A video has sparked a debate on social media after appearing to show guests at Disney pushing a young child in a stroller to avoid paying the park’s child admission fee.

In the TikTok video - which was uploaded by a user who goes by the handle @myfrienditsmebarbie - two women could be seen waiting in line to purchase tickets for the amusement park with a baby-sized stroller.

The footage then transitioned to a clip of the same women standing at the park's entrance, lifting a young girl dressed in a Disney princess outfit out of the baby carriage.

The overlay text of the video read: "When Disney ticket prices go up," with the TikToker adding another caption, writing: "Poor kid was in an infant car seat."

Watch the TikTok below:

The response to the video - which has amassed 8 million views and 830,000 likes on the social media platform - has been varied, with many users sharing their mixed opinions.

A majority of users praised the guests for their money-saving tactic and revealed that they have also tried similar methods with their own children.

One user wrote: "We just teach our kids to lie about their age but this is epic."

Another said: "I fully support this because we went in May and it was literally like taking a second mortgage out on our house."

A third joked: "No because one time I told my son to go along with what I said his age was and he blatantly shouted that I was lying about his age."

A fourth commented: "I support her... why not. And I don't even have kids. DO IT parents Disney wanna charge almost an adult tix for a toddler/child. PFTT as if."

While many viewers were in support of the idea and found the video hilarious, others have condemned the group in question.

One user wrote: "The way people have no shame just continues to amaze me," while another said: "How embarrassing."

A third commented: "No way. I even explain to my kids it's wrong to get fountain drinks with a water cup. It's the principle of it."

A fourth shared: "Such BS. Parents should be required to show proof of age with jerks pulling stunts like this."

According to Walt Disney’s website, children between the ages of three and nine have to pay a ticket fee, with children over the age of 10 years being charged the same as an adult.

However, Walt Disney World magazine revealed on their website that children under three years old do not need a ticket to enter Walt Disney World or Disneyland Resort.

In the comments under the video, a girl who seemed to be a part of the group that filmed the incident described the moment as "the funniest thing we had ever seen".

What do you think? Is it fine, because someone was just trying to ensure that a kid was having a great day despite the expensive park prices? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section!
