Disney pays a magical tribute to Orlando victims

By Fabio Crispim

Disney World in Orlando has paid tribute to the Orlando massacre in a very special way.

Vigils and tributes have been held all over the world after the tragic attack on Pulse nightclub that left 49 people dead.

Thousands of people gathered in front of the Cinderella Castle at midnight to honour the Orlando victims.

With coloured glow sticks and LED candles, the crowd ‘kisses goodnight’ to the victims shortly before the park closed its doors for the night.

The Cinderella Castle then shone orange, red, green, blue and yellow to show solidarity for the LGBT community.

And, in another tribute, friends and families came together to honour 22-year-old Luis Vielma, who worked at a Harry Potter ride at Universal Studios, by raising their ‘wands’ in front of Hogwarts.

You can watch the Harry Potter tribute below:
