Overall great time. My daughter enjoyed the pampering and she looked so cute. Of course, she picked the "diva" style and pink hair. I let her roll with it and the pink actually turned out cute. It definitely was a head turner in the park. I plan to do this on each subsequent trip until she tires of it.
Lekia,
A quick question...did the birthday tiara come with the package? I am taking my DD for her birthday in Feb and that tiara would be perfect.

Very cute picks by the way...love the attitude

Thanks, Cheryl. No, the tiara didn't come with the crown package. I bought it on eBay.
Paid $5. Well worth it; it got her lots of attention.

Hi DISers!

For my daughter's 11th birthday in March, we're going to WDW. I decided I'm going to surprise her with the BBB. I'm deciding whether I should:

A- Take the day in MK and have her makeover there, then maybe have a nice dinner at CRT

-or-

B- In the morning, go to DTD and get makeover, then transfer to other park.


Other options are appreciated, too! Also, what should I do with my 3 year old son? Is there a "prince package" for his age? Thanks in advance!

IMO if you're going to pay for the BBB the castle is much more special. And eating at CRT afterwards is just fantastic for a newly done up princess!

There are prince packages - I don't know if they are here or at the Barbershop though. There's also pirate makeovers elsewhere.

For the tender headed child

So my DD is very tender headed.... She would love to do BBB, but does not want them twisting her hair and such. I thought the courtyard package would be great. She would love the outfit, but again they are braiding the hair. Anyone else have a child like this? What was your experience?

Hi! Aww, this thread brings back memories. I was a Fairy Godmother in Training at MK's BBB from September 2007- January 2012 when my husband and I moved to CA. I miss it so much! Did any of you have me do you child's (or your) hair? I would love to see pics or videos! I was photographed and video taped all day long- most of which I never got to see the results. I was the only one there named Angela and was also known as the singing Fairy Godmother because I constantly sang along with the background music while working.

Is there a thread/post on here that explains the differences in packages?

Her diva attitude came at no extra charge! LOL
Your little princess is so beautiful! She rocked that pink hair really well!

I'm sure it does somewhere in this giant thread... The packages descriptions are explained too on the Disney site. I believe they start around $50 dollars for hair and makeup.

I am curious as to the answer on this. My girls are sensitive and don't like their hair pulled too tight. I'm worried they will be upset and want it taken down. But they have friends who did BBB so can anyone give me some insight on this?

I'm taking my girls in March. I had originally booked the Castle package. Today, after talking about BBB with them, I discovered that they both want to be Ariel. The mermaid Ariel dress I've seen that they have at BBB is in 2 pieces and shows the belly, so I decided to change my plans and order the dress from Disney Store (one piece and covers the belly). I called the BBB number and let them know we will be doing the Crown package instead (they said I coud have just let them know the day of and hadn't needed to call). I am feeling good about my decision, and the savings is an added bonus!

That's good to know. I am surprising DD with a visit to the BBB and just randomly chose a pkg. I'm glad to hear it shouldn't be a problem to change it once we are there.
