I guess I am considered a Millennial and I do not have children of my own and I love Disney.
For those of you that follow Disney World on social media and the news you may know where I am going with this, for those of you who may not, here is a brief overview. There was recently a woman who had a rant on social media how childless millennials should not be allowed in the parks only families.
Almost all of my trips are childless, with the exception of my most recent. I know what it is like to be there with a tired hot cranky child. (Heck I even know what it’s like to be there with a tired hot cranky adult.). While the kids are not my own I love them like they are and it’s hard I get that. They want everything they see and they don’t understand having to wait in line. Plain and simple Disney is overwhelming to a child, and I get that. And I know as a parent you want you child to have a great time, especially with the prices you pay now days.
When we were there with kids I never once looked at those there without kids and wished I was them and when I am there without kids I never look at the families and wish they would have left their kids at home. Disney is for everyone from the very young to the old. And anyone that goes to Disney should know what they are getting into. I feel like I get more out of Disney now as an adult than I did as a kid. I think now we go more for the food but I love everything about it. I guess I am even worse because not only am I a childless millennial my adult only trips are with my baby boomer parents.
To me Disney is the way to stay young at heart.
