a ball at them eager to play, but they backed away cautiously.
The moment both saddened Hartman and made him determined to find a place where people like Morgan, who have cognitive or physical disabilities, can revel to their heart’s content.
“Morgan’s smile, her hugs, her ability to give so much of herself was her way of inspiring her father to take a different approach to the second half of his life,” Hartman said, while speaking at a school graduation in 2011.
