LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Children are no longer welcome at Walt Disney World's swankiest restaurant.
Victoria and Albert's in the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa says children under ten years old are no longer welcome.
The restaurant's general manager says based on research and feedback, it was the right move to make for a better dining experience for adults.
Victoria and Albert's has won AAA's prestigious five-diamond rating. But its new policy is still a rarity in the restaurant business.
Nice! I'll have to hit that restaurant next time I go.
I just joined this community with a new journal I created after discovering that I am pregnant.
I am 25 years old and married. My husband and I are not interested in parenting children for many reasons. This pregnancy is the result of my irresponsibility regarding my reproductive health. We plan to find a loving adoptive home for this child.
I joined this community for the support of other women who choose not to parent children. I've already gotten a taste of all the "Yay, babies!" that goes along with pregnancy. It seems that people assume that if you are not having an abortion, you're thrilled to be pregnant and can't wait to have a baby. That's not me!
I know that not having/parenting children is a valid choice but it helps to hear from other women who know the same thing. :)
I'm also a fairly cheerful aunty of two (and aunty by-de-factoish-something-or-other to a third). I don't hate children. I don't see hating children as necessarily part of the whole "childfree" business. I just admit that I am most definitely *not* a "kid person". (At least, between the ages of about 6 months and 12 years).
As for my reasons: I have chronic endogenous depression, for which I am on medication. If I got pregnant, I'd have to come off the medication, which means a free trip back to hell. There's also some fairly strong evidence that the depression is at least partly heritable (which means there's a 50% chance that a child of mine could be prone to it). I came to the conclusion that it really isn't fair to hand something like that to a baby without being able to ask first.
There's another facet to it, as well. I'm deeply selfish, and self-centred. I *like* having enough time to be able to play computer games, and go out shopping. I like being able to think "oh, I'll have to stay late at work today". I like being able to plan holidays in the middle of the school term. I like the convenience of a child-free lifestyle. I don't want to give it up, and I don't see why I should have to.
So I'm childfree by choice. I'm aware it isn't everyone's cup of tea. I don't advocate it as something everyone should do - but neither do I feel that I should be criminalised for choosing not to have children.
Dear MoveOn member,
Hurricane Katrina's toll on communities, homes and lives has devastated the nation. Now victims must face the daunting question of where to go next—and we can help.
Tens of thousands of newly homeless families are being bused to a stadium in Houston, where they may wait for weeks or months. At least 80,000 are competing for area shelters, and countless more are in motels, cars, or wherever they can stay out of the elements. The Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Red Cross are scrambling to find shelter for the displaced.
This morning, we've launched an emergency national housing drive to connect your empty beds with hurricane victims who desperately need a place to wait out the storm. You can post your offer of housing (a spare room, extra bed, even a decent couch) and search for available housing online at:
