The sights. The sounds. The crowds. Disney World can easily overwhelm just about any kiddo. With this in mind, mom Lauren Bergner spent months prepping for the visit with her six-year-old son, Brody.
Brody, who has autism, is sensitive to noise and crowds. After a day filled with rides, plenty of other people and sweltering heat, the little boy had a meltdown while waiting to meet Snow White.
Bergner told Today, “Brody was overheated, sweating and overwhelmed by everything. He just started crying.” That’s when Snow White stepped in. The park princess gave the boy some much-needed cuddles. In a now-viral Facebook post, Bergner wrote, “Snow White could tell Brody had special needs! She took him for a walk and got him time away from the crowd! This is true magic!”
Along with pics of the sweet theme park visit, Bergner also posted a copy of the email she sent to Disney, thanking Snow White for everything she did and adding, “Please make sure she is recognized! We will never forget this moment.”
