Are you an adult woman who has seen your daughter or other small girl get a fab makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and thought, “I want one!” ?
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique came around long after my childhood turned into a pumpkin, so I never got the chance to have a Fairy Godmother sprinkle pixie dust on my fabulous new hairdo and send me off into the parks for an enchanting day of strangers telling me what a beautiful princess I am. Anybody relate?
But guess what?! The clock is turning back for you and me, because Disney is now offering a pampering package for ADULTS. It’s our time to shine, ladies!
Character Couture is a chance for grown ups to transform into the princess (or villain) of their dreams through custom hair, makeup, and nail styling.
Offered at four locations at Walt Disney World, Character Couture offers participate to channel their inner Disney character with stylists creating a unique look just for you. It is offered for adults, teens and tweens, as well as kids aged 4 and up.
Styling Options include:
- Hairystyling- $75 adult, $60 for 12 and under
Hairstyle of your choice like cascading curls, intricate braids or an elegant updo. This is hairstyle only-no shampoos or cuts. Think wedding up do or prom, with heat styling and glitter available. There are no “set looks”, so come to your appointment with ideas and pictures of which character you’d like to channel. The price includes a consultation with your stylist.
- Makeup–$50 adult, $40 for 12 and under
Cosmetic application to eyes, lips and cheeks―can be subtle or dramatic. Stylist won’t do foundation, so do that before you come. Again, a consultation is included in the price.
- Nails-$20 adult, $15 for 12 and under
This is nail polish application only, not a full manicure. In order to enjoy this experience you must have booked either a hair and/or makeup experience. Thing of it like the cherry on top!
Appointments can take anywhere between 30 minutes and 2 hours, depending on the package and the look you and your stylist create. Appointments are available at:
- Ivy Trellis Salon-Disney’s Grand Floridian
- Ship Shape Salon-Disney’s Yacht Club
- Salon by the Springs- Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
- La Vida Salon-Disney’s Coronado Springs
There are currently a bunch of discounts so make sure you ask about them when you book. Right now Annual Passholders, Disney Visa cardholders, and Disney Vacation Club members get 15% off.
You can book your Character Couture appointment 180 days out by calling 407-WDW-GLAM or (407) 939-4526. This is one of those things you cannot book online. If you’ve booked a package with one of our amazing TAs, Elizabeth Mallers or Erin Manor Johnson, they can take care of it for you! Pro-tip: Book earlier in the day so you have the chance to enjoy your cute look all over property: at the parks, your dining reservation, meeting your character inspiration!
This would be an amazing experience for a Girls’ Trip or a treat yo’ self moment on your next trip. I mean, you worked hard planning and saving, you deserve to look like the princess you are when you’re park hopping! It’s also a great option for teens and tweens who have outgrown the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique of it all, but still want to do something magical.
