This isn't news, but wow...

Seems par for the course for Twitter. Also, I don't find that any group of people are particularly ruining WDW.

Lots of kids never get to Disney at all so I can't really sympathize with her little darling's lack of pretzel while in the park. My oldest just recently got to spend half a day at Disneyland as part of a school trip he earned by placing to compete in a national competition that happens to be held in Anaheim. I suppose according to her (lack of) logic he didn't deserve to be there.

Amazing that this troll is getting this much attention, still. I guess it’s exactly what she wanted, and exactly what she’s getting. I guess it’s all over the radio, too.

I can't imagine anything worse than visiting a Disney park WITH children. A visit to a Disney park is all about me :-)

FTFY.

Disney is the ultimate birth control. Walk around those parks a few days and you are all set!

Weird. My wife and I found urgency in parenthood by visiting WDW. Maybe it's just you.

Obviously not as there’s a whole subreddit on people who want to be child free and many say the same as Steve.

I tolerate children in small doses. I never want one of my own.

Can't say it's directly due to Disney but children are not in my future.

Definitely not just me. People who share my opinion are far more common than you think.

Don’t get me wrong, several of my closest friends have very young children whom I adore and they love being around me, but still, it’s not a thing I do often. I don’t dislike kids, I don’t want any kids, and I like being in control about how and when I’m around them in most cases.

Plus, if you think Disney is expensive...

Monthly trips to the orthodontist are even worse.

Great, My kid is 2.5 years old and I'm already saving for his college and now because of this statement an orthodontist. Lol

Given the birthrate, its not surprising there are a lot of people with no interest in having kids. Has broader societal issues but that's a different issue.

I don’t dislike kids, I don’t want any kids, and I like being in control about how and when I’m around them in most cases.

Sounds like you want grandkids. :)

You can have both. Full disclosure; both our kids go to the orthodontist ;)

On our first family trip with two (very) little ones in 2014, there were plenty of times when dear-old-dad here found himself choking up at some of the moments we were experiencing together. Honestly...there is nothing remotely close in life to those experiences with your kids (and no, it has nothing to do with Disney, exclusively...just fill in the blank with anything remotely meaningful).

But on that same trip, there were plenty of times when my wife and I both had the same idea at the same time..."damn...I cant wait to come here alone with you without them".

That's parenting. It's the greatest thing and the hardest thing to ever happen to you at the same time.

That's why on every vacation we take, a separate bedroom (if possible) is a must.

And wine. Lots of really good wine.

That.

On the one hand, I've spent many, many pleasurable hours with wonderful children (hello, baby Smoothie!).

On the other hand, I almost ran into two children with my shopping cart yesterday because they were running wildly around the store.

I suppose it's a part of my autism: I'm not comfortable with uncontrolled situations.

It's really not that different. Toss a ball to them, give them food, and tell them they did a good job if they poop in the correct place.

I've graduated to liquor. But only on weekends, because otherwise, I'd have a problem.
