Oprah Winfrey is at it again: Continuing the "wildest dreams" theme of last season's Oprah, the talk show host is making more wishes come true.

What's her latest miracle? Fulfilling Houston gym teacher Mona Quinney's dream to take her 68 first graders – most from low-income families – to Disneyland, PEOPLE reports in its upcoming issue.

"Help them forget all of the sadness in their little lives," Quinney wrote in a letter to Winfrey.

On Aug. 12 the TV talk show host granted Quinney's wish, even hopping aboard rides like the Mad Tea Party with the giddy kids as part of Disneyland’s 50th anniversary.

"I'm still on clouds," says Quinney, who joined her students at the amusement park.

The excursion will air this fall as part of Winfrey's 20th- anniversary season.

"After this trip I know these kids went home with happy memories to last a lifetime," says Winfrey.
