    The día de muertos thing personally made me scream out loud, like here in Mexico we were colonized and took years of fight and wars to finally break free from the Spaniards and now white people get to pick and choose what aspects of our culture they get to profit from like the día de los muertos merch and the fact that disney sells alebrijes figurines when the people who make them by hand and sell them on the streets are barely making money. And on another note, because of the false narrative that they sold people with the movie Coco, I was actually asked if there were theaters and potable water in mexico, Americans deadass think that Mexico is just big ass pueblito

    Granted, it’s been years since I’ve been to Disneyland. However the last time I was there there was a group of adults walking around in biker “cuts” basically denim vests with both custom and official Disney patches sewed on them. There was like twenty of them. They wore riding boots and other assorted biker gear. Honestly, it was one of the wildest things I ever saw there. Do they carry ball peen hammers and box cutters when the rumble breaks out with the Tomorrowland Tusslers?

      @dog in the state I am from that is absolutely not true. But the moral of the story is the same, get experience in a field with a low paying entry level job, learn the trade while getting paid, work hard and demonstrate that you are worth more. Finally advocate for yourself and job shop, go somewhere that will pay you right. You don't have to work for Disney. I know you'll make some excuse why that's too hard, but excuses don't get results.

      @Andrew Penhollow accounting for inflation and the increased cost of living, the minimum wage is actually lower now. young adults these days also have much less wealth than people of the same age in previous decades. i think it's silly to assume today's youth is simply lazier and more incompetent than those of older generations.

      @dog I should also specify that I'm not referring to FL minimum wage. I was talking about the state I was in. But still I think the employees could improve their working conditions by bettering themselves as workers and find a more skilled labor job with growth opportunities. And don't make excuses like it's hard to do. Sometimes life is hard work, get over it.

      @Stephen Liu it wasn't just the last few minutes tho ? even at the beginning he says that there's nothing inherently wrong with Disney adults. he makes it very clear imo, and even when I first watched this, my takeaway wasn't that he was simply making fun of them. I haven't seen any of the comments ur referring to. sure, some ppl make jokes, and I'm sure there's also some that just shit on Disney adults (which isn't great ofc) but tbh the majority is pretty harmful and it's not just ppl telling them to grow up or get a grip or something

      @Gabriela Stan I think you're misunderstanding them. Their main problem is that the comments here are obviously still making fun of Disney adults as weird and bad, even if the last few minutes of Kurtis's video says you shouldn't think that. Also, he doesn't arrive at that point until the last few minutes of a 30+ minute video. If he meant that as his main takeaway, maybe he should've been more upfront about it?

    I did a lot of research on the evolution of fandom when I was in college, granted specifically looking at LOTR in the 60’s & 70’s vs today. Basically the research suggests that back in the day people used to consume and then create to show their appreciation for what they were fans of. Now it has evolved into pure consumerism because companies and corporations saw that we wanted to show what we loved… but it’s just kept snowballing. A fan MUST have as much merchandise as possible to show that they’re a true fan. For Disney especially they’ve gone above and beyond to provide purchasing opportunities and now we’re just stuck in this cycle where society tells us we need to prove our love and wrap our identity in the things we like and corporations like Disney are happy to helpz

    i, personally, am not a disney adult, but in response to that podcast you mentioned in the interview, not everyone had the privilege of money to get a chance to go to the parks as a child. let them experience what they want because you don’t know them or why they’re there

    I'm really glad Kurtis brought up that being a Disney adult could be due to a neurodivergent hyperfixation. As someone who's had hyperfixations, sometimes it's really not your fault you're as into something as you are and it's just how your brain works at that moment. So I love that he brought that up as a reason.

    Honestly, sure, I spent a couple thousand dollars on tickets and a resort for a few days before we went on our honeymoon, but I had fun; and I can't think of a better wedding gift for me than getting to look back and remember I probably stole six figures worth of wedding from the Disney corporation.

