LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – The most magical place on Earth lived up to its name for two newly-adopted children.

The Gilmour family took their two foster children to Disney World for vacation. The kids thought they were getting a private meet and greet with Mickey along with autographs. 

What they didn't know is that Mickey would soon change their lives forever.

After meeting with the kids, Mickey presented the kids a sign, telling them it was their adoption day.

The children immediately burst into tears, and their new parents ran out to hug them.

Their new mother, Courtney Gilmour, posted the video to Facebook, which has been viewed over 1 million times.

"Have tissues when watching PURE DISNEY MAGIC!" Gilmour wrote on Facebook.

Disney offered a special meet and greet with Mickey so he could let them know their adoption date. The kids had no idea any of this was happening. They just thought they were getting their books signed. This went better than we had hoped. They were beyond shocked and we were beyond emotional. We were very lucky to have Aunt Vicki there to film it! *side note* have tissues when watching PURE DISNEY MAGIC! #adoption #Disney Tom Gilmour
