Behind-the-Scenes Look at Character Couture Makeovers

Am I the only adult that has been disappointed that I cannot be transformed into my favorite princess? Well, be disappointed no more!

Disney introduced a new salon package in May 2018 which allows guests to be transformed into their favorite characters.  The Character Couture packages are a little different from the pixie dust you will find at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.  For starters, there are no set looks offered.  Everything is open to interpretation.  These interpretations could be of different characters, movie themes, Disney iconic characters and more!

Get a behind-the-scenes look at the process in the video below.  See for yourself how each participant was transformed into Princess Jasmine, Princess Leia, and Maleficent at the Ivy Trellis Salon located in Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.  Each participant raved about their experience during their Character Couture transformation.  Since everything is open to interpretation you have the ability to completely customize your particular look.  For example, the individual who was transformed into Maleficent decided on curls instead of horns and opted for dramatic makeup.

There are three different Character Couture packages from which you may choose.

  • Storybook Style ($80)

This package includes a classic character-inspired hairstyle.

  • Magical Makeover ($105)

This package includes a classic character-inspired hairstyle as well as makeup.

  • Timeless Transformation ($120)

This package includes a classic character-inspired hairstyle, makeup, and nails.

Advanced appointments are recommended for the Character Couture package as the salon is almost always fully booked.  Appointments can be made at the following salons found at Walt Disney World Resort.

  • Ivy Trellis Salon (Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa)
  • Ship Shape Massage Salon Fitness (Disney’s Yacht Club Resort)
  • La Vida Health Club Massage-Salon-Fitness (Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort)
  • Salon of the Springs (Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort)

I think one of the participants in the video stated it best.  To quote her, “If you love Disney-inspired makeovers and looks and you wanna channel your inner prince or princess I would definitely come for a Character Couture Makeover”.
