So yeah, I just went to Walt Disney World.Â Â Â It was a 4 day trip and I’m now officially sick.Â Â I’m convinced it’s because I over did it at this place.Â It was just me and the wife and we wound up doing 6 parks in four days.Â Â While I can safely say we had a great time, I can also say without a doubt I won’t be returning for quite some time.
And parents out there?Â How in the hell do you do this? Seriously.Â Â If I have my way I will never take a child under the age of 10 to Disney World.Â No friggin’ way.
Just in case you need to know why, here are five reasons to avoid theme parks….
Clearly that’s number one on the list.Â Â Every single Disney park in Florida costs 90 bucks to get into.Â Yeah, 90 bucks JUST to enter the place.Â Â That doesn’t account for food or any other crap that you’ll 100% wind up buying.Â Â Granted there’s some cool stuff to do but man, 90 bucks is awfully high.Â That’s like paying a 90 dollar cover charge to a bar where drinks aren’t free.Â But people pay these prices without even hesitating so you can’t blame the parks for charging that much.
The Waits on Line are Unacceptable
The nice thing about Disney is that all the rides give you an approximate waiting time.Â The bad news is that most of the great rides have waits of 45 minutes or longer.Â I saw one ride that had a 100 minute waiting time!Â Seriously.Â Who the hell would wait that long for a five minute ride?Â I guess tons of people.Â Â But that seriously blows.Â I mean a quarter of your day can be spent waiting for one ride that might even make you puke.Â Not worth it.
Screaming Children, Hell Any Children
I’m sorry but kids screaming is simply not my idea of a vacation.Â It really isn’t.Â Â You really have to be prepared for this.Â Especially while waiting on line.Â Â The one thing I am jealous about with kids is that they get their own strollers which brings me to my next point.
