Summary

Bibbidi, bobbidi, boo! We are so excited that the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is back at Disneyland Park. Princesses and knights ages 3 to 12 can enjoy magical transformations again with the help of the Fairy Godmother’s Apprentices. Reservations are open now. We're hopping over on the first day and we'll report back shortly with all of the latest details. In the meantime, check out our previous experiences below.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disneyland

The Royal Treatment at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disneyland

Hear ye! Hear ye! Ladies and gentlemen. Calling all aspiring princesses and knights to Fantasyland! If you are looking for that magical Disney experience that allows your tadpoles to jump into the story to save the day or to become the beauty of the ball, then hop into the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disneyland for a royal makeover.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is a salon in Fantasyland that gives magical makeovers to children ages 3 to 12. Boys can choose from knight packages, while girls can choose from a variety of princess packages that give them all the doting attention and pampering you know they deserve. But Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is happy to give any child the treatment they want, no matter their gender. The packages range in price and what comes with them, but no matter which package you choose, your tadpole is sure to feel toadally special.

Our toddler, Lily, is all about princesses these days. She longs to be part of their world. She cannot wait until she is old enough to undergo her transformation as a princess at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. We hopped along to watch our friend Sienna have the Bobbidi Bobbidi Boutique experience, and Lily now has glittering stars in her eyes as she dreams of when it will be her turn to sit in that seat and spin around for the royal reveal in the magical mirror. I will probably have her wait until she is between the ages of 4 and 8, so she is able to sit still, have the patience to pose for pictures and be old enough to remember the experience. I know our 7-year-old Frog Family friend will treasure this day forever!

How to Make Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Reservations

Making a reservation is as easy as waving a wand and saying “Bibbidi, bobbidi, boo!” You can make a reservation up to 60 days in advance through the Disneyland app or on the Disneyland site. The boutique accepts walk-ins if there’s availability. We do expect demand to be high for a few months as so many kids have been waiting to be transformed during the closure.

You’ll need a credit card to make a reservation, but you will not be charged until you check in. There is a $10 no-show fee. Be sure to cancel 24 hours in advance if you change your plans. Appointment times range from park opening until the last appointment of the day at 6 p.m. The boutique is open later than the salon for those last-minute needs. We hear some princesses tend to lose their shoes late at night! (Cough, cough! Cinderella!)

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Disneyland Packages and Prices

Getting a Royal Makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Disneyland - Mid-Priced Dresses

Your aspiring princesses or knights will have their own Fairy Godmother's Apprentice to style and create their new look. When you check in, your tadpole will choose the hairstyle, accessories and colors they would like. Boys can go for a gallant look or rock a mohawk!

Then, you will pay for your package. Check-in for us was at The Enchanted Chamber Store. That’s where you can see all of the dresses, in case you need to get a dress or if one comes with your package. They do range in price: You’ll see $60 gowns, deluxe $100 gowns and Princess Signature Dress Collection gowns for $300! You’ll be able to select one that goes with your package (if included) or purchase it separately. Our princess arrived in her own Rapunzel dress, so she did not need to choose a dress. That’s a wise money-saving tip if you own your own dress or can find it elsewhere at a discount. We have even more money-saving tips to share later!

The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Experience

Getting a Royal Makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Disneyland - Salon

The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique experience is something truly unique and magical. It definitely makes for hoppy memories. Your tadpole will be doted on and made to feel like a brave knight or a princess.

When you arrive (preferably five minutes early, with freshly-brushed hair and clean nails), you may check in at The Enchanted Chamber at the base of the castle just across from the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Make sure your child has been free of any scalp or skin conditions within the past 30 days. You’ll pick your hairstyle and accessories. Options may include a colored braid, bun, bow, flower, colored ponytail or a tiara. This is where you can choose your gown if it’s included, or purchase one if you need one. You’ll meet your Fairy Godmother's Apprentice, who will take you to the salon and seat you.

They will put a cape around you to protect your clothes, give you a face shield and spray water on your hair. As one does your hair, another Fairy Godmother's Apprentice will apply nail polish makeup and a face gem. Talk about being pampered! You’ll get to choose colors as you go and your items will be added to the swag bag to take home for future fun! The knight packages will be more simple (and budget-friendly) without makeup and nails.

