When planning a family vacation it can become an overwhelming task, especially when your significant other doesn’t help at all.
A Trip to Disney
In addition to the regular logistics, a Disney trip involves purchasing park passes, making dining reservations, subscribing to Genie Plus, obtaining Magic Bands, and making ride reservations.
Magic or a Lot of Hassle?
While Disney may be considered the most magical place on Earth, the months leading up to the trip can sometimes feel like a soul-crushing endeavor.
Parents With Young Kids
Recently, a TikTok couple, Mallory Lee Richardson and her husband, Rhett Richardson, decided to embark on a Disney adventure with their two young kids.
Undoubtedly, this added an extra layer of stress to their lives.
A Public Display
What makes their situation particularly funny is the way they chose to handle it publicly on the internet, publicly calling each other out for what they perceived as an unequal division of labor in planning the trip.
Dad Can’t Be Bothered
Mallory, known for sharing Disney planning videos on TikTok, posted a video in which she expressed her frustration with her husband’s lack of involvement in the logistical aspects of the trip.
Hands-On Dad, Hands-Off Disney
Mallory begins the video by acknowledging her husband’s hands-on approach as a father, stating,
“I love my husband, and he’s a very hands-on dad. But let me tell you right now, that man has no idea what we’re even doing in Disney.”
He Plans to Just Show Up
She goes on to list the various aspects he seems unaware of, saying,
“He has no idea where we’re going to eat, he has no idea what we’re packing, he has no idea what we need at the parks, he has no idea what the kids are wearing. Like, what is a life to just show up at Disney and not have to plan any of it?”
She’s Frustrated by His Lack of Input
Mallory’s frustration is understandable.
Planning a Disney vacation, especially when young children are involved, is an enormous undertaking.
It requires careful consideration of numerous factors to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience for the whole family.
Husband’s Charged Comeback
In response, Rhett decided to address the issue publicly as well, creating a TikTok video to share his perspective.
He begins by stating, “This girl has no idea what the credit card charges are,” referring to Mallory.
Does She Know Where Money Comes From?
He continues, “She has no idea about the bills… what’s it like to just go around swiping a piece of plastic all day?”
The Kids Win
“I just wanna be the kids… no planning or paying, they’re the real winners here,” one viewer said.
They’re Both Contributing
“Fellow plastic swiper here. Both sides are spitting FACTS! It’s a trade off. Marriage is never 50/50,” another added.
“I’d rather show up to Disney and not have to pay for any of it lol,” someone wrote.
