Disney shows have played big parts during the childhood days for a lot of us. Thus, it is not surprising that a lot of us want to go to Disney World to experience the magic all over again.
And maybe, a lot of us will be so happy once we met our favorite cartoon characters there. Just like how happy Nala is, the dog in our story.
Nala is a service dog for Megan Leigh that works hard every single day. The dog is responsible and performs medical response tasks for Leigh.
So when it is time for the good dog to relax, its owner brought it to the Disney World. It has been a tradition for the pair to visit the theme park.
“I have always loved Disney. Before I got a service dog, my health would get in the way of me traveling independently. So now I can go to Disney and enjoy myself because Nala helps me be more independent.”, Leigh said.
Nala loves going to the theme park too and was able to enjoy rides and meet some Disney characters. The pair even wore matching mouse headband while at the park!
According to Leigh, service dogs can go to the rides with their handler as long as they don’t have a height requirement. She also shared that People Mover is Nala’s favorite ride because the dog can feel the wind on its face while on this ride.
But meeting the Disney princesses is the highlight for Nala in the theme park.
“Her favorite parts of Disney would be going to the Magic Kingdom. She loves doing character meet-and-greets as her ‘Go say hi’ command is a fun reward for her. Meeting the princesses is a favorite!”, Leigh stated.
The adorable pup is treated like a celebrity whenever it is playing with the princesses. The princesses love Nala and a lot of them recognize the dog because the pair are annual pass holders, according to Leigh.
Nala truly loves the attention and love it receives whenever it is meeting the princesses. Especially when the dog is meeting Cinderella and Ariel, its two favorite characters.
Nala receives belly rubs form Cinderella and Ariel always ask Nala to sit with her on the bench.
“We are best friends and a team! She helps me, I help her. A balance is important in working dogs. That’s why I believe it’s so important that she gets to have fun at Disney, too.”, Leigh said.
