Becoming a Princess at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique
Every little girl comes to Disney Parks dreaming of being a princess or at least being dressed like one. Geared towards girls ages 3-12, the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disneyland Park makes that dream come true. My niece, Olivia, turned 3 recently and we took her there on her birthday to be pampered.
DIStracted tip: The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is very strict on the age limit for actual makeovers, no one under the age of 3 will be transformed but they can purchase the merchandise.
When we checked in for her makeover, we were taken to a holding area where they had all of the dresses displayed and that is where Olivia picked out the princess she would transform into. She picked a classic, Cinderella! From there, we were led by our Fairy Godmother in Training to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.
Once inside, Olivia’s Fairy Godmother in Training had her use magic to transform her dress from mice size to kid sized. She put on her gown and headed off to the makeover portion. Olivia was so good and sat still while she got her hair, nails and makeup done. Then the big reveal! This was done so cute, first she was introduced to her family as “Princess Cinderella” and then the curtains behind her opened up to reveal a mirror where she could see herself. The joy on her face was evident.
Perfectly Princess Photo Shoot
After the makeover, it was off to a mini photo shoot complete with a carriage. Disney Photo Pass photographers took some great shots of Olivia. Last but not least, we were escorted to visit the princesses at Fantasy Faire without having to wait in line. Olivia and my son, Oliver got to visit with Snow White, Ariel and of course, Cinderella. The kids loved seeing and taking pictures with them.
DIStracted tip: Disney Photo Pass photographers will take pictures at the mini photo shoot and with the princesses. If you are a Disneyland Signature or Signature Plus Annual Passholder, you will be able to download the pictures for free. You may use your own camera as well.
All of us had such a great time! I highly recommend it! There are a few levels of packages that can be purchased at different price points. We did The Castle Package which comes with the hairstyle, makeup, nails painted, Princess sash and bag, face gem, princess gown, wand and the crown. You can purchase the shoes separately. In addition, young knights can get The Knight Package which includes a hairstyle a shield and a sword. Oliver was not old enough but we were able to purchase the shield and sword for him! You can find the other packages on the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique website.
