This week in Disney history is an important one for Disney Princess fans – in 2006, for the first time, young guests began receiving royal transformations, thanks to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and its team of Fairy Godmothers-In-Training.
In case you haven’t dropped by, here’s how it works. First, young princesses ages 3-12 have their choice of three hairstyles: Fairytale Princess, Disney Diva or Pop Princess. Then they choose from a variety of packages that include hairstyling, makeup, a princess sash and tote, and plenty of other royal “extras.” Boys can also stop in to be transformed with The Knight Package, which includes hairstyling with colored gel, and a sword and shield. Additional merchandise and photography options are also available.
There are now two Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique locations at Walt Disney World Resort: at Downtown Disney, and in Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park. (There are also one in Sleeping Beauty Courtyard at the Disneyland Resort and one aboard the Disney Fantasy cruise ship).
If you’d like to check it out for yourself, reservations are recommended for both locations, and appointments can be made up to 180 days in advance by calling 407-WDW-STYLE (407-939-7895).
