The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Walt Disney World is one of the funnest extra’s you can do if you have a little girl! The salon is normally noisy and crowded but each “Fairy Godmother” treat the girls as if they are the only ones there! It is a must do for us each time we visit Walt Disney World. In order to make that happen, I have had to come up with ways to do the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique on a Budget!
The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique offers three different packages to choose from.
- Coach Package includes hairstyling and shimmering makeup—starting at $49.95 USD plus tax.
- Crown Package includes hairstyling, shimmering makeup and nails—starting at $54.95 USD plus tax
- Castle Package includes the Crown Package plus the Imaging Package (one 6″ x 8″ and four 4″ x 6″ photos in a princess-themed photo holder) and complete costume of your choice with accessories—starting at $189.95 USD plus tax.
We ALWAYS choose the crown package! Not only do you get the hair, makeup and nail – there is a photopass photographer going around taking your daughters picture constantly! So if you have already ordered the photopass cd, like we do, there is no need to have extra prints of these when you have already paid for them on the photopass cd.
On top of choosing the Crown Package for our daughter, we always bring a princess dress from home! We normally make a trip to our local Disney Store before our vacation and pick up a dress of her choosing. This runs us normally less than $40.00 depending on which dress she chooses and if we get accessories. That is a lot cheaper than the dresses at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique! And guess what… they treat you no different if you bring your dress from home! Just tell the ladies up front and they will arrange for you to go into the fitting room and put it on just like the girls who bought the more expensive package! It really is great, Disney does a great job of accommodating people with all types of budgets! You certainly don’t have to bring a princess dress at all. One year my daughter just wore a special outfit we picked out for her instead! Etsy is a great place to look for custom outfits and they are reasonably priced! No matter what you choose for your child to wear, your Fairy Godmother will make a fuss over her!
I also like the crown package because of the goodie bag you recieve at the end of your daughters makeover. You will receive the makeup pallet used on your daughter, two bottles of nail polish, the rest of the face gems and a pretty sash! It is really fun to take this bag home and use it to play Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique with your child once your vacation is over!
There are several dresses and accessories for sale at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. They are never forced on you, in fact I have never even been asked if I would like to purchase anything other than my package! It is really great to not feel pressured into spending more money! Make sure you do save a little cash out to tip your Fairy Godmother! They do a great job with the girls and make it a lot of fun! You can put your tip in a special wishing well and make a wish, everything is an event at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique!
And here is a tip for moms too, at the end when they glitter up your daughter ask for them to do you too! They will sprinkle pixie dust on you and you can be glittered right along side of your child! It is a fun little extra I love to have done!
No matter which package you choose, you will certainly have a great time and with my tips you might save a little money too!
