Bibbity Boppity Boutique questions


#1

I have reservations for my DD4 and DD10 at the Bibbity Boppity Boutique. Some questions:
1. Do they have costumes for the 10 year old? The online Disney Store does not. She wants a Merida costume.
2. Are the costumes you purchase there much different from the ones from the online store?
3. 30-45 minutes about right for the time?
4. Any helpful hints I need to know about?

Thanks again to you all!

There are dresses, but I didn't look and don't know what sizes they go up to. There's no guarantee that they'll have, but nothing to say that they won't have what you're after either.

I would allow a little bit longer. We had to wait for a while before the appointment and then we went into the shop next door and had some more photos taken.

There was a photo pass photographer there when we went and she was brilliant and got loads of photos. Worth buying MM just for those pics. Not really any other tips I can think of other than to relax and enjoy it.

If there's a "must have" outfit, I'd strongly suggest buying in advance and bringing it with you, so you're not limited by stock on hand. Check non-Disney sources if the Disney Store doesn't have what you want.

I've also heard you should budget at least an hour for BBB.

My girls had the Coach package at ages 5 & 7 - hair extensions, make-up, nails, and they had an absolute blast ! Here's how I would answer your questions:

[1] I would highly recommend bringing your own dresses...no guarantees on that. We brought ours and had a mid-morning appointment...had them in a dress bag under our stroller til the appointment.

[2] Not sure how the in-park dresses compare in look, but I know they are pricey ! Try checking the Littlest Dress Shop online. We ordered a few dresses (just for in-Park wear) that were lightweight and well-made from this company.

[3] With waiting, changing, princess-ifying, paying, photos after in Castle Couture (awesome!), we were into the BBB for 80-90 minutes altogether. I would allow 90 minutes on a touring plan just in case.

[4] Bring your own brush, know that the look lasts all day, but be prepared with a change of clothes, the hair extensions were a big hit over the ballet-style bun....too tight !!, take lots of pictures, get the mini-photo shoot done at Castle Couture next door...if you have MM, it's included. Priceless !!

BBB was a highlight for us...hope it is for your family, too !!

We just took our girls in November ages 4 & 11. They both had the Coach package and loved it! My 11 year old did not want a dress just the makeover, but we bought a dress in advance for my 4 year old. This saved us a ton of money!

I don't know about sizes since we did not buy our dresses there. I agree with Jayzeeduck on the 80-90 minute time budget for the makeover and the pictures. It is a wonderful experience, and I don't think you would want to rush it.

Have fun and take lots of pictures!
