Throughout the Disney parks you will find several Face Painting Stations. Recently I took my son to get his face painted at WDW and wanted to share some Tips & Tricks with you to help make your experience more magical!

1.Each face painting station offers the same selection of about a dozen faces you can choose from. These are your only choices and range from flowers and princess inspired faces, to dogs and pirates.

2. You should expect to pay around $15 for the face. We chose a Pirate face that was $12, but others ran a little more or about the same.

3.You can tip the artist if you feel they did an especially good job!

4.The actual painting of the face takes about 5-10 minutes and is very quick! I was able to get my little guys face painted outside of Mouse Gear and make it to Akershus for dinner with time to spare!

5.My biggest concern was how easy the paint was to get off. Let me tell you, this is magic paint! It comes off easily with soap and water, or just water really! The magic is that it does not smudge or come off well when your fidgety kid wipes their face!

I think face painting is a great way to let kids get into the spirit of Disney without shelling out the big bucks at Bibbidi Bobbidi or Pirates League. We got tons of compliments!

Have you ever tried the Face Paining at Walt Disney World? How did you little one like the experience? Let us know in the comment box below.

  1. My 6yr old absolutely loved it! He is now saving his money so that he can do it again on our next trip. He picked a lion face while we were at Animal Kingdom. I was very impressed with the artist, she made it look so simple!

  2. My daughter got her face painted at Hollywood Studios last year for her 5th birthday. She chose the cat princess and it was ADORABLE!! She was so still we thought she had fallen asleep. She loved it! Throughout the day she would spontaneously ask how her “makeup” looked. They also said they would do free touch-ups during the day, nice bonus.

  3. My girls ask for this every trip. They like it as much as the pirates league mermaid makeover. And it’s way cheaper. I think you should have mentioned to do this in the morning. They do free touch ups all day so you can really get your monies worth by getting an evening touch up before dinner. I highly recommend it!

  4. My son did PL a couple of years ago and I didn’t have one bit of trouble getting it off. We are planning on doing the face painting in June.

  5. We did the Pirate’s League in December. I don’t know about the other spots, but this paint was AWFUL to get off. Well, the black was. Almost rubbed the faces raw trying to get the black off. Even my wife’s make-up remover wouldn’t work. The rest of the color? Easy as pie. Will definitely be doing this again, but maybe next time, not nearly as much black.
