So I was on FB last night & scrolling down I came upon a status I just couldn't help but ready bc it was about making vacation plans for WDW, BUT then I noticed this lady said he DS doesn't want to go to WDW bc he thinks its going to be TOO GIRLIE & she thinks he is right. She said Disney is a place for little girls to enjoy but little boys won't have fun there. So they are going to Lego Land instead. I so badly wanted to point out a ton of reasons why it isn't only for girls, but I figured I should keep my mouth shut. I just can't believe some ppl, she nor her DH or DS have ever been to WDW. I guess some ppl are just that clueless!!
I think I would have commented. I don't think I could have helped myself. I'd have pointed out the Pirates and the Buzz and Woody stuff, as well as Star Wars, etc. If you actually know this lady, maybe you should tell her to order the planning DVD before she decides.
Not alot of people know the "secrets" of going to WDW- in fact I didn't know about this site til I joined- what, 4 years ago! I have learned so much more about WDW from owning a Passporter, belonging to Passporter.com, all ears net, mouse for less site. I consider myself Lucky enough to know that WDW is NOT girly. When my boys were younger- they were all boy- and now that they are older, they are still all boy! And anyway that woman was just being ignorant... if you have never been there how can you make a statement like that....
Oh my… yeah I wouldn't have been able to NOT respond either. That's insane. Granted my son (DS13) says he wishes we'd give up a Disney vacation in exchange for season tickets to Alabama football games. But Alabama football is the ONLY thing that would keep him from Disney.
I have heard of girly rides but that is silly. Maybe he does not want to go with his parents. Best not to respond as what can you do with teen boys. I seen lots of boys having fun in the parks and the Studios at times seems childish or masculine like Star Wars, the two stunt shows, the roller coaster and the Tower of Terror.
Mom calls to check on me and reminded me to pay the gardener. I love her so much.
Disneyland was fun with flag retreat and pickles. I have a home here, thank you. GAC is NOT a "front of the line pass".
She is gone but keeping signature. Laundry is getting done. My purpose in life is to help poor people in FL. Farewell, will miss you.
I can see how someone who hasn't done much research can get the idea that all Disney cares about is the 'Princesses' brand. I have to say that I thought the same thing when the initial plans for the New Fantasyland came out. An entire section of the park dedicated to Princesses? It was a bit much. And I'm a girlie-girl who loves princesses.
That would have been difficult to bite my tongue on the FB page. My very manly redneck DH loves WDW and can't wait for the next trip. He even looked through the DVC materials I had requested and said once we get some more debt paid off...he's fine with becoming a DVC member. So no way is WDW or Disney in general too girly....I mean come on, Pirates of the Caribbean is the bomb with the guys in my family.
I've come across several people who think the same thing. Those who don't check into things and do their research but still open their mouth with things like that annoy me. My son is 12 and we have been going to Disney since he was very little. It's one of his favorite places to vacation. My brother, now 28, is also in love with WDW. Like someone said in a previous post, don't clue them in, it's one less family there. Unfortunately the y will never know what they are missing out on!
Same here----- my DS16 is the reason we are going to WDW this trip and I guarantee you---- He wants NOTHING to do with girlie things. He loves Pirates, Haunted Mansion, Indiana Jones, Star Wars and is looking forward to Lights, MOtor, Action and is hoping Test Tracks(that is not girly--- I am scared stiff to get on it!!) will be open when we go.
