An 84-year-old grandmother was gifted a trip to the most magical place on Earth — and she couldn’t believe it.

TikTok user CourtneyAnn40 shared a touching video of the grandma getting the surprise news that she would be going to Disney World.

The viral TikTok video began with a shot of the woman donning polka-dot blue Minnie Mouse ears with a white bow on her head as she sat on a bed and took out items from a box. “What was your favorite thing at Disney? What is this?” she asked someone off-screen.

Another woman could be heard saying, “Have you figured it out yet? What we’re doing today?” Then, the grandmother’s mouth opened in shock, finally figuring it out she would be visiting the resort in Florida.

“Are we really? We’re gonna go see the mice?” she said excitedly. “Yes, we are,” the other woman replied. 

“We’re going to Cinderella?” she asked, to which a series of “Yeps” rang out. “Get Out!” the grandma exclaimed. 

The video then cut to photos and videos of the grandmother at Disney World enjoying her time as Kina Grannis & Imaginary Future’s rendition of “What a Wonderful World” played in the background.

The grandmother could be seen wearing bright b -

lue shorts and a white T-shirt that read, “Believe in the magic!” She also wore the blue and white Minnie Mouse ears that she had donned earlier in the video as she waited at the entrance of the park.

In one sweet photo, she could be seen crying while standing next to Snow White and smiling widely as she gave an emotional hug to Mickey Mouse dressed as a prince. In a third shot, she could be seen looking up in wonder at a light show while sitting in a wheelchair. 

Several other photos showed her having a good time with her family as she posed for photos with Cinderella and in front of Cinderella’s castle. She also could be seen smiling brightly while on Main Street.

“This is your hint to take grandma to Disney” Ann shared in the caption of the video. “Rent the wheel chair, get the umbrella, the ears and enjoy your special time together!”

The video garnered more than 200,000 views, 35,000 likes and 1,000 comments within 24 hours. Several people commented on just how wholesome the whole thing was, including one person who wrote, “Her crying with Snow White is so precious.”

Another wrote, “The way she looked at Cinderella, I’m sobbing.”

One person noted: “No matter how old we are lucky enough to be, there’s still a kid in all of us.”
