Disneyland apologizes for not allowing a boy to be a princess


All Noah, a 3-year-old from Devon, England, wanted to do was get a Disney Princess makeover. Park offers such servise as ‘fairytale transformation’ – trying on the image of your favorite character. And so Hayley McLean Glass, his mother, booked the ‘Princess for a Day’ experience as a Christmas gift to her boy. ‘I knew that there would be NOTHING he’d love more than to get to wear a pretty dress, put make up on like Mummy does and have his photo taken being one of his beloved Disney Princesses,’ the mother wrote, ‘I’m really not sure what the reasoning for your decision on this is as you never explained it, you simply stated he wasn’t allowed to book it because “He’s a boy”….what are you afraid of? What exactly will happen if a boy wears a dress? Will he burst into flames? Will he grow up to be *Shock horror* GAY and I might sue you for it?’ . The mother added that Elsa’s outfit was not her choice, but Noah’s. He loves Frozen and Elsa is his favorite character, and if, for example, a girl likes Spider Man or any other male character she would like to impersonate for one day there would be no obstacles. Disneyland has already issued an apologizing statement that said: ‘We are taking this situation very seriously and sincerely apologize to Hayley and Noah for the distress caused. An isolated incident, the cast member’s response is not reflective of any policy or belief held here at Disneyland Paris. We are going to ensure this does not happen again. Diversity is near and dear to our hearts and we want to make sure that all our guests enjoy their experience at our resort. Of course, both boys and girls are welcome to enjoy the Princess for a Day experience in addition to all our other special activities.’
