* ''Disney/MickeysChristmasCarol'' starring Scrooge [=McDuck=] as Ebeneezer Scrooge and Mickey Mouse as Bob Cratchit. The Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come (who reveals himself to be Pete) takes Scrooge to the future where Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchit's youngest son dies. The scene where Mickey as Bob places Tim's crutch by his tombstone with tears in his eyes is beyond heart-wrenching.
** The Disney story book version features Scrooge's reaction to his own fate, which beautifully shows the real lesson about the future ghost. Scrooge shouts "No! I didn't want my life to end this way!" The "this way" part is a small but effective method of showing the true reason why Scrooge was afraid of this future. He wasn't afraid of dying, it was ''the way'' he dies that scares him; [[DyingAlone as a bitter, greedy, hateful old man who nobody loved and nobody mourned]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'' episode "Find Her, Keep Her". In it, Rabbit cares for Kessie, a baby bluebird that grows up to be a surrogate daughter. Sooner or later, Kessie has to fly south for the winter, much to Rabbit's dismay.
** What hits hardest is just the sheer amount of DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything in this episode when it comes to parent-child relationships. ''Winnie The Pooh'' actually told a story of someone becoming a parent, raising a child, and then having to let that child go with a great deal of emotion and maturity.
*** Kessie's last night with Rabbit. She asks him for a final bedtime story, which he quietly refuses on the grounds that she doesn't need him to read her a story -- she doesn't need him for ''anything.'' Then he takes her stuffed rabbit into the other room and hugs it while Kessie sits by the fire and just sobs.
*** What leads into that scene is the MoodWhiplash inducing line of "Don't you think I know?", said by Rabbit in response to Tigger happily telling Kessie, who just learned to fly, that "there's nothing holding you back now!" Ken Sansom just hit it out of the park with the delivery of that line and the lines in the scene that followed.
** The next episode to feature Kessie, "A Bird in the Hand", is depressing in its own right. Now a full-grown bluebird, she returns to the Hundred Acre Wood and Rabbit is under the delusion that it will be forever. He coddles her and treats her exactly the way he did when she was a baby, much to her displeasure. It's more painful than funny, and it's compounded by the fact that Rabbit really does appear to miss her more than she misses him -- even after they reconcile at the end of the episode, no longer calls him "Rabby."
** "Stripes", in the New Adventures Of Winnie the Pooh. In a nutshell, Tigger loses his stripes after everyone forces him to have a bath...they then insist that [[WithFriendsLikeThese he can't be a tigger]], since tiggers have stripes. He sings a song toward the end of the episode, tearfully, about being "nothin' but stuffin'" and not having a name.
--->''I know I've changed, on the outside''
--->''But on the inside, I feel the same''
--->''Maybe someday, I'll know who I am''
--->''But for right now... somehow''
--->''I don't have a name''
** In "Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too" when Pooh has lost the letter to Santa in a gust of wind. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-goCS4Kd5s&t=24m45s His cries of "Please come back! I'm supposed to take you to Santa!" are for naught.]] His face falls into an expression of pure despair. He's failed in his mission; and now has to trudge back home and tell everyone that they're not getting anything for Christmas. It all works out in the end, but you can't help but feel his pain.
*** Then we cut back to his friends, who are all anticipating their gifts from Santa, except Piglet, who acknowledges that Pooh won't make it back home in time for Christmas due to sending their letter. He spent the whole episode confused as to what he actually wanted for Christmas, now he knows, he wants Pooh.

[[AC:Theme Parks]]
* The Partners statue in the [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Magic Kingdom]] - the one with Walt and Mickey holding hands. Especially for those who still see Walt as Mickey's father.
* Just walking through the train station gate into the park sets a lot of people off. Many of them have been saving up their whole lives to be able to come to Disneyland/Walt Disney World and the realization that they finally made it just hits them.
** Seeing the Castle will do it too, a lot of the time.
* The Characters. While some people may not like them, there is absolutely nothing more adorable than watching a four-year-old go up to Mickey - or Minnie, or Tigger, or their favorite Princess - for the first time and watching their face light up. The real Tear Jerkers, though, come when you watch kids on the Make a Wish program light up, because you know that it very well could be the last time they'll ever see the Characters, and many of the Make a Wish kids only have a limited time to live. And as a Cast Member, we're not supposed to cry...* sniff*
** I'm not a Cast Member or even work at Disney, but I felt like crying in that moment too. Just seeing small children run up to their characters in delight makes me want to go, "Awwwwww". The only thing that ruins the whole moment is the moms that constantly want to take pictures of their kids. Even the older kids that are at least twelve years old running up to the characters is relieving, especially since they're a kid at heart. The ones that actually care for Disney makes me want to cry.
* On the Kilimanjaro Safari ride at Animal Kingdom you chase down poachers that have captured Little Red, a baby elephant, after shooting Big Red, the mother. Unfortuntately, the ride is often unclear as to whether Big Red survived. I think so, but jeez...
** [[WordofGod Word of God]] says she does, if that makes you feel better. It's in the radio broadcast at the end. Still, just the idea of the baby elephant, who can't survive away from Mommy, being forced away like that...
** According to Disney insider Jim Hill, in the original script Big Red didn't make it, and the riders saw her (simulated, of course) corpse in the climactic stretch of the ride. This drove so many kids to tears that it ruined the whole ride, so the script was changed and the prop removed before it formally opened. So it could have been a ''lot'' worse.
* For the bad kind of Tearjerker, leaving the Magic Kingdom, your favourite place on Earth, on the Ferry, seeing the castle all lit up and beautiful, and knowing that it's the last time you're going to see it.
* Most Disneyphiles know all too well about getting more than lumps in their throats going home from a vacation from the parks or disembarking off a Disney Cruise Line ship.
** Make that extra depressing if you ride on the Disney Magical Express on the way to the MCO (Orlando International Airport). That's especially true seeing the end of the onboard video.
* The end of ''Fantasmic!'' Just seeing Mickey steering the Mark Twain and knowing that, in Disneyland, good always conquers evil...
* The finales of Spectromagic and Wishes. They're just such a wonderful sight to see and it stays true to the Disney magic. Illuminations: Reflections of Earth always does it too during the We Go On finale.
* "So Close" from ''Film/{{Enchanted}}'' already sounds melancholy by itself. The part of ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' when Belle says, "I love you", to a dying Beast feels wrenching enough in its original context. A scene in ''Ride/WorldOfColor'' manages to bring you [[UpToEleven even closer]] to crying by putting them together!

Chances are, if Disney movies don't [[Heartwarming/{{Disney}} warm your heart]], [[Awesome/{{Disney Animated Canon}} make you jump up and cheer]], [[NightmareFuel/{{Disney}}]] or just downright [[TastesLikeDiabetes revolt you for their kid-friendliness]], they bring [[TearJerker tears to your eyes]]. With films such as ''Disney/{{Bambi}}'', ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}'', every ''Franchise/WinnieThePooh'' film, and ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', Disney animation, as well as that of Pixar, still manages to tug at viewers' heartstrings. ----
