All of us know what it’s like to have had moments of accidentally clicking that like button on a post online. It’s an unfortunate occurrence that is usually quickly salvageable. However, when one is as big a name as the Disney Parks, sometimes the results can be a little more long-lasting than one might like, with a hilarious story for fans to enjoy. It recently came to be known that a fan account recently called Disneyland Paris the “worst Disney Park.” It looks like Disneyland Paris concurs!
The Disney fan account on Twitter, Gratuitous Disney Memes (@GratDisMemes), shared a post commemorating the 21st anniversary of Disneyland Paris. The account shared a photo of the Walt Disney Studios Park entrance and the message “Happy 21st Birthday to the world’s worst Disney Park.”
In itself, this isn’t a strange event; different fans are more than entitled to their opinions. However, what was truly amusing about this situation was that the Disneyland Paris Twitter account also liked the tweet. Gratuitous Disney Memes shared a screenshot highlighting this:

While this was most certainly an accident, and as of the publishing of this post, it appears Disneyland Paris has since unliked the post, it’s one for the books as an “internet fail,” considering the Park inadvertently made it appear as though they agreed with the Twitter account that they were the worst Disney Park.
Fans in the comments, however, did jump to Disneyland Paris’s defense. One shared, “Oh, I honestly think it’s improved a lot with the addition of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and all the Marvel stuff. Good food in both those areas too.”
Another fan alluded to the mistake that the social media person at Disneyland Paris made, commenting, “somebody just got fired lol.”

On the original post, some fans also tried explaining why Disneyland Paris was in the state it was in, highlighting a US domestic Disney Theme Park in Southern California as a close competitor—”It’s the worst because of fuck all investment, I’m not sure California Adventure can share the same excuses”—Disney California Adventure Park at the Disneyland Resort.
Per Disneyland Paris president Natacha Rafalski, the Disney Resort celebrated its 21st anniversary by welcoming Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger to the Parks. The last time the Walt Disney Company CEO was in the Park was in 2018 to announce the current expansion and investment the Park is presently undergoing.
Disneyland Paris is one of Disney’s international Theme Parks. It’s home to rides like Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Hyperspace Mountain—attractions also found in Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort in the United States.
