    Anyone who still thinks, in adulthood, that they have to dump the books of other “geek” adults in the locker-room hallway has not, by most definitions, achieved “adulthood”.

    The same could be said for flailing around and trying to find nearest-target scapegoats for current prices, controversies, or stories of brawling gimme-parents in line.

    As for why I enjoy a park whose founder had DESIGNED it to be enjoyed by adults with or without their kids, I cite C.S. Lewis:
    “Am I supposed to give up ice cream, just because kids like that too?”

      I rather have someone find an interest that keeps them happy and centered than have many people who get mad, unhinged, and with no purpose. The former means that we have a happier and gentler world, the latter leads to what we see today, a huge uptick in violence and hopelessness.

      If anything, more people should find their “Disney” and maybe the world would be a better place.

    I don’t care what other people want to do with their money or their time. If you want to spend all your time & money seeing the same stuff over & over.. go for it!
    My only gripe is PLEASE don’t schedule YOUR 100th trip to Disney during the kids school breaks! You are adults, you can go during the week when it’s less crowded!
    Nothing is worse then seeing grown a%s adults clogging up ride lines during spring break !
    Have some consideration for the folks who can ONLY go during school break times please.

      I understand where you’re coming from, but in my family the Disney adults are all k12 teachers, so they have the same breaks as your kids.

    These people spend all this time and money going to Disney because there is no judgement, poor people, or trash. It’s not real life and they would be better served by spending that time and money going to visit real places in the world and internalize some of that judgement. There is real joy in the world, go find that instead of sucking off Disney’s teat.
