Disney Hires Man In Dress As Greeter for Little Girl’s Boutique
Disney’s Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique greeter has always been a “fairy godmother.” However, in a more “gender-inclusive” world, Disneyland has hired a man in a dress to do the job.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is a lovely store in Disney’s Magic Kingdom that sells princess dresses and offers updos for little girls who are “royalty training.”
Boutique Cast Members were formerly called “Fairy Godmothers in Training” but will now be called “Fairy Godmother’s Apprentices,” according to an update on Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort’s websites. This change is more gender inclusive and will allow Cast Members who don’t identify as female to participate in magical Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique makeovers.
A few years ago, I can attest that Disney wasn’t so “inclusive.” I married at Disney, and I still love Disney Princesses. I mentioned to a friend that I wanted a princess makeover. My friend said they do that. Go to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Cinderella’s castle. For those who don’t know where this catchy Bibbidi name is from, it’s from a song that Cinderella’s fairy godmother sang. The fairy godmother was a sweet old lady, now what the woke call a cisgender female, who waved her magic wand and made Cinderella ready for prime time with gorgeous hair and makeup, a fancy dress, a coach to take her to the ball, and some bad-ass glass slippers to boot. Sign me up. I was in for this makeover.
I go to the boutique with my husband and adult son. They waited outside because there was no way on earth that they were going into the puffed-up princess girl store. I’m psyched up to have my blonde tresses teased to high heaven. I go in, and everyone stops and stares at me. It turns out that the boutique does makeovers for three to twelve girls, and that’s it. I look around, and there are all these completely adorable little girls and then twenty-something-year-old me (go with it). Bibbidi Bobbidi bust.
A MAN dressed as a princess at Disney Land … this is where girls turn into princesses…This is just a NO! These are little girls who see princes and princesses. This objectively is wrong. pic.twitter.com/nzxo8LGTWY

An adult woman without a kid didn’t go over well. I was shooed out of that place lickety-split. But, in keeping with the Disney practice of no character ever getting out of their role, the main fairy godmother came outside to talk to me. I explained that I just wanted to be a princess. She said, “But you already are, my dear. Would you like me to pixie dust you?” I had no idea what that meant, but I knew it had to be magical and said yes. Godmother said, “Close your eyes, make a wish, and all your dreams will come true.” Then she shook her magic wand, and a million glitter sparkles emerged. It was amazing. Six months later, I was still picking sparkles from my hair but what a memory.

So to recap. A few years ago, an adult woman without a little girl with her was not welcome in the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, but just like that, Disney is now letting men in dresses greet the little girls. We all know where this is going. Before you know it, little girls will not be the only ones getting makeup done in that boutique. Bibbidi Bobbidi no thank you, Disney.