    My biggest problem with Disney adults is that a lot of them buy into the “Disney is a magical place where dreams come true” thing wayyy too much. If you’re gonna enjoy something, you should at least speak out about the harmful sides of it. Disney is a depersonalised, harmful, mega corporation and acting like it’s just about the fantasy and the movies takes away the seriousness of certain situations. The guy who got interviewed seemed pretty alright, just a guy who likes Disney and making disney videos. But if someone were to act like Disney’s perfect/defend the company all the time, just bc lf their personal love for the movies, then I have a problem with it. And while there’s nothing wrong with enjoying kids’ movies as an adult, I do think that no one should watch only one type of thing for the rest of their life. We learn and expand our horizons from seeing other persectives, especially in media. If a “disney adult” knew how to balance these aspects, then I wouldn’t have a problem w it.

    If I were designing a “Disney” house or any house themed after any entertainment business. I would design it so that all the references are really seem-less. Like I’d have the stain glass window from beauty and the beast but you would only know it’s from there if you watched the movie. That’s kinda my philosophy for any sort of merchandise.

      @J Hoop no lol. You take a semester off from college classes or take some online, while you work for minimum wage in the theme parks, live in Disney owned apartments with 2 or 3 individuals per bedroom at above market prices that they siphon directly out of your paycheck each week leaving you with barely enough money for food. You don’t get the same overtime pay or “perks” as regular cast members because you’re not in the union (in Florida not California) and you work the hours that union members don’t want to be scheduled. Usually closing getting home around 1 am after an hour long bus ride. They call it an internship, but I don’t think many companies value frying food and stocking stuffed animals as a valuable internship. It’s so terrible that I did it once on each coast for 6 months each 😅

    the golden oak thing actually seems like a nice idea for like resort accommodation, like if I were to visit disney and stay in one of those houses for a couple of days it would be great, just for immersions sake. but to actually live there seems so excessive, it feels like it would old so quickly. on top of that to live in one of the most popular attractions in the world And be under the eye of a corporation in your own house just feels like something that would be 1000x better in theory

    I like how multifaceted and ultimately positive your outlook is. So much of the criticism I see when it comes to Disney Adults is just that they care too much about something that is literally manufactured to be incredibly enjoyable to experience. Now I live just an hour or so away from Disney World by car, and so I know a lot of Disney Adults, and they're so much more pleasant to interact with than the people who insist they're all annoying weirdos.

    There is a massive positive when it comes to adults liking Disney. Here me out here but there are a lot of disabled adults and children who find buying the same stuff and experiences other able bodied people can get a massive strain on Thier wallet. For instance when Harry Potter came out it cost a fortune for the audible book for blind users. This was before audio books became popular. The first audiobook was about £45 for just one copy but the book was £6.99 give or take a quid or so. With adults getting involved it has forced companies like Disney to have more accessible material for all users. Walk ways in Disney land are wide, with large doorways and ramps this is one of few places disabled people can access entertainment without being blocked. Keep being cringe with your love of kids stuff people it really does help.

      I guess things were different in the UK then because those prices are wildly different than what the prices were in the US. The first Harry Potter book when released over here was like $19.99 & every subsequent book ranged from $19.99 to $29.99 & the at least for the first audio cassette it was like $24.99. So, there wasn't much of a price a difference in them at all.
      As far as the disabled access at Disney, that isn't a result of adults being involved... it is a result of the ADA legislation & them just utilizing industrial engineering & their own experience in dealing with visitors to try & maximize visitor spending & experience.

    Personally Disney is something that I’ve used to cope with a lot, it makes me feel like a kid again and it makes me happy! But at the same time it’s important to recognize how bad the corporation is, I just think people need to stop completely hating on people who like things they don’t. Yeah sometimes the extent they go to is a bit much but if it makes people happy without hurting people, leave them alone! I love how Kurtis made this in a way that was not absolutely hating on them for no reason

