When Alyssa Brown visited Snow White's wishing well at California's Disneyland theme park, the 4-year-old never dreamed her wish to be reunited with her father, a Marine serving in Afghanistan, would instantly come true.

The magical moment was recently captured on camera by Alyssa's mother showing the little girl skipping to the well with the Disney princess before they both shared her heart-warming wish.

'I wish with all my heart that my daddy would come home,' she says while covering both her eyes over the well's edge.
