I went to BBB at DTD this Monday and tried to hand cash to our FGiT and she refused and told us to buy something special for our daughter instead. I tried again but she was adamant about not accepting it.

I handed cash to our FGIT at the MK in December and she thanked me and accepted it.

we've done BBB at DL, WDW more than once and most recently on the Fantasy... always tipped cash to the fgit, never had it rejected. Having said that, I've never gotten the impression that most people tip them.

My dd has been to the bbb 2 time the first time we attempted to tip the fgmit and was told it was policy for them to refuse all tips. The second time, before our trip I went to the store and found a Cinderella themed thank you card, put the money inside wrote "to the best fgmit in the kingdom" on the outside and gave it to the fgmit she gladly excepted it.

When we were there in August at the DTD location, I had forgotten cash the day my kids did BBB. I went back on another day and was given a little envelope that we could put the tip in and they had a wishing well that the children slip the envelope into.

I read the past few pages, but didnt' see any info on this so I'll just ask...sorry if it has been asked/answered already many many times!

What is the pricing like on the dresses in BBB? We did the castle package for dd last year, so the dress was just part of the whole deal, but I was just trying to price out what it might cost to do a smaller package & buy a dress separately.

Also, I have read that you can pre-order a dress in a larger size to be sure it will be available at your BBB appt, what phone number or email should I use to secure a dress? TIA!

I bought my daughter a dress in December, and it was $65. I got her a size 7/8 with no problem.

Booking Dates and Times

We get into Disney world on August 4th (181 Days from today). We are staying on property
I want a BBB reservation for my DD on August 5th. Can I book this tomorrow or do I need to wait until Tuesday?
Also, what time does the reservation line open for the BBB? We would like an appointment first thing in the morning.

Few questions...

What is your experience with a young three? My daughter is two now and will turn three at our next fall visit. She has a decent attention span but is also a bit clingy to mom in unsure environments,

Also, she has very fine, somewhat curly (babycurls), thin hair...that falls below her ears...can they do much with this?

Do you have options for hair without it being ridiculously tight...with her hair being so thin and fine...I am concerned over it not being comfortable for her...

Finally...where can I see images of the available hairstyles...I didn't see them on FAQ page...

My daughter will be going to BBB in April for the 1st time. Bought the cheapest package (Coach) and bought her an Aurora dress at The Disney Store for like $39.99. Way cheaper than what they try to sell it for in the parks. Plus you get 10% off a purchase $50 or more at The Disney Store if you use a Disney Visa, so you can even add a pair of shoes or tiara in there and get a discount!

If you buy the most expensive package, can you pick out any tiara they have in the store, or do you still get that little tiny silver tiara?
