“Wow! That was a mistake. That was a bad idea,” Gaffigan said. “And I know people love Disney, and I want you to hear this: You’re wrong. It’s wrong.”

Gaffigan said that he doesn’t even remember any of the Holiday magic. “I keep learning that over and over again,” he continued. “I’ve been to Disney. I regret it. I go again. Like Disney is like my jalapeños. I always think, ‘I can handle this.’ And then a couple hours later, I wish I was dead.”
