"I don't know how I did it. I just like messing with Dad's phone. I don't know where Paris is or what the Eiffel Tower is."

Pet, I don't know about your daddy, but I would be cross that you told such an obvious lie, not that you figured out how to book the holiday.

I knew where Paris was and what the Eiffel Tower was when I was nine years old.

$1300 is pretty cheap, no??  I thought those types of trips cost way more than that for a family.

That's only just about admission/accommodation/food plan to the park for a family for a few days. Dude musta had a ton of miles...

There's a Disney park just outside of Paris you stupid kid.  What the hell are you doing?

Exactly. She should have booked a trip to Germany if she wanted to see Paris and the Eiffel Tower. Dumb kids these days, I swear.

If your password's so easy a nine-year-old could figure it out, you're lucky somebody else didn't wipe you out first.

<wet blanket> Sounds fishy; booking flights and reservations takes more than just tapping around on these sites on a phone - even with the paypal access, she would have had to pick dates, enter names, addresses, and heaven knows what else to get it all set up. </wet blanket>

You're right. I should know because the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor and celebrated by ringing the bell at Stonehenge.

If a 9 year old could guess his password then it was only a matter of time before hackers got into all of his accounts.

Who are you going to Paris with?
Paris? Oh! No... You don't understand.
You had reservations for two to Paris. Who are you working with?
Nobody!
Why don't I believe you?

I've booked a few trips to Disneyland and Disney World and if she is saying she got rooms and tickets for a family of 4 with just a couple clicks she isn't telling the truth.  There are 8 Disney hotels there each with its own theme and pricing. So she had to spend quite a bit of time choosing(I imagine a 9 year old would take a look at each hotel)
But it does make for a good clickbait article...

While some people may do everything they can possibly do to protect against online thieves, they can't always protect against those closest to them.

They can if they aren't stupid.

Things were bought through booking services, not the airline sites. There might have been package deals or "Click here for a flight November 15".

Well they are starting out in the UK somewhere so that explains the cheap airfare.

Also lets 'reward' the brat by posting about her 'naughtiness' all over the internet and probably a blurb on their local TV station.

If your password can be guessed at all then it's utter crap.

My money is on they were hoping for a sympathetic Disney and airline to 'reach out to the grieving family'.

There's a good chance the password was her own name...

Exactly.  Even if someone books a package trip on Orbitz or Priceline there's a ton of UI interactions that they have to successfully manage: which airport you're flying from, the names of those flying, which room at which hotel for which dates, etc. etc. etc.

My daughter is tech savvy for a 10 year old and loves Disney trips - if I handed her my CC and told her to book a WDW trip any way she could, I doubt she'd be able to run that gauntlet, especially on a phone.

fastfxr: My money is on they were hoping for a sympathetic Disney and airline to 'reach out to the grieving family'.


That's the most plausible explanation I have seen so far.

A nine year old girl did not figure out how to book flights, hotel, Disney package, and Eiffel Tower tour.

Sounds to me like someone went on a bender and ordered a vacation. Upon sobering up, well, someone has to take the fall, right least favorite daughter?

Yep. Expect the followup dad-made-it-up story...

It really surprises me how many people don't think a 9 year old could do this.  The only reason I couldn't have done it when I was 9 is that the web hadn't been invented yet.  It's not rocket science.

Pfft.
Close frind of close friend was called to the school at the end of camp week at expensive Sydney school, expecting  13yo daughter had misbehaved.
In fact, daughter and friend had been sprung by vacationing teacher in Sydney airport, returning from week in NY seeing broadway shows and staying in 5 star hotel, having submitted family reasons excuse for camp.  All paid for out of drug dealing.
On further investigation, it turned out this was their second annual trip.

My Daughter hacked my gmail account when she was 9.  She wanted to watch a youtube video that was restricted for the age thing.

     I have strong passwords.  I used to work in a datanocc.  How she did it is still a mystery.   Though she has had her own computer and broadband internet since she was about 5 and can type about 160 wpm.  My guess is that she stole my phone and used the lost password thing and everything on my phone is saved passwords (I know, I know).

     I do like to have a drink or two in the evening so I think that's probably it.  Sneaky little brat hacked my phone, but my pin is not all that hard to guess if you know me as well as my daughter(s) do.
