The Most Magical Place on Earth just created a little bit more magic for one very special little boy. After he broke open his piggy bank to help Hurricane Dorian evacuees, Disney surprised a seven-year-old boy with a trip to Disney World.
Jermaine Bell of Jacksonville, Fla. spent over a year saving up for a trip to Walt Disney World.
But, when Jermaine heard that people were traveling far to avoid the path of Hurricane Dorian, he wanted to use his savings to help out. He used his Disney savings to purchase hundreds of hot dogs, bags of chips, and water bottles to distribute to people passing through Allentown, South Carolina, where he was visiting his grandmother. He told Fox13, “The people that are traveling to go to other places, I wanted them to have some food to eat so they can enjoy the ride to the place that they’re going to stay at.”
Even though Jermaine used his savings, Disney is making sure that the good samaritan still gets his vacation.
Jermaine celebrated his seventh birthday on Sunday, Sept. 8, and he received a surprise visit from Mickey Mouse and a group of Walt Disney World cast members. They were there to let him know that he and his family will get to enjoy a free VIP Disney vacation later this month.
“When I saw everything, I was just super happy,” Jermaine said. “Mickey came out, and I was just super happy. I’m really excited because I wanted to go to Disney a long time.”
Jermaine’s advice to others is: “Be strong, and if you do good things, you will be rewarded.”
