A TikToker claims she captured a family using a baby stroller to game Disney World’s admission policy, and the footage is going viral.
Disney World guest @myfrienditsmebarbie gained over 9.5 million views when she uploaded the video, surreptitiously captured while waiting in line at Disney World.
Since then, more than 9,000 TikTokers have reacted to the controversial footage in the comments — including some former Disney employees.
“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🤣,” explained @myfrienditsmebarbie in a comment under her video.
According to the official Disney World website, guests ages 3 to 9 are considered children and pay a reduced rate. Anyone over the age of 10 is priced as an adult. This means that guests under the age of 3 do not require a ticket and can be admitted for free.
In @myfrienditsmebarbie’s now-viral video, she claims to have witnessed a family using a baby stroller to take advantage of this policy. After gaining access to the park, the family is seen lifting a child from the stroller — appearing much older than 2.
While there are many different ticket packages available, and rates vary depending on the date, one-day adult tickets start at $109, while children’s tickets start at $104.

“I witnessed so many families doing this when I worked there…”
Some Disney fans applauded the family’s sneaky maneuver and shared that they themselves find ways to avoid paying for tickets.
“My son is 4 but at Disneyland he knows he’s 2,” one TikToker wrote.
“I fully support this because we went in May and it was literally like taking a second mortgage out on our house 😂,” wrote another user.
Other TikTokers took issue with sneaking kids into the park.
“No way. I even explain to my kids it’s wrong to get fountain drinks with a water cup It’s the principle of it,” one user wrote.
“They could [have] at least waiting to take the child out the stroller away from the front entrance. I rather just pay or don’t go at all, SMH,” another user commented.
Former Disney World employees also weighed in on the video, revealing some alleged industry secrets.
“Worked the front gates, trust me we know we are told to just let it go,” one user wrote.
“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 ‘2,’ have a nice day,” another user wrote.
“That CM [cast member] knows but they won’t interfere but will inform the lead and security guard and they’ll be monitored. Probably be blacklisted, as well,” shared another user.
“As someone that worked park entry at Disney world for years … I would always stop them and make them buy a ticket. They can back track and ban you from property, and ask for payback. It happens,” wrote one user.
“I witnessed so many families doing this when I worked there who would literally get escorted by security. They have cameras,” another comment read.
While some TikTokers claim that such behavior has inspired Disney to ban strollers, a spokesperson for Disney recently debunked that rumor.
According to the official Walt Disney World property rules, the park reserves the right to “deny admission, prevent entry or require a person already admitted to leave the Walt Disney World Resort or any part thereof … in our sole and absolute discretion.”
