Disneyland Paris apologizes after boy banned from 'Princess for a Day' experience

Disappointed Hayley McLean-Glass branded the decision unfair

According to his mom, the 3-year-old is absolutely obsessed with Frozen and wears his favorite character's dress (Elsa's) as often as he can. But the response to her email from Disneyland Paris read: "At this time it is not possible to book Princess for a Day for a boy".

Disney apologized for the mixup, saying their princess experiences are available for any child between three and 12.

Noah McLean-Glass is described as a Frozen "super fan" by his mother, Hayley, who says the toddler loves nothing more than dressing up as Elsa.

McLean-Glass chose to treat Noah to the Experience as an early Christmas present and sent Disneyland Paris an email to clarify whether her son would be welcome.

"I'm his mother and if I'm okay with him doing it, who are Disney to tell me that he can't do that?" She added that if a little girl wishes to become a superhero or a Star Wars Jedi for a day, she can always be.

This isn't even a gay/straight debate.this is a child. She can be whatever she wants.just like Walt Disney himself said, "If you can dream it you can do it!".

She wrote a post on her blog, "Sparkles and Stretchmarks", blasting Disneyland's decision to refuse Noah's "Princess for a Day" reservation, but refrained from telling Noah what happened until his two brothers gave it away.


INSIDER has contacted Disney for further information.

Please do explain to me what bad awful fate may befall him if you indulge him in his desire to have his hair done, put on an Elsa dress and wear a bit of blusher for a photo?

"I just think that it's unfair, I mean if there was an activity such as a pirate dress-up or a Spider-Man event, little girls would be allowed to do it".

McLean-Glass told ITV News Noah went from "buzzing with excitement" at the opportunity to incredibly disappointed he couldn't participate. "A girl can be whatever she wants", the mother of Noah wrote.

Disneyland Paris has apologized to his family and issued a statement The theme park told ITV News that it was an isolated incident, and the response of their single employee does not reflect the policy or the views held in the theme park.

'Diversity is near and dear to our hearts and we want to make sure that all our guests enjoy their experience at our re-sort.

She continued: 'When I was scrolling through a Disney Facebook group one day, I came across some attractive photos of little girls dressed up as Princesses in your Princess For A Day shoots at the Disneyland Hotel.
