Observations from Disney World
Just spent 5 days here with my family and we had a blast. It was great people watching and I’m curious if this stuff happens all the time or just when I was there. I hadn’t been since I was a kid.

1. I have never seen so many scooters with obese people on them. They hog up the lanes, busses, and lines for rides. It takes 5 damn minutes to lower and raise the draw bridge to load their fat asses on the bus. For every 1 person I saw who was actually disabled, I saw 10 obese people riding around. Side note: I saw tons of foreigners and 95% were normal size or slightly overweight


2. its your money and by all means spend as you may, but what’s with bringing babies and 1/2 year olds? I saw hundreds of women and men with strollers and month old babies strapped to their chests. It was 90 degrees and you’re on your feet all day spending a ton of money. Why bring a baby or infant? Curious of the rationale behind that.


Great time though. I can get why some people hate Disney, but I also “get it” with the allure.

The fat people on scooters are disgusting. There's no reason they should get priority everything because they can't move away from the buffet.

Wow, fat shaming. I really thought we were better than that around here.

The fats are ruining the place. You should need a legit legal handicapped distinction in order to ride.

Just showing up at the park obese shouldn't qualify you for a scooter.

That was one of the biggest issues I had when we went a few years ago

My mom has a legit need for a scooter so we stay on the monorail line when we go. It's much easier and you only have to deal with the bus for 2 days. For those 2 days I feel so bad when we roll up to the bus stop and people see her. You can tell all of their faces are like "son of a bitch."

The new Minnie vans are the bee's knees. You use the lyft app when you're walking out of the park and they're pretty much waiting on you when you get out. They're amazing.

re: Observations from Disney World
I have 4 year old nieces and nephews, I spend a ton of time with them. I also have spent a ton of time in clinical settings with children, I just think below 4 year olds dont have the awareness or endurance for it.

just my opinion baw

ETA: for me, I would want my children to enjoy their time there and get the full experience and also have the memories to take home with them.

I'm not knocking anyone who does it, do what you want, I was just saying I don't understand it. That's all

We took our 3.5 year old daughter this year. She definitely had the awareness and endurance for it.

She still talks about it (10 months later) and remembers details that I forgot.

So...you're wrong.

re: Observations from Disney World
Just finished a Disney trip with the inlaws. It was fun and a lot has changed in 10 years.

1)you are correct, the fats slow the place down and are looking for excuses to have special service as if they are truly handicapped.

2)there were a ton of moments I couldn’t tell if I was talking to a man or a woman.

3)the food has gone south. A few sit down places weren’t worth the time. Fortunately, the characters visited with the kids which allowed us to by pass lines waiting for autographs. A very smart tactic by Disney, 90 dollar meal but you can see a few characters or you can wait 30 minutes in a line to see one character.

They won’t remember in 20 years. That’s his point.
