The Royal Treatment at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disney World

Inside This Post Inside This Post

Bibbidi, bobbidi, boo! We are so excited that the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is open at Magic Kingdom Park. Princesses and knights ages 3 to 12 can enjoy magical transformations with the help of the Fairy Godmother’s apprentices. Reservations are available for booking at the Magic Kingdom location — the Disney Springs and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa locations will reopen at a later date. We hopped over with Lily and have updated our guide with all of the magical details!

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disney World — Finished look with Fairy Godmother's Apprentice

Overview of Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disney World

Bibbidi, bobbidi, boo! With these three magical words, the Fairy Godmother transformed Cinderella from a ragged maid into a beautiful princess, complete with a carriage. As if a trip to Disney World isn't filled with enough pixie dust, your prince or princess can receive the same royal treatment as Cinderella at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. With multiple locations at Disney World, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique offers a magical makeover experience in an equally magical setting. It's one the tadpoles will treasure, and one you'll save for the scrapbooks — Lily still talks about her Bibbidi Bobbidi makeover all the time!

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disney World — Magic Kingdom location behind Cinderella Castle

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique has three locations at Walt Disney World Resort — one next to Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park, one at Disney Springs and one at Disney's Grand Floridian Hotel & Spa (note that only the Magic Kingdom location has returned thus far). For any location, you'll need to make a reservation ahead of time. The original location is, of course, next door to Cinderella Castle. As you might imagine, this location books up pretty quickly, so be sure to hop to it if your prince or princess wants to head to the castle!

You can also find a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at both Disneyland and on each of the Disney Cruise ships!

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Reservations

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disney World — Magic Kingdom location

Reservations are highly recommended for this experience and are very popular. The reservation policy for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is the same as for advance dining reservations. Guests staying at a non-Disney Resort hotel can make reservations up to 60 days in advance, while those staying at a Disney Resort hotel can make a reservation for any day of their stay (up to 10 days) starting 60 days from their arrival.

This means resort guests have an advance opportunity to reserve a time over non-resort guests. For example, on Aug. 1, the furthest date out that a non-resort guest could start making a reservation is Sept. 30 (60 days from Aug. 1). However, on Aug. 1, a resort guest arriving on Sept. 30 could make a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique reservation for Oct. 5. For resort guests, you may want to plan a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique appointment near the end of your trip (when you can reserve 60+ days in advance) instead of when you first arrive.

Reservations are now available for booking — you'll need to include a credit card while booking but the card will not be charged until your visit. If visiting the Magic Kingdom location, you'll need to make sure you have valid park admission and a park pass reservation (for non-dated tickets). You won't need to choose the specific package until your actual appointment, so you'll just be booking the reservation for now.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Packages and Pricing

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disney World — Carriage package take-home accessories

At the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, tadpoles from ages 3 to 12 can have their very own Fairy Godmother Apprentice give them a royal makeover. There are various packages to choose from and they are available to any gender, so your child can decide if they want to be a princess or a knight. You'll want to plan for about an hour to 90 minutes for this magical transformation, depending on the package and the hairstyle your mini-royal selects. Note: The following prices and packages are subject to change.

  • The Carriage Package ($99.95 + tax) includes hairstyling, shimmering makeup and face gem, princess sash and cinch sack, nail polish and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique T-shirt (pictured above).
  • The Castle Package (starting at $199.95 + tax) includes hairstyling, shimmering makeup and face gem, princess sash and cinch sack, nail polish, a Disney Princess gown of their choosing (not including shoes) and additional coordinating accessories.
  • The Deluxe Castle Package (starting at $229.95 plus tax) includes hairstyling, shimmering makeup with a face gem, princess necklace, sash, cinch sack, nail polish and Deluxe Disney Princess gown of their choice (excluding shoes) ... plus a coordinating boxed accessory set! (Subject to availability)
  • The Princess Signature Dress Package (starting at $450.00 plus tax) includes an heirloom-quality Disney Princess gown, high-quality crystal tiara, organza garment bag and satin hanger, hairstyling, shimmering makeup, princess sash and cinch bag, face gem and nail polish.
  • The Disney Encanto Package (starting at $179.95 + tax) includes hairstyling, shimmering makeup and face gem, princess sash and cinch sack, nail polish, a Mirabel or Isabela gown (not including shoes) and additional coordinating accessories.
  • The Knight Package (starting at $19.95 plus tax) includes hairstyling with gel and a sword and shield.
  • The Deluxe Knight Package (starting at $79.95 plus tax) includes hairstyling with gel, a sword and shield and a knight costume.

