You’re never too old for a first visit to Walt Disney World, and one Disney fan has proven this fact by sharing videos of her grandfather experiencing a number of firsts during a recent family vacation to the ‘Most Magical Place on Earth!’ TikTok user @abbyg.matthews just shared footage of her grandpa experiencing everything from his first entrance into the Magic Kingdom, character cavalcade, and a pixie dusting experience in Fantasyland. Watch the video of this magical moment below:

Guests visiting the Magic Kingdom can get pixie dusted while visiting the Sir Mickey’s shop in Fantasyland (the shop even received some new wands just for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World!) If you have never been pixie dusted before, you can see a glimpse of what happens in the video above.

And, to get pixie dusted for yourself, or to create a magical moment for your own friends and family, you can simply head to the store and ask a Cast Member about it. This uniquely Disney magical moment is complimentary and a wonderful way to add something extra special to a trip to the Magic Kingdom, especially if it is for a first visit!

@abbyg.matthews’ videos go on to show her grandpa enjoying other memorable moments around Walt Disney World, including his first time seeing a character cavalcade in the Magic Kingdom (above) and grandpa full of smiles as he explores Disney’s Hollywood Studios (below).

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a heartwarming video of a first visit for a very special grandparent at Walt Disney World. Earlier this year we shared a video of a grandma being gifted a first Walt Disney World vacation for Christmas, and her reaction is just as special. (You can watch that video of a grandma heading to Disney World for the first time here.)

If you are planning a first trip to Disney World for any member of your family, at any age, be sure to pick up a first visit pin for them at your Disney resort or on your way into the first theme park of your trip, and don’t forget your camera!
