Mother says childless millennials should be banned from disney world

Disney World is considered by some, presumably including those who visit, to be the happiest place on earth.

Those holding such a view appear not to include at least one irate mother who chose to vent her ire with adults young at heart flocking to the amusement park.

A widely shared Facebook post, first shared on Twitter by @JenKatWrites, features a woman's rant about how childless couples are ruining Disney parks for the children.

The mother, whose identity has been concealed, described an incident in which she was forced to deny her three-year-old son a Mickey Mouse-shaped pretzel he had seen spotted a young woman buying because the queue was too long.

After her son became upset, the mother blamed the woman for making her child cry and launched into a wide-ranging tirade about her view that child-free millennials selfishly clog up the theme parks.

“It p****s me off TO NO END!!!!! When I see CHILDLESS COUPLES WITHOUT [CHILDREN] AT DISNEY WORLD!!!!” the post began.

“DW is a FAMILY amusement park!!! Yet these IMMATURE millennials THROW AWAY THEIR MONEY ON USELESS CRAP!!!! They have NO idea the JOY and HAPPINESS it is to MOTHERS WHO BUYS THEIR BABIES TREATS AND TOYS!!!!“

The mother suggested that people without children should be banned from visiting Disney World altogether and that parents should also be allowed to skip queues.

“YOU HAVE NO F***ING IDEA WHAT IT’S LIKE TO HAVE TO STAND IN LINE FOR 3 HOURS WITH A CRANKY TIRED EXHAUSTED TODDLER,” the mother concluded her post.

“I f***ing hate childless women with a BURNING PASSION”.

Since being recirculated on Twitter, the post has been ridiculed by a number of social media users.

“This is my new favourite wild mommy post,” one Twitter user joked.

“It’s me, the millennial slut who just goes to Disney World to make children cry.”

Another added: “She wants to ban childless visitors AND wants mothers with children to be able to skip line? I don't think she thought that through.”

A third person wrote: “Speaking as a parent with a 3yo, Ugh, why would you take a 3yo to Disney?? They won't remember or appreciate it. Also, how can you go to Disney and expect to not stand in line [sic].

“Also if she has a 3yo, odds are she's a millennial herself.”

While the Facebook user argued that Disney's resorts should be for children, the amusement park has actually been accommodating adults who are young at heart for years, especially millennials.

According to a 2018 survey from research firm Morning Consult, at least three-quarters of millennials, 78 per cent with children and 75 per cent without, said they are planning on going to a theme park this year, compared with 58 per cent of all adults.
