The Most Stressful Place On Earth: The Disney Conundrum

The Most Stressful Place On Earth: The Disney Conundrum

Hot and muggy weather + farting bugs + unavailable lightning lanes = happiest place on Earth? For some people (Blaire, it's Blaire) Disney World is not a fantasy land. Are we ruining our kids’ childhoods by not taking them to meet Mickey Mouse?

Is Disney World a childhood mecca or a cruel and unusual punishment? Rite of passage or consumerist hellscape? For some families, Disney is NOT the happiest place on Earth. Blaire and Molly discuss the pros and cons of taking their kids to Disney and why it maybe doesn't define their worth as parents.

In this episode, Molly and Blaire discuss:

  • The pros and cons of taking kids of different ages to Disney World
  • How your relationship with Disney content affects your experience at the park
  • The infamous bug show at the Animal Kingdom
