A sweet video showing a 2-year-old boy with autism “falling in love” with Snow White at a Disney theme park has been viewed millions of times online after it was posted to Facebook by his mother recently.
The tender moment took place when he went to a Disney park with his family last November, according to Amanda Coley, who posted the video on April 28.
Coley wrote that her 2-year-old son “Jack Jack” has autism and is non-verbal. He is typically shy with people he doesn’t know, and was “having nothing to do” with any of the characters he interacted with on the family’s vacation.
But all that changed when he came face-to-face with Snow White.
“When your 2 year old falls in LOVE with Snow White,” Coley wrote directly under the 32-second video, adding, “I must have cried 1000 tears watching his interaction with her. He was in love.”
Coley ended up with many friend requests from the video that she decided to create a Facebook page dedicated to her family’s adventures. The page is called “Disney Adventures & Autism.”
Two of three sons have been diagnosed with autism, and Disney World is “100% their happy place,” she wrote.
As of Monday morning, the clip had been viewed on Facebook more than 6 million times. It was subsequently removed from the page, but Coley posted the footage to YouTube.
