The child smiles.
"For those of you who have disabled children know the (feeling) when people look but aren't sure how to interact with your kiddo," Barber wrote in a post with a video of the interaction on Facebook. "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."
They bought a Winnie the Pooh pin and stuck it to his stroller to commemorate the experience.
"This was his first time at Disney World," Barber told WTSP. "I had no idea the video would go viral. We were just hoping to reach other special needs families to show this amazing interaction and that it is worth the trip to Disney."
They saw Pooh again the next day, which brought a smile to the child’s face.
"Our son recognized Pooh and started smiling," Barber told Yahoo News. "We wanted to make sure he or she was recognized."
