Parents Surprise Trip to Disneyland Leaves Toddler Unimpressed (VIDEO)

LOL 146

toddler reaction to disneylandOnce upon a time, two little girls named Lily and Chloe went for a ride in the car with their mom and dad. They were on the way to school to drop 10-year-old Lily off ... or so they thought. Two-year-old Chloe didn't seem much impressed with the antics of her sister and mom, who was filming Lily talking about not wanting to leave her stuffed animal behind when she went to class. Chloe looks wise beyond her years. Teddy bears? Mama speaking in a high-pitched voice? Video taping everything? How trivial! she seems to say with those eyes. 

But then mom drops what we would all assume be the ultimate surprise trip to Disneyland Chloe's gives the camera a look that defies words. A must-see!

Love that glare Salt Lake City mom Katie Clem caught from her daughter Chloe. What are you talking about, Mom?! she seems to say. Who cares?!

Every time I watch one of these surprise Disney videos, I tell myself that it's silly to get teary-eyed over seeing the teary-eyed happiness of a child gifted the trip to what apparently is most kids' dream come true (clearly most, not all, not Chloe's, not yet anyway). But every time I watch one, my eyes well up. Even at this one. I'm just so happy for Lily and her teddy bear Duffy who doesn't have to be dumped for school this time and so thrilled that it seems Chloe might just grow up to be one of those innovator types -- a question the establishment, beat of her own drummer kind of kid. 

Until of course she goes to Disneyland, falls in love with the wonder of it all, and cries the next time her parents surprise her just like her big sister did.

What do you think it is about Disneyland that makes kids thrilled to tears?

very cute, but, all I could focus on was that the 10 year old wasn't wearing a seatbelt...

My daughters would react like that. Why is the older girl not wearing her seat belt??

You nailed it Rae! That was all I could focus on too! It wasn't a "not worn properly" thing, it wasn't on AT ALL! And clearly driving. Come on parents!

The 10 year old looks way too young to be 10 years old. She looks more like 7 years old. And I noticed no seat belt too!

Lily is 7, not 5. Her surprise from 2 years ago went viral. Still, the girl should be wearing a seatbelt!

My husband and I have a surprise trip to WDW planned in a few months for our 9 yr old who has never been. The secret is killing me!

O M g Im Almost 60yrs old grew up without seatbelts along with the rest of my siblings and were just fine !!!! Why is everyone so worried about no seatbelts ???? maybe they were stopped and getting ready to exit the car!!!!!!!!! Enjoy the video , and quit worrying about the seatbelts !!!!!! FREAKS !!!!!!!!

Setting a precedent to ditch school??? Hmmm...And yes, where was the seat belt??

Jennifer Spencer Hoffman

California state law...all passengers are required to wear seatbelts!!!!! The car was moving in the entire portion of the video...

I wanted to reach through my screen and strangle the mom and dad for not enforcing the seatbelt!  Here in NY it's now law that ALL passengers must wear a seatbelt or it's a ticket and fine.
