    Fan Celebrates 106th Birthday With First-Ever Disney Visit!

    It’s never too late to visit Disney for the first time!

    This story is proof that no matter how old you are, you can always get what you dream of. This is Magnolia Jackson, a 105-year-old lady who decided last year that she wanted to celebrate her 106 Birthday at Walt Disney World Resort.

    On March 13th, her wish became true when Mrs. Magnolia - who had never been to a Disney park before - arrived at the Happiest Place on Earth to celebrate her birthday. Full of joy and excitement, she entered the Magic Kingdom and was welcomed by Mickey right by the Cinderella Castle! Now that's a good way to make memories during your first visit.

    She even received a tiara, feeling like the beautiful princess she is. Tears of joy flowed as the Happy Birthday song played in front of Cinderella Castle!

    How did she celebrate it?

    Of course, she wasn’t able to attend the most popular rides, but Mickey and Minnie took her to visit EPCOT’s International Flower & Garden Festival. She wanted to try different dishes and not miss the live music in front of the beautiful gardens! That's a smart choice, Ms.Jackson.

    You probably might be wondering, how a 106-year-old lady decided she wanted to celebrate her birthday at Disney. Last year, she watched her grandson play in the annual Florida Classic college football game in Orlando. During the halftime show, she was captivated by Drum Major Mickey and fell in love with the performance. She couldn't imagine a better way to celebrate life than with such a charming character!

     We wish Ms. Jackson many more visits to Walt Disney World. What about you, want to follow in her footsteps and explore The Happiest Place on Earth? Send us a message, and let Famvia lend you a hand. Until the next one!