Getting a Royal Makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Disneyland - Reveal

Once you are done, you are ready for your Fairy Godmother's Apprentice to sprinkle a little magic. You’ll use the face shield while they wave their magic wand and give you a sparkling, glittery finish! You’ll remove your protective cape, put on your sash and show off your look to your family and friends. Instead of sparkle, knights are showered in dragon-scale confetti for bravery.

Now it’s time for the big reveal. The birds will pull back the curtains so you may see your reflection in the magical mirror to see the fairest of them all! You can practice all your princess poses or brave knight faces. It’s toadally fun to see the results of your magical transformation! Be aware that the mirror only can stay open for a short amount of time and then it closes. Be ready to snap those pics!

Then, you’ll hop out of the chair, accept your cinch sack of goodies (and hair and makeup care instruction sheet) and go off into Fantasyland, hoppily ever after.

Meeting Princesses at Disneyland

Getting a Royal Makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Disneyland - Meeting Cinderella

If you love princesses, you’ll no doubt want to follow the path and hop over to the nearby Fantasy Faire. That’s a special part of Fantasyland that is devoted to princesses and the telling of their stories. There, you can usually meet a princess and perhaps one of her friends under the umbrella. Inside the Royal Hall, you can meet three princesses. They are usually a surprise! They will be so excited to meet another princess. Chances are, they will be admiring your hair, nails, dress and makeup.

We hopped in the regular line, but the cast member saw the pink Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique sash and sprinkled some “pixie dust” — that’s what we call it when we get bonus magic we were not expecting — and let us skip the line! Sienna was hopping with excitement to see the rare Pocahontas in there! The next stop was Cinderella, who admired Sienna’s updo, gown and makeup. She had Sienna give a few twirls.

Then we saw Tiana, who admired Sienna's sparkly nails. We love Tiana and her fabulous full green dress. Tiana is very frog-friendly and speaks our language — ribbit, ribbit!

Getting a Royal Makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Disneyland - Rapunzel

Find out more about meeting princesses in Lily’s Royally Good Guide for Meeting Princesses at Disneyland. You can also catch a humorous and toadally silly retelling of a princess story (“Rapunzel” or “Beauty and the Beast”) at the Royal Theatre. After the show, if you linger in the theatre and make your way to the right-hand side, a princess just might come out to meet you after the show!

As Sienna was twinning with Rapunzel that day, we found out where we could meet her and Flynn Rider later. They had left their post in Fantasy Faire and were hiding out near "it's a small world!" We hopped over to Rapunzel and Flynn to say hi and chat about chameleon care.

While you are still in Fantasy Faire, you can twirl your way into Fairy Tale Treasures, where you can shop for dresses and accessories or get your tadpole’s picture taken!

Keepsake Portrait Packages at Disneyland

Getting a Royal Makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Disneyland - Portrait Session

After meeting princesses, Sienna’s next stop was Fairy Tale Treasures for a photo shoot. No doubt you want to take photos of this whole experience. Your princess or knight will want to show off those good looks! You can hop in for a Keepsake Portrait Packages. These are truly special photo shoots that will help you capture the whole experience. Some Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique packages come with photos, but you can also purchase photos separately on your own if there is walk-in availability. If you choose a package that includes photos, make your Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique appointment before 4 p.m. The shop closes at 6 p.m.

The photographers do a toadally awesome job of posing your tadpole and providing just the right props. The photographer provided our little Rapunzel with a lantern and her chameleon pal, Pascal! You'll take pictures in a garden scene, with Cinderella's carriage (when we met Cinderella, she asked us if it still smelled like pumpkin!) and with the carriage horse!

Getting a Royal Makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Disneyland - Lantern

You do not need a high-end Bobbidi Bobbidi Boutique package to get your photos taken. In fact, this is a great way to save money, and we frogs are always looking for ways to save some green! For a walk-up fee of $34.95 (Magic Key discount available and this price was pre-pandemic), you can get many different poses. If you have many tadpoles in the same pictures, you pay one fee. If you want individual shots of each tadpole, you’ll pay the price per tadpole. FYI: if you want photos without even doing Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, you can always walk up. The price is $5 extra if you have not done Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique that day.

The Keepsake Portrait Package includes prints of three poses and digital downloads of all of the images taken. You'll get one pose in a 6x8 print and four 4x6 prints (two of each pose) in a folder. You can also scan the provided PhotoPass code into the Disneyland app to receive all of the digital images.

