Hope all is well and everyone has had a good Christmas.

You folks ever see those commercials or perhaps hidden camera shots of kids finding out they're going to Disney World? You see how excited they get, jumping, screaming, excited! Yeah, that's the opposite of what my kids and the brother-in-law's kids had.....

Grandpa and Grandma (wife's side) had planned for the past 6 months taking the grandkids and their parents to Disney World - the parents, we knew about it, but the kids were kept in the dark until Christmas. Grandpa and Grandma setup a scavenger hunt and the kids followed clues around the house and found all these cards that spelled out "We are going to Disney".

My niece (9), she demanded that we only do things she wants when we go there. She only wants to find The Decedents (I had no idea what she was talking about or what these are) and see Eve. She demanded that is all we do or she was going to be mad.

Oldest nephew (7), he said this was all a joke and we weren't going and refused to think otherwise. He got so annoyed by us telling him that we were actually going that he got physically angry with his dad and started hitting him and kept saying it was a bad joke and to shut up.

Youngest nephew (3), he was upset before the the scavenger hunt started and was mad we weren't doing things he wanted to do so the whole time the other kids were on the hunt, he was off in a room screaming and crying.

Son (5), he was the only kid that showed excitement. He said it was going to be great to fly down there, see Mickey and Minnie and have fun. He wasn't jumping and screaming, but he wasn't in denial or rude like his cousins.

Daughter (9), she crawled under the dinning room table and started crying and saying she wasn't going. She literally got upset, cried and said she wasn't going to go and no one could make her. For the past couple of years she's been bugging mom and dad about how some of her other friends have gone to Disney World and got to fly on a plane and she wanted to do all these things, too. Us, not being rich and just about living pay check to pay check, haven't been able to foot the expense of a trip like this. Now that the opportunity has come, she's crying under a table.....da fuq?

The daughter pouted and cried for about an hour, we just had her sit in another room until she wanted to talk about it. After she finally calmed down and we talked with her, she is scared of flying. Knowing this, we were able to talk down her fear a bit, but she still refused to go.

So, I call BS on all those videos/commercials of kids having extreme excitement when they find out they're going to Disney World. BS!

Well Damn! What a f'ing mess. Those are not the reactions I would have expected. Hope the trip turns out to be fun for them anyway. It's expensive taking a bunch of people to Disney World.
