Walt Disney World is known for creating special moments, and a recent video shows Winnie the Pooh doing just that for a disabled child and his family, as reported by Fox News.

For those of you who have disabled children know the feel when people look but aren’t sure how to interact with your kiddo. This Winnie the Pooh melted my heart and knew exactly what to do! He spent 10+ minutes with our little guy and he loved every second of it.😍Thank you Pooh!
