Disney World makes that claim, and many agree, including Janielle, 12, and Elijah, 10. For the past three years, these foster children have lived with Courtney and Tom Gilmore. "We quickly knew we wanted to adopt them," says Courtney, "but sometimes the system doesn't work as fast as your heart." Finally the new parents finalized the paperwork. The official adaption day would be May 24, 2017, and they wanted to make it unforgettable, so they took the kids to Disney World. When they arrived, Courtney tweeted a photo of her family and her plans for the children. Disney immediately reached out, setting up a dinner for the family. But they never expect to meet Mickey Mouse in person.

After dinner, Mickey appeared. For a few moments,  he joked with Janielle and Elijah. Then, as they all posed for pictures with Mickey, another Disney employee held up a sign announcing their official adoption date. Both children were so thrilled that they cried as Mickey hugged them. Courtney, a former foster child herself, knows how important it is to remember kids who need help. She uploaded a video of the special moment which has been viewed 1.5 million times so far.
