The adorable moment a toddler with autism becomes smitten with a Disney princess has gone viral.

A North Carolina mum shared a video on Facebook that shows her two-year-old son Jack Jack falling in love at first sight at Disney World.

In the video, Jack Jack sits next to Snow White and gazes adoringly up at her as she places her arm around him.

The young boy blushes and smiles, before dreamily laying his head on her lap.

His mum Amanda Coley posted a caption along with the video that reads: “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.

“He is on the shy side with people he does not know. THEN... he met Snow White. I must have cried 1000 tears watching his interaction with her. He was in love.”

The clip now has 6m views, which led Amanda to set up ‘Disney Adventures and Autism’, a separate Facebook page filled with sweet photos of her children and their love for Disney.

“This truly was an extremely special moment for him as we don't ever get to see him react to others (aside from his dad, brothers and myself) in that way,” she wrote.
