Is Disney too squeaky clean for your taste? Laugh at the funniest Disney princess memes, from tame to super dark.

The dark side of Disney: Get a laugh with these edgy Disney memes

The Walt Disney Company is the gold standard for wholesome entertainment. The Disney aesthetic is bubbly & soft, and the brand tells us you never have to grow up and there’s a kid in all of us. People eat up that crap, and the cult of Disney is a powerful one, best shown in the massive groups of people who continue to visit Disney theme parks in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Disney fandom has created new perceptions of the classic films that iconized the Disney brand. For every traditional Disney cosplayer, you’ll find two Disney character re-imaginings whether it be a painting of Aladdin with gauges or a sleeve tattoo of Snow White in fishnets. Edge-lords can’t seem to stay away from Disney and tarnish the idealized visions of famous Disney imagery.

The dark side of Disney is best shown on Twitter in Disney memes. While most Disney memes embrace the fluffiness of the Disney aesthetic, other memes use the brand to tackle dark subjects and bring edge to the otherwise family-friendly brand. Check out some of the best edgy Disney memes we could find on Twitter.

This hilarious edition to Twitter’s Disney memes captures the secret fondness some of us have for hand sanitizer, thanks to some precious memories of Barton’s vodka.

Pitch black

Speaking of vodka, this pick about over consumption is one of the gloomiest of Twitter’s Disney memes. In 2021, sometimes we all feel like Alice.

This meme is perhaps meant to be cute, but is nothing short of creepy. If there’s anything darker than ignoring the world’s implosion, masked up spending money at Disney World, we don’t know what it is. 

We leave you with the darkest of the Disney memes, one without even a joke. This French meme cuts right to the chase in pulling back the veil Disney so tenaciously holds down. The translation is “love in Disney movies vs. love in real life”: it’s just not the same.
