    Please, this is really about her wearing a wedding dress that wasn't from Disney's princess wedding dress line!

    I think I am more stunned that the woman in that picture is 36 (or 35 - the article says both). When I first saw the pic without reading the article, I thought she was the girl's grandmother.

    Ah, the bitter angry girls of jezebel.com....As a Disney shareholder, I say more power to the Disney wedding line, plus if the average rate for a gown from it is $1100 it's WAY more sensible than some of the couture prices! Talk about pressure to buy into the fairy tale--a $10k dress isn't any better than the Disney Princess line just because it has a designer tag on it. (And really, is there any difference between playing dress-up princess and actually following fashion trends obsessively? Besides one not requiring you to update your wardrobe every six months because emaciated hags at Vogue say so?)

    And I agree with most posters, it's a sensible rule. When you have that many kids running around you need to know who's really an employee. Plus, Disney has VERY harsh rules for employee conduct, especialy for the costumed characters. They don't want anyone running around that might be presumed to work for them who could do something embarassing or dangerous.

    I don't think that wanting to look like a princess on your big day translates into not understanding what marriage is about. I've seen some of the dresses.. they're quite pretty and $1100 isn't bad for a wedding dress. I've seen dresses for 10 times as much on Say Yes to the Dress haha.

    Hey Ziggy - here is a clip just for you. It was on a TV show here many years ago where some young film makers Raced Around the World making short documentaries. One of them visited Disneyland.

    If I ever go to Disneyland, I am totally coming in drag in a frilly pink dress and I'm suing for discrimination if they don't allow me in.

    No I am an ice dancer. That gives me more Queen status rather than princess.

    Disney has been the subject of some lawsuits that have contained allegations that kids were traumatized by seeing Disney characters without their costume heads. I can see how they might be concerned about what might happen to kids who encounter an adult in what looks like a possible costume in the park. Or adults. Ziggy in a frilly party dress would probably give me nightmares for weeks!

    Ziggy's party dress would consist mainly of bondage gear with a dog collar and strategically placed tulle (al la La Khok).

    LOL
    With all the children dressed like Winnie the pooh or Tigger...

    Anyway, according to the picture, I don't think she and her daughter look like princesses !
