Hate for childless Disney fans

My husband and I will be married 30 years this Oct, we are in our 60s, and we have been going to Disneyworld since 1989. We were never blessed with children, and we still enjoy Disney now just as much as we did 29 years ago. Ignore those who put down adults who go without children, and enjoy every single trip. We do.

Ive done 5 solo trips, 6th is coming in 2019. I always get sideways glances from people...mostly co-workers. But I just laugh. They don’t know what they’re missing (fine by me....less people in line 😂) and I don’t bother trying to explain it anymore. I really couldn’t care less if they “understood “ me or not. <dole whip in hand skipping through life with mouse ears on>
That's the spirit! 😁👍👍

I have two boys and my wife and I love taking them to WDW - because we love it so much and went often just as a couple before kids. We honeymooned there in 2004, and went at least a half a dozen times just the two of us before we had kids. Both options are great, never let anyone tell you otherwise. And frankly it was that time before kids where we we really had the time to explore and really get an appreciation of WDW that we wouldn't have time for today, and now we can share that with our kids.

We have been married 43 years. Been to Disneyworld once with the kids and once with the grandkids and hundreds of times with just each other. Disneyworld is for singles or families and all to enjoy. We feel sorry for those who do not see or feel the magic. Actually we are pleased that people like that who think we should not go probably do not go.

Lately I feel like I have been seeing more and more hate for those Disney fans that are childless. Between twitter and Facebook-I see people making fun of those adults who vacation at Disney without kids.

My husband and I do not have kids yet, and some of our favorite trips have been to WDW just the two of us. Of course we travel to other locations, but what’s so wrong about two adults enjoying Epcot or Animal Kingdom?

What thoughts do you have on the subject?
People just will never get it! I was helping my mom and brother with hospice for my Dad, my daughter told him I am taking Mom out today, she needs a break. All Dad said to her was “you know where to take her” and off to the Magic Kingdom we went! Me and Daddy’s happy place!! What those people didn’t see was the 2 buttons I wore saying Celebrating me and my Daddy one last time. I have 1 and 1 went with him a couple of weeks later. Did every ride and cried most of the day. Best worst day of my life. But it’s one place I know he is always next to me on every ride.
Not for adults? He went until 2 months before he passed and my parents were in their 80’s!!

Frankly, it's nobody's business whether anyone has kids or not.
I don't see signs at any of the parks that says "All adults must be accompanied by one child."
I believe I've seen on the ticket list "1 Adult".
I thought Disney himself said it's for the Child in all of us?

???????:confused:

I think for someone to judge what someone enjoys doing is stupid. I would rather go on a solo trip or sister trip to Disney than stay in a resort in the Bahamas drinking on the beach all day. I am a go go go type person and enjoy being able to jump from ride to ride. I think that a lot of the judgment is just jealousy. Yes Disney is expensive, but if you budget correctly then you can go. I think it is no different than going to Six Flags or Universal. It's an amusement park, there is no age limit on amusement. I am actually helping my adult, married, childless, friend plan a trip for her and her husband to go next year on their anniversary.

I still don't see this as anything more then a made up problem emanating for the minds of people who for some reason are self conscience about going to a theme part without the excuse of having kids.

I'm 70 years old, have been going by myself for the last 18 years. Not only has no one ever said anything to me, but, I have never even given it a thought. It is a problem that doesn't really exist. There might be a few people who don't understand what an adult would do there without kids, (the ones that have let their inner child die) doesn't mean that they really think anything is wrong with it. I get more comments on the fact that I don't have a problem with riding any ride in the parks. (including Mission: Space... orange side) Some think that older people shouldn't ride anything that goes faster then a snail. But, even then I know that the questions are from innocent ignorance and distorted opinions of what aging is like and not being critical. Just curious.

I've been coming on this forum for a while looking for help and tips for our Disney trip in October.

Threads like this baffle me. Did anyone really expect this to be a range of comments agreeing that only people with children should be allowed in Disney? Or just to fill up the inbox?

I don’t think it’s weird if people want to go to Disney childless. There is plenty to do. I would personally not want to be around that many kids if I was on a childless vacation with my partner. I do get annoyed with adults standing in line for meet and greets. I do not get the appeal at all.
I don't understand why that would annoy you. The parks are for everyone.

Don't get in line for the characters if it doesn't appeal to you.

I stand in line to meet characters. I like to meet them, because like I said before, I'm just a really big kid. I always go with three questions ready to ask the talking characters. It makes it more fun for me, and way more fun for the people behind me grumbling "That childless hag has no kids, what is she even doing!?"

No. Many of us have dealt with these people so this is a place where we can vent about it and let each other know that going without kids is great and the haters can shut it.
