Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique: A Cheapskate Princess Guide

Disney photopass Princess photo

Updated for 2017!

Seriously, have you ever seen a more beautiful princess?! If you have been to Disney World lately, surely you have noticed the astounding amount of little Disney Princesses running rampant (in full make up and plastic heels, no less) through the parks. Dresses, shoes, tiaras, shiny jewelry, and let’s not forget the princess up-do and sparkly make up. Holy Minnie Mouse, if your princess isn’t dressed to the nines, then she’s liable to feel like she’s been left out of all the fun. The quest for fun-time entertainment is probably not the issue if you are on a budget; it’s the ca$h.

How much will transforming your princess into an official Disney-fied Princess cost?

What is the Bibbidy Bobbidy Boutique?!

The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is an amazing salon where mini princesses can create their own wands, fill up jewelry boxes, and walk out with faux hair of a completely different color. The salon owner is Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother herself, although she leaves the day to day operations to wand-toting Godmothers-in-Training. Tiaras, sashes, faux hair, accessories, jewelry, painted nail…what more could a little Disney Princess ask for?

Where to Go

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique can be found in two convenient locations: inside Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom theme park and in 2016, the second location in Disney Springs moved to Once Upon a Toy store. You can make reservations at either of these location up to 180 days in advance by calling (407) (939-7895) which is also 407-WDW-STYLE. How cute is that?!

How Does It Work?

Your daughter will receive her own “Fairy Godmother-in-training” who will wave her magic wand, then break out the beauty tools, and turn your darling into a princess!

Depending on what services you want to pay for, you will choose a hairstyle, make-up, and nail color. By paying an additional charge, you can add accessories, a Disney princess costume, and keepsake photo in a princess-themed photo holder, if your brought $$$. In many ways, your options are only limited by how much money you want to pay.

The Hours

Hours may vary at the Magic Kingdom location based on park hours. Disney Springs advertises their hours as 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., but I would definitely call to confirm.

Know Before You Go

1. Reservations

As I said before, it looks like more and more girls are transforming into princesses, so it’s definitely worth your time to call and make reservations once you have decided to let the transformation begin. Even the Disney website acknowledges these makeovers are very popular and suggest you make reservations. Call (407) WDW-STYLE or (407) 939-7895 to book your appointment with a Fairy Godmother-in-training.

Guests under 18 years of age must have parent or guardian permission to call.

2. Credit Card to Hold your reservation

A valid accepted credit card number is required at the time of your booking. A $10 cancellation fee will be applied to credit cards for all no-shows or if a reservation is canceled within 24 hours of scheduled time.

3. Time Needed

A princess transformation will take 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the package you select. Make sure you keep this in mind if you have dinner reservations or need to be somewhere at a certain time.

4. Age Restrictions

At the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, guests must be accompanied by an adult 18 years of age or older. To participate, guests must be between 3 and 12 years of age. I know many a young at heart Disney Princess who are still waiting for them to open this experience up to adults.  

5. Ask for a Discount

Ask a Cast Member if they offer a discount.  I have heard of discounts being offered to Disney Vacation Club members and Disney World Annual and Seasonal Passholders. They may tell you no, but it certainly never hurts to ask.

If these prices are out of your range, and I am financially thankful every day my daughter left for college before this became so popular, then there certainly are other options for those of us wondering how to pay for tickets, much less afford $60 princess dresses. 

  • You can do your on little girl’s hair and make up in your hotel room. 
  • Tiaras are available at Wal-mart, and used princess dresses are for sale on Ebay and at yard sales all the time. You just have to take your time and shop for a low price. 
  • You can take your own photos of your princess and print them out yourself. 

The prices are pretty steep at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique because what you are paying for is an experience, and at Disney World, whether that be a souvenir or an event, you get what you pay for. 

And thank you for stopping by for some pricing tips on a grand Disney Event that is certainly not mandatory but has the potential to be quite possibly one of your more memorable experiences…if you have the cash.
