Disney princesses are a magical thing, sometimes most of all for the princesses themselves.

Amber Shaddock Roberts used to visit Disneyland every year as a child. And from ages 2 to 15, she stopped to say hello and take pictures with the woman who was dressed as Snow White.

Roberts says the park employee remembered her by name each year, something that made her annual visits even more magical.

Fast forward several years and Roberts heard that the woman who portrayed Snow White was still working at Disneyland, only now portraying the Fairy Godmother. Roberts was able to track her down and brought her photo album of their shared memories in tow. What ensued was pure, magical bliss. As Roberts wrote in her Facebook post:

When I was 2 years old, I met Snow White. Every single time I saw her until I was 15, she recognized me and knew me by name. She made my Disney childhood so incredibly magical. I haven't seen her in person since, but I knew she was now the Fairy Godmother. Today I tracked her down & got to hug her neck. Best day ever!!(And yes I cried!)

We hear you, Amber. We hear you. Is that fairy dust in our eyes?

All these comments with pictures of her making every child incredibly happy is heart warming. She seems magical and I hope if I ever get the chance to take my kids to Disney World we can find her. 💗

As a former theme park employee, I really hope this woman gets to see this post, and all the other people who have commented with memories of her. Theme park workers are a special breed who endure a lot of hard (and hot) days and don’t usually get to hear how much their work impacted someone. I really hope she sees what a difference she’s made! 😊

I have to admit the article didn't really produce much emotion for me but seeing all these pictures of her with all these different people and all your wonderful words sure are making me feel the feels!