You'll let the cast members know which package you choose when you are brought into your appointment. While waiting in the lobby, you are provided a binder so you can look at all the package options (all the same information is also available online). You'll go from the lobby to the shop, where assorted princess dresses and accessories are available for purchase.

PhotoPass photographers will be making the rounds and taking photos of the experience, but note that photos are not included with the experience. You'll receive a PhotoPass card with all of your child's transformation photos. Once you can link to your account, you'll see the watermarked photos. You can either decide to purchase individual photos or we highly suggest purchasing Memory Maker, which allows unlimited digital downloads for your entire trip.

The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Experience

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Magic Kingdom — Shop with dresses and accessories

At Magic Kingdom, you'll find the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique behind Cinderella Castle just before Prince Charming Royal Carousel. After checking in, a Fairy Godmother Apprentice will lead you from the lobby to the shop. You'll let them know which package you are doing and if you will be purchasing any dresses, prince or knight costumes or accessories (certain dresses will be included in the price depending on the package). Dresses are typically around $59.99 while the Deluxe Signature dresses are about $99.99. Most of the pieces can be found in other shops throughout Walt Disney World, though some are exclusive to the shop, such as higher-end tiaras. You can also bring your own dress like we did with Lily.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Magic Kingdom — Fairy godmother magic mirror

Once ready, you'll head to the fitting room where the Apprentice will go over the different hairstyles, such as a bun with a tiara or a brightly colored hairpiece. You'll then get a special message from the Fairy Godmother herself! Your child will then adorn their royal attire and head back out to the shop. You'll pay for the package and your Fairy Godmother's Apprentice will walk you over to the boutique in the castle (don't worry if it is raining a little like it was for us, they have umbrellas ready for the few seconds you are outside).

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Magic Kingdom

The boutique itself has lots of royal touches and definitely feels like you're in the castle. There are a lot of stations for this popular experience, so it will be a bit tight navigating around, but once you're at your chair, there is a good amount of space. You are allowed two guests with the child and there are cushioned benches so you can sit right in front of the royal star.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Magic Kingdom — Hairstyling

Now, the makeover begins! We did the Carriage Package, so the apprentice began with gelling the hair to fit into our selected high bun (even with Lily's shoulder-length hair, she still managed to get it into the iconic princess bun!). We chose the tiara and then there is even a hidden Mickey gem placed on the back of the hair. The hairstyling takes up most of the time and then we moved on to nails. Other hairstyles include a Royal Braid with accessories, a Fantasy curly hairpiece and flower halo, or a Pixie Magic ponytail accessory and flower halo.

The apprentice then applies a sparkly gold nail polish that she got from our favorite fairy, Tinker Bell!

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Magic Kingdom - Lipstick and eyeshadow palette

Lily was able to then choose which eyeshadow color she wanted (any combination of two colors). She also chose which lip color and then a face gem. We liked that the child has the freedom to choose whatever they prefer. Finally, the official BBB sash is placed to make it all official.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Magic Kingdom – Reveal

With that, it's time for the big reveal! The whole transformation is done with the prince or princess facing away from the mirror, so there is a great moment when the Apprentice turns the chair around and lets them see the final look. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo, indeed! Before heading out, you'll get your branded bag of goodies, including the nail polish, lipstick and eyeshadow palette you used, so you can enjoy magical transformations at home as well. You'll also get a PhotoPass card with all the photos taken during the transformation (though you will need to either purchase them or utilize Memory Maker to download them).

Lily absolutely loves the experience — it's one of her favorite activities at Disney World! She loved telling the characters she met later that day that she had been to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in Cinderella Castle. We did not wash her hair that night, so she still had the princess look all of the next day (note: bring a shower cap to help maintain the hairdo).

After returning home and telling others about her visit, she would mention having her hair done and makeup applied in Cinderella Castle. She also mentions it when she sees Cinderella Castle during the opening of Disney movies.

Meeting Princesses at Magic Kingdom

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Magic Kingdom – Meeting Cinderella

After your royal makeover, you'll definitely want to go see your favorite princesses! A great benefit of the Magic Kingdom location is you're right by Princess Fairytale Hall, where you can meet Cinderella, Elena, Rapunzel and Tiana. Lily was beyond excited to meet Cinderella in her matching outfit!

