On social media, people are talking about a video that seems to show Walt Disney guests pushing a young child in a stroller so they don’t have to pay the park’s child admission fee.
The video was posted to TikTok on Monday by a user named @myfrienditsmebarbie. It was set to the popular “how would they know” TikTok sound, and it showed the group waiting in line with a baby-sized stroller to buy tickets to an amusement park.
The video then cut to a clip of the same group standing at the entrance to the Disney park, where the two women pushing the stroller helped a little girl dressed as a Disney princess get out of the baby carriage.
“When Disney ticket prices go up,” a text caption on the video read, while the TikToker added in the caption: “Poor kid was in an infant car seat.”
Walt Disney’s website says that tickets to Walt Disney World Park for people ages 10 and up start at $109 per day, while tickets for people ages 3 to 9 start at $104. Walt Disney World magazine, on the other hand, says that people under the age of three do not need a ticket to get into Walt Disney World or Disneyland Resort.

“We paid for our tickets and witnessed the funniest thing we had ever seen & so we decided to share it so you can laugh too,” she wrote.
Many people who watched the video thought it was funny. Some applauded the Disney guests for their money-saving idea, while others said they had done something similar with their own kids.
“We just teach our kids to lie about their age. But this is epic,” one person commented, while another said: “My daughter is four, [but] she still passes for two. You do what you gotta do!!”
“Been there done that,” someone else revealed.
Some people who said they had worked at Disney Parks replied that the parks know about the attempts and let them happen.
“Worked the front gates, trust me we know. We are told to just let it go,” one person wrote, while another said: “I worked the entrance in the past and let me just tell y’all, they didn’t pay enough to care THAT much. I see a stroller, kid says ‘two,’ have a nice day.”
“It looks like the cast member noticed but she pretended to not see the little girl but her smile says it all!” someone else claimed.
Many viewers found the idea funny or liked it, but others were angry at the group in question. “How embarrassing,” one viewer claimed, while someone else said: “And that just ruins it for everyone else.”
Many also defended the group, with one TikTok user writing: “All the negative comments on here clearly don’t have kids aged three to five that are not tall enough for most rides.. good job! We did this too until about five.”
Others defended the Disney Park visitors by claiming that the amusement parks “make enough money”. “To all the negative comments, Disney makes enough money! And they aren’t paying your bills so leave these people alone!” another person wrote.
