My family and I recently had an amazing magical vacation to Disney World. One thing we have wanted to do for a while is to take my daughter to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. I have heard and read great things about it from fellow Disney enthusiasts and clients who have taken their little princesses in the past. But to see it firsthand was such an exciting experience.**
(Waiting for her turn)
My daughter's Fairy Godmother-in-training, Susan, was incredible! I had tears in my eyes as she explained every magical and exciting step in the Princess-making process! And one of the best parts? It was a pain-free experience for Miss R. She sat still and quiet, amazed as her Fairy Godmother-in-training told stories of working with the real princesses. She made the whole experience enjoyable and entertaining, and it is definitely something we want to do again and would recommend anyone with girls to do!
There are three packages you can choose from for your little princess to have a makeover: The Coach Package, The Crown Package, and The Castle Package, each one building on the previous package in amount of makeover inclusions. The Coach Package is the basic package. It includes a hairstyle of her choice, shimmering makeup, and a princess sash, and it costs $35 plus tax. Within The Crown Package, $45 plus tax will get your little princess a hairstyle of her choice, painted nails, shimmering makeup, and a princess sash. The Castle Package is the delux package. It includes, a hairstyle of her choice, painted nails, simmering makeup, an imaging package (with a 6x8 photo, and four 4x6 photos, and a themed holder), a princess gown of choice, grown, wand, shoes, and a princess sash, starting at $180 plus tax. You can choose to bring your own princess gown if you like. That's what we did with Miss R.
Once you choose the package and you arrive at you BBB Royal Salon (either at the Magic Kingdom, in Cinderella's Castle, or at Downtown Disney, in the World of Disney store), your little princess will be allowed to change (if you bring your own dress or purchase one) and you will be given a brochure with her name on it, to look at and decide which hairstyle she would like to have. There are three hairstyles that she can choose from: Fairytale Princess, Disney Diva, and Pop Princess. With the Fairytale Princess hairstyle comes with your choice of a rhinestone tiara, a Mickey-shaped hairpin, and is finished with a pinch of fairy dust. The Disney Diva hairstyle is a style fit for a rising star! It includes a choice of faux hair to match your little princess' and a touch of Disney magic to make her sparkle. For your princess who wants to be a Pop Princess, she will love the spotlight with her choice of colorful hair accessories, Mickey-shaped clips, and a dash of Disney sparkle to complete the hairstyle.
(Preparing her curly hair for her Princess up-do!)
(She used this hair glue, and Miss R's hair never moved!)
(Painting her little finger nails..pink of course!)
(Getting her princess makeup put on)
(And a sprinkle of fairy dust..)
The most exciting part of the whole experience was the big reveal! Miss R was so surprised! We caught her reaction in the mirror!

(Pure shock! She was so happy..she couldn't stop looking at herself in the mirror and twirling!)
For the little Princes in your life, there is a "Cool Dude" makeover. The "Cool Dude" makeover for boys includes a special hairstyle with colored gels, confetti, and a "Hidden Mickey." Prices for this start at $10 plus tax.
There is also something for our tween girl crowd! It's called Disney's "Secret Star." It is a Hannah Montana-inspired package and is only done at the Downtown Disney location. Your rockstar-wannabes can get the Hannah look! It includes a blonde wig, microphone set, guitar purse, T-shirt, a makeup kit, and an in-studio photo session, and costs $109.95 plus tax. It is sure to be a crowd-pleaser with your superstar daughters!
So whether you're a young girl dreaming of being one of the Disney princesses, a tween wanting to rock out like Hannah Montana, or a young boy who wants to be a "Cool Dude," Disney's Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is the place for you to have a magical transformation and memories that will last a lifetime!
**Note, all children must be at least 3 years old for any makeover within the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.