While we waited for the photos, more pixie dust was sprinkled as we were given a second opportunity to skip the line to meet princesses at the Royal Hall. This time Sienna got along just swimmingly with Ariel. When we emerged from meeting princesses, our photos were ready and what luck! More pixie dust — the photographers loved Sienna’s modeling shoot so much that they threw in a bonus pose. Talk about a magical day! You cannot expect these things, but you’ll be tickled by the Disney magic if it hoppens to you.

How to Save Money When Doing Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

Even though this is a pricey experience at Disneyland, there are ways to make it fit your budget. You'll find a big range in prices for the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique packages. Don’t worry: You can have just as magical an experience without breaking the bank! Our princess got the least expensive princess package. She arrived in her own Rapunzel princess dress and used a Magic Key discount for more savings. You can find used princess dresses at resale shops, garage sales and even online. Look for Disney Store sales! Sienna’s mom opted for the photo shoot without having to get a more expensive Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique package that comes with photos.

By getting The Carriage Package, wearing her own dress and doing the walk-in Keepsake Photo Package, she saved about $60 compared to The Castle Package, $95 compared to The Deluxe Castle Package and $315 compared to The Princess Signature Dress Collection! That’s a lot of churro money left over!

If you do not wish to spend money on a photo shoot or portrait package, you can always use your own camera to take pictures in the park. Take advantage of the PhotoPass photographers around the parks to get professional photos in iconic spots, such as in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle or by the Sword in the Stone in Fantasyland. The wishing well makes for another great photo location for princesses. In fact, that's another good place to meet more princesses!

If you purchase Disney Genie+ that day, you’ll have unlimited downloads of PhotoPass photos and other toadally cool benefits for $20 per ticket, per day. Since one photo download is $14.95, it really pays to get all of the pics with Genie+. If you only want Genie+ for the photo downloads, only one person in the party needs to purchase it. Be sure to purchase Genie+ on your smartphone that same day, because if you decide the next day that you'd love to have those photos after all, you'll be paying full price!

Since you will need a Disneyland admission ticket to enter the park and attend the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, you'll want to get the best deal possible on Disneyland tickets. You'll save the most money per day on multi-day tickets. In case you missed it, Undercover Tourist has hopped into selling discount Disneyland Resort park tickets (some with Genie+ preloaded!) and discounted Disneyland Resort hotel bookings!

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Disneyland Tips

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Disneyland - Princess and Belle

Here are some tips to help you prepare and make the most of your experience:

  • Make a reservation.
  • Plan the experience for the first half of the day so you have time to meet princesses, take pictures in the light and show off your new look.
  • Perhaps hit Splash Mountain or Grizzly River Run before your appointment so you do not ruin your look.
  • Eat and go potty before checking in.
  • Bring your own princess dress — if it is comfortable.
  • Taller girls should bring their own dress because larger sizes in the park could be limited.
  • Consider having a pair of shoes for photos and a comfortable pair for walking around the park.
  • Ask about the photo packages.
  • Arrive five minutes early.
  • Allow about 30 to 60 minutes (depending on the package) and budget an hour for meeting princesses afterward.
  • There are benches for family members, but you might send some of the other family members off to have their own fun during makeover time.
  • Arrive with recently-brushed hair and nails without polish.
  • Bring a shawl or sweater for cool evenings.
  • Bring an overnight sleeping cap or shower cap if you are trying to preserve the hairstyle for the next day.
  • Have an autograph book and pen ready for meet and greets.
  • Fairy Godmother's Apprentices may accept cash tips.

The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disneyland certainly made Sienna’s day extra magical. Cast members and other guests complimented her and made her feel truly special. The princesses doted on her and made her feel like she had found her people! We all felt that Disney magic simply being part of the experience and sharing the experience with that little princess.

Do you have any idea when they release the appointment times? I have been watching like a hawk for our dates and even though the week has been extended out for reservations there are no appointments for any of the new days available.

Hi TJ!

We've been keeping a close eye too! For a while, we weren't seeing anything, but a batch of dates opened this morning. We weren't seeing any times in October for several days in a row, but a bunch got released and there's still some limited availability, as of writing this. Our best advice is to keep checking if you can't find any for the dates you're looking for. The best time to check is usually between 6 to 7 a.m.

Hoppy planning!

My daughter is 13. She was signed up to do Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in September 2020. Covid happened, so we rescheduled it to September 2021.. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique was closed. They are fixing to open back up. I would like her to do Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at least once in her lifetime.
