    Andrew Garfield and "Batkid" Miles Scott may not have presented together at the Oscars, but they had a "great time" together during a recent trip to Disneyland.

    "We were happy that Andrew, on his own time, drove to Anaheim on Monday to spend time with Miles and his family," Make-a-Wish spokesperson Josh deBerge said in a statement obtained by E! News. "We understand they had a great time."

    This trip to the Happiest Place on Earth comes on the heels of the Spider-Man star and Scott being cut from the 86th Annual Academy Awards.

    "Due to the nature of a live show, hard decisions sometimes must be made which require the Academy to cut segments due to the logistics of production," a spokesperson for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences told E! News on Monday. "Andrew Garfield understood that his segment had to be omitted, and he drove to Disneyland on Monday to spend time with 5-year-old Miles Scott (Batkid) and his family."

    Garfield's publicist told E! News in a statement on Thursday, "In full collaboration with the Academy and the show writer, Andrew prepared a segment for the Oscars to honor Miles Scott as the true hero that he is. At some point overnight on Saturday/Sunday morning, it was decided by those running the show that the segment didn't work in the ceremony."

    "They decided to pull it—Andrew and Miles were equally upset," the statement continued. "The producers arranges for Miles and his family to visit Disneyland on Monday and Andrew drove down to visit them and to bring Miles a personal gift."

    The rep's statement added, "Andrew did the right thing for Batkid and anyone saying otherwise is flat out lying."

    Thanks to the Make-a-Wish Foundation and the city of San Francisco, Scott got to live out his dream of helping the good citizens of Gotham for a day in November.
