Published: October 29, 2012 at 11:22 AMObviously Disney didn't talk to educators or child psychologists. Children from second grade to younger do not handle change well. As one who has been in the education field for over ten years, I can assure you that this will not go over well. I have seen kindgergarten aged children burst into tears if one little change has happened. My own son who is in kindergarten refused a toy of a superhero because the costume did not look like the one in the movie. He claimed that this was not the real hero. The older girls will like this, but the younger ones will not believe that these are the real princesses.
Why not actually put forth this change towards attractions? Why not update the last scene in Carousel of Progress? Why not fix the Yeti? I could go on and on. There are so many other ways to spend this energy, money and time.

Why would you give modern hairstyles and clothes to the Disney Princesses since that's not what they wear in the movies? Why don't we just give Genie a backwards facing cap, an Ed Hardy Shirt, and his name tattooed across his knuckles while we're at it? Or maybe I can get a pic with Jersey Shore Belle?
Ok so that's an exaggeration. But that would be like giving Aladdin a suit and tie, or have Prince Charming ride in on a Harley.
