Local little girl's Cinderella story comes true at Walt Disney World

Posted at 6:04 PM, Nov 27, 2018

A local little girl is living out a real-life fairy tale, thanks to the folks at Walt Disney World and people right here in Western New York.

You'll probably remember Layla Lester from a story WKBW brought you in October.  It was last month when the 6-year-old met a bride in Akron Falls Park who she mistook for Cinderella.  The bride's photographer took this priceless photo of the magical encounter and the story soon went viral.

A GoFundMe account was then launched to help Layla and her family meet the real Cinderella at Walt Disney World resort.

On Tuesday morning, Layla visited the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique to receive her own princess makeover and met Cinderella at Princess Fairytale Hall.
