Does anyone have any pictures to share of the Courtyard hairstyle? What do they do with the back? In the all front view pictures I was able to google-it just looks like they twist the sections of hair back into a ponytail and spray some glitter into the twists. Is the back of the hair just left in a ponytail? Do they include any accessories with the Courtyard hairstyle like the mickey barettes or tiaras?? Thanks!

Ok, I'll apologize up front... I'm about to ask one of those do the rules really apply to me? questions. Yes, I’ve become the thing I hate most. I appropriately hang my head in shame, yet ask the question none the less…

We're taking our granddaughter for her first trip to WDW next summer. Her cousin's been telling her about Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, so of course she wants to go. Stupid me, I let slip with a "that sounds fun" to both her and her mother. Today, I went to look up details and saw the age limit. She'll be five weeks short of her third birthday during our trip. How strict are they with the three and up rule?

Ok, I'll apologize up front again... now I'm going to make one of those deluded not our child grandparent statements.

She's very well behaved and mature for her age. She's been to salons with her mother on several occasions for both hair styling and mani/pedis. She sits perfectly still.

Now here’s the "have my cake and eat it too" part. So I'm guessing they don't check birth certificates at the boutique. Do they ask, though? I'd hate to outright lie about her age. I'd really really hate to disappoint her (and lose a deposit) if we're refused service, though.

Also, once she's got the hairdo, costume, and sash, I'm guessing she's not going to want to take them off for anything. Even if we do the DTD BBB, we'll eventually be going back to a park. As a 2 y/o, we won't have a park ticket for her. Will we have problems at the gate with CMs asserting that she must be 3 if she went to BBB? We're also on the dining plan, for which she eats free as a 2 y/o. (I guess I don't mind carrying around a copy of her birth certificate just in case questions like this were to come up, but I'd hate for anything like that to tarnish the experience for DDIL & DGD's first trips.)

Should we just buy her the outfit and make a big deal over a self-performed “princess” beauty session in the hotel room, or am I worrying over nothing and we should go ahead with the BBB?

They are, but they asked DS first if he wanted it. I'm sure I could have told her we didn't want it.

Hmm ok. I know they will want it if it is offered and I would never not let them get it They had knight shirts to wear to BBB but we were going to BOG after and have Beauty and the Beast themed tees. Maybe they need to wear those to BBB thanks

Does anyone know if the tinker bell wings purchased at BBB light up like the ones sold at the Disney store? My daughter saw a video of a girl with the light up ones and keeps talking about going to Disney and getting her tinkerbell dress. Its her birthday present so we want her to have the whole experience of getting the dress there for the first time, but I don't want her to be upset if the wings don't light up... She remembers everything!! I will have to suck it up and buy the dress before we head down if they don't light up, I tried calling and the CM told me they "think" they light up but didn't sound too sure.

Photo pkg

We'll be getting DD5 the package that includes the dress, hair, nails, etc. Is a photo pkg. included? We're getting PP+ so idk if that matters or not. If not, how much is a photo pkg. to add on. I'm talking about pics once the makeover is done.

When I made dd's appointment they asked her age. It wouldn't hurt to ask if they will accept her. Good luck.

This was my experience as well. The lady I talked to when I made her appointment asked how old my dd would be on the day of the appointment.

I bought an aurora costume for DD's bear yesterday. The bear look so cute in the costume and we intend to bring it to WDW so that DD can have it with her at BBB when DD is going to be Sleeping beauty too! Can't wait for the BBB! Wish I know how to post the photo of the bear here

It sounds like you are getting the largest package, (189.95 plus) so yes printed photos are included, a few 1 8x10 and some 4x6. With photo pass though you can have all of the pictures put on your card.
