Disney World can be truly magical.
Unless you’re the mother of a 3-year-old who just missed out on a Mickey pretzel.
It’s hard to tell who was more upset: the mom or the toddler. (Was the boy even that sad?) The mother said this incident -- we'll fill you in soon -- "made him cry," but the tears seem to be coming from another direction.
Twitter user @JenKatWrites uncovered this post just last week, and it appears to be taken from Facebook. The original poster supposedly wrote it in September.
Is it real? We hope not. Is it satire? Got to hope so, but it’s pretty unhinged either way.
Regardless, we love the Twitter reactions that followed.
We’ll blur out some key details and foul language from this poster, who really struggles with her indoor voice -- are the caps necessary, or is her caps lock button stuck? -- when addressing the topic of “childless [people]” and how they’re "ruining" Disney for children everywhere.
(Who’s ruining what for who?)

Here are some funny Twitter responses that we enjoyed particularly.
Speaking as a parent with a 3yo, Ugh, why would you take a 3yo to Disney?? They won't remember or appreciate it. Also, how can you go to Disney and expect to not stand in line.
Also if she has a 3yo, odds are she's a millennial herself. — Eric B Gator (He/Him) (@weregator) July 19, 2019
I like the idea that all mothers with children should get to skip the lines, as if that wouldn’t create its own line of moms and kids — Bad Decision Fairy🌹🥖🌹 (@JenKatWrites) July 19, 2019
DISNEY is for FAMILIES, by which I mean MOMS who have been driven into the arms of DESPAIR by their hellspawn BABIES that have been named AIDAN, TUCKER, DYLAN, or SKYLAR.
Gimme that pretzel, you slapper! Little Tanner needs his num-nums. — Jack Guignol (@ScholarOfDecay) July 19, 2019
I distinctly remember an venue outside of the safari at animal kingdom that exclusively serves margaritas and mojitos. How is this not for childless adults? — GrumpyAdam🥃🥃 (@GrumpAdam) July 22, 2019
“I hate childless women” is “I hate my choices and regret them.” — Robert Bohl (@robertbohl) July 19, 2019
Holy balls of fire! If my toddler starts acting like an entitled jerk because she has to work/wait for something, she just doesn't get it. It's how life works! Ur #1 priority as parent - raise a well prepared and adjusted person. Now someone pls hand me mother of the year award! — Pitter patter (@anarushka) July 21, 2019
I have children and I STILL go to Disney without them. Next time I am going to wear my shorty shorts and buy all the pretzels. 😫🤨🤓😈😱 — Katie Sutton (@MommyMercy) July 25, 2019
As a single person with no kids who goes to Disneyworld all the time, this is making me feel extremely powerful. — Mitchell Stankowicz (@mstankow) July 20, 2019
My personal favorite: “and I just can’t tell him that he can’t do something. Because it’s HIS VACATION TOO!!!”
Pray tell. WHAT does a three year old need a vacation from, or for? 🤣 — Angel Campey (@YesReallyAngel) July 23, 2019
Or we could just ban these childless people.
Sounded like a pretty logical solution though.
At last check, the post had been retweeted more than 14,000 times with more than 60,000 likes. Grab some popcorn and settle in, because we could have added Twitter reactions to this story all day.