    On the one hand, this either screams special interest or in touch with their inner child so I'm happy they can do what they love and making fun of them for liking something sucks. But on the other hand, Disney is a problematic company and even as much as I adore Disney movies, I can't watch some of them without thinking of the employees behind them and such which kills the magic. Enjoy Disney all you want, but a level awareness has to be there for anything you enjoy. Either way, people should be allowed to enjoy what they want and not receive shit for it just cause "it's for kids." Especially since a lot of autistic folks tend to gravitate towards more "kids" things. I used to make fun of my brother for liking kids shows when he was an adult man, but I realized how shitty it was and that it was a projection of my own insecurities with being made fun of for my interests. Really just let people enjoy what they want long as it isn't harming themselves or others. Being aware of the shitty things something you love has done doesn't mean you can't enjoy it (in most cases.) It does entirely depend on the thing itself, but overall, these adults are being who they are. Might not make sense to some of us, but if it makes them happy, more power to em. I've had my interests in things mocked since I was in elementary school so no way am I gonna mock someone else for theirs. This is probably a safe thing for them and that's wonderful :) it's awful how Disney can be as a company and probably take advantage of them, but I hope any Disney adult is doing well. /gen

    I looked into this whole Disney adult thing once cause my coworker was being really weird about Disney. Apparently people use it as a coping mechanism in response to trauma. Adults will watch movies/shows that brought them comfort in their childhood. It feels familiar and allows them to escape their current difficulties. It's psychologically interesting.

    I had my honeymoon at Disney World and we honestly rarely dealt with kids, at least in our hotel! It was tons of fun, everyone gave us free stuff just because we had cute little buttons that said we just got married, including free alcohol. I went once before in high school for a band trip, but I had tons more fun as an adult tbh. Like Kurtis said, it brings happiness, which is harder and harder to keep as you get older. As far as Disneybounding, Disney is just another thing that's set fashion trends for years, like when Minnie Mouse brought in the spotted dress in the 40s or 50s! 😊 You can be as casual or as accurate to whoever you dress up like as you want. I wouldn't live inside the parks (since I want a small farm to be more independently sustainable) but it sounds cool to visit lmao

      @Nicripolas besides the rides it’s more of the atmosphere of the parks. Epcot is the perfect just go and walk around park. They have great food good new shows. It’s just a happy place. A lot of times people try to say the parks are for kids. But I don’t think that’s true and I don’t think Walt Would say that was true either. Walt made the park for himself and his family. It was a place to be creative and live out dreams. I still think the parks represent that today. People also seem to think it’s just a bunch of screaming children and tacky rides, but to be honest there are more adults at Disney than kids and the rides, attractions, shows, and events continuously break bounds on what I thought was possible in the terms of immersion. I thought that universal was on par with Disney for a while but after a bit all of their attractions were just 3d screens and what’s the fun in that. Disney is genuinely impressive the amount of time and money they put into every minute detail is impressive. The parks are just a relaxing happy place for me.

    Millennials are a generation that not only had/has to find who they are in themselves. As all do, but also do so in a world that has in many grown increasingly detached from others.
    Their challenges are not the hardships of the Great Depression, nor even of the 80s like I knew...no they face many social, political & personal challenges the world still doesn't have answers for.

    Hearing complaints lately that the experience has been compromised by Disney letting too many people in the park at once.
    One solution may be to have special family days and other adults only days to relieve some of the congestion-or is this already a thing?

    15:00 the reason they call them cast members actually makes sense. They are all essentially part of a giant theatrical production. At least, that was walt disney's idea. It's been a term thats been used for a longgggg time before all the issues they have today

    Dude thank you for being super open minded! I won’t deny Disney Adults can be crazy at times but I really appreciate you at least trying to understand the passion. I think a lot of your points were fair and I thought your Disney Adult iceberg was hilarious. Not a resident of Golden Oaks btw 😂

    I think it's entirely true that Disney Adults aren't really any different than people who get really into sports or really into other media franchises or hobbies, but in the sense that while the vast majority of passionate fans are harmlessly just indulging themselves there are people who take it too far. And by that I don't mean they're spending an absurd amount of money on merch and trips or buying tacky homes or getting tacky tattoos or things that just aren't considered "respectable" for grown adults to like and enjoy. I think when you allow yourself to become so obsessed with something it consumes your personality you're much more likely to become the type of person to riot when your sports team loses or sexually harass actors who played characters you became infatuated with, or send death threats to actors who played characters you don't like or whoever you think is responsible for a creative decision you disagree with, or other fans who have different opinions on the text/characters/romantic pairings. Because when you identify with something to that extent you can't separate the thing from yourself. You riot when your sports team loses because you feel like YOU tried your hardest and still failed, you get defensive about criticism of the brand you like because you feel like that's criticism of you personally, and you throw a bitchfit when the character you identify with doesn't get the most screen time or the coolest action scene or hooks up with the character you lust after because you feel like the story belongs to you and you personally are being betrayed by not having your specific power fantasy indulged.

