I cannot believe what just happened to my nephew's wife and son! While my nephew's wife and son were waiting for my nephew to return from getting a Dole Whip, some family (parents with two teenage sons) called my nephew's son a "big tard". Nate, my nephew's son has Asperger's and is big for his age. He is not a "big tard"! He's very sweet and smart, knows quite a lot about Star Wars. It's a good thing his dad, my nephew, was not around when this happened. We may have had an incident happen in Adventureland. What a way to end their vacation. I'm glad his girls were not around because it would have upset them to hear people say bad things about their brother.

I so understand how frustrating and upsetting that is. I work with kids and they honestly can't think beyond themselves. I'm so sorry this happened. I'm hoping it didn't let it get to him and he knows that people are out there that don't know their own self worth and find it easy to destroy someone else's to feel like they do. I'm not one to wish bad things upon people, even if they do such horrible things, but I am someone who prays that they one day see their wrong in their actions and stop before hurting anyone else. Hope you erase this from your vacation and just focus on the great moments you had. Hope you safely return home with a smile of all the good that did happen. - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #26 11:11PM
I'm very sorry to hear this. I hope you don't let it ruin your night. Those people are lowlifes and frankly I feel sorry for them. Being that nasty is a sad way to live. But since we try to keep the lounge vacation friendly though, I'm not sure if this is the best place to post this. (Then again, the rules are drastically different now.) - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #135 9:39PM
Unfortunately, Disney Security can't make people check their ignorance at the Main Gate. I'm sorry. - susieQzee  555.8 #366 9:45PM
That is so disappointing but there a too many mean people in the world. It's just sad you find them at Disneyland too. I work at a college with students with disabilities and there are so many of them that are smarter and more capable than me in many areas. - chadwick  90.8 #3736 9:37PM
It is just so sad the way some people treat others. God forbid those people ever have a special needs child or grandchild. Kids and adults with special needs are just like everyone else inside. I am sorry that happened to your family but karma will get them one day. - aidensmama  340.3 #704 9:43PM
Even though this hurts at least the jerks make themselves known. Best answer I have used is "my son has a diagnosis, what caused your brain damage?" End it with " I did not ask for your opinion but I appreciate your help if you are so inclined." My son is also autistic and is 6'4" - let it go because they are not nice people. - Plumiegirl  10135.2 #8 10:18PM
That is horrible!!! - BambiLuvsThumper  442.1 #496 9:35PM
This is so sad and it makes me even more sad that in this day in age our children still think that speaking to others in this way is ok. I hope that the rest of their trip is amazing and that some bad karma will catch up to them! - tiggertwin  331.9 #736 9:39PM
It isn't a surprise though if their parents were in on it too. It's sad that parents would allow their kids to treat others that way. - aidensmama  340.3 #704 9:44PM
Disappointing...wow, just wrong! - mrscttlemstr  315.9 #821 9:41PM
So sorry that happened to ur nephew those kids will get what they deserve soon enough - princessVanessa  384.3 #585 9:51PM
It so sad that even in this time there are still A-holes in this world people just need to grow up and learn to love and respect each other. I get it all the time for the life style that i live but i love with the motto Water off a ducks back and go on with my life. but thows guys will get what they deserve - disneyboi805  38.8 #5286 9:52PM
I sure hope you didn't let losers like that ruin your night. Mean people suck. - GrimGrinningAmanda  666.9 #303 9:57PM
Those are some pretty miserable people! Sorry they felt the need to spread that around! - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 9:59PM
Crop dust them! - mightymike  272.8 #1141 10:00PM
I'm sorry that this had to happen. Don't let the ignorance of the few negate the many magical memories I'm sure your family created during your trip. I unfortunately hear about these stories all the time (I work with children who have Prader-Willi Syndrome). Take care and have a safe trip back home! - EpicDio  460.3 #473 10:02PM
I never understood how people can be so hurtful... Especially in the parks πŸ˜” - lampwick  310.3 #855 10:25PM
I am so sorry this happened. My son is autistic and I have had several incidents where ignorant mean people have said something hurtful in regards to my son. It breaks my heart to know how insensitive some people are in this day and age. Hugs to you and your fam. - arielchica  256.2 #1290 10:38PM
I'm sorry this happened - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 10:39PM
That's horrible! I'm so sorry that that happened πŸ˜” - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1422.2 #121 10:42PM
People can be jerks sometimes. Hopefully you had plenty of happy memories at Disneyland and won't let this incident ruin the entire trip. - Jillian  767.1 #244 10:50PM
