SPRING, Texas -- You may remember Alexis Barnes of Spring. When word spread that no one showed up to her 6th birthday party, the community threw her a party for the ages.
More than 1,000 people showed up and showered her with gifts, including a trip to Disney World to watch the World Dance Competition with Dance Dynamics.
Alexis just returned from that trip, and her family says she had a blast. She sat in the cockpit of the airplane, and United announced her being on the flight. Her family says she got to go backstage during performances at Disney World, and Hollywood Studios opened up the park after hours for her and all of the dancers at the competition.
They also say Alexis has become quite the celebrity, as strangers have asked to have their pictures taken with her.
