This is the hilarious moment a mum tried to surprise her twins with a holiday to Disneyland – only for one of them to burst into tears because she’d rather go to school.
Heather Lisle, 32, and partner Tom, 30, from Finchdean, East Hampshire, had decided to surprise their identical twin daughters Poppy and Ruby, six, with a family holiday to Disneyland Paris on April 20.
Heather, the owner of a maintenance company and Tom, a recruitment consultant, packed their daughters’ suitcases and told them they were dropping their grandmother, Emma, 53, off at the airport before school starts.
They successfully tricked their daughters, who are in primary school, into plain clothes by telling them it was a ‘non-school uniform day.’
When they arrived at Southampton airport, the parents whipped out two boarding passes and announced that instead of going to school, they’d be jetting off on a plane to Paris.

But while Ruby jumped with happiness into her mother’s arms, her twin Poppy burst into a flood of tears and had to be consoled by her father.
While sobbing, Poppy began chanting ‘But I want to go to school.’
‘I want to go to school and then after school we can go’ she added.
Unmoved, Poppy retired to the seat of their car, while mother Heather tried to cheer her up with the thought of meeting ‘Mickey, Minnie and Spiderman.’
The heartwarming moment was captured on video and posted online, with the post racking up more than 2,000 reactions from other parents who found it hilarious.
Heather explained: ‘The night before I told them their teacher had just emailed and it was a non-school uniform day. They said that was really cool.’
‘We said we were dropping their nan at the airport and that’s why we had the big suitcase out because we were letting her borrow it.’
‘It was Ruby’s turn to take the register down to the office so she was getting really irate and stroppy saying if we made her late then we were going to be in trouble and Poppy was in her own little world.’

‘When we got to the airport, we started the video in the car park. They were saying ‘why are we here? We’re going to be late’ and literally kicking off.’
‘I told them they weren’t going to school and we had a surprise, we got out the boarding passes and Poppy started kicking off. Ruby was saying we were going to be late for school.’
‘After the Disney reveal, Poppy kicked off massively and started crying for no reason because she wanted to go to school first and go to Disney afterwards.’
Heather was excited about treating her little girls, especially because daughter Ruby was ‘obsessed’ with Marvel superheroes like Spiderman.
She said Ruby was so elated by the trip, that she fell into her arms and even pretended to faint – but Poppy on the other hand played the complete opposite and cried her eyes out.

However, Heather says Poppy had a change of heart when they arrived at Disneyland and even cried again when it was time to leave.
Heather said: ‘They absolutely loved it. When we left Disney, Poppy was hysterically crying saying she didn’t want to leave and begging me to stay for one more day so a completely opposite reaction.’
‘I’ve tried to instill Disney in them over the years because I’m beyond a massive Disney fan. But they didn’t really take to it until we got there. Now we’re watching Disney films every other day.’
