The British Natasha Narula, 35, tried to give a day of princess for her daughter, Drew, 8, but was prevented from realizing the dream of the young visiting the Disney park in Paris.
Mother and daughter bought costumes to celebrate the anniversary of Princess Natasha for three days in the French park.
Once you entered Disney, the joy lasted less than an hour. The pair was stopped by security guards, who asked that Natasha and Drew returned to the hotel and swap their clothes.
The park, which opened in 1992, features a daily Princess Parade of characters such as Cinderella, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty, while a special evening show called Fantillusion involves four princesses as the finale.
The attraction, which is separated into two theme parks called Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park , also sells prince and princess outfits for its young visitors at its numerous merchandising outlets.
Miss Narula, from Radford, Coventry, said she had called Disneyland in advance of the trip and was told it would be fine for the pair to dress as princesses.
But she was forced to change into an old pair of jeans and a shirt before she was eventually admitted to the park. Drew was allowed to keep her dress on.
