This review of a recent visit to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique was inspired by the absolute magic of the experience. The new location for the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is at the back corner of Once Upon a Toy and is adjacent to the children’s splash pad area in the Marketplace section of Disney Springs. From the moment you enter the reception area, to the moment you are exiting the building, you are immersed in a magical adventure. Your Princess will be assigned a Fairy-Godmother-In-Training, they will choose their make-over colors, they will have the opportunity to see the Fairy Godmother herself in the Magical Mirror, and they will have their picture taken in a special photo-room complete with a Cinderella carriage.
As I entered the reception area with my grand-daughter, we were immediately welcomed by a lovely lady holding a star wand. She directed us to the reception desk where a young woman showed us the package options. There are packages offered for Princesses and Princes alike. We decided on the Crown Package with the Color Star hairstyle. Included in the package was the application of shimmering make-up, face gem, nail polish, Princess sash, Princess cinch bag, and two colorful hair streaks in the colors of my grand-daughter’s choice. She chose purple and blue.
We were then assigned a Fairy-Godmother-In-Training who told us she is still in training as she is only two-hundred years old. She guided us along a butterfly carpeted hallway with light green wainscoting and butterfly wallpaper. We were placed into a room where we were told to look for Gus-Gus as he had run off with the red ribbon. There was a seating bench on one side of the room and a large mirror against the wall across from the bench. As the door closed, the magical mirror came alive and before us was the Fairy Godmother telling us about this special day. She located her magic wand and asked if we knew the magic words, “Bibbidi, Bobbidi, Boo.”
As we stepped out of the room the Fairy-Godmother-In-Training took us into the salon area. There my grand-daughter received the royal treatment. She had one Fairy-Godmother-In-Training to do her hair and another Fairy-Godmother-In-Training to apply her make-up, nail polish, and face gem. They then had her hold a clear plastic-handled cover over her face and sprinkled her with fairy sprinkles while reciting a poem about wishes coming true. She also had a photographer who took pictures throughout the process.
I was taken to a location off the hallway to make the payment. One thing to note here is that you cannot add a tip to the bill. If you wish to tip your child’s Fairy-Godmothers-In-Training you must have cash and pay them directly.
When the make-over was complete, the photographer escorted us to a special photo room featuring a Cinderella carriage. This room is just beautiful and offers a wonderful background for your child to feel like the Princess she truly is. The photographer took a number of photos, handed me a photo card, and we were then taken back up to the reception area.
While reservations are recommended, we walked in and were given a space right away. In fact, on this particular day, we were the only family in the salon for the better part of the visit. I attribute this to the fact that this was the July 4th holiday and most families were likely at the parks.
The experience does not come cheap but the smiles on your child’s face and the boost of confidence you will notice in their demeanor makes the expense worth every penny. Magical moments with our little ones are fleeting moments in time that help us create lifelong memories. If you have been considering a booking at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for your child on your next visit to Walt Disney World, I say do it and you will not be disappointed.
