Just try not to cry when you watch this little girl's heart-warming encounter with Tinkerbell at Disney World.

Shaylee Mansfield attends a school for children, like herself, who are deaf. In this environment she can be understood which, as this clip demonstrates, makes school "a very special place."

Three years ago, Shaylee and her family discovered somewhere just as special – none other than the "happiest place on earth", Disney World.

In this short film, Shaylee is seen meeting Tinkerbell. Crouching down to Shaylee's level, Tinkerbell signs, "Hi, my name is T-I-N-K." And her response is pure magic.

The Mansfield family returned to Disney World to share their tale as part of Disney's "Unforgettable Stories." "It made her proud of her own language," Shaylee's dad says.
