Reviewing 2016: Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

Happy Monday morning Traveling Through Disney family! How was everyone's weekend? I hope it was as great as ours, the only thing that could have made it better was being at Disney! 

I wanted to veer off course from reviewing our past trip this week to bring you a few reviews of our favorite restaurants and special events we participated in on our trip. 

First up for today is Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in Cinderella's Castle. There is also another one on Walt Disney World property at Disney Springs inside the Wide World of Disney store. 

For our trip though we visited Cinderella's Castle. 

I made the reservations about 120 days in advance to make sure we had a reservation. Note: Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is a reservation only salon. You have to call and setup an appointment prior to your arrival. To do that you can contact your travel agent or you can call Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique directly at: (407) 939-7895.

Upon making your reservations you will be asked to choose a package. The packages start at $59.95 per girl and are listed below.

  • Hairstyling
  • Shimmering make-up, face gem
  • Princess sash and tote
  • Nail polish
The Courtyard Package (starting at $94.95 plus tax)
  • Hairstyling
  • Shimmering make-up, face gem
  • Princess sash and tote
  • Nail polish
  • Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique T-shirt
  • Trendy tutu
The Castle Package (starting at $194.95 plus tax)
  • Hairstyling
  • Shimmering make-up, face gem
  • Princess sash and tote
  • Nail polish
  • Complete costume of your choice plus accessories (shoes not included)
Guests can also choose:
The Knight Package ($19.95 plus tax)
  • Hairstyling with gel
  • Mighty sword and shield
  • Confetti
We chose the Crown package for our little one and set the reservation on the day and time that we knew we would be in Magic Kingdom. Done and Done! I bought my daughter a Belle costume prior to arriving at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and brought it with us to cut down on spending a fortune on a dress in the shop. They are pricey! 

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is located right inside Cinderella's Castle on the left side if you come from Main Street and the right side if you come from Fantasyland. It is directly across the hall from Sir Mickey's. Upon arrival you check in at the desk with a Fairy Godmother in training and are asked to take a seat in the waiting area. Side note: If you bring a dress to change into please let the Fairy Godmother in Training know so she can add a dressing room to be ready for you. 

We sat for maybe 10 minutes or so and then our Princess was called back to get changed. Note: An adult does need to be with the child to go in the dressing room to help her. Once we were changed into our gown we went back out in the waiting area. It took about 20 minutes from the time we checked in until we were called back again to get dolled up. 

There is a small sitting area for parents to sit while their child gets transformed into a Princess or Knight. All in all it takes about 45 to 60 minutes from top to bottom for the reservation so make sure you allot enough time. 

The Fairy Godmother's in Training are all so nice and energetic. They make your child feel welcome and at ease during the whole process. The Fairy Godmother's in Training all switch out after 1 or 2 clients so they are fully refreshed and cheery. 

There is a photopass photographer that goes around to all of the children taking pictures. They give you a card once your child is finished and you can take it across the street next to Castle Couture to get some really precious photos. 

We really enjoyed our Fairy Godmother and tips are always appreciated for a job well done although you do not have to tip. 

Our package was the crown package so my daughter got: a princess sash, a hairstyle with a crown, makeup, nails painted, and pixie dust for the road! 

Here are some of the amazing photos we got on our Memory Maker from the experience. 

We cannot say enough good things about our Fairy Godmother in Training and also the photopass photographer at Castle Couture. They were both so nice and truly made my daughter's experience magical. As my lovely daughter is entering the age where she is no longer a little girl this is probably the last time we will get to do this experience. 

We loved it though and the icing on the cake was getting to have dinner at Be Our Guest all dressed up like Belle. The beast was very pleased. :)

So if you are looking for an added extra to your vacation and want your daughter or son to have the full Prince/Princess vibe then definitely book a reservation for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. It is those memories after all that you will have forever. I can honestly say that my daughter will probably always remember her experience.
