  • Interesting article in the Philiadelphia Inquirer re WDW

    First off, let me just say that I did not feel this belonged in the News section, because it has no real news value, but still a fun read...


    http://www.philly.com/mld/philly/ent...p/13822567.htm


    Disney World is not in my future. Nor is it in my past. It's in my pre-nup.

    You can look it up.

    "Are you taking the kids to Disney World?" a fellow soccer parent asks.
    This is absurd. In the first place, I never thought I would be a soccer mom. I've had no preparation - my childhood weekends were spent at antiwar demonstrations or drama class - and suspect I lack the proper paraphernalia.

    To be fair, our indoor soccer team sports as many exuberant dads, and the games have become the high point of our weekends. So there - you can be surprised by life's curveballs or, in this case, offside kicks.
    Pleasure surfaces in the most remote corners. It's a nice surprise to find yourself in a place you never thought to find yourself, and loving it.

    But not Orlando.

    Disney World is in my pre-nup because it's a cliche to go there. OK, many things are a cliche - Venice is a cliche - but this one is positively Mickey Mouse, exhibiting no creativity and less risotto. Disney already has too much of my money, what with the movies about the talking fish and the one about the talking toys and the damage done in the Pooh years.

      Woman is obviously not well-informed of what Disney has to offer. Oh well.

        I would call this typical columnist drivel. Most columnists, no matter which end of the spectrum politically they haunt, are elitists ... actually, snobs, would be more accurate.

        Anyone that can chalk up WDW and the Grand Canyon as cliches is an overrated hack who makes a very good week's pay to tell people how they should think -- like her.

          To quote the great internet troll MaElStRoM RoCkS(very familiar to WDWMagic members), her words are not smart...

            glad she isn't my mom. eventhough I didn't get to wdw till after I was married and moved here. It's every child's right to go to a disney park at least once in their young lives.

              Wish? Yes. Dream? Sure. Right? No.

                I emailed the author and she replied to thank me for the comments and for reading her column. I'm pretty sure it wasn't an auto-reply. She must not get much email.
