And on their first trip to Walt Disney World earlier this year, the Gilmours had a big surprise for the brother and sister: They were going to be adopted.

Courtney first had the idea to book a Fastpass to see Mickey at his Main Street greeting location, and quietly give him a sign announcing the adoption, Babble, which is owned by the Disney company, reported. .

Then she posted their celebration pins to her Twitter account, where the park's social media team took notice. That's when Disney took over, booking them a special meet-and-greet, Babble reported .

Courtney posted the video to her Facebook page where it has more than 1.2 million views.