Other princesses you can meet throughout the park include Ariel at Ariel's Grotto, Belle during Enchanted Tales with Belle, Jasmine in Adventureland (who also meets with Aladdin), Snow White near Town Square Theater and Merida at Liberty Square Gazebo. Be sure to check the My Disney Experience app for set times. Hop over to our royal guide to princesses at Disney World for more information!

Most of these locations have a PhotoPass photographer available and you can take photos on your phone to capture all the magical memories.

Why Choose the Bibbibi Bobbidi Boutique at Disney Springs

While the location in Cinderella’s Castle is the most popular, another option is the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique location in Disney Springs (though this location has not reopened yet). All of the styling choices, prices and experience are the same, and it has several advantages. This location generally has a little more availability when it comes to reservations.

There are pros and cons to both locations. What could be more magical than a princess makeover in a real-life castle?! However, as with all experiences, note that this does cut into your park time. If you're already planning a Disney Springs day, it's an easy stop. We've found that Lily's hair lasts at least two days, so if your princess has multiple dress-up days planned, she can put that sash back on and really extend the magic.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disney World - Disney Springs Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

Some other factors to consider are:

  • Since it is at Disney Springs, you do not need an admission ticket. If you have a planned day that does not include visiting the parks, a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique makeover that day can be a good choice because you do not lose park touring time while the makeover takes place.
  • It is in a newer location at the Once Upon a Toy store, having moved from its spot in the Disney Store a couple of years ago. This allows for more seats and space in the salon area. However, it is still not overly roomy for siblings who are not having a makeover.
  • After the princess transformation is complete and you're leaving the boutique, there is a neat photo-op with a model of Cinderella’s carriage. A PhotoPass photographer will take pictures, but you can use your own camera, as well.
  • Perhaps the biggest advantage is that in our experience, it is MUCH easier to obtain a reservation. Years ago, we had Lily's appointment on the day after Thanksgiving, which is one of the busiest days of the year. We arrived about an hour early just to check in and were surprised that she could go ahead and start her princess transformation immediately. In the salon, there were a number of open seats so someone could have easily obtained a walk-in appointment.
  • After your tadpole's makeover, you can visit the PhotoPass Service Studio located nearby in Disney Springs for a photo session. If you have Memory Maker, these photos are added to your account. There are tons of fun backgrounds to choose from, and you can even make your own fairytale storybook!

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Tips

1. Try to Get a Morning Appointment

A morning appointment allows your child to be made up for the day. This works out great if you have a meal at Cinderella's Royal Table or a meeting with Cinderella at Princess Fairytale Hall later. Plus, you can take pictures of your child with characters who may have limited visiting times. An earlier appointment really maximizes the royal look, but with how popular the experience is, it's toadally OK if you can only grab an afternoon booking.

2. Save on Princess Dresses

You can save on an official Disney version of a princess dress by checking eBay for either used dresses or new dresses that are being sold for less than the retail price of about $60 plus tax. The used dresses can be of great value because they typically have only been worn once or twice and are in great shape. I purchased a new Cinderella dress with several accessories for $45 and a group of four used dresses for only $80. Another option to save on a dress is to watch the Disney Store website for sales. I started watching a year in advance before our last visit and purchased several dresses for at least 25 percent off. There are also great third-party options available online from various shops, so there are plenty of options for your young royal.

If your tadpole is near 12 years old or tall for their age, the dress selection is more limited because many dresses are only available up to a size 10. The Disney Store website may offer larger sizes (up to size 13) that are not available at the retail store locations.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Magic Kingdom – PhotoPass Studio at Sir Mickeys

3. Visit the Disney PhotoPass Studio

Once the transformation is complete, visit the Disney PhotoPass Studio afterward for a royal photoshoot. At Magic Kingdom, the studio is located at Sir Mickey's gift shop right across from BBB. This photo studio is open to anyone, so you may have a short wait as other families get their royal portraits taken. The studio has a set backdrop and some accessories as well. At Disney Springs, the boutique location is very close to the Disney PhotoPass Studio, which has lots more options with virtual backdrops and more. You can purchase individual photos or use Memory Maker or an Annual Pass with a photo add-on to download.

4. Be Ready for Your Own Photo-Ops

While you'll receive a ton of beautiful photos of your princess, don't froget to be ready to take your own pics during the process. And think about other places that may make for special impromptu photo-ops. Some of our favorite spots are Cinderella Fountain and the Wishing Well, but Leap also caught a gorgeous shot of Lily on Dumbo with a bright smile and her princess sash waving in the wind.

