Boy with autism who’s usually shy, completely opens up and has the sweetest reactions around Disney princesses
We know Disney for making dreams and wishes come true. For nearly 100 years, the Mouse House has brought classic stories to life and had children of all ages create treasured memories by literally living those stories.
Six year old Jackson Coley, fittingly nicknamed Jack Jack as he is a massive Disney fan, was the latest child that got to live quite a few dreams!
Jackson was born with autism but he doesn’t let that stop him from making his dreams come true. In November, the little boy got to meet several of Disney’s famous princesses.
He met Rapuzel, Princess Tiana, the titular princess in The Princess and the Frog, Cinderella and other animated aristocrats. Not only did Jack Jack get to meet these classic characters, he got to dress up to do it! He made a dashing Flynn Rider, Eugene to his friends, when he met Rapunzel.
He also made the most adorable Dopey when he met Snow White. These encounters are more than a child interacting with characters he loves.
“It’s helped him open up and be more affectionate” Said Amanda Coley. “I always notice after our trip when he meets the characters.”
Jack Jack shows us that merely having a pleasant exchange for just a few moments can make a large impact on our lives.
The feeling he felt meeting those Disney Princess he carried with him days and even weeks after. It shows something that may seem small has large, beneficial repercussions.
