Fans defend the appearance of Nick the Fairy Godmother at Disneyland

Disney fans are coming to the defence of a male employee at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in Disneyland.

People are defending the appearance of 'Nick the Fairy Godmother' at Disneyland.

Disney fans have come together to support the male employee who was seen in a viral video dressed as a 'Fairy Godmother’s Apprentice'.

Watch below:

TikTok user, Kourtni, posted a clip of their family's recent visit to the Disneyland theme park in Anaheim, California.

The video shows the male park employee, named Nick, greeting visitors on their way into the children’s boutique.

“So, my name’s Nick. I’m one of the Fairy Godmother’s apprentices. I’m here to shop you around and make all your selections for the day,” they said.

While the appearance of Nick has caused some divide in the comments, many came to the defence of the male employee and praised his 'magic'.

“We had Nick and my girls loved him. He was so awesome!” one person commented.

“Nick looks amazing. I love that CM costumes are no longer gender specific,” a second wrote.

While a third added: “Nick seems like an amazing person and one of the best at spreading magic.”

“This is actually a good thing,” said someone else.

“Representation matters and children should be able to know that this is OK!”

Another commented: “He was the sweetest. My daughter was worried about getting her nails done and he was so good and patient with her.”

UNILAD has contacted Disney for comment.

Disney's Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is designed for young children to come and dress up as a Disney princess with a wide range of costumes and hairstyles to choose from. Prices can range from $250 to $450.

Just last year, members working at the boutique were previously called 'Fairy Godmothers in Training'.

However, their title was changed to 'Fairy Godmother’s Apprentices' last year, to be more inclusive.

At the time, Disney said: "This way, cast members that might not identify as female can still be part of the process to dress up & style the children without having to refer to themselves as a female Disney character."

Back in 2021, Josh D'Amaro, Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, said he wanted everyone who came to work at Disney to be 'welcome'.

He said: "The world is changing, and we will change with it, and continue to be a source of joy and inspiration for all the world. We’ll never stop working to make sure that Disney is a welcoming place for all. I’m excited about where we’re headed, and we’ll have more to share soon. Thank you for joining us on this journey."
