Family Recreates Disneyland Ride In Their Own Home
With the coronavirus pandemic continuing throughout the world, weddings, holidays and events are being cancelled or postponed to help halt the spread and save lives.
And one family, whose holiday to Disneyland was called off when the theme park closed, decided to bring the fun to their own home while social distancing.
Although the family were gutted the park had closed, they wanted to make the most of being together.
So, the self-confessed Disney fanatics, from Utah, recreated their favourite Pirates of the Caribbean ride last week, bringing to life the famous scenes and dressing up in amazing costumes.
Dad Kirk, stood in as a Disney cast member, meanwhile mum Julie and teenagers Brin, Carson, Cannon, Brooke and Chloe had roles as either pirates or park guests.
"Since Disneyland is closed, my family decided to recreate our favourite ride!" Said 18-year-old Brin.
"We are crazy big fans of Disney. It all started with my parents. They went there for their honeymoon and ever since then it's been a part of this family. We try and go once a year!
"My mom mentioned at dinner that she saw a homemade splash mountain video and her friends all wanted to see us do one, so we decided to do pirates since it's our favourite!
"After dinner, we put on some pirate Halloween costumes and just started filming scenes that we felt were key parts of the ride.
"It took us one hour to shoot all the scenes and then it took me another hour to edit it on my phone! Super quick and simple!
"We were just trying to be creative in our ways of spending time together! This quarantine gives a unique opportunity to be with your family, so we are taking full advantage!"
In the video, two siblings can be seen seated in the 'ride' while the rest of the family act as props and staff, with a very convincing Captain Jack Sparrow impersonation at the end.
Admitting it was just a bit of fun, the family of seven had no idea that the video would go viral after it was posted online.
"We were all in shock watching our phones blow up and the views go up by the millions was crazy!" Brin added.
"We are still so shocked that it is as big as it is! We are so glad we could put smiles on so many faces! We've received a bunch of positive comments, it's amazing.
"Disney was founded on imagination and creativity, so we hope we made Walt proud!"
We are *definitely* recreating this...
