A viral TikTok video showing the Kardashians riding the Mad Tea Party surrounded by 15 empty teacups sparks social media outrage.
The Kardashians made headlines during a recent trip to Disneyland when they cut in line and jumped on rides all by themselves while crowds were forced to wait as the reality TV stars enjoyed the Mad Tea Party and Dumbo the Flying Elephant.
Kim Kardashian, sister Khloe and their children “sparked outrage” after a viral TikTok video showed them riding the Mad Tea Party surrounded by 15 empty teacups as “disgruntled” and “furious” visitors waited in a “massive” line for the Fantasyland attraction, according to the Daily Mail.
“You can’t sit with us!” screamed the Daily Mail headline. “Massive crowd forced to wait as Kardashian family enjoy teacups and Dumbo ride with EMPTY seats at Disneyland while on $3K VIP tour.”
Photos posted to Kim Kardashian’s Instagram account show the family also riding on the otherwise empty Dumbo the Flying Elephant attraction during their day at the Anaheim theme park, according to the United Kingdom’s Daily Mail.
The social media photos show the Kardashians escorted throughout the park by a Disneyland guest relations cast member in a familiar red-and-green plaid vest. The reality TV stars paid $2,975 for a VIP tour of Disneyland that included priority access to rides, according to the Daily Mail.
The Kardashian’s Disneyland trip complete with VIP treatment “highlighted the difficulty of being one of the most famous families on earth,” according to TMZ.
“For them, it’s kinda a necessity, since they would be overwhelmed by fans if they stood in line and the trip would be a disaster for the kids,” according to TMZ.
The tabloid darlings visited Disneyland to celebrate the fourth birthday of Khloe Kardashian’s daughter True, according to the Daily Mail.
The decision to shut down the teacup ride to everyone but the Kardashians was made by Disneyland, according to TMZ.
“We’re told the Kardashians didn’t request that the ride be shut down to other guests,” according to TMZ. “Disneyland staff just did it. They did not shut down other rides for the fam.”
