MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A little girl's dream came true Tuesday night at Riverwalk Stadium. 

The special surprise was revealed to the Montgomery eight-year-old during a Montgomery Biscuits game. Zy'terriah Grigsby has been diagnosed with Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, an allergic reaction to medication, and her dream is to go to Disney World. 

Because of "Magic Moments" and Ball, Ball, Matthews & Novak law firm, Zy'terriah will get to take that trip to the Happiest Place on Earth!

Zy'terriah's mother talked a bit about her daughter's rare skin disorder. 

"It happened so quick," said Shantelle Grigsby. "We had no idea what was going on. She was in the hospital for two months, but God is good. She is doing amazing, she's doing a lot better than what all the doctors thought she would do." 

Zy'terriah and her family will take the trip this summer, but if it was up to Zy'terriah, they'd leave tomorrow. 

"It will be great," she said with a smile. "I want to see all the characters." 

And Zy'terriah's favorite character? Minnie Mouse!
