Well.

That was good.

Sniff, sniff. That dust from Florida must have traveled up to Tennessee because my eyes are watering, BAD.

What an awesome story. This is the first time I have heard it, so I went back and read the back story.

I'm in tears over it. I love how I can just feel the Disney magic through your words. I can't wait to find out how the story ends.

I can tell you it's probably not a sad ending... ;-)

DH and I can't wait to read the rest! I was reading it out loud to him while he ate dinner last night. We laughed, we cried, we marveled at the wonder and magic that is Disney!

I just wanted to echo the others and thank you for sharing Ben and his story with us. I have read the blog posts and was so touched by the kindness everyone showed Ben. What a special night!

Hi Lokheed,

I read your blog a few days ago and it made me smile and cry at the same time! I also wanted to let you know that Ben's story is one more reason why I am so proud to work for Disney.

Had read a couple years ago Ben's story and family moving and his love of the Snow White ride. Being a mom of a son with autism it really hit home. When I heard originally the ride was closing for good, I wondered how this would affect this child.

Wow, reading the links to this... sure had my good cry of the night.

If anyone is interested, I am being interviewed on Good Day Sacramento tomorrow morning regarding Ben's whole Snow White experience. It will be broadcast live on their website, the interview is scheduled for 7:40am Pacific time tomorrow (Saturday, June 23rd). I gather the interview will also be posted on their website afterwards. I'll post a link in my next reply.
