Keep in mind that your kids are your kids - they are who they are, and we all "hit a wall" with over stimulation. Even some adults tend to behave like children when this happens. (You know that's right).
Drew Barrymore's wee one had enough during their visit to Disney World, and she turned it into a fun photo session. I was reading a blog one day and saw this little girl crying at the sight of Minnie Mouse. It happens. My son screamed and ran once when we met Quasimodo, and my youngest daughter cried at seeing The Beast next to Belle.
Sometimes though it's just sensory overload and they need a quiet place to recharge.
How to remedy this?
Take a break when you need a break. Reschedule a Fast Pass (if possible), sit and relax on a bench, or take the train ride around the park. If you're in the Animal Kingdom Park then consider doing the Maharajah Jungle trek to see the animals, or chill out in the Oasis for some peace and quiet.
Perfect ride if you need to take a break and rest a bit in the Magic Kingdom:
Your Disney trip is not a responsibility… this is your family vacation. Yes, you have a Fast Pass, but give yourself permission to skip that Fast Pass if you need to; of course we recommend that you attempt to reschedule it rather than lose it completely. However, do keep in mind that the attraction will still be there when you're ready to fully enjoy it. Waste time with your children - time that is not scheduled or programmed. Pause a moment to look in a shop, watch a duck in the water, make a wish at the wishing well, or read the poem on the stained glass mural.
Until next time...
