Is there anything better than a relaxing vacation that’s free from screaming children? While it’s great to take family holidays too, adults need time to unwind sans the rugrats every once in a while, right? Well, not according to one Reddit poster’s sister-in-law, who’s flipped her lid over his banning of her 6-week-old baby from their upcoming adults-only Disney vacation.
The baby-banning guy in question took to the AITA subreddit to ask whether or not he was being unreasonable by banning his girlfriend’s sister and the sister’s newborn baby from their adults-only Disney trip, and thankfully pretty much everyone saw sense and was on his side.
Basically, OP and his friends have been planning this trip for nearly two years, but unfortunately, one of them had to drop out recently. Everything had already been paid for so the friend who dropped out offered to give his space to someone else for free, and OP’s girlfriend’s sister decided she wanted in. The issue is that she’s just had a baby and this trip was supposed to be childfree from its inception a few years back.
OP let his girlfriend’s sister know this as politely as possible and she didn’t take it well. “She wouldn’t listen and started rambling about her daughter getting pictures with Mickey and Elsa (she also named her daughter Elsa btw) and how much fun she’ll have,” he wrote. “I interrupted her and said that the trip was adults only and her newborn was not allowed. I then pointed out that a lot of the places we’ll be going to after the parks are adults only and no one would want to stay behind with her and the baby. Plus, I don’t think an unvaccinated newborn should be taken to Disney.”

But things only got worse from there. “I was called a dick and how dare I tell her how to parent her child and it was creepy that a bunch of adults wanted to go to Disney without children. The last thing I told her before I hung up was that the empty spot had already been taken by someone, so sadly she cannot come, but we’ll take plenty of pics in our coordinated Disney-bound outfits and wizard robes to show her later. I think she cussed me out before I ended the call.”
OP’s girlfriend thinks he’s in the wrong, but she and her sister are the only ones. You have plenty of time to take your kid to Disney when they’re old enough to remember it, lady. This time, you’re staying home.
