It’s Okay Not to Like Disney World

An angry mom ranted that people without children should be banned from visiting Disney World because they make the lines longer. Kelly and Lyndsey reveal they have controversial opinions about the Happiest Place on Earth—and suggest people take the Mollie Hemingway approach to entertaining kids…

    OK, so Lindsey is just being a spoil sport. Disney is Disney and opinions may vary, but if it isn’t your deal, don’t hate on people who do like it. I know someone that took kids on a Disney cruise and he said it was just magic to pickup his 4 year old daughter at the daycare on board and she was sitting in the lap of Cinderella reading a book. That is worth just about any price. My Grand Daughter is super into the Disney Princess thing and I would happily pay reasonable bucks to see her sit with Cinderella and read a book. Kids like it and like it a lot. So take a Valium and chill a bit.

    I’m a guy who has enjoyed Disney, both as an adult and a kid.

    I dragged my wife to Disneyland HK and got her sick on the spinning teacups. I don’t think she’ll be going back until we have kids, lol

    It occurred to me that, especially since she’s never been, Lyndsey was making adults going to Disneyland without kids sound like an adult still going to Chuck E. Cheese. Somewhere virtually no adult would go without kids.

    Taking a one year old to Disneyland is not necessarily a bad experience.

    My all-time favorite visit to Disneyland (out of many dozens over a number of years) was a visit I made as a 20 year old when my cousins were in town with their children. I spent much of the day pushing their one year old son around, and I had a blast watching him get so excited at all the new sights and sounds. Everywhere he looked he saw something that excited him. [I will also note that his four year old sister did not have as much fun – all that new stuff that excited him scared his sister.]

    We made the plunge one summer and “fed the Mouse” as my friends at work called it. Disney World wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be, and our girls had a great time. We also visited friends in Orlando, a couple who had adopted twin boys from the same orphanage our girls came from (they knew each other back then). Our three daughters giggled most of the time, because all the kids were older and the boys were already turning out to be handsome little studmuffins (a recent Christmas newsletter confirmed they’ve grown up to be girl bait).

    After Disney World and visiting friends, we drove to Port Canaveral and took a short, four day Bahamas cruise. We all had a blast on this vacation, but it’s always good when you get home.

    Summary:

    1. The Mouse wasn’t all that bad. Mom and Dad had fun too.
    2. Having other things to do ensured everyone liked something about the trip.
    3. Because our three girls were all a year apart in age, it helped avoid “whining older teenager” syndrome.
