Following my earlier story on a certain Peter Pan at Disneyland who gave a kid some wonderful life advice, I decided to delve even deeper and try to find examples of other individuals experienced something magical while visiting the Magic Kingdom.
Coming across a post on Reddit, I was overjoyed to find that someone who worked at Walt Disney World in Florida had hosted an AMA, answering other users' questions and encouraging others to share their fond memories.
Beginning the post, user too-tsunami invited readers to participate, saying:
Hey guys, I worked at The Walt Disney World Resort as Mulan, Pocahontas, & Silvermist the Fairy for about four years. Ask me anything!
To prove her identity, she posted three photographs of herself as various Disney heroines. Here she is as Pocahontas, Mulan and Silvermist the Fairy:
Heart-warming stories of Disney kindness
Alongside many questions regarding her training, lunch breaks and relationships with other princesses, she also shared one of her favorite experiences, encouraging others to follow suit and do the same. Here are 4 magical moments that really touched my heart, starting with the ex-princess:
1. "This girl's face lit up like the 4th July"
too-tsunami recalls that when she was playing Pocahontas, a little girl called Emily came up to her, giving her a card she had made her. Inside it said:
"Dear Pocahontas, I drew some flowers for you. I hope you have a lovely day. Love, Emily."
Two days later, dressed as Silvermist, the same girl came into Pixie Hollow and gave her another card, saying:
"Dear Tinkerbell & her friends, I drew some flowers for you. I hope you have a lovely day. Love, Emily"
Neither the girl nor her father recognized her, so when a few days later, Emily came up to her dressed as Mulan, too-tsunami did something absolutely wonderful!
Before Emily started talking, the lovely actress said:
"I know you, you're Emily! I heard you're really good at drawing flowers, all of my friends told me."
Apparently, the girl's face lit up like the 4th July and to this day, too-tsunami remembers this lovely moment.
2. Snow White's kind words
User vertigounconscious shared another fond memory that will definitely bring a tear to your eye.
Walking into Disneyland for the first time with her parents, her mother looked up at the castle and started crying like a little girl. She continued:
"So I asked her why she was crying and she said she waited her whole life to see that castle in person and it was exactly how she imagined it would be."
Right at that moment, Snow White came up to her out of nowhere, hugged her and said:
"It doesn't matter how old you get!"
Indeed, the magical experience of Disney defies all ages and times.
3. "It truly was one of the most magical things in the world"
User SECRETAGENTEMMA recalls something that happened to her when she went to meet Cinderella at 7-years-old. Entering her castle, she was very nervous to ask for an autograph. Going up to the beautiful princess, she was delighted to hear Cinders address her by her name! She added:
"It truly was one of the most magical things in the world, in my mind. To this day, I have no idea how she knew my name. If my parents told her or if I had a nametag or SOMETHING, it was truly special regardless. Disney's the shit. You're awesome."
4. "Every single person in line watched in awe"
MC_Grondephoto contributed another adorable story to the feed about a little girl he saw who was very overwhelmed when she met Belle. He says:
"This little girl in her belle dress was patiently waiting in line and when it was her turn she ran full sprint and wrapped her arms around Belle and started crying."
In response, the lovely princess sat her down and held her tightly, patting her head and talking to her in her most "perfect Belle voice." To stop her tears, she then joked about where the Beast was ticklish and all the silly things Lumiere had said to her the previous day. Watching on in awe, the entire line looked on in admiration:
"Every single person just waited in line patiently watching in awe of this little girl who just cried the happiest tears she could ever cry and nobody got impatient, nobody said "Oh come on!" It was just magical."
What do you think of these Disneyland accounts?
I think it's absolutely wonderful when individuals go out of their way to make someone's day special. This just proves that in Disneyland, dreams really do come true.
