    Hi guys. I just thought I'd share with you all an interesting news article I saw while on Microsoft Edge earlier:

    [URL unfurl="true"]https://www.msn.com/en-gb/lifestyle...purs-online-debate/ar-AAF0Tk5?ocid=spartanntp[/URL]

    Basically, if you don't want to read the article, it's about a mother who thinks that Disney World should ban guests without children.


    What do you guys think? I personally think that Disney is a place that should be open to everyone; I believe even Walt Disney himself said that it was a park designed for young and old alike.

    If parents agree to keep their kids out of our pubs in return then I'll consider it a deal.

    If Walt could overlook his notorious anti-semitism and allow Jews into Disneyland, then we must all tolerate childless millenials.

    It may sound like unsubstantiated urban legend, but all I'm saying is, wait till you hear what comes out of his mouth after he's thawed from his cryogenic state. Although first, we should ask him which way he wants to vote in this thread.

    Why don't they have a children and parent only days once a month? Then problem solved. A take on what @MattyH say's above, we could have a child free day once a month too.

    I'm a big kid at heart.
    All 3 of my kids have grown up.
    Jess is strongly advised not to have children for medical reasons and there are many childless couple out there through no thought of there own.

    So us adults without children shouldn't be discriminated against visiting a Theme Park.

    I will never understand people's obsession of telling others what they can and can't do. If what they are doing has no consequences on anyone else then let them do whatever they want.

    For the record even places like the Legoland Discovery Centres have adult nights so they can see the Miniland. These are places that almost have nothing to interest adults anyway, Disneyland has always been about everyone.

    Where do you then draw the line as to what constitutes a child. Under 12? Under 15? Under 18? And then what's to stop people identifying as children?

    The whole concept of Disney banning guests who do not have children is, of course, a stupid one and a non-starter. Disney theme parks are primarily family theme parks but they have attractions that appeal to everyone. Walt's very own dedication of Disneyland made it clear that the park was for young and old alike.

    Walt was a child at heart. He enjoyed being in Disneyland just as much as his guests did. Yes he built the park so that others could find happiness but it gave him so much joy as well; his very own railroad, steam boat, cruise around the jungle.

    Very much supportive of this at Gulliver's - it creates a much better atmosphere and prevents a bunch of coaster boys whoring the Antelope all day.

    Doesn't strike me as something that would work at Disney though, Disney go out of their way to attract adult only groups.

    Blaming "millennials" for queues at Disney when I have to endure screaming children who are too young to understand queuing concept because you couldn't keep you legs shut...

    Some daft bint had a rant months ago and it's been recycled by the internet because it didn't get recognition last time... The NYT article is the WORST thing too... Like seriously?

    Gulliver's works because they are far smaller and specifically designed for the age range... But they do allow an escort if you're so inclined and contact the park in advance... The guy at Matlock Bath was very nice about the whole thing...

    Giving this story attention just allows these sort of people to believe their opinion is right... And continues this nonsense about young adults Vs baby boomers...

    The writer of that article knows exactly what they are doing. The whole point of it is to just make people needlessly angry for muh clickbait , so if people are spreading it around showing their outrage they are giving them exactly what they want.

    I wonder what experiences this person has had that makes them feel this way. Are they just selfish and want fewer people in the park?

    I really don't understand the bit about adults giving places a bad atmosphere. I can't believe it's that big of a problem, and if people are breaking the parks rules, then just ask them to leave.

    I just don't see why it would need to be only parents? Entitlement?

    It's part of this attitude some breeders have that any childless adult is automatically a kiddyfiddler.
    Because, of course, no child has ever been harmed by an adult with children of their own.

    I'd go with under 16s with proof of age required for entry.

    I'll stop going to Disney as long as the little scrotes stop stink bombing the only subway crossing in town, stop smashing wing mirrors off parked cars and stop thowing stones off motorway bridges. Sound like a fair deal?

    P.S. Entitled Parents - You can have Disney but Europa Park is mine.

    You can’t properly drink around the world at Epcot when you have children
