Ultimate Guide to Taking Your Princess to Disney
You have a little princess and you decided to show her the magic of Walt Disney World.
Consider this your complete princess guide for having the most magical time with your little princess that you or her aren’t ever going to forget!
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique
Disney has recently announced that they are scheduled to reopen Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in the Magic Kingdom at the end of August!
We are so excited to see the little girls all made up by the Fairy Godmother again!
What is Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique?
This one of a kind all-immersive princess makeover can only be described as magical. From the moment you are assigned a fairy godmother of your own fairy godmother your little girl is transformed into a beautiful princess ready for the ball.
All little girls who visit Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique receive a pink sash no matter which package you purchase, and when Cast Members around the park see it, they will bow and address her as “Princess”.
Let me tell you, there are no words to describe watching your child’s confidence grow before your very eyes. See more about Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique’s packages and prices here.
What we love about Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is that the packages are flexible to the child. There are packages that include a t-shirt, because not all princesses wear dresses, (Raya, anyone?), some packages that include a Disney Parks dress, and there is even the option to bring your own dress from home!
In our experience the Fairy Godmother smoothed out the dress that had been shoved in a backpack and actually put it on a dress maker’s dummy to make the whole thing more special.
Interested in Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique?
As soon as you are 60 days out from your Magic Kingdom day, wake up extra early to be able to snag a time slot! These go FAST. Disney’s reservation system opens at 6:00 EST, but sometimes you can get it to load as early as 5:45.
Can My Daughter Wear Princess Costumes in the Park?
Absolutely your daughter can wear her favorite princess dress to the park as long as they are under 12 years old.
Dresses don’t even have to be from the Disney Store, they can be from Amazon or your own sewing machine. Whatever makes her feel comfortable and like the little princess she is.
Some great princess dresses on Amazon that we found:
- Full on princess with all of the accessories
- Easy going princesses
- Comfortable princess:
- Pixar princess:
Princess Meet and Greets
You can’t take a little princess to Disney World without introducing her to fellow princesses!
Princesses to Meet in Magic Kingdom:
- Merida (coming soon)
Princesses to Meet in EPCOT
- Snow White
- Mary Poppins (not a princess but she is practically perfect in every way)
What Happens When You Take Your Princess to Disney World
When my little girl was 5 years old she loved anything to do with princesses. I was fortunate enough to have alone time with her and take her to Walt Disney World.
We went to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and no joke, I cried. I cried because I watched her believe that she was a princess. That is a very powerful thing. Feeling like a princess isn’t just about overall appearance, it’s the first step in teaching confidence, self-respect, and strength.
After that makeover I watched her confidence blossom into the most unique and beautiful wild flower.
Her confidence grew to the point that when we met Princess Aurora at the Akershus (coming soon) princess dining experience, my little Anna Grace believed that Princess Aurora was an adult who came to Disney dressed as HER.
She was so flattered that this “guest” wanted to be her. You can’t teach that level of self esteem. That magic just happens.
The princess age is beautiful, sweet, and very short. I am so grateful that I was able to have those moments and memories with my sweet daughter that has grown now to no longer wear pretty princess dresses.
I will treasure these moments forever, and it makes me smile to see other mothers and daughters creating the same memories.