5. Bring an Extra Pair of Shoes

If you have a special pair of shoes that go with the dress, you may want to bring an extra pair that is more comfortable. Lily would wear her fancy shoes when meeting a character and then change to her other shoes after the encounter.

6. Consider Splitting Up

There is limited seating in the boutique for people waiting and watching the royal makeovers and typically only two guests can accompany the child. If your child has siblings, it would be good if they could leave and do something else while the makeover is being done. Tad quickly became bored and did not want to sit in the boutique when he could be riding Space Mountain, so Leap took him while I waited and watched Lily's makeover.

7. There Are Options for All Genders

For tadpoles who aren't interested in a princess makeover, Bibbidi Bobbidi offers a Knight Package ($19.95 + tax) that includes hairstyling with gel, a sword and a shield. The Deluxe Knight Package ($79.95 + tax) adds a prince costume. Disney also will occasionally add more options, especially with the popularity of newer films like "Encanto".

Do they ask for or check your child’s DOB before taking reservations? Are they strict on the age requirements? My daughter will be a 3 months shy of turning 3yrs old when we go this summer and I know she would love to get a princess makeover. I was planning for it until I saw the age requirement.

I just called this morning to schedule for my older daughter - my youngest will be one month shy of 3. I was told absolutely not for my almost 3 year old, BUT, they can do things like sparkle dust in their hair. The lady assured me there would be some stuff they could do for our youngest. I plan to bring a dress for her and bank on some sparkle dust and I think our little lady will be fine with it.

Hi Kristin!

Unfortunately, Disney and the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique are super strict about age policies. We're not sure how they verify ages, but we know they won't allow you to book an appointment unless your child will fit within the age restraints on the date of visit. We recommend doing a princess dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table or Akershus Royal Banquet Hall instead!

I'm taking my daughter, who will have just turned 6, this September. This will be her first trip to Disney and we are planning on visiting Magic Kingdom twice - the first and last day of our trip. I'm debating on whether I should try to book for the first day when it will take a fairly big chunk of time and there will be so many rides and attractions she will be excited for, or wait until the last day when we have already spent some time in the parks and will possibly be more flexible.

Hi Sara,

It's ultimately up to you, but waiting until the last day when you might be more flexible could be a great idea! You're correct - being in Magic Kingdom for the first time is so exciting and overwhelming. It might be easier to take some time for it on your last day!

Is there a hairstyle you'd recommend in particular if we want to have it last more than the day?! (We'll be meeting up with her dad and older sisters at Epcot for the remainder of the day and visiting Magic Kingdom the next, so it would be fun to have it look decent for both!) :)

Hi Cassandra!

Awesome question. We've seen quite a few princesses rocking a tight top knot bun. We imagine this would last a full day or two. The "fairy godmothers in training" are excellent and put plenty of product (and pixie dust) in to make sure the styles last, so we wouldn't worry. Perhaps just mention your situation to them for a little extra magic!

I was considering taking my daughter to the Disney Springs boutique the day before our visit to MK, so she can be dressed up for the whole day in the park. I plan on getting memory maker. I assume we can still get photos on the memory maker at the DS boutique location? Would she still be eligible for the castle couture photo session you mentioned? Is that only available with certain packages, or with any boutique makeover? And is it just walk-in?

Hi Kelly,

Sorry for the delay, but your comment ended up in our spam filter. Disney Springs has a PhotoPass Service Studio a short walk away from Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, where your princess can take many photos with enchanting backdrops. These will be included with your Memory Maker at no extra cost, and no reservations are required. However, the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique itself is very popular, so be sure to make reservations as soon as you can, up to 180 days in advance! Have a magical time.

To clarify, if you are staying in a Disney resort and have a package with hotel and tickets, your child's age at check-in is all that matters for tickets. If you aren't staying in a Disney hotel, you have to buy tickets for a child starting the day they turn 3, no matter what.

We just left disney. I never told them my daughters age. My mom may have told them 3 but I do not know. They never asked once if she was old enough when we got there. She is 2.5 and acts every bit of it. She loved it!!

I was curious too! I made an appointment for my almost 3 yr old... she'll be 10 days shy of turning 3. Curios if they actually scan a ticket that she should have or not... I know scanned tickets will show cast members your pic you take at the gate getting in... so do they scan them at BBB when you check in for your appointment?

Hi there!

Disney is very strict on age policies. When it comes to experiences like this, we don't recommend attempting to bend the rules - it's too stressful!

