The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is an amazing beauty salon for girls that transforms them into princesses with the help of a Fairy Godmother – in- training. There are now 2 location for the boutique. The original one is in the World of Disney Store in Downtown Disney. This location does not require park admission. The newest location is in Cinderella’s Castle in the Magic Kingdom (this does require admission to the park).
The salon is for children 3 years old and above. Each girl can choose from 3 hair styles including Fairytale Princess, Disney Diva, and Pop Princess. The Fairytale Princess is perfect for younger girls and is simple and adorable. It has an innocence and is very appropriate for any child that wants a more muted look. The Disney Diva and Pop Princess looks are both more tween looking, more colorful, and more dramatic.
The three packages available are:
Coach Package – includes hairstyling and shimmering makeup – $49.95
Crown Package – includes hairstyling, shimmering makeup, and nails – $54.95
Castle Package – includes hairstyling, shimmering makeup, nails, imaging package and complete costume of your choice – starting at $189.95.
Imaging Package includes one 6×8 and four 4×6 photos in a princess photo holder. This can be added to the other packages for an additional cost.
If you are going to a princess meal but don’t want to go all out at the boutique you can do my version. I prepare ahead by bringing glitter spray, bobby pins, and a princess dress from home (I usually by them after Halloween when they are very cheap) . I took my daughter to the World of Disney store where the boutique is located and purchased a tiara of her choice (under $10). Then we went back to our resort where I put her hair up in a bun, did her make up, sprayed her with glitter, and put on her princess dress and gloves. We were all set to go and she had a great time at the princess dinner at the Grand Floridian with all the girls that went to the boutique. This can be a great solution for a younger girl or if you have several daughters and can’t take all of them to the boutique.
I am not knocking the boutique and I would LOVE to take my daughter there on an upcoming trip. This time she was only 4 1/2 and I wasn’t sure I was ready for her to go the boutique (or at least her daddy wasn’t). It does cost some money and I wanted it to be an experience she would be sure to remember. Besides, I felt she was a little young since I am a little on the conservative side with her. I have friends that have taken their girls and had a wonderful time.
