You’d have to be living under a rock or completely off social media (both equally unlikely) to have not heard about the crazy curse word laden rant some mom posted on Twitter after having a less than magical time with her 3 year at Walt Disney World in Florida. Just in case you missed it here’s a link.
Now that you are familiar with the situation, let’s chat. First of all, this is clearly a person of the same ilk and manners as the crazy woman that punched a ride attendant over a Fast Pass (see story here). Second, she sounds like a child herself pitching a fit because she isn’t getting her way. I love how she states you have no idea what it’s like to stand in line with a cranky toddler. Does she think she’s the only person who can hear her rugrat screaming? I’m pretty sure she’s not the Lone Ranger on that front. And, isn’t every person there having to stand in long ass lines be that person a cranky three year old or 80 year old grandma in her mobility scooter?
Millennials are often maligned as being the harbingers of the apocalypse or something along those lines. I for one am generally not a fan of the group as I see them as being raised to believe their hype and somewhat entitled. Yes, I blame their parents. But, the running around Disney without a child in tow was not invented by Millennials. People have been going there for Honeymoons since the park opened. I have friends who did that in the mid 1990s. My first trip was in the late 1990s before kids and I’m a solid Gen X. Now that I am in my 40s and have more disposable income, my girlfriends and I are contemplating girls trips or even solo trips. Like the Millennial scum this Mother rants about, we want to enjoy the rides and food without a kid(s) dictating what we eat and what we ride next. Walt Disney himself said Disneyland (and subsequently Disney World) was for all people both young and young at heart. Age has no bearing on the happiness Disney parks can bring.
I wish I could meet this potty mouthed Debbie Downer in person. I would love to smack her upside the head with my Mickey ears whilst eating a Dole Whip and singing It’s A Small World. Maybe instill a little good old fashioned shame and sense into her for acting as entitled as the group she so maligns. Silly woman, Disney is for everyone.
