I wonder how great Dick's house must be, amiright???
side note: I am glad I do not and never will have children.
Every normalish person should have a kid or two, it really is the most wonderful thing.
|Dread Pirate Roberts - 2010-11-06 |
Wow, I really feel bad for the parents. I'd be furious. Those kids seem pretty ungrateful.
Kids: think of it this way: You don't have to go to school for a few days. Go make your parents buy you stuff, ride some rides, and enjoy the free time you have. Fuck, I'll go with them to disneyland. I could use a few days off from work.
Definitely five for evil.... as sad as it made me.
Maybe they just wanted to spend some time with their family and not go to the crowed shit hole of Disney.
They're obviously pretty tired.
But still, Best Friend Parents usually pay for it by having ungrateful children. Children with mohawks.
Yeah, he looks like he's at that age where he feels he has to make a conscious effort not to enjoy anything.
|Mike Tyson?! - 2010-11-06 |
I remember when I had a mohawk and it was like the world had stopped where ever I went (I guess that's the point?). Now parents put them on their little children. Man times have changed.
Also I hated going to Disney. I don't blame these kids.

B-b-but it's EXPENSIVE! And you're SUPPOSED to like it because that's what all the TV commercials say!
|sinuendo - 2010-11-06 |
I hope Dick is their real dad, that would be awesome.
|IrishWhiskey - 2010-11-06 |
I really blame the parents here, who seem to have confused Disney commercials with reality. 'Kids usually don't appreciate what they're given' is a lesson you learn before your third kid.
|Oscar Wildcat - 2010-11-06 |
Fucking hell, I'm totally with the kids on this one. Disneyworld? Have you lost the will to live? Hey parents, you might ask your kids what they think of the place before hauling everyone down there. Not sure why all the commenters above think this is so strange/ungrateful.
WHO WANTS DESSERT
Seriously, I think it says more about the parents that they're so out-of-touch/full of themselves that they think that by spending hundreds if not thousands of dollars on a vacation without spending 5 seconds seeing if its something their kids actually even like or care about in the first place their kids have to like it.
But they're not surprising them with something nice.
They're surprising them with Disney World.
Like it fucking matters.
I surprised you with something I had no idea if you wanted so you better like it!
That's how surprises work, Mike. You can either ask someone if they'd like something, or you can surprise them with it. You can't do both because people have memories.
This lady's mistake was that she went about it in a profoundly stupid and obviously rehearsed way, basically trying way too hard to recreate a commercial.
Now if the parents had the good sense to take the kids to Bon-Bon land in Denmark; that would be an awesome gift and remembered well into senility. But, Disneyland? And let me guess, afterwords we'll all have dinner at McDonalds. Sheesh.
You surprise people with parties for their birthday. You don't surprise someone with a thousands of dollars investment unless you are absolutely certain it's something they need/badly want and have talked about forever. There's no way--NO WAY--Hoodie McDougal wants to hang out with costume Disney princesses for a week.
No you bumbler. If you surprised me with Taco Bell tonight I'd be excited because I got to eat and I enjoy eating at least once a day if possible. If you surprised me with a kick in the balls I would not be as happy.

I think he's saying Dig House.
I don't know what Dig House is, but I'll bet it's more fun than Disney.
|twinkieafternoon - 2010-11-06 |
The little girl crying sealed it for me. Nonstop giggling. It was like a perfectly timed cartoon gag.
And yeah, I wanted to say something about the woman being so impressionable/out of touch that a commercial about kid's "being surprised with Disney" would lead her to attempt to film the same (after apparently an all night exhausting drive) with Sith, Mohawk, and Girl here, but you guys already got there for me.
God that must have cost a fortune. I feel for her, but hopefully this is a wake-up call. Cut your losses, get a refund, and take them to Dick's House.
|Chalkdust - 2010-11-06 |
fuck all y'all, I'm gonna go to Disneyland today
|Night Train to Mundo Fine - 2010-11-06 |
I wouldn't feel so horrible. I'm sure the two little ones perked up as soon as they got there. They are exhausted. Hoodie pretended to hate it but liked the coasters.
...You did now this is how young kids are, right?
Yes, I'm certain it worked out just like it does in the Sunday funnies, Grandpa.
Yup. Sort of funny that everyone's having a "who's more jaded" contest while expressing surprise that this didn't go like it does in the commercials. They'll still end up enjoying it. (FANTASMIC IS AWESOME)
I was seven when we went, and the part I remember best was the guitar pool. That and I cried after Aliens Encounter.
|Redlof - 2010-11-06 |
I think this woman was just so caught up with the idea of being THE COOLEST MOM EVER that she forgot to worry about the actual response from her kids.
Well, I suppose there's worse things to do to someone then giving them a free trip to Disney World.
|memedumpster - 2010-11-06 |
Didn't the Goofy Movie already address this phenomenon?
|Gamara II - 2010-11-06 |
|charmlessman - 2010-11-07 |
I'm with the kids. I'd be crying too.
In fact, I'm crying a little right now.
|Syd Midnight - 2010-11-07 |
For about 00 less they could have had a big 3 Stooges style cake and pie fight in their back yard, something the kids would enjoy and remember forever and have been the envy of all of their friends and probably gotten on local TV and all without an endless miserable car ride. I mean if they're fishing for ideas.
|jaunch - 2010-11-07 |
I may catch Hell for this, but why does everyone hate Disneyworld so much? I just got back from there from a vacation with a few friends. When you go as an adult, and you aren't hauling any small children around, it's really a lot of fun. Animal Kingdom and the Everest ride are really cool. I touched a llama!
I got to go a few years back with someone who was an employee of Disney. Everything was half price, and because he'd interned at the park, his old friends put us on rides via back doors. In 4 days we got to see and do almost everything in the park, and every night it was drinking and dancing until 3 or 4 in the morning.
They closed the clubs now, which is a shame. Then again, a male friend of ours did get roofied, but he was sort of asking for it.
It's a fake town full of people who are there with the sole purpose of having a good time. It's crass and commercial, and Disney the company sucks, but god damn it a vacation is a vacation.
Because THE ESTABLISHMENT IS PLASTIC, MAN!!!

They'd have probably been more excited about it if you'd sprung it on them before they'd been cramped in a car for three days.
