A MAN was left furious after his girlfriend wanted her six-week-old niece to join them on a trip to Disney World.
He complained on Reddit, asking if he was in the wrong after telling her he didn't want them on their 'adults-only' trip.
Redditor DisneyBoundGaston voiced his woes on the internet discussion site, wondering if he was a jerk "for saying a baby cannot come on vacation".
He wrote: "For the past two years, a group of friends and I have been planning a week-long trip to Orlando to visit Disney World and Universal Studios in three weeks.
"The first rule we made when we started to plan this trip is that it would be child-free."
He also added that he was planning on proposing to his partner on the trip.
The Reddit user continued: "For personal reasons, one of my buddies had to drop out of the trip last minute.
"Since everything has been paid for, he said that if I could find someone to take his place he wouldn’t expect to be reimbursed in any way, except for sweets from Honeydukes and mouse ears."
DisneyBoundGaston said while he did find someone to fill the vacant spot, his unnamed girlfriend and "hopefully soon-to-be fiancee" intervened and announced that she wanted her sister to come along for the adventure.
He explained that he wasn’t too thrilled with the option, as the woman had just had a baby who would only be about six weeks old by the time of the trip.
His unfazed girlfriend, meanwhile, said that it would be fine if the infant came along and that the larger group could "make it work" with a newborn in tow.
In a larger sense, the Redditor described his girlfriend as "a huge pushover when it comes to her sister" and claimed that she "has never said no to her before".
Taking matters into his own hands, he called his girlfriend's sister on the phone to "politely" explain that "the trip was adults only and her newborn was not allowed" — though the new mum didn’t seem to get it.
He said: "She wouldn’t listen and started rambling about her daughter getting pictures with Mickey and Elsa (she also named her daughter Elsa by the way) and how much fun she’ll have.
"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."
The Redditor said that his girlfriend’s sister, now offended, blasted him for the unsolicited parenting advice and argued that it was "creepy that a bunch of adults wanted to go to Disney without children".
Continuing to fight, he added that he thinks she swore at him out before he hung up.
He concluded: "My girlfriend thinks I was mean to her sister and said I should apologise for not giving her a chance to come on the trip."
To the author’s likely delight, many commenters agreed that he was not in the wrong for not wanting the baby to come along.
One supporter said: "It sounds like this woman isn’t used to not getting her way. Also someone who wants to bring a weeks old baby to Disney is a total moron."
Another agreed: "It isn’t creepy, sister is just hurt that she’s being excluded for needing to bring her child."
One chimed in: "I just went to Universal (Studios) for my 21st birthday, only adults. Not weird at all those places are fun for all ages, and the kid will just slow you down.
"And really I don’t think taking a baby that young to those places is even a good idea at all, and would ruin the fun."
Another joked: "I live in Orlando (not recommended) and the amount of 20-somethings that live here and are obsessed with Disney is insane, and none of them have kids."
At best, one user suggested the adults look into the theme park’s "rider switch" option, which allows guests to take turns waiting with the young children unable to ride the ride without losing their place in line.
They explained: "Honestly this is one thing that would probably not be an issue with bringing the baby — many theme parks have a ‘rider switch’ option for rides so adults with small children don’t have to miss out on all the fun."
On a rockier note, some Reddit users suggested that it was perhaps his girlfriend that was the problem — and that he may be wise to delay popping the question.
One claimed: "Hate to say it but your girlfriend is (the jerk) here.
"She put you in a bad position, didn’t help you get out of it, and is now blaming you for cleaning up after her mistake.
"There isn’t even enough blame left over to throw some at the sister — it’s your girlfriend who showed no consideration for you in this ordeal."
Another added: "Most women I know would not have thrown their boyfriend under the bus in order to impress their sister.
"Your girlfriend should have managed her sister’s expectations and never put you in the position of being confronted by her. Your girlfriend and her sister should be apologising to YOU!”
One user warned: "It does seem to be shaping up that (the author) might have a fiancee problem instead of just a sister-in-law problem."
It remains unclear just how DisneyBoundGaston’s big trip will play out.
A woman went viral after she said all "child-less millennials" should be banned from Disney parks.
However, most people disagreed saying that families without kids were still a family.
Earlier this year, Disney also banned large buggies, with parents using a stroller larger than 79cm x 132cm prevented from bringing it into the park.
