It seems even the happiest place on earth can test the patience of parents, and one Disney World-loving mama has had enough! We all know how exhausting it can be to stand in long lines with a cranky toddler, but this fed-up woman took her anger to the next level by calling out childless couples, and Millenials specifically, who enjoy visiting Disney parks.
After her 3-year-old son had a meltdown because he wanted a pretzel and the line was too long, his mother took to social media and went as far as to say that those without children should be banned from the park.
“DW is a FAMILY amusement park!!” she wrote. “DW is for CHILDREN!!!! People without CHILDREN need to BANNED!! Mothers with children should be allowed to skip ALL THE LINES!!!!”
Her online rant, which was shared by a Twitter user, sparked a debate on whether those without children should actually be banned from the park. Many clapped back, saying that Disney was created as a fun space for everyone, with one user even sharing the original Disneyland manifesto. “To all who come to this happy place: Welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past – and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future.”
The great debate didn’t stop there. The New York Post ran an op-ed surrounding this hot topic, claiming that childless millennials going to Disney was “weird.”
What do you think: Do childless couples have a right to their Disney vacations, or is it a place for kids and families? Sound off in the comments!
