22 Very good advice - Alice In Wonderland

Just watching Alice give up after becoming hopelessly lost is bad enough. But when the poor girl breaks down crying, that's all it takes for the heartstrings to snap in two.

She was lost and had to spend her time with the mad hatter. Although that was a thrilling ride for her, she had to see the Queen of Hearts chop off heads. She had became lost and would drink a drink, potentially poisonous. Do just MAYBE get home. that takes courage. I wouldn't drink a strange drink for that.

23 Tears Of Joy - Inside Out

This is the only new generation movie I actually like and my currently favorite Disney movie followed by Lilo and Stitch.

If you meant the part in the memory dump. Then yes. Its truly sad

This part was really heartbreaking

24 Tinkerbell almost lost her glow - Peter Pan 1953

I agree. Tinkerbell is like, my favorite character (old one, not the new one) since I was 4 or 5. Seeing her almost die, makes me cry every time.

The real sad part is that Peter Pan is best known as a Disney movie when it was originally a JM Barrie play

This scene is a scene that's sad but very forgotten in Disney, Even though Peter Pan is one of Disneys biggest hits. But this scene is where Tinkerbell just saved Peter's life and gets stuck under some rubble from the explosion that almost killed Peter and and almost dies. Peter goes off looking for Tink shouting "Tinkerbell? " Then finally finds her. Then he says stuff like "Wha-Your not gonna give up now are you? " And Tink's light almost flickers out. It made me feel bad for Peter and Tink. - WaltDisneytoptens1937

25 Goodbye Boo - Monsters, Inc. 2002
26 Baymax dies in the portal. - Big Hero 6
27 You really are a bad guy - Wreck-it-Ralph

Vanellope thinks Ralph betrayed while Ralph thinks he's protecting Vanellope

28 Anna Freezes - Frozen

Frozen haters need to get over themselves. This is a sad scene. There have been sadder, but that doesn't make this one not be sad itself and certainly not "funny" as some of you have unfortunately claimed.

29 Ella's mother dies - Cinderella 2015
30 Fawn cries because she will never see Gruff again - Tinkerbell And The Legend Of The Neverbeast 2014

This part is so sad! I love all of the movies and I would watch over and over again on a rainy day but when I watched this movie I was crying so much and I could not watch this anymore because it is so said. Fawn is my favorite fairy and Gruff is my favorite animal of Pixie Hollow and it was so sad when everyone was saying goodbye and especially Fawn because she said she loved him and I thought that they were going to live happily ever after and I really hope that they make another Tinker bell where they find a way to get Gruff back because that would be my favorite movie! I love these movies though and this on is my favorite because of all the hearts it touched and mine it touched the most! I love these movies and they better make more because if they don't I will be so sad.

This is totally sad because this scene makes me cry. If genies are real, I will wish to make Tinkerbell true and I will also wish to make Gruff will not sleep for a thousand years so that Fawn and the fairies will play with him and be happy and I'll so wish to make fairies and Gruff live for a thousand years (ageless) like vampires.

I saw this movie like a thousand times and I always cryied at this part. I knew this was coming (it�'s a bit predictable) and couldn�'t stop my tears going down my cheeks.
I think I�'ve never cried that much with any other Disney film, it was really sad.
I would really have loved them being all together, but sometimes you have to put some realism, so this is what you get.

31 Kerchak Dies - Tarzan

This is a really underrated scene, how Kerchak finally calls Tarzan his son before he dies

34 Rapunzel gets locked up in the tower - Tangled
35 Gurgi's Death - The Black Cauldron

Come on! How can no one think of this? I cried so many times watching this scene. Poor Gurgi. He thinks that no one cares about him. He's still on my top 10 list of fave characters, and I'm pretty sure he's 1 or 2 on my saddest deaths list. And that's out of several different movies and books.

36 Ralph almost dies - Wreck It Ralph

"I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good and that's not bad. There's no one I'd rather be than me."

When he learned from his mistakes and of who he really was: himself, I realized he just wanted to be known more than who he thought he was, and when he finally learned his lesson, he was about to die for it. He did get saved, but this scene is still very emotional. - BoltMarksman
