Snow White Ride
« on: March 19, 2013, 05:48:14 PM »
I'm not sure if this has been posted before (did a quick search and couldn't find anything) but I saw this story linked from Epbot.  It's a multipart blog about what the staff of the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World did for an autistic young man who's favourite ride was Snow White's Scary Adventures when the time came for the ride to be retired.  I recommend tissues because it is such a lovely story, it's his dad writing the blog and it's clear how much these people's actions meant to him.

If Timmy had had a Sheltie, he never would have fallen in that well!

Snooks, thanks for the link.  Lovely to read - bittersweet and uplifting at the same time.

No hay fever here. I'm crying.

Very moving, and incredible kindness from WDW and the people involved.

Would you mind passing the tissues this way?
