(KGTV) — A mother's online rant is getting a lot of attention, particularly with Disney fans.

In a post to Facebook shared by Twitter user @JenKatWrites, an angry mom vented her disgust for "childless" park-goers and "millennials" at Disney World.

"DW is for CHILDREN!!!! People without CHILDREN need to be BANNED!!!!! Mothers with children should be allowed to skip ALL THE LINE!!!" the mom wrote in the Facebook post. "These IMMATURE millennials THROW AWAY THEIR MONEY ON USELESS CRAP!!!!! They have NO idea the JOY and HAPPINESS it is to MOTHERS WHO BUYS THEIR BABIES TREATS AND TOYS!!!!"

The mom's expletive-laced tirade goes on to say she had to deny her 3-year-old a Mickey-shaped pretzel because of the line. [WARNING: Vulgar language is used in the post below]

The social media post has garnered more than 66,000 likes and thousands of comments.

One user simply replying, "As a single person with no kids who goes to Disneyworld all the time, this is making me feel extremely powerful."

Another user replied, "Who ever this woman is should be banned from the park. Because my daughter is grown that means I can never go there again. I think not. The one who made that child cry is the mother. The attitude and cursing of that mother sets a real good role model example for that child. Not."

Despite the mom's distaste, Disney has pushed for content geared toward millennial audiences, with live-action remakes of animated films and attractions themed after "Star Wars" and "Marvel" at its parks.

According to a 2018 study by Morning Consult, 59% of parents said they're interested in visiting a theme park in the next year compared to 75% of millennial non-parents agreeing. In the same study, 78% of millennial parents said they were interested.
