Way more budget-friendly.

Everybody wants to go to Disneyland, but a Disney vacation is not exactly a cheap affair. Which is too bad, because every kid deserves the experience of a trip to Disneyland. But if you can't go to Disney, there are certainly plenty of other ways to have fun and make great family memories. 

The twins in this video from @thefoxsaystwins were hoping for a Disney vacation, but it wasn't in the budget. So their dad used the backyard toys they already had (which are pretty awesome already, to be fair) to devise a sort of homemade Splash Mountain...complete with the splash at the end!

The kids look like they're having so much fun! Especially getting sprayed in the face with water. Sure, they would've had fun at Disneyland, too, but this just goes to show that you don't need to spend thousands of dollars for your kid to have a little fun. 

Commenters thought this family was being totally smart, with one person even making the suggestion to wait until their kids are teens to go to Disney, when it's "so much funnier." "This is the same as Disney, I can confirm," wrote somebody else.

Considering everything is twice as expensive when you have twins, this family will probably find lots of ways to be creative with the ways they have fun. As the mom said in one comment, "What they won't know, won't hurt." In other words, these kids don't even know what they're missing, they just know they're having fun!
