  • [Chat] Why cry at disneyland?

    Why do people cry so much at disneyland? It is the happiest place on earth, but it seems like I always hear infants that are to young to be taken to the park anyway crying so loud it gives you a migrane and the parents are to lazy to quiet them down. Then you have the spoiled kids that cry complain pout, Back in my day you would get spanked for acting like that, And then some adults are just as bad, I wonder cant you smile a little bit and cry in your normal life.

      this should take off like a spark in a powder keg...


      Personally I would say that some parents push the limits of their kid(s) attempting to pack more "fun" into an already full day. Kids get so excited about going to Disneyland. Most times they are up all hours of the night jumping on their bed, and up at the crack of dawn waking their parents up... it's literally like Christmas. Due to all the excitement the kid(s) will likely at some point need some downtime. Parents don't always realize this. Sometimes the kid(s) is scared of going on, or really doesn't care about waiting for this show... parents often want to pack as much as possible into the day and don't plan for downtimes, don't plan for those moments when a child really doesn't want to ride or wait and see a show.

      It really comes down to knowing your kid(s) and planning accordingly.

        I saw a little boy crying because his mom was making him go on FNSV instead of being able to look at the ducks which he clearly found more entertaining. Who can blame him really?
        The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

          I cried during the Remember Dreams Come True fireworks (especially in the Shenandoah portion).

              I've seen my fair share of kids crying because their parents are making them go on a ride that they clearly don't like because they were afraid of it. Specifically on IJA. Half the time I see this, they end up enjoying the ride but other times, they end up crying even worse then they were in line. If the latter happens, it makes me sad on the inside, knowing that the kid was really afraid of going on it and now the parents made it worse after the ride. I really hope that parents are more considerate on what their child wants to do and let their kid ride the ride when they are ready.

                  Yes we know how dearly you love that show and how emotional you become while watching Mickey dance around dressed as a sorcerer battling evil! We see the look of excitment on your face as you pretend to be Pan and dance around while your favorite sailing ship Colombia is transformed into Hook's Pirate ship. We see the concern on your face as Mickey narrowly escapes the dragon. And then your face lights up. Steaming past in all her glory is the beloved Mark Twain with her decks sparkling in the glow of fireworks and the smiles of Disney characters. It is an ending that brings you to your feet as you bawl like a little child having been fully immersed in the magic of Disneyland. And in the blink of an eye it is once again transformed back into a tranquil riverfront...

                        Hey, that's why I cry at Disneyland! (I also cry during fireworks and the Electrical Parade. Don't judge me.)

                          Because if one's siblings do not behave, the parents
                          threaten to leave the park to go home.

                          Spoiling the entire trip for the family.

                          you cannot help but want to cry.

                            You don't want to know how many times I've heard the "Do this or we're going home" threat.

                            Seriously, parents, it's getting old. O_o

                                Sure, parents make the wrong call sometimes - overestimating Emma's ability to walk around for another hour, underestimating Billy's fear of being turned into a donkey - but most parents have also seen their kids have "the best ride of my whole life ever!" on the one they weren't sure they were going to like. It's darn tough to make those decisions on the fly.

                                The line gets crossed when parents go to "you're ruining our vacation" or "you're going to have fun whether you like it or not". But I really do think those are the exceptions.

                                  My "threat" was always if they threw a tantrum we would leave, and I've made good on it before.

                                      I see a lot of upset kids at Splash Mountain. Mom and dad are thoroughly convinced that little Johnny will have a great time if only they can pry him from whatever he's clinging to. In another situation, I witnessed a child who wasn't bawling, but he was clearly upset/uncomfortable with the idea of riding Splash Mountain. Mom calmly explained to him, "We went on rides that you wanted to go on, so now you need to go on some of the rides we want to do." This is a fair rule and all, but this isn't a case of one member of the party being disinterested in the attraction in question.

                                      On a similar note, I encounter a couple of upset parents while grouping once. One of their girls didn't want to ride, so I explained to her that if she wanted to wait she just had to go up and over the bridge to take her to the other side of the dock. She was a bit confused and asked me, "Wait, what do I do?" Before I could explain a second time, both parents said, "It's not hard! Just go!" After she left, the mom said in an exasperated tone, "Geez, is this the Happiest Place on Earth? 'Cause I don't think so!" All I could do was watch and think about how sad it was that these parents were only ruining their own experience with their lack of understanding.

                                        I was overcome with the magic! Proof I'm an extreme Disneyland geek: the first time I went to Disneyland, when I was 6, the first ride we went on was pirates. About halfway through I started crying, and my mom asked me why. I said, (exact quote), "It's perfect. Walt made it so magical." It's one of my finer moments in history
