Disneyland fan spots boyfriend in video she filmed at the park SIX MONTHS before they even met

A WOMAN has revealed how she spotted her boyfriend in a video she took at Disneyland six month before they started dating.

The story wouldn't be out of place in any fairytale romance novel, but this time it's better, because it's real life.


The Disneyland fan, Anyssa Martinez, 22, from California, US, met her now-boyfriend Nathan Hatton, 28, over Instagram in 2020, when he slid into her DM’s.

The pair quickly bonded over their love of all things Disney, and slowly formed their relationship in the early days of the pandemic.

But six months into their romance, the college student noticed they had actually interacted once before – at a Disneyland parade she attended with her family.

She was scrolling through her phone when she stumbled across a video of a parade, which showed Nathan was a performer who waved at her during the event.

"I truly never thought I would find my Prince Charming, but Nathan has exceeded any fairytale I could have imagined,” Anyssa said.

"I was bored one day and decided to look through old Disney memories and noticed that I had a video of him from 2019.

"I remember it really vividly. I was so shocked when I realised Nathan was the coachman in the video!

"Watching the Electrical Parade has always been my favourite, and finding this video makes it even more meaningful.

"I always wave to the performers but the fact that he noticed me in such a big crowd made me feel so special. It’s one of my favourite memories at Disneyland.

"I showed Nathan and he was super surprised. When I asked him why he tipped his hat at me that night, he said there was just something about me that caught his eye.

"He’s convinced it was meant to be from the beginning. Love has a funny way of finding you when you least expect it."

She posted their fairytale story on TikTok last month where the clip has since racked up 277,000 views, and fans can't get enough of their the budding romance.

Anyssa was blown away by the kindness of people: "I thought this video would only reach a few hundred people, so it was a huge shock when so many people saw our story.

"It was really overwhelming how many kind messages we received.

"It’s really common for people to receive hate on social media, but the response to our video was so positive.

"I’m so glad our story made so many people smile."

One TikTok user wrote: "NO WAY THIS IS A DREAM COME TRUE."

Another person commented: "I still can’t believe this, talk about fate!"

"Waiting for this to happen to me,” said another user.

Someone else added: "HOW. I WANT THIS FOR ME."
