Mom Writes A Devastating Post After Disney Rejected Her Son’s ‘Princess For A Day’ Request

Disney has a special Princess For A Day program.

Where, you guessed it, you get treated like a princess for a day. This one mother, who runs a blog called Sparkles and Stretchmarks, a superfan of Elsa as a child. So obviously, she decided to sign up for the program. The mother then got rejected entirely.

SPARKLES AND STRETCHMARKS

Dear Mrs McLean,

Thank you for your email and your interest in Disneyland Paris. 

At this time it is not possible to book Princess for a Day for a boy.

However, we would be happy to arrange a tailored gift pack with some Princess themed items such as an autograph book, cuddly toy, playset, etc. for a total price of 300€ VAT included (minimum budget required for our service). 

The mother, obviously, wouldn’t take this down.

I can’t help but wonder if the same rule would apply should you introduce an activity at your parks that is only for boys….I say introduce because of course there isn’t anything that is just for “Boys” as this would never be allowed.

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 touched on people who thought she shouldn’t blog about it. Like the fact that boys are princes and girls are princesses.

I’m aware that there are many people in the world with outdated opinions on subjects such as this who will no doubt say that I’m creating drama or that I need to just pipe down and accept the fact that he is a boy and therefore he shouldn’t be allowed to wear a dress….well here’s the thing, usually my anxiety means I shy away from writing blog posts on controversial topics because I don’t feel that I can handle the backlash. But in this situation? BRING IT ON! Because anybody who has an issue with this, is 100% WRONG and nothing will ever change my mind on that.

She grew sassier and sassier.

I didn’t force my child to try on an Elsa dress….he chose it for himself. I have 3 sons, the other two are about as stereotypical BOY as you can get….my eldest child would recoil in horror at the mere mention of him wearing a dress, infact he doesn’t even want to go to your Princess restaurant (which we were planning to book despite the high prices, because Noah would love it….maybe I should check, is he allowed in there or would he need to leave his penis at the door?!)
