TikTok: Family Surprises Grandmother in the Magic Kingdom

Even though Disney World is known for its signature “Disney magic” and heart-melting charitable endeavors, sometimes there is still a special Disney event or a magical moment between Disney Guests that is particularly special. One woman got to experience one of those moments recently, when her family snuck in to surprise her on a Disney vacation for her 70th birthday!

Some Good News (a Youtube channel that delivers segments about happy news in the world, which was started in 2020 by actor John Krasinksi in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic) shared the video of this grandmother’s surprise, which was originally posted by one of the family members on TikTok.

When the woman is visiting Disney for her 70th birthday and posing in front of Cinderella Castle on Main Street U.S.A. in Walt Disney World, in the same position where many people pause for pictures, her family runs in and joins the picture unexpectedly! The surprise guests are all wearing matching clothing, which is a common choice for families visiting Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland. You can see the original video in all its entirety below!

After recognizing the people surrounding her and hearing “Happy birthday!”, the woman gasped in excitement and became teary-eyed with joy. You can also see onlookers watching the surprise and smiling — and who wouldn’t be smiling when watching someone be surprised by their loved ones, especially at Walt Disney World Resort?

The family member who posted the video on TikTok before Some Good News shared it on Twitter also shared some photos after the surprise; we love that you can see the birthday girl’s reaction as it happens!

Anyone who’s visited Disney or found a favorite Disney movie knows that Disney magic is a real thing, but sometimes Disney magic takes on a special form in the Disney Parks. Humorous and sweet interactions between Disney World Guests or Disneyland Guests are always heartwarming, but there’s nothing quite like someone reuniting with a loved one or being surprised by a loved one to really make onlookers feel emotional!
