We do Little Adventure dresses. People sell them on websites and ebay. My DD loves them and doesn't care at all they're not "real" princess dresses. It is super lightweight (packs into ziplock bags) and machine washable, which is really good because she will wear it all day at the parks and at home ...

Funny story, although it hurt me to do it, the Aurora dress is long sleeved and my DD's current favorite princess is Aurora and really really wants to wear Aurora when we do BBB, next week, and she doesn't like the "itchy" dresses. So I cut the sleeves off, yikes! But I know she doesn't care, as long as she can wear it.

I feel a little cheap, bringing my own dress, but you know, my DD just prefers these dresses and will wear it all day, so that's more important.

Don't feel cheap at all for bringing down the dress! I think it is smart. Prices in the park are crazy!! I wish I had known a couple of weeks ago. I just sold my daughter's soft princess dresses a couple of weeks ago at a consignment shop. I believe I got them when they were on sale from the Disney website. Good luck!

I got my DD her Sleeping Beauty dress from Disneystore.com for when she goes to BBB and the My Disney Girl Princess Tea at the Grand Floridian. It's the deluxe light up one and was on clearance. I think I paid about $40 for it and had a coupon. She loves it. Try Disneystore.com, you might be surprised what you find.

Just keep in mind that they have all the princess dresses, crowns, shoes, etc. on display when you first walk in and they don't take you in right away. I bought a Cinderella dress for my niece. When we got there she wanted Ariel. Since I'm a sucker she got the Ariel dress and wore the Cinderella one to 1900 Park Fare.

We didn't get a dress, DD had tons at home and didn't even want one. We saw so many little ones all hot and sticky and crying in those dresses! I certainly wouldn't want to wear one if it was hot. So go with a comfy one that you can take off when it gets hot. We saw a lady telling her crying daughter she had to look good for dinner and it was only noon!!!

Watch out for the waiting time before your appointment, they knew what they were doing at DTD by putting BBB in the Disney Store's costume section! ;)

We went in 2007 to BBB and afterwards to MNSSHP, both girls brought their 'favorite' princess costumes on the trip, however, while waiting for our turn at BBB, they fell in love with the Aurora long sheer sleeved costumes.

$120 later :scared1: they were in them getting the royal treatment, and by the end of the night begging to take them off. With long sleeved shirts at home it wasn't a big deal, but in the Orlando heat, VERY uncomfortable. The OP have nicer looking dresses that would be a better choice, IMO, than the ones at Disney.

BTW, I made them wear those suckers to every Halloween party and trick or treating that year and the next! (I bought each one a size larger so they could wear them for a while, I mean come on, $60 each!!!??) Anything for my princesses. princess:

I may be cheap, but my DD will just barely be 3 when we go to The World in Dec. I plan on getting her the Target dresses and she's wearing her long sleeved pink leotard under it... is that lame?

We took our granddaughters last September and bought the cheaper version of the dresses on ebay. Sure it save 20 bucks each, but they were itchy and uncomfortable. I even put some extra trim on them, put t-shirts under them and they did ok, but they were still not something they were happy to wear all day. I will be taking a younger granddaughter back in 2 years and I will be buying a much nicer dress so that she will be happy. I do understand wanting to save the money too, everything sure gets expensive. Disneystore.com has cute dresses at better prices than WDW and they are much nicer quality than the ones in Wal Mart, Target and many of the e-bay sites. It isn't much of a money savings if they never want to wear the dress.

We bought our daughter a beautiful dress with a petticoat on ebay and brought it with us last December. It only cost about 20 dollars and she is still wearing it. It is well worth looking on ebay and bringing it with you.princess:

My DD6 is really sensitive to itchy fabric. I wondered what we were going to do and looked at mydressuptrunk. We ended up deciding on a couple sun dresses I ordered online from Disney. You can see them in my TR link in my siggie. We ended up skipping BBB since I couldn't get a ressie for my three week shy of three - two year old. The girls look pretty and I did their hair and stuck in tiara's from Claire's in their hair.

No, I don't think it's lame. BUT... you may want to rethink the leotard when it comes to potty time. You'll have to completely undress her every time. My girls wear leotards under their dresses at home, but they just wore snug-fitting long sleeve shirts (I think one was actually a pajama top, lol) and shorts or leggings under the dresses in the park.

We are doing the BBB in September for the first time. I went to the disney store a purchased a beautiful Sleeping Beauty dress for $49.99 with 25% discount (special promo they ran at the time) which was normally $80.00. So we are taking that along.

I won't pay that amount of money (personal choice) but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do NOT make your kids wear those plastic dress up shoes around all day.

I saw a little girl complaining about wearing them, and the mother telling her that SHE...the little girl...should have thought to bring another pair of shoes.

I was just coming to post this. There isn't a huge Princess selection but there are a couple that could work. I miss when my dd loved to dress up in her princess costumes princess:

I bought this one for DD last year - although it was planned and budgetted for (can it be considered "in the budget" if it is a $60 play dress??:rotfl:). Anyway, just like you, DD wore if for Halloween, her Pirate and Princess Birthday party and her cousin borrowed it too. We are going to get our $60 out of it!! We are bringing it this year too!! And darn it, she is going to wear it!!:lmao:

I also got 2 dresses off of Kijiji (Similar to Craigslist) for $5 each - they were both Disney Store dresses - Cinderella and Ariel. DD does not know about them, so I can "surprise" her with them when we are there. Hopefully this will help with the "I wants".

OMG!! That is horrible!! We had spare shoes for DD whether she was in plastic shoes or not!! We always had sandals and runners with us!! (Thank goodness for strollers - I had that think packed full daily - LOL!!)

That's sad!!:sad2: I want her to have fun and she wont have fun if she is not comfortably. I wont walk around all day with my feet hurting and she wont ether. We plan on getting Keds and white cotton bobby socks. But she will just turn 4 before we go so i plan on taking a breaks threw out the day.

I have actually purchased cute custom clothing off of ebay/etsy that is made with character fabrics and/or appliques. I could give you the names of the sellers if you wish, just drop me a PM. One seller made me a cute top and skirt and minnie was dressed up as tink. She also had minnie dressed up as princesses too. They are kind of expensive, BUT she can wear them again and she'll be able to breathe in them as they are all cotton. :) You could also resell them when you get back and make at least 1/2 of what you spent back.
