Maskless Parents Push Crying Child in Stroller Out of Their Picture in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Last updated:

As seen in a now-deleted TikTok posted by @influencersinthewild, two maskless parents visiting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios pushed away their crying child in a stroller in order to get a better photo in front of the Millennium Falcon.

When the couple begins to pose for their photo, the child is sobbing in the stroller and is seen covering his face.

The mom hesitates when posing, but decides to push the stroller away several feet to ensure the crying child won’t be in the photo.

The mom returns to her partner and they continue to pose for maskless photos, ignoring the child that is now off-camera.

There have been mixed reactions online to the now-deleted clip. Some TikTok users expressed worry for the child’s wellbeing, stating that he could’ve been kidnapped “and they wouldn’t have noticed for 3-5 minutes”. Some slammed the parents for not wearing face masks at Walt Disney World as is required by all Guests on property, even when taking photos. Others suggest that it was “perfectly reasonable” for the parents to want a photo to themselves.

And this is why there should be licenses for being able to have children. Showing no respect for the rules, and instead of taking care of their child, who is obviously upset about something, they just shove them out of the way?

Niko, you have obviously never been to Disney World. Kids cry all day there. Sounds like you think they shouldn’t take a picture because the kid is upset? The parents paid for the vacation, not the crying child. Disney should be thankful for those parents.

I agree. The only thing I would say about it is people need to mind their own business and stop acting like they are or would be perfect parents with children that never cry or throw a fit. They wanted a happy memory fir the wall. Im sure when people say oh what a lovely picture they will have a story to tell about the child. So no harm done in my personal opinion. Not that my opinion even matters ya know?

Depending on what the child was crying for, it could have from influence to significant influence on the child’s personality when it grows up. They will influence their kid future behavior for five minutes of their fun. They probably have no boundaries for the child to grow with either. Kid’s do not get born bullies, difficult kids, and criminal adults. They are made, and this is how parents do it.

That child is old enough to not be crying all the time. Kids don’t have to be reasonable and parents just have to ignore it to an extent or the kid will just be stuck at home away from everything. That kid will stop crying as soon as they get to the next interesting attraction or buy food.

Shame on them. They should have DFS or whatever program called on them for child neglect/endangerment, and be thrown out of the parks permanently because they clearly don’t care about the rules. I don’t like masks either but rules are rules, and your first priority as parents should always be your child’s well being.

Yeah. It’s massive neglect to push your child a few feet away in a stroller in a tightly secured theme park when you’re still within arms length of the stroller. under your theory, parents sitting on a bench watching their kids play it a park 50 ft away are guilty of neglect.

💯 People who think the parents in the picture are neglecting the child have never taken a psychology course or have never had kids. The mask shaming needs to stop. Everyone saying masks work dont conduct research, they just do what the news tells them to do. It’s been a year, masks are overrated.

Disney security tried to make me put my grandson 20 feet away from me so they could make me go through a metal detector at the back entrance to EPCOT. When I told them that wasn’t going to happen, they asked if I had anyone to watch him while I went through. I didn’t. They then told me again to park him 20 feet away and I asked them if they would be taking responsibility for him while I went through. They said no. After about 15 minutes of this my wife shows up and takes him and I go… Read more »

Disney World is wrong to have a mask “rule” in a state that does not mandate masks. Disney is in a tough spot. A liberal company in a conservative state. Perhaps Disney should be thankful Florida didn’t shut them down like California did.

DISGUSTING. I’m so tired of arrogant people thinking they are above the rules. By the way she’s dressed, it’s obvious she’s used to showing off for attention. Everything is all about her, rules and responsibility be damned. I very much pity that child. This is reprehensible for several different reasons. I wish someone had the guts to call them out and that they had been removed from the park permanently. And for the people who said it’s reasonable for them to want their own picture — it is NOT reasonable for a parent to push a crying child away. EVER.… Read more »

The kid is having a tantrum and you don’t coddle a kid having a tantrum. They learn it’s a way to get what they want. One reason most kids and young adults are the way they are these days. Everything offends them and want everything handed to them.

Those parents need lessons in parenting. Two losers trying to raise a kid who doesn’t stand a chance with selfish parents like that.
As for not wearing masks they should have been kicked out of the park. It’s because of selfish fools like them that keep the virus going and endangers other guests and CMs who have to deal with the special snowflakes.
Selfishness seems to be the rule for both of these idiots.

I think the couple feel entitled, they should have kept their mask on. I can see why they didn’t want the child in the photo and I can support that but acting as if the rules didn’t apply the them. Mask up or don’t visit!

Way to go showing your child is not important as something materialistic. The poor baby was probably hungry, tired, hot and fed up. Leave your child with a sitter or do like I did we went early in the morning, took her out of the park around lunch time to eat and rest then went back once she rested. Think less of yourself and more of your child.
