Disneyland really is the happiest place on earth when you see videos like this.
Mickey and Minnie surprised a young, deaf boy by signing “It’s nice to meet you” and “I love you,” which led him to be overjoyed and hug the characters.
“The child was ecstatic after meeting the characters because he didn’t know they would speak ‘his language,’” a spokesperson for Olive Crest, a child abuse prevention agency that arranged the trip, told ABC News. “The child is typically not a hugger, so the fact that he hugged both Minnie and Mickey spoke volumes to the joy he felt.”
The little boy’s family did arrange to have an ASL translator present during his trip to the park, but Olive Crest said the characters seen in the viral video “were not briefed” on his visit before he arrived.
