Step inside an enchanted beauty salon that offers magical makeovers for young princesses and knights at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Sharing all our tips and tricks to make your appointment magical too.
B has wanted to go to Bibbido Bobbidi Boutique for months, actually years. I was worried that it was all hype and she would be disappointed with the actual experience. Boy was I wrong!
Tips and Tricks for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique
Our trip to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique was the highlight of her birthday trip. She was so excited the entire time she could barely sit still. B was smilling during the appointment and the entire night.
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Locations
There are multiple locations including two in Orlando and one in California.
- Disney Springs
- Disney World in Cinderella's Castle
- Disney Land in California.
We selected the Disney Springs locations for a couple of reasons:
- The location is larger. So it is easier to get reservations.
- Their changing room has extra magic to it. I will leave it at that so you can enjoy the surprise.
- You don't need to have a ticket to the parks so you could do it on a day you want to have an down day at Disney Springs, check out Free Things to Do at Disney Springs. Or before going to one of Disney's parties like Mickey's Not So Scary Party and Mickey's Very Merry Party.
- They have adorable photo opportunities in the boutique and around Disney Springs.
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Reservations
If you know when you’ll be visiting Walt Disney World Resort, they highly recommend you make a reservation up to 180 days in advance.
To book, you can call (407) 939-7895. Guests under 18 years of age must have parent or guardian permission to call.
A valid accepted credit card number is required at time of booking. A $10 cancellation fee will be applied to credit cards for all no-shows or if a reservation is canceled within 24 hours of scheduled time.
How Long is an Appointment at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique
Transformations will take 30 minutes to one hour, depending on the package selected. They also recommend that you arrive 15 minutes before your appointment to check in. So between that, parking and walking through Disney Springs I would give yourself about an hour to an hour and a half.
What to Bring to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique
- We brought our own dress with us from Little Adventures Dress Up Dresses.
- Extra shoes
- Your camera
- A hanger - I wish I had brought this. There was an adorable photo opportunity in the changing room.
Hairstyles at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique
This was the part we were not looking forward to. We have a local kids salon that does similar parties. And we joke that they use a full bottle of hair spray per kid. They have a number of hair styles to pick from.
Some people asked how long does Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique hair last? We had an appointment at 2pm. B picked the bun and she went strong until midnight since we went to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween that night.
A few pieces started to come out of the bun, but for the most part it looked good all night.
We did not wash her hair until the next day and it looked good.
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Restrictions (Age/Sex)
To participate, Guests must be between 3 and 12 years of age and be accompanied by an adult (18 years of age or older).
They have services geared to both princesses and knights so boys and girls are both welcome to come.
