A Western New York couple and little girl received a fairy-tale surprise after making an appearance on ABC's 'GMA Day.'

Olivia Spark and 5-year-old Layla Lester met at Akron Falls Park earlier this month and it was a moment neither will forget.

“Layla spotted Cinderella or who she thought was Cinderella,” said Jessica Lester, Layla’s mom.

The couple's family was so moved by the encounter, they started a GoFundMe and raised enought money to send Layla to Disney World.

On GMA Day, Layla was surprised with a few extra things. She will get a princess makeover at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and a personal meet and greet with Cinderella. She will also go to New York City to attend a special performance of Frozen on Broadway.

The couple was also surprised with a honeymoon in the Caribbean.
