Brett Nachman   |

‘Tis the season to be surprised with Disney cheer. The gift of the Mouse, or at least the gift from individuals who care about people who love the Mouse, is one that keeps on giving each year. Thanks to the Internet, and specifically YouTube, everyone can enjoy these special holiday moments. Often parents bring their children yuletide joy through bestowing them a Disney present, sometimes as cool as a vacation to one of the magical destinations.

Here below watch some of the funniest and most heartwarming reactions.

“My kids reaction to a surprise Disney World trip”

YouTube user avayatrue shared this joyful video to the world and has accumulated over 240,000 views as a result. Here, two generous parents give their children Ryan and Ali an “early Christmas present.” Supposedly regular, right? Just some innocent, Disney-themed pajamas, so it seems. Not at all. Consider a vacation to Walt Disney World. The kids’ responses are absolutely priceless when they realize this is true, rejoicing with cheering and jumping. Of course young Ryan must ask the obvious question, “All the parks?” Smart guy. Their video received so much attention that it would eventually be featured in a DisneyParks commercial for the “Let the Memories Begin” ad campaign. Check out the clip, as well as the advertisement, below.

“Surprise Trip to Disney World – Christmas 2009”

This special Christmas present begins with a tall box, sealing happiness and magic inside. Cue “When You Wish Upon a Star” from Pinocchio and release the surprise. At the 20-second mark, lucky boys Matthew and William pull the ribbon and unveil balloons and the promise of heading to Walt Disney World. “I didn’t know that was going to happen,” says surprised Matthew, later screaming with delight at the sight of receiving $50 to use toward the trip. Even the grandpa gets in on the fun, joining the rest of the family for the trip. You can tell these children’s responses are quite genuine, their enthusiasm contributing to the elation of watching the video from YouTube user jtmeikle. “It’s a Small World” concludes this fun clip, as Matthew and William dance around the living room with glee.

“Disney Christmas Surprise”

It’s a race to the finish as little girls hope to reach their Christmas surprise, but first they must open a lot of boxes. One inside another, inside another, and so on. “Oh, great, we have to unwrap something else,” the older one says. “This is scary,” Sam, the younger one, replies. Innocent Sam even believes a puppy is hiding in the miniscule package. How cute. YouTube user gmettie films this endearing video, highlighted by the moment when the girls realize their gift, at the two-minute mark. I love how the older sister hesitates, thinks about the present for a second, and then screams. Walt Disney World annual passes. What better gifts are there than those?

“Moran/Stevenson kids Disneyland Surprise”

YouTube user fabulous5clan crafted a most extraordinary surprise for these children by encouraging them to solve a T-shirt-themed puzzle. More excited screams underscore this video, especially when it is brought to light that they are leaving for Disneyland “right now.” Rushing to their bedrooms to find already-packed suitcases, the children continue to experience pure merriment. “Aren’t you so excited?” one recipient asks another. Sure enough we see confirmation they followed through, with pictures of them in the airport, sporting their shirts that say, “We are going to Disneyland.”

“Sydney’s Disney Cruise Christmas Surprise”

Visiting Walt Disney World is pretty exciting, but how about setting sail on the Disney Cruise Line? For fortunate little girl Sydney, this dream became a reality during a heartfelt Christmas moment. Her folks start out with a series of clues that hint something much bigger. “I’m getting overly excited,” Sydney says after receiving sunscreen, supposing this must amount to a more substantial gift. At the 2:44 mark in YouTube user Jordan Scott’s video, Sydney squeals when she comprehends the magnitude of the present. Her tears, mixed with giggles, account for a most earnest effect.

Whether you are celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or any other holiday, make it a special occasion with the individuals you care about most – and add the Disney touch if your budget allows. From the Geeks of Doom family, to you and your family, have a wonderful holiday season.
