Disney’s Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

Disney's Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

Hello Couponing to Disney readers! I’m Carrie, vacation specialist with Destinations in Florida, an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner, and I visit you each week here on Couponing to Disney to answer some Disney FAQs. I love hanging out on Couponing to Disney every week with you, answering questions about the Happiest Place on Earth!  Are you all booked for your 2015 Disney Package?  Or maybe considering a trip over the holidays this year?  It’s not too late to get Free Dining, or get your trip set up and booked for next year!  One of the next steps after booking is getting your Advanced Dining Reservations and special events booked for your family!  Disney’s Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is a very special experience for every princess!

How early can I make reservations for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique?

Reservations for BBB can be made at 180 days prior to your check in.  They require a credit card to hold your reservation.

How does Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Work?

Your daughter is beckoned by her Fairy Godmother {in training} to receive the full princess treatment.  Based on the package you choose, you can choose a hairstyle, make up, and nail polish.  Some packages include a princess dress and a keepsake photo as well.  You can upgrade your package upon arrival if you would like.

Where is the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique?

The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique has two locations on Disney property.  The Downtown Disney location in the World of Disney is larger, therefore it is often easier to get an appointment there.  The other location is in Cinderella’s Castle, and is a great choice before heading to Cinderella’s Royal Table for a meal!

How much time should I allow for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique?

Your little princess can be transformed in as little as thirty minutes.  Some sessions can take up to an hour.

Do you have any money saving tips for the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique?

You are welcome to bring your own princess dress and accessories to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Sometimes the Disney Store will have sales on their princess costumes, and from experience, they are good quality.  Also, your photo shoot at BBB is free.  If you have MemoryMaker, the photos can be loaded to your MagicBand, and you can print them how you choose from home!

American Idol Experience Closing To Make Way For Star Wars Land


Rumor is that Star Wars Land is coming to Hollywood Studios. To make way for this land, Disney has announced the closure of The American Idol Experience in January 2015. Rumors are that Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular will also close at the end of the year but it has not been confirmed.

Disney has not officially announced details of the Star Wars Land, but we can expect a formal announcement in the coming months. So far we have heard that most attractions will be on the same side of Echo Lake as the existing Star Tours attraction. The anchor attraction is rumored to be Endor Speeder Bike and there will be a X-Wing Fighter spinner attraction that would be geared towards kids. It is also expected that the Jedi Training Academy will move indoors into the Sounds Dangerous building. More rumors include Mama Melrose’s being replaced with The Mos Eisley Cantina.

When I hear more, I will be sure to let you know! It sounds like it has the potential to be huge and that Walt Disney World is trying to catch up with Universal’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Star Wars has been big forever and it appeals to both the older and younger generations. Personally, I would rather see Cars Land but I understand why Disney is going this route.


Updates To Walt Disney World’s Photopass Plus

022 (3)

There are new updates to Walt Disney World’s Photopass Plus. Previously, you received a package of photographs at select table service restaurants with Photopass Plus. You will no longer receive the printed package, but the digital version of the photographs will be added to your Photopass Plus account.

This applies to the following restaurants:

  • Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue
  • ‘Ohana
  • 1900 Park Fare
  • Tusker House
  • Disney’s Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show
  • Chef Mickey’s

The Photopass printed packages are still available at Cinderella’s Royal Table and Akershus until January 4th, 2015.

Also, you no longer have to present your Photopass Plus card at the register to receive your attraction photos. As long as you have synced your Photopass Plus with your MagicBand, the photos will automatically be added to your account when a long range RFID reader reads your MagicBand at the exit to the attraction.

Extra Cash: Get paid to complete surveys with Mindfield Online

Mindfield Internet Panels is currently accepting new applications. You can earn cash for your opinion and for testing full size products.

Mindfield is one of my favorite survey companies. I’ve tested a few products for them (they pay you and send you the product to test free!). I have even been offered some really high dollar surveys ($7 and $8!).

One of my readers joined and the same day she received TWO $25 surveys the day she joined! They were surveys that you complete daily over a 2 week period, but how cool is that?

The minimum to cash out is just $5 and you can opt to receive your payments via Paypal.

Here’s what readers had to say:

I got paid 10 bucks from them to try something once. That was pretty cool. – Ashley

I have been active with Mindfield for 5 months and I just started my 5th product test for them. And these products are awesome and something that I would buy for my family. – Sandy

I actually qualified for a $25 survey a few months ago. I ran through the house jumping for joy. – Pauline

This is one of the many ways you can add cash to your fund. Be sure to see all the ways to earn extra cash.Go here to read to the Getting Started “Couponing to Disney” page.