    Celebration, Florida was also built by Disney, another place you can live outside Disney resorts. Super creepy, reminded me of Stepfords Wives everything I ever had to drive through it.

    I’d consider myself a Disney adult as I am extremely knowledgeable about the brand itself along with the parks, and have visited both Disney World and Disneyland more than your average person. With my intense love/mild obsession for Disney, I have found myself grappling with that same question of “why the fuck am I dedicating so much of my money, and space in my head for this corporation?” And the truth is it’s comforting, Disney has always been some thing that I’ve run to in times of stress or difficulty as a distraction, and or escape. That’s kind of what Walt’s films were always all about. Being a distraction, some thing with a happy ending. I think some of you will understand what I mean when I say everything about Disney feels like a happy ending. You start to feel like you grow relationships with the characters because they’ve been there through many phases of your life I’ve been watching the Muppets Christmas Carol since I was four years old and I don’t think there has it been a Christmas I haven’t watched it and same goes for Mikey’s once and twice upon a Christmas. In a way they’ve watched me grow up and guided me through life up to this point. that sounds fucking crazy I know, but that’s the best way for me to explain it. Disney is always going to be magical for me, but I will never not be critical of them for doing something very distasteful. When I heard about them trying to trademark Dia de los Muertos I was discussed. the fact that they even tried to do that shows such disrespect of the culture they were trying to represent. Fortunately, they were met with enough backlash that they walked back on trying to trade mark it, but that doesn’t make up for the fact that they tried to do it. As someone who loves Disney I hold them to a very high standard. I’m not scared to be the first to say when they fuck up. I hope to see Disney come under better management and to continue to see them become more culturally diverse and understanding as they continue to make media productions. Also love to see them stop being so money hungry in the parks and charging you for literally everything they nickel and dime you to death and it’s been getting worse over the last two years. But now I just feel like I’m going off on a tangent so, I hope you guys know that a lot of Disney adults aren’t completely engulfed so far into their obsession to not know that Disney does horrible things sometimes and that I personally do not agree with every decision that Disney makes in anyway. :))))

    Great video. Also I feel like if anyone living in the Golden Oaks mansions even THINKS about modifying or removing any of the Disney imagery within the house, Disney will execute them on the spot. And the all-white decor is going to look nasty after any human being stays there for longer than a month, even less if they happen to smoke lmao.

    There's no shame in being a Millennial, darling! I happen to think your generation will bring good things to this world. It's not hard to understand Disney Adults-- Disney has always sold us a wonderful, nostalgic, lovely image of life. Who doesn't want the world to be more like that? It's an escape from reality (as intended) and can easily become an addiction. The House of Mouse is super-cali-fragilisic-expi-ali-docious at selling you every-every-EVERYthing you want. Great analysis, Kurtis. I appreciate your perspective!

    2 tier Disney adult here. I absolutely LOVE this video. I haven’t been to Disney world for 8 years but I miss it. I made my now husband (who is 8 years older then me) go because it was my dream to go as an adult with no children. They say “welcome home” when you stay at one of the resorts and it made me cry 🤣 I can laugh at myself. I love Disney. It’s very nostalgic for me but I can absolutely still laugh at the ridiculousness of it all.

    A few years ago I was contacted for a content writing job for a series of Disney for adults websites. At first I thought it was porn bc of the way they described it but then realized it was just grown people who were super Disney crazy and they are serious. I had never heard of Disney adults before this.

      Honestly, if these houses weren't so big. They would look pretty cheap and I'm guessing that they only cost so much because well. It's Disney. It kinda feels like the equivalent of buying an expensive shirt JUST for the brand, even though you can just thrift for better-looking shirts.
      You can buy a better house if you had that much money. But if your wish is to have Woody stuck to the ceiling of your bedroom while you get wood. Well, I can't stop you there.
