Please do not assume "our purpose"....My daughter has alopecia (and it is progressing quickly into AU...total head/body hair loss).....she is completely bald, lost her eyebrows and is in the process of losing her eyelashes....she has a real hair wig, but I really don't want to have all that product put in her hair/wig, plus it cannot be "styled" like real hair like the ones listed...hence wondering about the disney wigs. My daughter doesn't want to feel any different from another girl going to BBB and being made into a princess. She wants to be able to pick out the dress, the shoes, the make-up, etc.....the whole experience. If it's possible for her to pick out a disney princess "wig" too..awesome! If not, then I will be looking at Ebay, etc. and find one to take with us. I hope I don't come across as being *itchy...it's a sensitive subject.

The BBB DOES have a selection of wigs for this instance. They will have a selection for your child to pick from and they will work with you to make it fit well and make sure she's comfortable in it. They'll also put in the tiara to the pixie dust. Whatever she's comfortable with <3 When you check in, let them know you'll need a wig and they'll prepare a selection for your daughter ^_^

Im always looking for a good deal on the nicer dresses also... Latley I have been preordering movies from the Disney Stores... I know I'll get the movie anyways so I don't mind Paying $20 for them... They normally give you a small gift and a coupon... The coupon now is $20 off a $40 purchase... Which basicly means I can get one of the Newer dresses for half the price! DD is buggin me for a Tiana dress so we'll see!

I don't know if they will give a cheaper rate for just makeup and nails, but they might. And worth a shot to ask.
I certainly didn;t mean any offense, but it is odd when someone has asked about wigs several times for BBB, since the thing is to get your hair styled there. Now that I know more, I'm sorry I gave you kind of a generic answer. Diseny is really good at making people feel special, so I'm sure your DD will feel like a princess no matter what they do. I think your best bet would be to find a wig before hand to be on the safe side. I wish they had a number to call and get someone there to help, but sadly all the calls go to the call center and the CM's there are not very well informed.
With the dress, I know I didn't see a "P" dress in the display at MK last March. But I did see them in DTD's World of Disney Store. If you can get to DTD before the appointment, you could pick one up there. You could look on the Disneyshopping site to see if they have them there. At one time you could call somewhere and get park merchandise sent to you as well. But if you see one you really like, I would get it beforehand. You can always hide it and surprise her the day of the appointment with it.
I am pretty sure they had the brown "P" dress at WOD. I think it might have had fur on it too.
I'm sorry too...this is such an emotional journey that we are on. That is one of the negatives about an email, forum, etc.....you can read things differently sometimes. She was just diagnosed this past June (2009) and for a while there it was just a few small spots that I could easily cover up with her own hair or with a head band, but all of a sudden it just all fell out within a matter of a few days right before Christmas. Then within the last few weeks, we have watched her eyebrows and eyelashes go. We have made plans to go to Disney for over a year now and as soon as my girls watched the vacation Disney DVD, it has been nothing but talking about the BBB and how they are going to look just like princesses. They can't wait for the magic to begin!!
I informed her that they might not have "P" and she is fine with that, but she is concerned about "hair"....I will take everyone's advice and purchase one online and take it with us just in case!

I have heard so many conflicting statements about this issue...that I thought wasn't going to be an issue. I've seen pictures from the BBB with wigs for purchase hanging up along side of the dresses, etc....but these pictures were taken over two years ago. Now people are telling me that they do not carry the wigs anymore. I will inform them a head of time.... is there a phone number that directly connects you to the BBB?? I might have to go through my travel agent since he was the one who booked our appointment. Either way, I will probably purchase a character wig a head of time just in case! Thank you for your response!

Not only this, but I would love to see more updated pictures of all the dresses and accessories for every character that they have!

Does anyone have updated pictures of the Cool Dude hairstyle? I was under the impression they added sparkly confetti to the boys hair. Am I mistaken?

Great photos! I showed my two boys the pictures. DS 5 says "No way." DS 8 says "cool. I want that done the day before we leave so I can go back to school with it."

Has anyone encountered a time when the castle location didn't have the dress your child wanted?

My DD has her heart set on a Tiana dress (has been asking for a year) and I keep telling her we"ll get one on vacation. I didn't purchase the biggest package, but our apt is at 10am, and we have nothing planned beforehand. I figured we can buy the dress and change in a bathroom if need be.

I am worried they won't have it though. I really don't want to buy one now and lug it around for the first week of vacation (we are doing Universal and then a cruise). However we will be in DTD one day prior- do they have dresses there?

Am I worrying for nothing? Oh- and she's a size 6.

We brought our own Snow White dress and they led us to the changing rooms at the back and said it was just fine. This was last Thursday and the place was packed.

If anyone has the dresses, it'll be the boutique. They get dresses before anyone else in the parks. If you want to add a dress (or anything) to your Coach or Crown Package they can do that for you when you get there. If you do find the dress in her size somewhere and want to buy it and bring it with you, you can use the dressing room, just let them know you need to change.
The great think about the Tiana dress is it's really comfy and stretches/pulls in well. So if she's in between a size, or you want to go up a size to get more wear out of it, the Fairy Godmothers in Training can bustle it up for her with some little clear elastics.
