Top Reasons to Avoid a Disney Park
I came across this "article" today:
Personally I thought that, while it might have made a few possibly (but debatable) points, I think that every dedicated TPIer can either come up with much better reasons to "not go to Disney" or at least debate the reasons listed. So go for it-what do you think?
THE REAL TOP REASONS NOT TO GO TO DISNEY
I for one am SHOCKED that a website called "Viral Travel" put out a poorly reasoned article designed to get people talkin' and clickin'.
Because it's not a small world after all.... Kinda big oceans and stuff....
1) barely any original e ticket attraction building.
Human carriers of every exotic disease from every corner of the world congregate at a Disney park just waiting to make you deathly ill for weeks.
TRUTH! The sickest I've ever been in my life was with the flu in July when I worked at the Magic Kingdom, thanks no doubt to the influx of South American visitors bringing their winter viruses to Florida with them.
R. Niles: "Walt's not really frozen under the castle after all."
They don't have any traditional Roller Coasters
I'm allowed to sit in the center section first at my local theatre.
A visit to a Disney park ruins other, lesser theme park experiences forever.... And the worst thing about going to a Disney park is that eventually you have to leave.
Disney doesn't concentrate on the dark side enough. We need more Star Wars with Jedi training in case the dark side attacks again.
And now it's time for.. Really Bad Reasons on why not to go to Disney!
It's easy for me... my girls have outgrown it.
N B, that's the saddest post I've ever read.
Because you're a serious grown-up. Seriously. And adults don't go to places like Disney. And if they do, they certainly don't enjoy themselves there because Real Adults know there are more important things to do with their lives than allow themselves to be young-at-heart in a theme park, wear silly hats, enjoy rides, or grin when they meet Tigger. Real Adults got over Disney when they were in elementary school because they are superior to everyone else.
You're right, Jo... avoid Disney parks because the only people who go to those childish places are the young and young at heart. It's no place for mature adults with families, responsibilities, and 9 to 5 jobs. Happiest place on Earth! Bah humbug! Silliest place on Earth is more like it!
Oh, we're forgetting the number one reason not to go to Walt Disney World:
Robert: That comment was pure genius. Bravo!!!
James: You have never been so right. We all still have the happy child in our psyche. Like Peter Pan, we'll never get old.
More Mobility Scooters then a retirement home!
There you are after a 10 hour flight and a pad down by a grumpy immigration officer and you drive into WDW and what do you get?
You should avoid Disney parks because when you visit you can't do the really cool/fun/mature/relaxing/smart stuff like swishing around $30 wands chanting "avada kedavra" (cool), or prancing around in expensive designer robes (fun), or giggling girlishly over singing frogs, animatronic owls, and dancing Beauxbatons (mature), or waiting in a two hour line to pass single file through an imaginary brick wall followed by a three hour wait for a family coaster (relaxing)...
Last time I went to a character meeting – Minnie hit on me. I heard she is a stalker.
Because Disney's frozen bananas are inferior imitations of the Bluth Original Frozen Banana.
In a nutshell (pun intended), prices-crowds-lines are insane. You are nutty for going. Nuts, plain nuts. If nuts, you should go where there are other nuts.
Can someone explain how the building being constructed next door to the Walt Disney Concert Hall (located like half an hour away from Disneyland) is an appropriate picture to explain how "there's always construction?"
Here is a reason not to go to a Disney Park...

It is certainly far less crowded, Jaiden.
No meet and greet with Marilyn Monroe.
You're an energetic Yeti.
Daniel E. right you are! Look at my profile pic.
Hey Tony, that photo is enough reason not to go to Disney.
