I work with a guy who is constantly harassing me about my and my families love of Disneyland. He can't image how my kids could possibly continually want to come back and he think I am just wasting money on Corporate America, AKA... Disney. My wife and I came before we had kids and we've been back 4 times since we have had our kids. 5 times in 10 years for people from the far north is a lot when a trip cost thousands and thousands of dollars. we have never complained about spending the money. We love Disneyland. What people don't realize is that Disney is a part of my families life. It is ingrained in our being. If you got Disney in your blood, no one can change you, Ever!

He is just hating because you are happy and he is not. - VfxGenie  1556.7 #109 8:59PM

That's exactly it... some people don't understand the purity and happiness of Disneyland, and are too bitter and corrupted to be happy in such an innocent place. - clarabelle87  194.2 #2069 9:10PM
Exactly genie! I am.surrounded with the same kind ppl - PiratePrincess03  103.8 #3536 9:12PM
If he thinks your wasting money, he probably doesn't have any. Glad you can spend the time with family πŸ‘ - xtigerxlilyx  83.0 #3881 10:36PM
Very well said. We are all related on here with Disney blood. - PrincessDelaine  212.9 #1834 9:10PM
how cute. Figure out your costume? :) - misschurro  6362.1 #17 9:11PM
Decided to do the Boo thing. I love her and that's all that matters. If you see me come say hi, I'll buy you a churro :) - PrincessDelaine  212.9 #1834 9:24PM
I'll never understand why DL is so controversial. We get comments all the time, but it's no one's business how I spend my leisure time. I'd never make fun of someone for buying a jet ski or a new bike or traveling to Hawaii or Europe! For some reason, people feel the need to pipe up about DL, though. It's quite odd. I've learned to just ignore it, but it bothered me at first because it came from my family :( - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 9:13PM
agreed. good point, too. - misschurro  6362.1 #17 9:17PM
😊 - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 9:19PM
Excellent point! - disneykimmi  117.0 #3284 9:20PM
Whoa...simmer down SoS = ) - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 9:21PM
Lol, hi Donnie! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 9:27PM
Totally agree! Bravo! So right! - mrscttlemstr  315.9 #821 9:31PM

Maybe he is jealous coz he can't go to DLand (it might sound harsh but i feel for you). We have a same situation, and its my relatives who are the haters :) - otilegna  2678.6 #48 9:04PM

You shouldn't let anybody words bother u ,disney makes millons of people happy and he is proably someone that isn't happy. Who would want to hang out with someone who. Harasses people like that. - pikarich  5232.4 #22 9:08PM
Misery loves company. - xtigerxlilyx  83.0 #3881 10:43PM
I agree...its just a part of us! It flows in our blood! - mrscttlemstr  315.9 #821 9:09PM
There comes a point in life where you can't even worry or care what people think, as long as it makes you happy (and isn't illegal or causing harm to others). It takes some time, but it's doable. - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 9:09PM
why should it even bother people what others like? Or what they DO? It's silly. It's not like it changes or impacts their life, right? You go on enjoying it and come play here with us :) - misschurro  6362.1 #17 9:10PM
I happen to be very relaxed when I visit DL. So to me it's money well spent for a relaxing vacation. - mightymike  272.8 #1140 9:10PM
He's a miserable fool who is just jealous and probs has mommy and daddy issues ! Probs wasn't allowed to have fun as a kid ! - snakeinmyboot40  394.0 #571 9:10PM
Got the same thing here too...Some friends who just don't get it and my future in laws too πŸ˜• Just gotta look past it though, as long as your happy and love what you're doing that's all that matters. - disneykimmi  117.0 #3284 9:14PM
Eh, well that's one less person you have to worry about taking up space at the parks. - Jillian  767.1 #244 9:28PM
I like how you think! - 559MickeyLover  334.6 #725 9:45PM
Boy. He sounds like a real peach! I hope you don't listen to him. What a jerk! If he isn't paying For your trips, it's none of his business what you do with you spare time! Sheesh! He must be jealous or just really unhappy. Good for you for being able And willing to do things that make your family happy! That is what it's all about! Cute Minnie's in your pic, by the way! - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 9:41PM
They are generally jealous and don't know how to have fun. - MeridasHair  346.5 #687 9:43PM
I'll be honest, I did not expect to enjoy Disney the way I did. The first time I went, I was expecting to be blown away by the prices and lack of thrill-rides. Instead, I was floored by the magic that lurked around every corner. For me, it made me remember my carefree childhood when I believed that dreams not only could come true, but that they do. But let's face it, not everybody can get past the price tag, and of those even fewer enjoy being transported to a more simplistic time. It's not for everybody. I'm just so glad I discovered that it is for me. - LittleAprilShowers  587.1 #345 9:48PM
Your experience was mine to a tee. Now I can't wait to get back. Thanks - Henny  9.8 #11137 10:26PM
Amen! I people tell me the same things! - rochellebrady  17.4 #7908 9:54PM
Thanks all. I don't harass people that want to sit day in and day out on a beach and get drunk for a week about their choice in holidays. We like to be busy and you can't have a busier holiday than a Disney Holiday! You better do what makes you happy in this life because life goes by really quick! Thanks again. - Henny  9.8 #11137 10:33PM
Live and let live. - Grindcore  556.2 #365 10:44PM
I used to be like that..... Part of it comes from an honest desire to put corporate money to work for the less fortunate. I will leave politics out of this, HOWEVER dude shouldn't be knocking your FAMILY and your happy outlet. Even if I have my opinions, they are just that... Opinions. Since having my daughter i have learned to lighten up, enjoy the innocent parts of life, and re-embrace magic. Hope your coworker can too. It is nicer on this side:) - templeclan  54.8 #4584 11:03PM
Exactly! - TikiBird  174.3 #2327 11:08PM
That guy needs to take a chill pill ! You know what it's your money you can spend it as you like ! It's the best thing to have family memories that live on through you and your family !! I don't mind soending on that as that guy said "wasteing money " on my family who I know will enjoy every bit of that hard earn working money that my hubby has worked his lil tush off . I have tons of awsome memories w/ my parents when we went every summer when we were kids ! It was the best feeling and still is till this day!! So whatever to that dude and awsome for you πŸ‘.. Keep on having wonderful trips and make those memories last a life time !! - jmza4  323.6 #31532 11:09PM
We live in nor cal and try to go 3-4 times a year but our friends and family know how much we live it. We don't go on cruises or fly to far away places. We go to DL and never feel bad about spending 'our' money the way we want. - Pinup Princess  170.7 #2396 11:11PM
His name doesn't happen to be Isaac does it? Just kidding, sorta. I know someone who is very negative about Disneyand, but he's just a big bitterbuns. - aidensmama  340.3 #704 11:13PM
When you've grown up with DL, it becomes part of who you are! You want to share it with those you love. And you can't stay away. We've embraced the magic and are better people for it :) - azcoolmom  252.1 #1327 11:23PM
