You’re never too old to celebrate your birthday at the happiest place on earth.

On Wednesday, Walt Disney World Resort made Magnolia Jackson’s dreams come true when she visited the theme park for the first time ever to celebrate her 106th birthday.

According to a press release, Jackson, whose birthday was on March 14, fell in love with all things Disney after she attended the Florida Classic college football game in Orlando last fall and saw Mickey Mouse perform on the field in his drum major outfit. The performance “fueled her desire to celebrate her birthday at Walt Disney World,” according to the release.

And the resort did just that when they made Jackson’s wishes a reality with a big birthday bash in the Magic Kingdom attended by Mickey and Minnie Mouse.

Featuring Mickey Mouse-shaped balloons and large light-up numbers spelling out "106," Jackson attended the celebrations with her nearest and dearest and plenty of cast members.

Jackson was also presented with a silver tiara, which she proudly sported, as well as an impressive personalized cake on a table featuring a banner with the words “Happy 106th Birthday Magnolia” printed on it alongside Disney princesses and characters such as Goofy and Pluto.

“I have a very good feeling towards all these boys and girls,” Jackson said during the celebrations.

In video footage of the bash, Jackson could be seen smiling as she said “Hello” to Minnie before being sung “Happy Birthday” by some of the cast members — who wore Mickey Mouse gloves and Minnie Mouse ears — and Mickey and Minnie. Jackson even joined in the singing at one point.

Shannon Smith-Conrad, Walt Disney World Resort ambassador, described the celebrations as “lively” and “magical.”
