Hands down one of the most magical parts of our 48 hours in Disneyland was the Bibbidi Bobbidi Princess Makeover we scheduled for Zelda. It also generated by far the most questions from you guys, which I really want to make sure and answer! Because if you’re thinking about booking this experience for your child during a trip to Disney and are on the fence, I feel it’s my responsibility to share how truly amazing it really was.

Like, there will be no regrets on your end, ZERO. You child will be in heaven, which means you’ll be in heaven too! So, to make things easier for everyone, I decided to take the most asked questions about the Bibbidi Bobbidi Princess Makeover and group them all together in one FAQ. If there’s still something you want to know that I don’t mention below, ask away in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer. Alright, here is everything I know about the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and the makeover experience!

Do You Need A Reservation?

Yes, 100% yes. This will make your life SO much easier. The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique website says they accept reservations up to 60 days in advance, so once you plan your Disney trip and are booking all your experiences, do this one ASAP.

Insider Tip: If you’re staying at the Disneyland Resort or on premises, they do offer priority reservations for guests. So if you weren’t able to get a reservation, ask a manager at your hotel to see what they can do. This is another big bonus to staying at the Disneyland Resort if you’ve been on the fence about where to stay.

Do You Get To Keep The Outfit?

Absolutely! Each package includes different accessories all the way up to a dress, which is included in the Deluxe Castle Package (what we did). Whatever package you choose, you get to keep everything given to you during the experience.

How Long Does The Experience Last?

Thirty minutes to an hour is what they quote on their website, but our experience took about 90 minutes from start to finish. This included the meet and greet with the princesses and the photoshoot, so it varies based on what package you get. It was 90 minutes well spent though, let me tell you!

How Long Did Zelda’s Hair Last?

Her hair lasted TWO DAYS! I have no idea how they did it. Must have been real magic because she swam three times, slept in it and rode on the plane with it and it was basically still perfect. Not as slicked back, but still very impressive.

Is There An Option For Boys?

Yes! There are packages for princesses and knights, so boys can enjoy all the magic too!

Can Adults Do It Too?

Sorry mom and dad, you’re going to have to watch this one from the sidelines. This experience is limited to kids ages 3-12. But it’s OK because you’re going to want to watch every minute of your child enjoying their time!

Was It Worth The Price?

YES. Spiro and I spoke several times after the fact about this experience and how blown away we were at its value. We did the most expensive package and it cost about half of what the Princess Brunch cost that we also did. If you’re looking at doing one or the other, I would definitely recommend Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. The value is insane for everything your child gets to experience and walk away with!

And yet, through it all, Cinderella remained ever gentle and kind, for with each dawn she found new hope that someday, her dreams of happiness would come true.
