Would You/Would You Have Married Someone Who Hates Disney?

I think for a lot of us it would be really hard to do deal with this situation. I think I could learn to love other places, but it would be hard to do without WDW. What do you think about a spouse who's not a WDW fan?

Oof. That would be really hard. I think it's at least not that hard to compromise on. It would be hard to see marrying someone who couldn't compromise on something I like so much.

I think i would if they had never been and said they didnt like it, then i know that once they'd been they would love it Smile I know my excitement would rub off if nothing else.

Are there people who go and dont like it?? I've never come across such person Wink

You know we say things like that in jest, but it really is hard NOT to have a good time there. I mean you have to really be trying to not have fun.

That's a tough one! I love my husband..and I guess if he hated Disney then I wouldn't force it on him...but I'd still go!
That's so hard to imagine though since Disney is so much of who we are as a couple. In a "normal" situation I know that would sound weird but I am sure you guys get that feeling!

Yeah I suppose that could be your special place for "me time." A nice solo trip now and again. Probably wouldn't get to go as often as I'd like if the spouse didn't care for it though.

I think the point Robyn makes is valid actually. They'd have to be a seriously grumpy person to not at least be able to go along to WDW as a compromise. It's not like they pull teeth there or something.

I went with a friend once and she HATED it -- she didn't like being hot and being tired all the time.

Luckily, Caitie loves it!

Yeah -- that hot and tired thing is BAD. I wonder if I'd have liked it as much if I'd gone as an adult in the 80s during SUmmer or spring break -- no fastpass, lots of queues without covers or air conditioning, crowds as far as the eye can see... yuck.

That's why a nice long relaxing trip is better. Much less tired+hotness.

I've heard of a few people that have been to WDW and hated it. They usually have been at a busy and hot time of year with little or no planning and just complain that they spent more time queueing than doing.

I have had the same experience as Tony -- the people who don't like it either don't like all the walking, didn't plan at ALL, went while it was hot and crowded, and tried to SEE EVERYTHING, which, as we know, is practically impossible.

WDW is definitely the kind of trip that you have control over whether or not you're going to like it.

Yeah, those people hated being hot/tired/waiting in line/etc. They would have hated doing that anywhere. My first trip to Epcot was like that and it was pretty sucky in spots. Still had a good time overall though.

I dated a guy once who hated Disney World. He swore he'd never go. Whatever. I'd go alone. But luckily, we're not together any more anyway.

I don't get it when people swear they'll never go if they've never been there. Imagine the kinds of things you miss out on with that kind of outlook on life... sarcastic waiting

i had an ex boyfriend and he liked disneyland but hates the crowds and when i suggested (when i was still with him to go) he said no. because of the crowds and i told him we can go at such and such time when there is no crowds and he still said NO...can you believe it. Then with non-disney theme parks the same NO NO NO NO NO not even to an aquarium...... but yet he goes to college which is crowded and he's fine with it....... but my now boyfriend of almost 3 yrs loves disney and it makes me happy he wants to go to all amusement parks and aquariums and he loves to spoil me and i spoil him in return and we are both sooooo happy. But yeah i can't go without disney of any kind even though i haven't been to WDW yet which i am hoping to go for the honeymoon whenever my boyfriend proposes and we get married... mickey

No. I have always said my "Mr. Right" will take me to Disney World. He doesn't need to be as obsessed as I am, but he should be able to find his inner child and enjoy the experience and the fairy tale. We live in a world with such tragedy, why not believe in a little magic?? Maybe this is why I'm still single?? Disney should start a dating site to match up us like minded magical souls!!

It's all in how you handle them. I did marry a "non-believer" it took some time, and a couple of trips doing only the things that would interest him the most but he's come around. He's not a fanatic, but these days he totally understands "the magic".

It's hard for me to even imagine this because my DH is as big of a Disney lover as me....

I still would love him just as much if he didn't like Disney, but I can't even make sense of the idea of him saying "absolutely not" to WDW trips. Part of what I love so much about him is his laid back attitude and ability to have fun in any situation so I don't think the DH I know and love would ever refuse to go to WDW if it made me happy.

My husband had only been to WDW once before he married me. His parents took the family when my husband was 6 or 7. So while he wasn't a hater, he wasn't a fan, either -- just "eh, yeah, I guess that was nice or whatever."

When I took him 8 years ago, he had a wonderful time and has bought in; not as much as I have, but you know. Enough.

Not a chance. I had to beg and plead with my ex to go to Disney at all, forget about staying on site! (I finally just booked us at POFQ one year and gritted my teeth to put up with the whining...until he admitted that it was a LOT more convenient to catch a bus. sarcastic Ya think?)

But I digress. My DF loves Disney. One of our first "family" dates was seeing Cars. The three of us laughed so hard, I was afraid we were going to get tossed out of the theater. Our first trip as a family was to WDW, he proposed at the MK and our Disney wedding is in 47 days. muchlove

J didn't have any feels about Disney either way when we married. My love for Disney and one trip to WDW changed his mind. He is either talking about our past trips to Disney or asking when the next trip to Disney is coming.

You are going to laugh but I believe there is a dating site for Disney lovers. I can't remember where I saw it but there certainly is one.
