Epcot’s Snow White Goes ‘Above And Beyond’ In Soothing Child With Autism

Disney might be known as “the happiest place on Earth,” but massive crowds can make the Disney-going experience overwhelming for even the most patient among us. For the neurodiverse, it can be downright traumatizing.

That’s why Epcot’s Snow White is being lauded for comforting a child with autism who had an especially tough time waiting in line to see her.

Here’s how it all went down.

Bergner’s son, Brody, is a 6-year-old living with autism. His mom reportedly spent “months” preparing Brody for the family’s visit to Epcot, which gets nearly 12 million visitors a year.

After a long day of going on rides, Brody, who is nonverbal, was waiting in line for a meet-and-greet with Snow White when things started to go awry.

“Brody was overheated, sweating and overwhelmed by everything,” Bergner told Today. “He just started crying.”

Luckily, Snow White sprang into action to help calm Brody, who found solace cuddling in the Disney princess’ arms. She also steered Brody away from the crowd to spend a bit more time with him, The Miami Herald reported.

“She took so much time with him. She was a pure angel! She was magical and my family is forever thankful and touched!” Bergner wrote on Facebook.

Bergner’s Facebook post garnered more than 251,000 likes and 77,000 shares.

Bergner told Today that she and her husband had “never seen Brody connect with a stranger so quickly.”

“I lost it. I was crying,” she said. “She led him to a bench and he was leaning into her and she was hugging him. Brody loves squeezes and soft, soothing voices.”

Social media seemed to love the story almost as much as Brody loved Snow White.

Bergner asked social media for help tracking down the woman portraying Snow White that day, but there’s no word on whether they’ve been able to connect.

“Please make sure she is recognized!” Bergner pleaded on Twitter. “We will never forget this moment.”

Chances are Brody will remember Snow White for a long, long time.
