Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique by Colleen Jobe

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

On our most recent trip to Walt Disney World, my daughters got to experience a wonderful treat! They both had the opportunity to be made into princesses at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. We chose our Spring Break trip for the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique experience because the weather was cooler than our usual summer trip.

The process of going to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique started well before our actual trip to Disney World. The first step was calling to book our appointments. I knew I wanted to get 8:00 appointements at Magic Kingdom, so my daughters could be dressed up all day. I called about 120 days before our trip to schedule the appointments and I had no trouble getting the time and day that I had in mind. Next, we had to decide what the girls were going to wear that day. When I talked to the girls, they both wanted to wear a princess dress. To my surprise, both girls said they wanted to be Ariel. This surprised me because my older daughter's favorite princess is Cinderella. She also does not like to be just like her little sister. In the end, I discovered she wanted to be Ariel because they both have red hair, and she wanted to "really" look like the princess she was dressing up like. I looked at the different packages offered at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, and there is one that includes a princess dress. I originally selected this option for my girls. After doing some research, I decided it would be better for us to purchase princess dresses from the Disney Store and bring them along. So, we went with the Crown package which includes hair, nails, and make-up.

When the morning of our appointments came along, it was very exciting. It was our 3rd day at Walt Disney World and our 2nd day at Magic Kingdom for that trip. We woke up early, and I washed and blow dred the girl's hair. They put on their Ariel dresses and already looked beautiful. It was a bit chilly, so they put their jackets on over their dresses. When we arrived at the park, we got to go straight into Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.

As soon as we entered Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, we were warmly greeted by a Fairy Godmother in Training. They took our daughters' names and showed us our way to their Fairy Godmothers. They had the girls seated beside each other so we could watch both girls easily. After the girls sat on their throne, all decisions were theirs. The first choice they had to make was their hair style. A pamphlet with pictures of their choices was given to each child. Both of my girls chose the "Fairytale Princess" hairstyle which is a bun at the top of their head. Their choice was crown selection. My older daughter chose a crown with pink gems, and my younger daughter chose crystal gems. This is when everything really got started!

Next, they put a ponytail at the very top of their head.

Then, they added the crown.

Finally, they topped the look with a beautiful bun, and they were ready for makeup! A choice of pink or light blue nail polish was given. My older daughter chose pink, and my younger daughter chose light blue.

The girls got to choose which eye color and lipstick they wore.

Finally, the look was topped with a sash, and it was time for the big reveal! I have never seen her happier...and she is always happy!

As we got ready to check out, I was surprised to find out each girl received a backpack. Inside of that backpack was the makeup and nail polish used to give them their look.

During their entire process, the Fairy Godmothers in Training were talking and interacting with the girls. It was clear they were enjoying the experience along with my girls.

Our experience didn't end there! For the remainder of the day, my girls were addressed as "Princess" and treated like royalty. When we got back to the hotel that night, the girls enjoyed playing with their makeup.

The next day, their hair style was still in place, so they were princess for another day. I watched really closely while they were fixing their hair during this process, and have used the crown and Mickey clip to recreate the hairstyle for other occasions.

I asked my older daughter who is in Kindergarten to write about her experience at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Here is what she had to say:

I felt like a princess at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and I was Ariel. I had glitter in my hair, and I looked beautiful at the end. It was fun. I hope you go someday because you might like it. The end.

I recommend Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for anyone considering it. It is a very special experience for little girls. My daughters truly felt like royalty!
