A child petrified to meet Olaf, kicks and screams in the arms of his parents

One of the best parts of visiting Walt Disney World is meeting some of our favorite characters. Mickey and his friends, Disney Princesses and more are always on the go at theme parks to greet guests and capture the perfect shot.

Unfortunately, for some younger Guests, meeting their favorite Disney character can be a bit overwhelming.

Disgirlmagic, a TikTok user, shared a video of her petrified child meeting Olaf on social media. According to the user, the child loves Olaf and was “so happy to see his picture on the signs,” but once they entered the room and she met the real Olaf, her state of mind changed and she was terrified. She wrote:

She was so happy to see her picture on the signs…yeah…it was short lived 🫠🫠🫠 #Olaf #DisneyParks #DisneyBaby #DisneyMom #BlackGirlDisney #disneyfail

The mum, of course, made a joke of the whole situation because not only did she post the video on TikTok, but she used the viral “Oh No” sound, making the unfortunate incident feel a bit lighter.

A commentator chimed in:

Well he’s not 6ft in the cartoon so I understand his fear 😂

And another fan wrote:

TERROR in his eyes😂😂 I was like that when I was a kid!!!

We hope the poor little girl was able to overcome her fears and meet Olaf, however, if not, there’s always a next time!
