The first time you take your kids to Disneyland is a major milestone. It’s impossible not to be full of glee as you relive your own childhood memories through their eyes. Hollywood parents Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde recently took their first trip to Disneyland with their four-year-old son—and it was totally like a vacation you’d take with your own family.
A guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week, funnyman actor Jason Sudeikis shared all the hilarious and adorable details about taking his son, Otis, to Disneyland for the first time with his wife, fellow actress Olivia Wilde. As Sudeikis described it to Kimmel, it was a day of saying nothing but “yes” to their son.
“So it was nine adults. Just whatever this little boy wanted―we just would be like, ‘What do you wanna do?’” Sudeikis explained. “He’s like, ‘I wanna go on the carousel.’ [And the adults would shout,] ‘LET’S DO IT!’ and we’d be really, really excited and go there.”
He also brought along some snapshots to share. One in particular of Otis being ecstatic about meeting the ride height requirements is one all kids (and relieved parents) can relate to.
Once they discovered Otis was the right height they didn’t hesitate to go for the thrill rides, taking him first on Splash Mountain and then on Space Mountain. As Sudeikis explained, Otis loved Splash Mountain, but they learned the hard way that he wasn’t too keen about the other fast-moving, in-the-dark ride.
“He’s thinking, ‘Mountain, great, I got that. Space? Hell yeah, I love space more than splash. Let’s do it!’ Forgot it’s completely in the dark, so everything’s three times, five times, 100 times scarier, especially to a four-year-old,” Sudeikis recalled. The picture of the family mid-ride says it all.
The picture of the family mid-ride says it all. Young Otis is holding on for dear life and mom and dad with a look the says, “What have we done?” Needless to say they didn’t opt to buy the keepsake photo. Despite the parental snafus, it was clearly a magical day they won’t soon forget.
