This past April, young Emily was so excited to see Stitch, she sped off towards the character. In her hurry to hug the cuddly character, she soon stumbled and fell.
However, a quick-thinking Stitch sank to the ground in his own faux fall, sharing the moment with the eager disguised fan. As Emily quickly recovered from her unplanned pavement dive, so did Stitch as he offered the child a hug.
This viral video, from the family’s April 18th visit to Disneyland (Anaheim, CA) is a perfect example of pure pixie dust powered magic. Experiment 626’s compassionate thinking, caught on camera, clearly shows the character going the extra mile. Not only did Stitch attempt to make Emily feel at ease after her fall, but he also bestowed her with a small gift.
Magical Moments with Stitch
Furthering the magic, additional images and videos show Princess Emily further engaging with Stitch and other characters. Kudos to Emily’s family for embracing and encouraging moments like this.
“Let them be little. Let them have fun. Let them explore the world in their own way. Let them make their own friends. Let them discover their interests. Let them dream. Embrace their uniqueness. Be supportive. The best photos are natural. The best videos are unexpected. I love my daughter for who she is. I wouldn’t change anything about her. She will change the world in her own way.” -disney_princess_emily
