The previous poster is right. Dresses are separate or a part of the Castle package which is $189. The Courtyard package as the pp said comes with hair makeup and nails plus a tutu and shirt for $89.

There are two smaller packagages. One is hair and makeup and the little BBB backpack and the other is hair, makeup and nails with the little BBB backpack. Those are in the $60 range. You can bring a dress. I have seen girls wear their regular clothes though and are just as happy.

Buying a dress there will run you $70.

What about shoes?? I would think the "princess shoes" would be too uncomfortable to walk around the MK. What do you little princesses wear with their gowns? Tennis shoes?

I purchased dresses on sale from Disneystore.com and are bringing them with me. With Halloween soon, you can get an inexpensive costume. My DD will be wearing a pair of white OshKosh sandals with her costumes.

I did not want to buy special princess shoes so I planned for my daughter to wear some dressier sandals that have jewels that she already owned. Only I forgot to bring them w/ us to the parks so she ended up just wearing her black Mary Jane Crocs. Worked out fine though since it was raining when we were there and the dress was long enough to cover.

I used ebay to get my daughter's dress and the accessories. The dress was $20. The accessories ran me about the same because I got several things for her to choose from once we got there.

Here she is when the the Fairy Godmother in Training turned her to the mirror at the end.



Here are a few from her session in Castle Couture.







She wants to do it again even though she'll be 10 when we go back. She said she felt great getting made over and photographed like a model. She did a formal look this time because we were having dinner at CRT after. She said next time she wants to do a sparkly shirt with a fun skirt.
She is beautiful!!! I do love her choice of dress. My DD has a dress similar she is wearing to a wedding tomorrow, only burgundy, and she just loves it so much. Maybe I'll think about bring that along.

Your daughter looks so pretty. I know my little girl will love this. I'm thinking she'll like a fun party dress or something along those lines. I'm sure I can come up with something!

Thank you. I asked her for a while if she wanted to dress like a particular princess and she just could not make up her mind, so this was a great alternative.

My daughter is in my mother's wedding next weekend. If the wedding had been before the trip, I probably would have brought that one.

Thank you. I'm sure your daughter will have a wonderful time. It was a great experience and since you get the makeup and both bottles of left over nail polish to bring home, it is one you can bring home with you. She also really loves to be photographed and I do love the pictures. Thank goodness for photo pass.

About how long we're you guys there from start to finish? I am worried because my son has an appointment at the pirates league 1 hour after our BBB appt. I don't want to miss either. I booked months in advance but those were the only times I could get.

It was probably just under an hour for us from check-in to paying at the counter. They were not busy though and we did not have to wait. We were pretty much taken straight to a dressing room and then straight to a Fairy Godmother in Training once dd was dressed.

You may want to keep trying to move one or try to check into BBB early and see if they will take you. You can always do your daughter's photos after Pirate's League. Hope it works out.

I am trying to figure out if the photo+ would be a good value for us. DD doing BBB and DS is doing PL. they aren't going to be going on most of the scarier rides where the ride photo would be included so trying to see if it makes sense to upgrade. Thanks!!!!
I did not buy the package at BBB that includes the pics. Those pics come as hard copies..in a folder...after the photo session. I did however buy the pp cd and the photo sessions photos were added to that cd.

If you were looking at just doing the $60 package, there are still ways to not pay too much more than that..and still have the princess all done up. You don't get to pick your dress there (yes, that adds up) I kept an eye out at Good will, Ebay, the Disneystore and at halloween time at the costume stores. Honestly, my favorite favorite dress that I got for dd to wear one day only cost all of $5 at Goodwill. The one she wore to BBB though we got on sale at the Disney Store. We had a long trip, so I had picked up several dresses in the year I was planning the trip. One of the first that I got I altered (dd does not like long sleeves) By the time we were in WDW, it was too small, but she still wore it.

The altered "too small" dress that I picked up for less than $5



My favorite $5 dress



Disney store dress (with shoes that basically ended up being free due to the sale)

If you look at the above three pictures, you will see (maybe) that dd wore three different shoes. The shoes that matched her disney store dress gave her blisters just walking from the DTD BBB to the photo shoot. (not good) The black mary janes worked well, but were a bit slippery. The pink high tops were the favorite and when she wore the belle dress a second day, she wore them under that dress.

The day that we went, it was super busy. We waited probably a half an hour or more beyond our appointment time. Once in, it didn't take long... but I would definitely feel like an hour would cut it too close. I could be the exception though...
