Guardian View on Going to Disney World Childless

Guardian does a piece on the Facebook rant about no childless couples in Disney World-

"While this Facebook post is quite old, someone on Twitter recently dug it up and started taking the mickey. It has now sparked a furious online debate about whether childfree people should be allowed to enter Disney-branded parks. My own thoughts on the matter are that something is very wrong with you if you are childfree and want to spend a small fortune surrounded by other people’s kids in a mouse-infested amusement park. "

Thoughts?

I'd go to Epcot and universal without kids.

Stopping people going to parks because they dont have kids is draconian, it's up to them.

I never did Disneyworld when my children were young - too busy paying the bills to be able to afford it. We went as a family when the ‘kids’ were 16, 18 and 22. I thought it was too late and we’d missed the Magical Holiday moment. Couldn’t have been more wrong - my adult children became little ones again for a few weeks and loved everything about WDW! It was so lovely to see my 22 year old son throw his arms around Winnie The Pooh and give him a huge hug. I have no idea why people think they can judge and decide what’s best for others. Why does everyone have to have an opinion about everyone else? Personally, I like to live and let live. Maybe it’s time to take a step back and just concentrate on themselves and their own families

I went for my 21st, no kids came and I loved it.
Its funny how different social media platforms are using this piece for different arguments, i am seeing lots of 'silly woman thinking she is entitled to things just because she has had a baby.'

I would think the ‘facebook post’ (rant) would put a different slant on the guardian article if posted.

Unfortunately due to the language involved that’s not possible.

My husband and I have no children for various reasons and we have been to Disney and Universal just the two of us BECAUSE WE LOVE DISNEY AND UNIVERSAL 😊😊😊

Don’t understand why it’s “very wrong” according to the article.

We are a childless couple going to WDW.

Quite frankly I couldn't give a toss what other people think. I work damned hard and holiday wherever I want, not where society tells me to
