Hilarious Disney Meltdowns That Are Quite Relatable
Visiting Disney is easily one of the happiest experiences you can have. Kids and adults alike love to take in everything the so-called “Happiest Place on Earth” has to offer. The movies are a reminder of childhood magic, and the parks help to recreate some of that magic in real life. There’s delicious fried fare, fun rides and delightful memories to be made.
But you can actually have too much of a good thing. Sometimes, you get overwhelmed and can’t decide what you want to do. Or you get tired of having to wait in the inevitable long lines with other people who are at the park to experience the same magic. Or you underestimate how much sugar you’ve had that day and start to crash. Or you overestimate how long your patience will last when your favorite ride shuts down after you waited in line for a long while. Or, sometimes, you just need to let off a little steam no matter how much fun you're having.
Whatever the case may be, plenty of people have had serious meltdowns at Disney. And those meltdowns are particularly entertaining because of the ironic backdrop of the joyful world that surrounds them or simply because we’ve all been there emotionally at some point in our lives. Here are a handful of the most honest and entertaining pictures of Disney meltdowns the internet has to offer. Pace yourself — but enjoy.

The true highs and lows of Disney are particularly intense when it’s your birthday — especially if it’s your very first birthday.

Everyone can have tough moments throughout the day. But staying mopey in every family picture takes an impressive amount of discipline.

Sometimes, when you have too many options for toys, holding all of them means you can’t really play with any of them. And that can be very disheartening.

We have all needed help putting one foot in front of the other when we’re having a tough day, and this adorable girl embodies that perfectly.
