That’s the magic of Disney – as a tired girls’ trip to the zoo turned into a dream holiday to Disneyland Paris.
The excited reactions of little Danielle and Charlotte Garton were captured on video as they found out they were getting on a plane to France.
Still groggy having just been woken up, the girls first struggle to work out why they are at an airport and think dad Robert has made a wrong turn.
But when their parents reveal they are on their way to Disney, the girls break out into massive smiles.
Danielle, seven, and Charlotte, five, were filmed by mum Katrina.
IT engineer Robert, from Hull, said: “It was the first time we took the girls to Disneyland. They love all the films and have always really wanted to go.
“They had no idea whatsoever we were going. We had to make up an excuse why we were leaving the house so early in the morning. We told them we were going to a zoo. They were fast asleep when we put them in the car.
“I was so glad they didn’t cry and say they actually wanted to go to the zoo instead of Disneyland.
“Their reaction was better than I expected given that they were just waking up. Danielle mentioned at the start of the summer that she wanted to go on a plane so I think we nailed it. Both of them were really excited.
“Katrina and I will remember this moment for the rest of our lives and it’s great we caught it on camera so we can share it with everyone.
“They had an amazing time at Disneyland. We thought they might complain about the amount of walking they had to do, but they didn’t complain at all.
“They loved the Buzz Lightyear and Ratatouille rides the most.”
