This can be an exciting part of the vacation. But is it worth the money? These Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique reviews and tips can help you to make a decision on whether or not to make this purchase and which package to choose!
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Overview
Princess hopefuls choose a hairstyle then add makeup and nail polish. Packages can include Disney Princess costumes (or you can bring your own). A commemorative photo is part of some packages and is enclosed in a princess-themed photo holder.
The Boutique is not just for girls!! Fairy Godmothers can also transform boys into knights with shield and sword included!!
In Disney World, the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique has 2 convenient locations: inside Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom and at the World of Disney Store at the Downtown Disney Marketplace. While walk-ins might be accepted we highly recommend making a reservation as slots fill up fast, especially at the Cinderella Castle. Reserve your spot at the same time you make dining reservations if you want to get the best time slots!

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Tips
We have a couple tips that can help you to maximize the benefits of the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.
First, make sure you book your package far in advance. Due to the convenience, the Boutique that is in Cinderella’s castle is far more popular than the one in Downtown Disney. Try and matchup your Boutique day with a day in the Magic Kingdom. But you’ll need to call well in advance to make this happen. Follow the same guidelines that you will use for booking restaurants. Early is better. Remember, you can book 180 days in advance. Be on the phone on day one for best results!
Second, bring your own dress! Now, if money isn’t an option, I will freely admit that your daughter will LOVE picking out their own outfit at Cinderella’s castle. It is a thrilling experience. But if you are trying to save money, bring a gown beforehand. Amazon has some amazing gowns that we highly recommend.
For about 20 bucks, you can get a dress of any of the princesses and save a tremendous amount of money. You could even have Amazon ship it to your hotel room if you want to keep the experience “magical”.
Finally, be smart about what you are going to do after your kids have gotten their makeovers. We like to book princess dining experiences and events in which you can get pictures taken. Eating at either Cinderella’s Castle or Akerhaus in Epcot would make the most sense.
The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is the type of add-on that can really make lasting memories for your children. Yes, it can cost a lot of money, but if you bring your own outfit, the price isn’t too bad. The experience, however, is unforgettable.
