Winnie-the-Pooh at Disney World is officially our favourite character of all time. He was spotted doing the most heartfelt thing for a special needs child.


Winnie-the-Pooh was one of the most thoughtful and sweet characters we grew up with. His outlook on life no matter the situation, is one that is incredibly positive.

A Winnie-the-Pooh at Disney World in Orlando, USA recently went viral for doing the most heartwarming thing. He spent 10 minutes interacting with a special needs child. Winnie-the-Pooh approched the family and spent time with Kade, showing him love and affection in the best way.

32 million people have watched the video already and have been moved to tears.

“For those of you who have disabled children know the feeling when people look but aren’t sure how to interact with your kiddo. This Winnie the Pooh melted my heart and knew exactly what to do!
He spent 10+ minutes with our little guy and he loved every second of it.

Thank you Pooh!”

Kade was diagnosed with SCID (Severe Combined Immunodeficiency)  in January of 2018.  SCID is a disease where an individual’s immune system doesn’t work properly causing them to not have the ability to fight off any disease they may come in contact with.

The family have started immune therapy for Kade and are taking extreme precautions to keep him safe. They were worried about how he would handle the busy theme park but were thrilled by how he reacted to Pooh.

“Some people care too much. I think it’s called love.” – Winne-the-Pooh
