Boy with Autism falls in love with Snow White

A video shared by a woman showing an interaction between her two-year-old, who has autism, and Snow White at a Disney amusement park has gone viral.

Amanda Coley said her son “Jack Jack” is non-verbal, shy around people he does not know, and “was having nothing to do with any of the characters on our Disney vacation in November.” All this changed when he met a woman dressed as Snow White, with whom he was comfortable and friendly. “I must have cried 1000 tears watching his interaction with her,” Coley wrote. “He was in love.” 

Coley created a Facebook page to share the family’s special Disney memories. “If you like Disney, costumes, photography or have the blessing of knowing a beautiful child on the autism spectrum then follow along as I'd love to share our adventures with you all in hopes of at least bringing a smile to your face or showing you that Disney can be an amazing place, even for a child with disabilities,” said Coley.
