THE HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH — Look, I love Disneyland, but I know that going as a parent must be pretty hard.
Trying not to lose your kids in those huge crowds, balancing everyone's different interests on your itinerary, keeping all your kids happy despite the heat and long lines — every parent who endures a Disneyland trip with kids probably comes out the other side a stronger, more resilient person.
But at the end of the day, it's worth it to see the smiles on your kids' faces, right? Right? Maybe? Ask you in a few weeks once you've had some time to rest your feet? OK.
Fortunately, most parents understand the struggle and you are not alone. In fact, in this video, comedian John Crist perfectly summarizes what it feels like to be a parent at one of the Disney parks, and it's hilariously spot on.
Yesterday's Have You Seen This?
Crist wanders around the park, complaining about the high prices of the merchandise and the long lines. Even if you aren't a parent, you'll probably relate to a lot of it. I mean, who among us hasn't wanted to fake a leg injury to get out of waiting in the "to infinity and beyond" length "Toy Story" line?
Enjoy the video and make sure to watch it as preparation if you're gearing up for a big end-of-the-summer Disney trip.
