LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - A trip to Disney World turned into a magical reunion for three Colorado boys.


The brothers were performing a magic trick with Mickey Mouse at the Magic Kingdom when their father, Lt. Colonel Jason Liddel, suddenly appeared.

Between training and deployment in Afghanistan, Liddel had been away from his family for the past 14 months. When the father of three found out he was able to return for a few weeks, he and his wife plotted a fun surprise for their children at Disney.

Liddel will return to Afghanistan in December to finish his tour.
