It would be safe to say kids love the magic of Walt Disney World, however for one autistic young boy, the parks mean much more.
6-year-old Jackson Coley was diagnosed with autism when he was 2-years old. His mother says when she brings him to the parks, her son feels the magic of Disney within himself and opens up.
Jackson and his mum, Amanda had been visiting the iconic travel destination from North Carolina this week. She says when her son gets to meet Disney princesses, his energy change.
“When he gets [the] time with the characters [that’s] when he just really seems to come alive and open up,” Coley told Fox 35 Orlando (Fox 35).
Jackson’s mum captured the moments when her son, dressed as Dopey, hugged and laughed with his favourite Disney Princess Snow White. See below:
“That was really special. That made me tear up when I was watching it because you just don’t see that with him. It’s not really comment,” Coley told Fox 35.
When Jackson’s mum shared the video and pictures of Jackson and Snow White on social media, the touching interaction drew positivity all around.
“We deal with this on a daily basis, with meltdowns and things like that, but that there are these sweet moments that I can share with other people and bring other people joy,” Coley said.
Snow White wasn’t the only Princess that Jackson, watch his interactions with other Princesses in the videos below.
