Tommy met a nice Cast Member in the Magic Mirror Realm who showed us the different symbols on the walls. Tommy surprised him by answering questions no guest had answered before! Tommy loved this area in the Sorcerer's Workshop area of the Disney Animation Building, in Disney California Adventure!

  2. Hi Tommy, I love your YouTube videos. Maybe I have to show up the same time you do at Disney. I am a professional mermaid, and I take care of kids that have autism. I love your Disney videos and your story is amazing.

    Take care,
    Isatu/Ice or Mermaid Morgan

    1. Hi Mermaid Morgan! This is MaryAnn! Thanks for your message and your kind words. The kids you take care of are lucky to have a mermaid friend! Sounds magical 🙂 Hugs oxox

  3. Hello Tommy and MaryAnn. I absolutely love watching your YouTube videos. They are amazing and make me smile. I am also a massive fan of Disney! I suffer from selective mutism which led to social anxiety disorder and having no friends and I don’t go out much. Watching your videos has made me re-evaluate all of my fears and anxieties because Tommy seems to have a positive outlook on life and is always happy. Thank you for these amazing videos.

    1. Hi Courtney, This is MaryAnn! Thanks for your message. Tommy struggles with a lot of anxiety too. We share his most positive moments, because that is what Tommy feels best sharing with the world. He truly is joyful and loves to share his enthusiasm with everyone. He prefers to keep his more difficult moments private. We hope that others understand how important this is, while enjoying sharing in Tommy’s best golden moments and successes! I hope you find passions and interests that help you overcome the challenges you face. Tommy’s love of Disney, running, his dog Adel, and many other things have all helped him to thrive! Best wishes to you, big hug, MaryAnn
