The original video, which has racked up more than 7.1 million views as of Tuesday, was posted by self-described dental hygienist and mom of three Kourtni Faber’s account over the weekend. In it, a man with a mustache wearing a gown waves enthusiastically to a child and introduces himself as Nick as the customer enters the store.
This is reportedly happening at Disneyland.
Grooming Exhibitionism or Trans Rights?

“I’m here to shop you around and make all your selections for the day,” the employee says. The video pans around the store full of princess costumes on mannequins and states that price captions ranging from “$250” to “$450.”
The video goes on to show a female store employee in the same uniform helping a young girl get a princess makeover. The original poster included the caption, “A dream is a wish your heart makes, when you’re fast asleep #disneyland #bibbidibobbidiboutique #corememory.”
Many commenters on TikTok professed that they “love” Nick and said he’s been working at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for a while.
“This is insane,” one Twitter user wrote.
“Absolutely grooming. That is a moment for little girls. Mustache has no business there,” another account agreed.
“Disney is just an LGBT activist organization at this point,” another commenter wrote. “Any sane company would have backed down by now. Disney keeps doubling down because it would rather engage in political activism than return value.”
Another viewer echoed, “This is disturbing and sick. You are vile.”
Disney Parks updated its uniform policy in 2021 to allow employees, or as they’re referred to in the park, “cast members,” to wear gendered clothing of their preference regardless of their biological sex.
“We want our guests to see their own backgrounds and traditions reflected in the stories, experiences and products they encounter in their interactions with Disney,” a Disney official said in a statement at the time. “And we want our cast members — and future cast members — to feel a sense of belonging at work.”
Other changes to the dress code included that cast members no longer had to cover their tattoos if appropriate, and men were permitted to wear nail polish.
“Inclusion is essential to our culture and leads us forward as we continue to realize our rich legacy of engaging storytelling, exceptional service, and Disney magic,” the statement continued.
“Our new approach provides greater flexibility with respect to forms of personal expression surrounding gender-inclusive hairstyles, jewelry, nail styles, and costume choices; and allowing appropriate visible tattoos. We’re updating them to not only remain relevant in today’s workplace, but also enable our cast members to better express their cultures and individuality at work.”
