Hi! I’m Joy, and I'm proud to be the butterfly mascot for Morgan's Wonderland, where everyone can "spread their wings and soar to new heights" of fun with family and friends.
Since I’m a butterfly, I don’t talk, but I love to dance and make people smile. Even more I love having my picture taken. So come and see me at Morgan’s Wonderland!
