Sometimes all it takes to make a kid happy is a photo with their favorite Disney character. And while that would have been enough for 7-year-old Daisy, Belle from Beauty and the Beast wanted to do a little more.
Like most young girls, this Houston native couldn’t wait to meet her favorite Disney princess at Walt Disney World in Orlando, but the trip was extra special because it was a day that Daisey didn’t have to concern herself with all the complications that come from her Achondroplasia.
While there may have been no surgeries, there were still a lot of tears.
10. A Little Kindness Went A Long Way
A nurse at Children’s Health in Dallas nominated the girl for the Make-A-Wish Foundation after watching her go through it all.
9. Even In Her Condition, Daisy Was Still Selfless
She was overjoyed when she was selected at the end of last year, and almost picked meeting Louis Tomlinson instead. But she wanted something that her brother and sister could also enjoy, so she chose to go to Walt Disney World in Florida — specifically, so she could meet her favorite princess, Belle.
8. Then Daisy Became A Princess Herself
After two days in Disney World, Daisy did her hair up, put on her very own yellow Belle dress and got ready to meet the princess. The photos her aunt, Patricia, posted on Twitter show the 7-year-old looking very happy and very overwhelmed.
It’s fine if you’re already crying.
7. Before They Left, Belle Had A Final Surprise
When Daisy’s mom told the Disney princess that she was the whole reason the 7-year-old wanted to come to the theme park, Belle was touched. So touched, that she asked the whole family if they’d like to accompany her on a Tour of France, which is a part of Epcot in Disney World.
6. Needless To Say, Daisy Was Overjoyed
When the princess asked Daisy if she’d like to come along, the girl was brought to tears.
“Daisy was jumping up and down from excitement and was balling her eyes out when Belle told her she would take her on the tour,” Patricia told E! News. “Daisy was sobbing from happiness, and everyone around her was crying, too.”
5. Princess Belle Was Even A Little Emotional
Even Belle got a little teary eyed — because who wouldn’t be at such a magical moment like this one?
“Disney characters never break character,” Patrica said, “but Belle almost started crying when she said goodbye to Daisy because she was so touched.”
It’s obvious that the moment meant a lot to her too.
4. The Moment Between The Two Went Viral
After her aunt tweeted about the whole experience, everyone was in tears. The tweet went viral and everyone across the internet felt for this little girl and her magical Disney experience with her favorite princess.
People felt for the 7-year-old, and were happy to share in her joy.
3. Daisy Became A Celebrity Herself
Daisy’s aunt tweeted a photo of two young men who recognized the 7-year-old. They were at Hollywood Studios when they stopped and asked to take a photo with her.
Needless to say, it’s no secret that Daisy was thrilled and happy to obliged to her fans.
2. People Even Asked For Her Autograph
Daisy definitely felt like a rock star that day. In addition to taking photos with her adoring fan base, she also stopped to sign autographs. To think that just earlier that weekend, she was excited to meet her favorite celebrity.
Now she’s one herself. I’m sure that’s something Make-A-Wish never predicted.
1. Her Family Was Moved By The Experience
Her aunt sent out multiple tweets about how thankful she was for Disney and Make-A-Wish, and for how much her niece loved the experience.
One tweet read: “Again…I am so stunned at how sweet everyone has been…I would’ve never imagined all the love…thank you so much!”
So next time you’re feeling a little annoyed that you have to accompany your little cousin to Disney in the sweltering sun, remember young Daisy and how much joy the trip brought her.
While standing in lines and waiting to meet guys in Goofy costumes might not seem like a perfect day to you, it was to her. Everything can be magical if you change your perspective about it.
There is so much in life we take for granted, and it’s people like Daisy who remind us of what’s really important in life: friends, family, and Disney princesses.
