Disneyland Paris Apologizes For Banning A Boy From "Princess" Experience

 

Disneyland Paris has issued an apology for not letting a little boy participate in their "Princess for a Day" experience.

3-year-old Noah is obsessed with Elsa from Frozen so when his mother, Hayley McLean-Glass, heard about the "Princess for a Day" event, she wrote a letter to Disney asking if she could book the treat as an early Christmas present for her son.

The "Princess for a Day" event is when the Disneyland Hotel hosts makeovers for young girls to give them a "fairy tale transformation."

Sadly, Disneyland Paris responded in an email and denied her the opportunity because Noah is a boy.

Hayley decided to pen an open letter to Disneyland Paris following their denial, presenting an opposing side to the argument.

"If a little girl wants to be a super hero, she can be. If she wants to be a jedi, she can be.She can be whatever she wants...just like Walt Disney himself said, 'If you can dream it you can do it!'...Unless you're a little boy who wants a Princess experience at Disneyland apparently...that you CAN'T do!"

She also told ITV News,"I was so angry, I literally couldn't stop shaking for half an hour afterwards. I was just so shocked. I mean, I'm his mother and if I'm OK with him doing it, who are Disney to tell me that he can't do that?"

Disneyland Paris ended up "sincerely" apologizing to Noah and his mother and released a statement to ITV News.

"An isolated incident, the [employee'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. Of course, both boys and girls are welcome to enjoy The Princess For a Day experience in addition to all our other special activities."
