Is there anything more magical than dressing up like a princess? Not if you're a little girl at the Magic Kingdom!
Do you know about Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique? It's a magical beauty salon that transforms your little girl into the princess of her dreams - right before her eyes.
I brought my daughter there a few years ago when she was three. We weren't sure what to expect, but I can tell you we weren't disappointed.
The boutique we went to was in the castle at the Magic Kingdom. You can purchase any one of the princess dresses right there in the salon: Snow White, Princess Tiana, Sleeping Beauty, Belle. My daughter's favorite is Belle.
Do you know which princess is your daughter's favorite?
We also got to choose her hairstyle and makeup - which is subtle in soft hues of pink and peach - and nail polish. Once you're set, your own personal fairy godmother-in-training works her magic...
But here's the really neat part. The room is oblong with mirrors on the wall; however, the chairs the girls sit in are turned away from the mirrors. This way, they can't see what their fairy godmother is doing. Once the princess makeover is complete, the girls are slowly turned around for the big reveal.
That moment is so magical. The look on my daughter's face was priceless. She almost didn't recognize herself. We snapped photos, thanked our wonderful fairy godmother, and then my little "princess" walked around the Magic Kingdom the rest of the day...with a beautiful smile on her face.
If you want to create this kind of magic for your little girl, a word of caution! Make a reservation as early as possible. This is such a popular place, so you don't want to wait until the last minute.
Also, they can work their magic on little boys, too. "Knight" makeovers include colorful gel and spiked hair, a sword and shield, and confetti.
"It'll do magic believe it or not! Bibbidi ~ Bobbidi ~ Boo!"
