You'all can have the place. People forget manners in places like this. I'm not going to spend good money to stand in line for hours to be around crowds like they have. I'd rather head to the dentist.

We hadn't gone in decades until a few years ago. If you plan, you avoid spending time in lines. It is much better now than it used to be.

At Universal we paid extra for a VIP pass, and as cheap as I am? WELL worth the money.

A rant from a disgruntled mother that insists childless couples should be banned from Disney World – and presumably Disneyland – has been reignited on Twitter, sparking more than 15,000 shares.

The original post on Facebook came in 2018, then picked up by Reddit. But it was recently tweeted and revived, as it pits parents against the rest of the world during the height of the tourist season at the so-called Happiest Place(s) on Earth.
Sounds like the vile rantings of a trumpy, bah you will have no fun!! hate childless people!!!

Ok, well first, the 'mother' sounds extremely unhinged--like being a mother is a little bit too much for her.

Second, how would anyone know if people had kids or not?

If it is this just to get into the park, anyone can rent or borrow a kid to go in the gate.

This is the one of the stupidest things I have ever heard. There are a lot of unbalanced people walking around out there.

I would be irritated too, if I spent the gobs of money it costs to get there, and had to spend significant time waiting for food.

Personally, I can't imagine why anyone goes there to begin with. Just the thought gives me a boredom headache.

And yes, I know a couple in their 50's that goes every year, for a week, without kids. And when the kids were young, they'd leave them with grandma and grandpa and go by themselves. And that wasn't the weirdest thing about her.
My wife and I go twice a year, usually by ourselves. It’s much more fun without kids. We can enjoy the signature restaurants, stay out late, shop till you drop, ride anything we want, all with no complaining.

If you stand in line more than about 45 minutes, you’re doing it wrong.

Disneyland is for anyone who wants to pay the price and go.

As someone that is a millennial who goes to Disneyland or Disney World every year, why can't I be into going to a Disney park? I mean Walt wanted it to be intended for families, but that doesn't mean it is the only market. This woman needs to grow up. Epcot is predominantly for adults as it exists right now. Until we saw Toy Story Land added to Disney Hollywood Studios, I'd argue it wasn't a kids park. Animal Kingdom is in between.

I never wanted to actually read the various articles because it is just garbage. Pure garbage. Some person makes a stink on the internet and they cause a death-com-5 threat. I have better things to do with my time.

But I finally read it and it is stupid. So some girl wearing some dress you don't like (mind you in Florida it is hot) got a pretzle and your child wanted one but because lines were long you didn't want to get it for them. GTFU. This is entitled thinking and shows how far down as a society as we are today.

Has Disney sorted out the alligator issues it had in Orlando.

As I think there is more to rant about in terms of alligators than waiting in a queue with people without children.

Disney knew its property had alligators. It caught hundreds before a boy was killed - The Washington Post
