Winnipeg over Disney? Calgary boys unimpressed with parents’ surprise trip south
Metro Winnipeg: November 6, 2017
Tourism Winnipeg is promoting the city as a place more magical than Disney World using a family home video of a surprise trip reveal gone sideways.
The 40-second clip from 2013 stars Jonathan and Ethan Byers, from Calgary, who were eight and six years old at the time. Their parents, Ian and Chantalle, had previously told the boys that they were travelling to Winnipeg for a vacation.
“They were pretty excited about the idea because they have cousins in Winnipeg they are really close to,” Ian Byers told Metro.
However, his sons proceeded to have a minor meltdown when their parents admitted they were actually leaving that morning to hang out with Mickey Mouse.
