Video & photo tour of the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique experience in Cinderella’s castle at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. Maybe you’ve seen kids running around Disney with those tight princess buns or wild colored hair extensions?
Here is where it is done…and boys can book appointments for a knight styling too.
I highly recommend this experience as truly one of a kind. Here’s my tips:
1. Bring your own princess dress for the little girls and book a less expensive package. The cheapest package is $49.95. We book the $54.95 as it includes make up and nail polish – plus the kids get to bring home the polish and makeup palette as a souvenir too. This package is by far the best value and in my opinion actually a steal in terms of the Disney experience.The more expensive packages will run you over $200.
2. Book months in advance. Reserve the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in the castle as your first choice. For my kids, stepping into a room in Cinderella’s castle is magical. We wouldn’t have it any other way. The other option is Downtown Disney – which can be great if you are planning a day off the parks and convenient if you are staying at a resort further from the Magic Kingdom or renting at a non-Disney hotel or resort.
3. Boys can participate too. For $14.95 they have a Knights Package. This includes a sword and shield shown below and a spiked hair styling that can include a color gel application. I booked this for my 3 year old so he wouldn’t feel left out, however, he did NOT want to sit in the chair to get his hair done by a stranger. It wasn’t an issue for him being a boy doing girl stuff, as his big sis loves to play with him in dress ups and make up – but as a little guy the idea of getting his done in an unknown location just kind of made him nervous. So we just let him get “Knighted” and he loved the souvenir of his shield and sword.
4. If the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is booked, try the Pirates League, a salon located near the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. For both boys and girls packages are about $30 and include a ton. We hope to try this out on our next visit.
What a day for our little princess and knight. Kenzie loved it despite looking skeptical in her videos- as it is a bit overwhelming to have a stranger combing your hair into that magical bun.
