Autistic Boy's Reaction To Snow White Will Melt Your Heart

An autistic boy had an emotional encounter with Snow White at Disney World. The video has now gone viral. Amanda Coley took her 2-year-old son Jack to the Florida theme park. She says Jack is autistic and mostly nonverbal, shying away from strangers, but when he met Snow White, something changed.

Coley, from North Carolina, captured the touching moment on video and shared it on May 9. The clip shows Jack sitting next to Snow White while smiling and staring at her eyes.

He even rests his head on her laugh, which makes her laugh. Coley wrote on her Facebook page, "I must have cried 1000 tears watching his interaction with her. He was in love." Since it's been posted, the video has been viewed more than 70,000 times on YouTube and more than 6 million times on Facebook.

One comment reads, "This brought so many tears to my eyes. What a sweet baby you have." Another comment reads, "Your little man has just melted my heart into a big gooey puddle!" After many positive responses, Coley created a Facebook page called Disney Adventures & Autism. She writes:

“Disney World is our happy place! Everyone that knows us will tell you that in a heartbeat. Having two boys with autism does not make every trip the easiest in the world. They each have their challenges but Disney goes above and beyond to make sure they are happy and are made to feel just like every other kid.

As a photographer, I absolutely love the photo memories I bring home from each trip. We try to go down to Florida once per year for our family vacation and I treasure every single photo and video I come home with. My middle son LOVES dressing up and interacting with the other characters and cast members so this has been a lot of fun for him, and of course I will dress the "baby" up for as long as I possibly can. These make for some of the best photos and memories as I watch them interact and get into the part.”
