Walt Disney World Helps Dream Come True for 6 Year Old Girl

Adorable, 6 year old Layla Lester made an appearance on social media when she thought that a bride in Akron Falls Park in Akron, N.Y. was the real life Cinderella.  She excitedly went over to the bridge to greet her favorite princess.  The bride played along with Layla and made her day.  The bride’s photographer even captured the encounter and then the story went viral.  It was so adorable!!! There was a GoFundMe account set up to raise money for Layla and her family to journey to Walt Disney World Resort so that she could meet the real Cinderella live in person.

Her dreams finally came true and she got her special meeting.  She first visited the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique within Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park for a special princess makeover.  She then took photos with her family in front of Cinderella Castle before heading to Princess Fairytale Hall to meet Cinderella in person.

Check out these adorable photos!

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
