Julie Murphy of Oregon City, whose Portland lemonade stand was shut down last month for not having a food safety license and reopened a short time later with the help of radio station KRSK 105.1 and Les Schwab Tire Centers, said she plans to use her profits to bankroll a trip to Disneyland with mother Maria Fife, The (Portland) Oregonian reported Tuesday.

The stand was reopened with the apologies of Multnomah County Chairman Jeff Cogen, who said health inspectors have now been told to use "professional discretion" in enforcing food-safety laws meant for adult businesses.

"We just really appreciate everything that everyone did," Fife said. "She got her lemonade stand, she had a good experience and that's all she wanted in the first place. And she met some really cool people."
