Disney Character Shadow Prank

Shoppers get a magical Disney surprise and it's adorable.

Admit it. At some point you have asked (or taken a personality quiz about) this one question: "Which Disney character are you?". For some recent mall shoppers in Long Island, the answer was as clear as their shadow - quite literally. 

Because making magic is their daily business, folks from the Disney Parks set up a mock shopfront in a local mall that allowed passers-by to interact with their own Disney character shadow.

Little girls loved it!

Grown men loved it!

This guy was straight-up not having it.

Serious cuteness.

The cynic in me wants to see an ulterior motive in this little prank; but other than just promotion for the Parks, it just isn't happening. This is just some good old-fashioned Disney feel-good funtimes, and it's the best.

Check out the magical shenanigans in full below. SPOILER: It's okay if you tear up a bit at the end, I totally did.
