Every Guest has a Disney dream of some sort, whether that’s visiting or having a particular experience. But some wishes are harder to grant than others.
However, for one little boy, nothing is impossible, especially with the help of that one-of-a-kind Disney Wish magic.
At only 9 months old, Connor was diagnosed with Spastic Cerebral Palsy, “a neurological disorder that affects a child’s movement, motor skills and muscle tone characterized by jerky movements, muscle tightness and joint stiffness.”
After a complex surgery and countless hours of rehabilitation, Connor has succeeded. He is making excellent progress toward walking and feeding himself after doctors told his parents, Melissa and Steve, that he may be unable to do these things.
Knowing this inspiring backstory only makes this video even more touching.
Conner’s Disney Wish was to walk to Mickey Mouse. Mom & Dad made it happen on the Disney Wish. Just wish he would have gotten more time to walk to him, until next time. @disney @dclofficial @disneywishesnetwork @disneywishcruise #disneywish #disneycruiseline #journeytowalk #lifewithcp #bestsmile #mickeymouse
The caption reads, “Conner’s Disney Wish was to walk to . Mom & Dad made it happen on the Disney Wish. Just wish he would have gotten more time to walk to him, until next time.”
If watching Connor meet by walking to him all on his own brings a tear to your eye, you’re not alone. Viewers on TikTok rushed to the comments to share how the video made them tear up.
We love to see being patient and encouraging Connor to achieve his dream.
Nobody loves a happy ending more than the , and we love seeing Connor’s Disney Wish come true.
