I am "renting" my friends daughter and taking her to Disney World with me in October. She is 8 years old and has never been to Disney. I am so excited. I already have ressies for BBB and CRT. I don't have any kids or nieces or nephews of my own so I call her my "Disney Niece". I can't wait to show her the pictures of these dresses.

Is it sad that I am using an 8 year old child to live my disney dreams through vicariously?

WDW sells boy costumes too! I know they have Jack Sparrow and Captain Hook at least! Boys can get all done up at the BBB! I had a pic of this handsome little boy on the first BBB costume thread! He went to BBB with his twin sister and they had some amazing pictures taken!

Great pictures of all the new arrivals Tammy. I have to say I think my favorites of the bunch are Jasmine and Belle, although I love the detail on the sleeves of the Ariel dress!! I have always loved the Snow White costume, but I find it looks cheap compared to the others. How do you rate the SW costume?

Honestly? I liked the older one better. I felt it looked more like SW's costume she wears in the parks. The only thing I did not like was the cape and how it would fall down. On my DD I liked the Belle, Ariel, and jasmine the best out of the new ones.

I've had about 40 PM's today and I forgot to mention to you all...when you go to her auction page you might not see but one or two dresses/pairs of Crocs listed. If you email Mrs B she can get the Princess/Size you need. She will then send you a bill through paypal or list it and let you bid on it. Whichever you prefer. I've seen her Alice costumes get up in the $50's before so IMO the 29.99 is the best way to go. The auctions do start at 24.99 but then you have to bid and wait...maybe bid agagin...then cross your fingers... Just wanted to let ya'll know.

For those looking for well made and cheaper dresses shop ebay uk . Thay have Marks and spencer which make rally well made costumes. Uk ebay also seems to have more selection and to Canada the shipping is cheaper the if i was to buy one off of bay.ca. Just remember it's under fancy dress not costumes.

I have been reading both your trip report and your thread here. Your pictures are all so cute !! And I love all the costume changes. Would you mind sending me a pm with the info for the person you buy from through ebay. I bought a Belle dress from a powerseller on e-bay before I started reading your thread - I hope it turns out to be a good purchase! Keep up the great work on both of your threads

Have booked 3rd visit to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for August this year. My 5 year old daughter can't wait it is one of the highllights of her trip. Previously had full package and has been turned into Cinderella and Belle. Good value as you get all of the accessories too and the photo's are fantastic. I am just as excited as she is this year, I like the look of the new dresses and shoes.

One more question- I saw someone talking about a store in NYC that sells the same dresses as WDW. My DBIL works in manhattan. Can you tell me the name of the store and where it is located? Thanks

If I am not mistaken they have a World of Disney store there. I wish they still had a Mulan costume. We bought one from the Disney Store for our Cruise this year and DD loved it. No itchy lace she wore that thing all day.

Does anyone have a dd with short hair who's had this package done? Any pictures? My dd would love to do this, but she has a short bob cut and there is no way they could put her hair in a bun. It's a bit pricey if all they do is sprinkle pixie dust in her hair.

My daughter was really wanting the pirate costume but I see that they no longer have it as one of the costumes. Any idea where I could get this costume so I could bring it with us? Our trip is not until December but I'd love to go ahead and purchase it now.

Thanks!
