If anyone should be told to "Let It Go," it's Disneyland Paris after an outraged mom called them out for their unfair treatment of her 3-year-old son.

Disneyland Paris has apologized to mom of 3-year-old Noah after they refused to let him participate in the Princess for a Day experience because of his gender.

Hayley McLean-Glass wrote an open letter to the theme park outraged that her son would not be allowed to participate in the princess-themed makeover and photo shoot at the Disneyland Hotel.

“If there’s such a thing as a "Frozen" super fan, Noah is it,” McLean-Glass wrote in the letter, which she posted to her blog. “We have spent a small fortune in Disney items for him, he wears his beloved Elsa dress all day every day ... he even refuses to take it off at bedtime. He knows every single word to "Let It Go" and all of the other "Frozen" songs, he’d be able to stand on your stage in the "Frozen" show and give your Elsa a run for her money, I’m sure!”

McLean-Glass decided that the Princess for a Day experience would be the ideal Christmas gift for Noah, because he would love nothing more “than to get to wear a pretty dress, put make up on like Mummy does and have his photo taken being one of his beloved Disney princesses.”

The mom received the rejection from Disneyland hotel staff when she went to sign Noah up for the activity.

“At this time,” a staff member wrote in an email included in McLean-Glass’s blog, “it is not possible to book ‘Princess For A Day’ for a boy.”

But she didn't take this rejection lightly. What she said to the theme park had them rethinking their rules.
