Look through my Trip Report (link at the bottom). If that is the one you see on DSO then YES it is the most amazing dress. It's a rich velvet and is wide at the bottom. It's one of my favorite dresses ever! One of my friends is listing all of her old dresses on ebay. I think theirs was a 5/6. She had this same one. It was a deluxe dress when it came out in '06. It's not real itchy. My DD wore hers for about 4-5 hours and never mumbled a word. She's usually sensitive to the itchy laces and decorations. The one from Disney is beautiful too but it's not that pretty!

Oops

All of you who sent me PM's earlier today...I made a typo. The end of the name, last two things were supposed to be 4U not U4. Sorry.

Any questions...just ask.

Thank you both for the info. I've prepaid for my photopass, so I'm really trying to get the best bang for my buck!

Too funny- I followed the link to your trip report, and noticed that I had actually commented on your daughter's red Belle dress in your TR! I love your trip report- so many pictures. And this thread is fantastic!

Unfortunately, I don't think the dress I see on Disney Shopping is the same one your daughter has. It's on clearance for 19.99, but they only have XXS. I'll watch ebay. DD is 7, turns 9 in October, but she is very tall for her age and will likely need a size 10, since costumes usually run smaller than clothes.

just to let you all know - the OP said that the dresses at Target do not look at all like the dresses you get at the Disney store. Well I got one of the Belle dresses at Target and brought it over to my friends house that has a Belle Dress from the Disney Store. There is absolutely no difference. The tag in my Target BElle Dress is a disney tag. I paid $15.00 compared to $40.00.

I've seen the two dresses also and there is a difference. The back of the target dress is open with velcro closures, and the material is different in the back. The disney ones do not have any opening in the back and the dressier material goes all the way around. IMO, the target dresses ARE much cheaper in quality.

Oh my goodness! You were right, The Ariel dress is gorgeous! I think I'm going to have to get it now. I'm going to need a separate suitcase for the gowns I want my DD to wear.

Just a note...the dresses sold at Discount Stores only fit a certain size as well. Usually between 3-5 years old. There's nothing wrong with those dresses if you choose to use one. They're adorable. But they are not made like the ones you buy at WDW or the ones sold at the Disney Store.

And FYI....I only pay 29.99 for my WDW dresses! I'm a bargain hunter as well!

Thanks so much for all your hard work taking pictures for us, OP. Could you please PM me the name of your Ebay seller? I am new to the boards and don't have enough posts to PM you. I have an appointment for my daughter in Sept. and want her to have a dress before then because I know it would take her FOREVER to decide at BBB. :-)

Thanks!

New Stuff Added!

Wanted to let ya'll know I updated the first post. Added pictures of the make-up kit, the Mickey bow, the boys hairstyles, and some pictures of the brochures we were given. If you look you'll see BBB used to start at $35! That was in Summer of '06! Anyway, take another look at that. I also added pictures of the portrait folder too. This is one we were given in Summer of 2006. Enjoy!
