Man Goes Rant Saying Childless Millennials Shouldn't Be Able To Go To Disneyland

Man Goes Rant Saying Childless Millennials Shouldn't Be Able To Go To Disneyland

It's supposed to be the happiest place on the planet.

Those who have gone to the various Disneyland and Disney World attractions all over the world will no doubt remember loads of smiles, happy times and fun experiences (in addition to crying children, stressed parents and woefully long lines).

But it seems as though one guy in particular is hellbent on ensuring that Disney is only for families and childless adults can find something else to enjoy.

In a rant on the New York Post, writer Johnny Oleksinski said that there are plenty of other places for millennials to enjoy.

"Millennials are indeed in an unhealthy relationship with Disney, having granted control of so much of their leisure time and personality to a single, enormous corporate entity meant for children," Johnny wrote.

"Another oft ignored problem with letting a kids brand control your adult life is the stupidity and culture ignorance it leads to.

"You're skipping great films such as Booksmart and The Farewell to relive second grade.

"And your annual (or more, God help us) trip to Disney World costs as much - and more in some cases - than a trip to Europe, South America or Canada, where you would meet people different from yourself. People for whom the only color of the wind is see-through. Fanny-pack-less people."

So, essentially, he's trying to say that because we grew up with Disney classics, we shouldn't enjoy them by going to a theme park where they're all under one roof. Gotcha.

"Why do the same old, safe, boring thing when you could buy a round-trip Norwegian Airlines flight from New York to Paris right now for $280, get an AirBnb and sit along the Seine drinking rosé?" Johnny continues.

"Oh who am I kidding? You'll skip the Louvre and go straight to Disneyland Paris."

Love the condescension there Oleksinski. Laugh out loud.

The post has caused a bit of a stir on social media, with loads of people saying they should be able to do whatever they goddamn like.

"So adults without kids who have always dreamt of going to Disneyland finally get some money together to go but are not allowed because they don't have kids?? Pretty sure thats discrimination," said one person on Facebook.

Another added: "I made a point of going before I had kids. So I could enjoy it to the fullest without having to run around after a 5 year old who's in tears because I didn't get her the one thing she didn't know she wanted until it was too late."

So if you're a millennial that's considering going to Disneyland, you bloody enjoy it because it's your right to.
