Now, being identical twins they always garner a bit of attention (even now at nearly 17 they still dress alike and get noticed because they are so identical).....but the attention they got that morning was so magical. A Photopass guy stopped and ask them if they would pose for him....then took them up and down the street doing portraits with all different buildings behind them not just the castle.....they had a group of Asian tourists gesture that they wanted to take photos with the girls (something that ordinarily would freak me out, but I understood WHY).....there were 4 or so of them and each had to stand with the girls while another snapped several photos......the Dapper Dans came over and sang to them on bended knee.....oh heavens they felt like real live princesses. We finally made it to the photopass place for their photo-shoot and who came walking out but Mary and Bert and they ended up with probably a 10 minute totally private discussion since we were inside the building and no one noticed us!

All this to say that all that attention is exactly what they wanted and absolutely positively made their day!

I do agree with the other posters though that some caution needs to be taken to be sure that you don't frighten a shy little one.....and the idea to ask mom/dad first might be wise......most times though a minute or two of observing can tell you if a young princess is shy or outgoing. Sounds like OPs daughter is aware of this particular issue and should be able to make the right choice.

Spreading pixie dust is one of my favorite things.....I'm not sure parents would feel comfortable with this middle-aged Pooh sized woman going up to their kid, but I just may suggest it to my now nearly 17 year olds.....to pay back some of the love they received!
I'm not knocking your post at all but there's a big difference here in that all that attention came from cast members where there's an inherent trust that they're on the clock and there's set consequences to their actions. If you felt uncomfortable with what was going on and said as much, they would have known to stop based on their training. I'd hope OP's daughter would do the same, or anyone else trying to spread pixie dust but they might not. They might see it as a challenge to show how they were only trying to do good. If something bad happened there was recourse for you to follow. If a regular guest crossed a line, itd just be harder to deal with.
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade...but without water and sugar your lemonade is gonna suck.Shut up Brain or I'll poke you with a Qtip!Legally, it's questionable. Morally, disgusting. Personally, I like it!The way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Stab in and thrust upward.
