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 peoples 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 wed missed the Magical Holiday moment. Couldnt 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 whats best for others. Why does everyone have to have an opinion about everyone else? Personally, I like to live and let live. Maybe its 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 thats not possible.
