Disney is under fire for refusing to allow a 3-year-old boy to partake in the "Princess for a Day" experience at one of its parks.
Parenting blogger Hayley McLean-Glass tried to schedule a "Princess for a Day" experience for her "Frozen"-obsessed son, Noah, to surprise him on their upcoming trip to Disneyland Paris.
Shockingly, the mother was told by the company that it was "not possible to book princess for a day for a boy" at this time.
The mother reminded Disney that inclusivity was always part of its original mission.
"Walt Disney himself said 'If you can dream it you can do it,'" McLean-Glass noted. "Apparently this doesn't apply to little boys who dare to want to be Princesses at Disneyland Paris."
"These are children enjoying dress up....that's all," she concluded. "What on earth can be wrong with that?!"
Her followers immediately expressed outrage over Disney's decision to exclude her son.
Disney has since apologized to McLean-Glass and her son, promising its policies have been updated to promote inclusivity.
“An isolated incident, the cast member’s response is not reflective of any policy or belief held here at Disneyland Paris,” a spokesperson told ITV in a statement, adding that its “Princess for the Day” package is available to all children ages 3-to-12.
“Diversity is near and dear to our hearts and we want to make sure that all our guests enjoy their experience at our resort," the company insisted. "We are going to ensure this does not happen again."