Hi Tawni,

There is a direct bus from the Magic Kingdom to Disney Springs after 4 p.m. Before that, you'll need to get to a Disney hotel, then take a bus to Disney Springs. The Boutique is located in the Marketplace section of Disney Springs.

Thanks.xx

Hi Holly,

You can definitely bring your own dress and it'll make the experience just as good, in our opinion. There are several different packages available to choose from, some which include a gown. It'll definitely be cheaper if you bring your own! They can also change once they get there.

It's up to you! It truly doesn't matter either way - they will use a smock to make sure not too much glitter gets on the dress ;) We do prefer waiting until after the makeover for a more grand reveal!

Hi Sue,

I'm not sure if there would be a place to store your daughter's dress at the BBB because the area is not very large. Some options would be:

1. If the dress is comfortable enough, she could wear it all day. My daughter wore her Cinderella dress to the park that morning, which was several hours before her appointment.

2. At the Magic Kingdom, there are lockers available for rent just before passing under the train station, on the right hand side. You rent the locker for the day, so you can easily store and retrieve items from it. We did this to store extra dresses when my daughter would change from one outfit to another. We also stored snacks in it.

3. On days when we did not rent a locker, we would carefully fold her dress and carry it in a backpack. I also had extra shoes, since her clear shoes were not overly comfortable, and a few other accessories. It is not too bad carrying a backpack and it saved on the locker expense and having to go to the front of the park when she was ready to change. Hopefully one of these options will work for you.

Hi Luz,

Sorry I did not see your question earlier. Unfortunately for your girls, the age range for the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is 3 - 12. Also, the official Disney dresses are hard to find for older girls as most of the styles stop at a size 10. The last two years, some of the dresses have been offered on-line through the Disney Store in sizes 11-12 and 13.

Do you have any idea the dress sizes that BBB carry. My granddaughter is a tall and slightly plump girl and would probably need a size larger that 14-16 (I have a Disney Elsa dress 14-16 which is a tad snug. Thanks.

I would bring a dress for her. The dresses at the park run shorter usually and if 14-16 is snug I would hate for the dress to be too tight. I don't believe they have larger sizes. The other option is for her to wear a really cute princess t shirt etc and they will give her a sash. Depending on what she wants to do :)

My son was disappointed that there was not a Knights outfit to make him into a knight. You see he is blind and he loves to dress up..Oliver is a cancer patient blinded by a brain tumor in 2010...he loved the shield and sword however and i appre iate the stretchy material of the Cinderella dresses because my daughter is a little bigger than some of the dresses would fit. Overall it was ok but may i suggest some costumes? Maybe a vest type dress up for boys? Since the visit wasnt for his visual pleasure but rather for his other senses i think about asking Disney to make something for boys to wear..

UPDATE TO THIS POST

Since I wrote this original post, there has been one change of significance. The old reservation policy was that appointments could be made starting 180 days from the desired appointment date. Now, the reservation policy has been modified to match the advance dining reservation policy which allows Disney Resort guests to make reservations for any day of their stay (up to 10 days) starting 180 days from their arrival. This means resort guests have an advance opportunity to reserve a time over non-resort guests. For example, on June 4 the farthest date out that a non-resort guest could start making a reservation is December 1 (180 days from June 4). However, a resort guest arriving on November 29 could have started making a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique reservation for December 1 starting on June 2 (this is 180 days from their arrival and 182 days from the desired appointment date). The effect of this change is that it will be more difficult for non-resort guests to make a reservation. For resort guests, it means that you may want to plan a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique appointment near the end of your trip (when you can reserve 180+ days in advance) instead of when you first arrive (when you can reserve only 180 days in advance). As an example of this impact, I called at 7:30 am to make a reservation for December 4 on June 4, which is 183 days in advance. The earliest available opening was 11:20 am. The boutique opens at 8 am, so more than the first three hours of the day were already filled this far in advance, at a time when the overall crowd level at Disney World is relatively low.

For anyone wanting to schedule an appointment, it is extremely important to call and try making your appointment as soon as you are eligible. The reservation phone lines are open 7 am - midnight, so it would be a good idea to call in advance of your eligibility date just to confirm the date you can start to make a reservation and to make sure that the reservation policy is still the same. I thought the policy was still 180 days in advance for all guests because I had not seen anything that stated otherwise. I was calling to confirm the date that would be 180 days from the desired appointment date and was surprised to find out that I could go ahead and make an appointment as a resort guest.
