Disneyland has hired a grown man wearing a dress to greet young girls at the resort’s Bibbidy Bobbidi Boutique.
In a video posted on Twitter by Jason Jones, the grown man wearing a moustache and a dress is seen greeting little girls as they walk into the dress boutique in Disneyland.
Disneyland Resort states the “Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique offers magical makeovers for royalty-in-training ages 3 to 12.”
The video quickly grabbed the attention of Twitter users; here is their reaction:
Disney famously publicized their decision to allow men to wear dresses at the resort at the end of the pandemic.
As Inside Magic reports:
“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.“
The news comes just days after Universal Studios Hollywood announced they would host an after-hours “Pride” celebration featuring drag shows for both adults and children.
The event will take place on June 8 during Pride month, featuring photo ops with beloved children’s characters and drag shows at Universal Studios.
