"Timon earned a very special in heart during my first trip to Disney World. I had been run over by a bicycle two days before my trip, so three year old me was stuck with a broken leg in a wheelchair. During ‘Festival of the Lion King’, Timon spent a majority of his time with me; giving me hugs, entertaining me and holding my hand the entire time. I am so grateful for that experience since it made my entire trip. Nothing can ever top that Disney moment for me."
"I used to be very, very ill. I was suffering from a brain tumor and in high school, it got REALLY BAD and REALLY DANGEROUS. I always watched Disney movies to feel better. I was unconscious 16 hours of the day when I was ill, and when I was awake, I liked to watch Disney movies. I went to Disney almost as soon as we found out it was dead. They let me "open the show" to Festival of the Lion King at DAK. I owe part of my health to Disney for keeping me going. Thanks, Walt."
