Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique
Let the fairy godmothers at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique turn your little girl into a Disney princess. The makeover process takes about an hour and includes a full makeover package complete with a new dress, shoes, and other princesses' accessories. There are Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique locations in the Magic Kingdom and at Disney Springs.
Want a magical makeover for your little princess without the big price tag? Bring a dress from home and book an appointment at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for the lower-priced "Coach" package, which includes hair, nails, and makeup. You will save bunches on the makeover, but the experience will be just as magical.
Princess Character Dining
Get some one-on-one time with your favorite Disney princess and enjoy a great meal at the same time when you book a character meal, where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner at a variety of locations in Disney World dressed up as prince and princesses.
During your meal, a selection of Disney characters will stop by your table to visit, sign autographs, and pose for photos in a relaxed indoor setting. Favorite locations include Cinderella's Castle in the Magic Kingdom, Norway's Akershus in Epcot and the Grand Floridian's 1900 Park Faire.
