Family buys 70 years of Disney+ by mistake. They wanted to organize a trip to a Disney theme park
A 78-year-old couple made the purchase using gift cards.
A family from the US state of Illinois accidentally bought nine thousand euros worth of coupons for Disney+, which equates to 70 years of access to the streaming service.
Andie Coston, the daughter of the couple who made the purchase, said in a video posted on TikTok that her 8-year-old's parents were planning a Christmas trip for the 16-member family to a Disney theme park, but instead they made the purchase. Gift cards at “Sam's Club,” a discount service for members, to try to save some money. The couple didn't know they were purchasing vouchers for Disney+. In total, he says, they bought 70 years of streaming.
Andy asked for help to try to solve the problem, as her parents spent more than nine thousand euros. On Tuesday, the woman posted a second video on the social network in which she said she “just received a text message in which Disney called my parents and will convert the $10,000 Disney streaming fee into $10,000 tickets to the Disney parks.”
He thanked users “who were nice,” raved that “we were able to fix the issue” and told those “who were bad” who “posted my comments so Disney could fix it,” adding: “I'm glad this has been resolved.”
Andi Coston realized her mistake when her parents couldn't load gift cards online.
