Everyone gets excited to go to Disneyland, but little kids are the most excited of all. The games, the rides, but best of all, it is the characters they get to meet and spend a fantastic day with!

This incredible footage of a little boy named Phoenix meeting with Minnie, Mickey and Pluto is making insane rounds on the Internet for one adorable reason. When he met his favorite cartoon characters, he signed them “nice to meet you”. Pluto was being his regular goofy self, but then mom comes in to introduce the little man to Minnie and Mickey, after which both Minnie and Mickey sign back to him “nice to meet you too”.

We can't see what the expression on this little boy’s face was, but sure can tell we were happy to understand them. The little man got so happy he could understand what they were saying, that he threw himself in Minnie’s arms for a hug, then off to Mickey for another! Do you have any tissues?

This visit was during a trip organized by Olive Crest, a non-profit that works with abused, neglected and at-risk children and their families. The organization took 175 of its foster and adoptive families to Disneyland, to celebrate National Foster Care Month.

The magical experience this cute boy received in the Disney themed park is something he will remember for his entire life. The moment this deaf boy met his favorite characters at Disneyland was extra-special because they found a common language!

Watch as Minnie, Mickey, and Pluto respond to little boy’s sign language and use it back to convey a message. The overly confused boy is left for words, literally. Minnie and Mickey are telling Phoenix, “It’s nice to meet you” and “I love you.” Talk about the Disney magic alright!

Moments later, he is overjoyed and throws himself at them, requesting a nice, warm hug from these characters. Aww!

Every year, Olive Crest sponsors a trip to Disneyland for its foster and adoptive families, and this year, they came up with an idea to give one of the kids a super-sweet surprise. Olive Crest posted a video of the amazing moment, which you can watch below. Get your tissues ready, because this will be the most touching thing you see all day.
