Your DGD is beautiful and her hairstyle is amazing, your DDIL is talented!
For my DD10, we also plan on skipping the hairdo part of the package because for our last WDW trip she got her hair done in a special braided style and she wants to get it done that way again. We will probably also just ask for the glitter and tiara along with the rest of the package components.

My DD's curly hair:


The night before BBB, I washed it and blow dried it out (it kept growing in the humidity! LOL):


And the final result:


Hope that calms some worries!


OMG, your DD reminds me so much of my DD5! Her hair texture is very similar to your DD's. While my DD10 probably won't get the hairdo part of the package, I really wanted to get the hairdo part done for my DD5. Thank you for posting this as I had some concerns. Your daughter is absolutely adorable!

We will be there in two weeks with our 3 & 7 year olds!!! So very excited for them. When I booked the BBB, they asked me to choose a package then and I chose the Crown package. Now we are planning to let them each pick out a dress when we get there. Can anyone tell me any advantage or disadvantage to just buying a dress when we get there vs. upgrading the package?? We have photopass + for this trip so we would get pictures that way. Just trying to figure out the best value here. TIA.

Thanks you! I'll have to find a picture where she was smiling the next time - this one we had a minor meltdown just before (wanted princess shoes,didn't want princess shoes, dress was itchy, etc. but it all worked out in the end)

I really enjoy looking at the photos of all the beautiful little princesses. However...

I really wish BBB would go back to no age restrictions. With that said, I am so very thankful I was able to do this right before the rules changed. I love the Disney princesses and really enjoyed the BBB.

Thank you! Who braided her hair before? I hope your DD really enjoys her appt again!

Just an FYI - not sure if it's been said before - I didn't see it on Page 1. If you are staying on property, you can book your BBB appointment with the same180 plus 10 rule they have with the dining. (meaning up to 10 days past your check in date) You can call the phone number at 7am ET.

I got our princess an appt for the time we wanted with no problem!!! I mentioned that we would do our own hair, and they were fine with it.

We got her hair professionally braided at a salon near our home before our last trip. Usually my sister will do it if she is in town. This would be both of my daughters' first BBB experience as they were not interested in going for our last Disney trip. Now they are saying they want to do the Pirates League too because I have an appointment there for their brothers

That's funny! I guess some girls really enjoy PL and you can be a mermaid if you wish! I got our boys set up for PL today! I'm bummed because the youngest will be a month out from 3 and they won't let him have an appt. We'll have to get some pirate stuff there and fix him up ourselves so he doesn't feel left out!

I made my first BBB appointment for both of my girls by calling reservations directly. I was given a reservation number but no email confirmation and I'm not able to put that reservation in the 'my Disney experience' app. William eventually get some sort of email confirmation? I'm just scared of having this Conf #, showing up the morning of our appt and bring turned away....

You don't get an email confirmation, I was nervous about it too. I called to double check why I didn't get an email and they told me that. I called a couple days to confirm our appt as well because I didn't want to show up and have a very unhappy birthday girl.

So, I bought my daughter a special tiara that I'll be bringing with me to BBB and she hasn't seen it or heard about it (she's getting Courtyard so isn't expecting one). Is there any way to talk to the FGiT first and just hand her the bag with it in there to have her just put it on at the end? Also, to ask her to please stop at some point before the reveal so I can put on her (surprise) clip on earrings sometime after she is finished with the hair?

Just make sure you bring the Conf# with you. They won't turn her away. When I made my PL appt - he was able to see the BBB in there - I can't link anything up either, but it was there. The My Disney Experience website is having lots of troubles right now.

Oh, and did you tell them you were celebrating her birthday? They will give her a Birthday Princess sash.
