WDW - Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Review

I have to say that Maddie and I really enjoyed this part of our stay. Okay maybe me a little more than her! I was just so excited for her to get her first "makeover" into a princess.

Like many of the parents there I made my reservation at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at the Magic Kingdom 180 days in advance. The date chosen also coincided with our Lunch at Cinderella's Royal Table. In my opinion it was more important to get the lunch reservation and try and get a spot at the boutique before we had lunch. If I couldn't get a spot, my back up would be to visit the newer location at Disney Springs, but luckily it all worked out.

When I made my reservation they let me know to leave at least a two hour window in between plans. I thought they were kidding around, but really you do need that much time. You don't want to be running late. As with many things at Disney World, you hold your reservation with a credit card. Be sure that if you are going to cancel you do it 24 hours in advance, otherwise you do get hit with a small cancellation fee.

I planned ahead and made sure to bring dresses from home. I wasn't ready to shell out over $100 to get a dress there, although of course beautiful dresses they are, I just didn't see a need at this time. And my daughter was none the wiser. All she cared about was that she was going to get to wear a dress. They had dressing rooms for her to change in as well. That was a nice, so we didn't have to arrive in a dress on a very hot humid day. Surprisingly there are hundreds of little girls who don't seem to notice this heat and humidity and proudly wear their favorite princess outfits.

We waited in the crowded waiting area until Maddie's name was called, then her fairy godmother took her to her seat. The rest was magic!

She was so good sitting in the chair making conversion and telling her fairy godmother who her favorite princess was, that day it was Snow White, which was news to me! Note to self, buy Snow White dress next.

We opted for the lowest package, this included hair do, nail polish, make up, sash, and a bag. In the end I was so happy to leave with about $70 less in my wallet, but a very happy girl. She still talks about it and I can't do her hair without her wanting me to wave a wand and say "Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo". I'm must glad I don't have to put glitter in her hair everyday. In the end I would tell any mom that if you have a little girl that likes to dress up and play pretend to do this at least once. PS, having the photo pass package really was helpful for me since I had my one year old with me at the time and all she wanted to do was breastfeed. So yes, cameraperson worth every penny too. More memories to come!
