Adult Disney Fan Told To 'Grow Up' To Cry After Hugging Goofy

The internet is divided on how happy adults should be to behave in The Happiest Place on Earth.

The debate began when 27-year-old TikTok user Sarah Rachul – known on the platform as @everydayisdisney – posted a clip of her getting emotional seeing Goofy at Disney World in Orlando, Florida, on May 3.

Now, Rachul is talking to The Post about the cyberbullying she endured after sharing her heartfelt experience on social media, and why she is “worried” about young people on TikTok.

“When you see Goofy coming around the corner after waiting 3 years to hug again,” read the text featured on the video.

The park lifted its ban on character-guest hugs on April 18. It was applicable from 2020 due to COVID-19.

Rachul’s clip has now garnered over 1.8 million views and over 7,770 comments, some of which have shamed her for the extreme backlash.

A TikTok freak commented, “Oh yeah, Disney is fine with adults, but all you grown-ups have to remember there’s another adult in costume.”

Screenshots soon resurfaced on Twitter where the discussion continued.

“We Need to Do Something About Disney Adults,” one warned,

“Disney is for kids” another commented,

But the Disney super-fan had good reason for his emotional reaction, she explained. Rachul captioned the video, “It may sound silly but my dad’s favorite character was Goofy and when I hug Goofy it’s like hugging my dad again.”

Many followers took note of this, and commended the bereaved woman for sharing her insight into the stages of grief.

“Please take all the time you can to read the caption. The grieving process looks different for everyone,” commented a TikTok user.

“Disney character performer here!! That’s why we go to work every day ️ This artist loved it all the way, so so happy love for you ♥️,” another TikTok user said in the comments.

Despite the entire clip that Rachel shared, it continued to go viral and exploded with mean comments aimed at so-called Disney adults.

Rachul told The Post that while she wasn’t surprised by the backlash — “I was raised to have thick skin too” — she is concerned about the effects of cyberbullying on younger generations.

“I dug into some of these video duets/stitches and comments and a lot of the people behind the account are in middle school/high school/college,” she explained. “These are really early years to learn to deal with others and I worry about how shameless people have become online when they criticize strangers.”

When her grandparents, who were members of the Disney Vacation Club, passed away, Rachel and her parents started a regular tradition of visiting the park in her honor. His last visit to the park was in 2019.

“I was surprised by my reaction to the hug” [Goofy] Again,” recalled Rakul. “Tears came out of nowhere. All the actors there were amazing too and Goofy gave me a long hug and a lot of special conversations because he could see that it meant a lot to me.”

The Post columnist Johnny Oleksinsky talks about childless millennials vacationing at Disney in 2019.

“Why do the same old, safe, boring thing when you can buy a round-trip Norwegian Airlines flight from New York to Paris for $280 right now, get an Airbnb and sit with Sean drinking Rose?” They asked adult-aged Disney park goers.

But for those who never want to grow up, the media giant announced in February that it was working on a real-life residential neighborhood in the Coachella Valley.
