Mickey Mouse helps tell kids they've been adopted

ORLANDO, Fla. — A family grew by two recently with the help of a little Disney magic.

Janielle, 12, and Elijah, 10, have lived with Courtney and Tom Gilmour for the last three years, Babble reported.

And on their first trip to Walt Disney World earlier this year, the Gilmours had a big surprise for the brother and sister: They were going to be adopted.

Courtney first had the idea to book a Fastpass to see Mickey at his Main Street greeting location, and quietly give him a sign announcing the adoption, Babble, which is owned by the Disney company, reported. .

Then she posted their celebration pins to her Twitter account, where the park's social media team took notice. That's when Disney took over, booking them a special meet-and-greet, Babble reported .

Courtney posted the video to her Facebook page where it has more than 1.2 million views.
