Any suggestions on clothing for the 9 yr old? Is there anything pop princessy? 3 yr old will wear a Cinderella dress.
Sorry if this has already been answered, but I think the new Courtyard package would be great for a 9 yo. It has a twisty hairstyle, a pink BBB Tee and a pink and black tutu.

Do you have to "order" it ahead of your appointment? I'm not certain what the sizing is (my daughters are 6 and 8). Someone mentioned the Ariel dress; is that different from her "mermaid" attire (not too keen on those shells! ) Is there still a Merida dress or do you have to book a special package for that one (as someone suggested). Looking for some help.
Hi! Last I looked, I did not see a Merida dress at BBB but they are for sale in the parks (near Merida's meet and greet)- you could buy there and take it to BBB.
The Ariel options at BBB are the (beautiful) aqua ball gown -like she wears in the 3:00 parade- or the belly baring sea shell one. But, if your daughter must have a mermaid tail, the disney store has a much more modest version, and you can just bring it with you.
HTH.

They can also do glitter and spray in colors at the barber shop on main street, and last I looked it was free ( or close to it) only thing is no FGMIT.

I looked everywhere before we left home for a small frying pan last time we went and couldn't find one. I so wanted to do that with my DD, going to try again next time. I hear that my local sporting goods store sells 3" cast irons for $5 and all it would take is a white or metallic sharpie.

Color is no longer available at Main Street Barber Shop. It was discontinued some time ago as they had an issue getting the hair color.

If the latter, you can go to castle couture shop where a CM (dressed similarly to FGiT) can sprinkle pixie dust in your DGD hair and doubtless apply a tiara too. You can either do it in the photo shoot studio (no BBB appointment required, but you may have to wait) or in the shop in front of Aurora's magical dress . . .
All for free. Seems like you could buy some nice Rapunzel souvenirs with the money you'd save. ( you may want to ask at BBB though. depending on how busy they are, they might do it without you having to pay for the package)
Plus, on another thread I saw the cutest idea- someone brought a toy frying pan and had R. autograph it! Too cute.
Thank you! That is a great suggestion - I'll keep it in mind for others. But, yes, we are wanting the make-up and nails. Just for the special treatment. It does seem like a waste, since we are doing our own hair, but it is a memory we're making! We did buy a dress on e-bay that came with a tiara and wand - the dress has a Rapunzel pin on it, so she will be pretty happy with that. I also found some Sketcher's BOBs on sale with the twinkle toes light ups - lots of purple and pink in those - so they can have pretty but comfy shoes to wear around the park that day!

Mini frying pan

For those of you looking for a mini frying pan - I found this one at Se@rs Lodge Manufacturing 3 Inch Pre-seasoned Cast Iron Mini-Skillet. Hope this helps. Also if you want a more toy like one Toys R Us has a set called: Just Like Home Nonstick Cookware 14 Piece Playset - Black

I'm sure this has probably been asked and answered but I don't have time to go through all 200+ pages...
Is tipping expected/ not accepted at BBB? I need to know if I need extra $$ got this.

Thanks.

The 4 times my girls have gone we have always tipped. Cash. Into the hand of the 'fairy god mother'. Not sure if it's allowed but we have never had it handed back to us.
