An autistic boy fell head-over-heels in love with Snow White, and the Internet is swooning over their adorable encounter.

Mother Amanda Coley took to Facebook last week to share a touching video of her two-year-old son Jack Jack meeting the beloved princess in Walt Disney World last November.

"He was having nothing to do with any of the characters on our Disney vacation in November. You see, he has autism and is non-verbal," Coley wrote. "He is on the shy side with people he does not know. THEN... he met Snow White."

In the minute-long video, Jack Jack dreamily eyes Snow White with wonder and awe as the princess hugs him and laughs.

"I must have cried 1000 tears watching his interaction with her. He was in love," Coley adds.

In less than a week, the video has garnered over 6 million views and thousands of shares on Facebook.

Coley has since started a Facebook fan page, Disney Adventures & Autism, to share more photos and videos of her children's encounters with Disney characters.
