Thousands of people turned up to Disney World to join in a vigil for the victims of the Orlando massacre. The event, which was unofficial, drew thousands of people to the front of the Cinderella Castle at midnight to honour the victims. With candles and glow sticks in hand, the crowd ‘kissed goodnight’ to the victims before the park closed for the night. When the clock struck 12, the magic kingdom fell silent for 49 seconds as a tribute to the 49 lives that were lost. The castle then shone red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple to show solidarity with the LGBTQI community.
Disney helps people in Orlando not only with a rainbow-lighted castle (which is incredibly beautiful, isn’t it?) but also donates money to support survivors and the families of dead people.
