Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

Today, we are going to go into our thoughts about our visit to Walt Disney’s Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.  Is Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Really Worth It? One thing to note is that our review is going to be based on the Disney Springs location.  When we took our daughter, we took her to the Disney Springs location (located within the Once Upon a Toy store in Disney Springs Marketplace) as we were unable to secure a reservation at the location within Cinderella Castle (across from the entrance to Cinderella’s Royal Table).  Here are our thoughts along with a few tips and tricks to make your experience a little more magical.

What is Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, and is Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Really Worth It?

The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is a salon with two locations within Disney World.  You must make reservations, and we recommend making them 180 days in advance.  When we booked, we were much closer, but this took multiple phone calls until a spot actually opened up. At the salon, your child will get the option to be made into a beautiful princess (or a gallant knight).  The Fairy God-Mothers in Training will take your child and let them choose the hairstyle of their choice.  There are packages that include make-up, nail polish, and full costume as well (we will go into options shortly).  The most important thing to remember, the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is not just for little girls! If you are looking for an experience for your son to go through a magical transformation with the Fairy God-Mothers in Training, you can also go for the Gallant Knight package.

What happens when we arrive?

When you arrive at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, you will check in and choose which package you will be doing for your little one.  Here is a breakdown of the pricing and what is included once you arrive for your appointment.  When you book, you do not need to make a selection, but it is good to have an idea of which package you want before you arrive so that you will have an idea of what you will be spending. As you will notice (for the girls), every package includes the hairstyle, shimmering make-up and face gem, princess sash and cinch sack, and nail polish.  Hairstyle options are the Fairytale Princess (this is the option we chose), the Disney Diva, and Color Star.

As you can see, there is a package for every budget.  What you choose is up to you, but I will go into a little more detail on our selection.

What Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique package did we choose?

Well, I will be honest and say that I really did not know what to expect.  Before we flew out, we purchased an amazing Cinderella dress on Amazon, and so we brought it with us to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.  Because we already had a beautiful Cinderella Dress, we decided to go with the Crown Package.  I am sure that each of the more expensive packages would have been great, but our daughter was so happy with her makeover, I know that if we go again, we will do the same again.  After the makeover, we went to the Magic Kingdom.  Every cast member treated her like a princess (they do all of the time, but after being made up, it was definitely exaggerated).  The smile on her face could not have been any bigger, and I was very happy with the outcome.

Is the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique really worth it?

In my opinion, YES!  I will admit that I was really doubtful going in, so I am not sure if that is why I was so pleasantly surprised, but I can guarantee you that we will do it again in the future (not only for our oldest daughter, but we will also let our youngest have the experience as well).  In the future, we will purchase a dress before going, and we will most likely go with the Crown Package as it was more than enough to make my daughter’s experience as magical as we could have ever imagined.  The only thing that I would do differently is probably do everything that I can to make it to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique located within Cinderella Castle.  What could be more magical than that?
