PARENT RULE #1: Don’t give your 4 year old food that you haven’t made sure was cool enough for them to eat!!!
4 year olds LIVE to spill things, and a good parent always makes sure that food is cool enough to be handled for their kids. Cases like this are ridiculous. I feel bad for the child in this case. His parents are subjecting him to this huge circus just to try and cash in or push the blame of their mistake on Disney because they are embarassed (assuming), because what other outcome are they expecting to come from it? Disney to server food room tempature? Disney to provide ‘CAUTION: hot’ on everything (which they already responsibly do). Sometimes you can’t just blame someone else for a mistake you made. Not saying they are all around bad parents for not checking the tempature before letting him eat it, but he’s four, it’s your job! Parents make mistakes, and thats okay sometimes, but don’t try to focus the blame towards the third party. It’s in bad taste.
A. this isn’t Disney fault. Nacho cheese is hot, and everyone knows it. And I’m sure at some point the parents had to hold the nacho cheese first, if its hot enough to burn that poor little kiddo, then it’s too hot to hold and you should go “Oh wait, maybe I shouldn’t give this too him right now.” (Unless the child simply grabbed it without permission while it was cooling, which I can see happening with a four year old.) But food is cooked to be hot. (If the cheese wasn’t, you wouldn’t eat them, would you?
B. what is suing going to do to take back what happened? Although its a shame the little one burned himself, it’s not permanent and making a huge deal of that isn’t going to change that.
C. they are just trying to get money from Disney. I’ve seen people like this at Disney, they come in all different extremes… the guest who complains to get free merchandise, the guest who scolds his server to try and get their perferctly good meal taken off of the bill, the mother STORMING to guest services to yell about how her daughter had to wait in line for 45 minutes to see Belle.
People are ridiculous and everyone thinks Disney owes them something, when in fact Disney provides people with the best things possible. Some people are just too miserable to realize that! :sleep:
