Going to any Disney park at the Walt Disney World Resort is an experience to write home about, whether that’s the home of Cinderella Castle like Magic Kingdom or where you can stroll down Sunset Boulevard in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

There are myriad entertainment offerings for Disney fans to take in and enjoy. Of these, one of the best parts of a Disney vacation is being able to meet your favorite characters and interact with them; one recent character interaction with Happy the Dwarf at the Magic Kingdom melted our hearts.

TikToker Dani shared a video on the platform of her young, seemingly shy son at Magic Kingdom Park, watching the Festival of Fantasy Parade. Dani shared that her son was dressed like Happy and that the dwarf was the child’s favorite character, and he really wanted to meet him.

At first, it seems like Happy doesn’t see the child, and then does a double take and runs towards him and gives him a big hug. The interaction was one of the most wholesome ones we’ve seen in a long while.
