    Have you tried ebay? Any time I can't find something locally that is the first place I check.
    If there are any consignment stores near by, they sometimes carry a good selection of costumes.
    Good luck! :goodvibes

    I went with Ebay too. But I didn't get a Disney costume, I went with a real dress. I thought it would be more comfortable because the seams are finished etc. They have lots of "Princess" or "pageant" dresses on there if you search. I found a beautiful blue (Cinderella blue) dress for my 4 year old DD for $9, new, and a fancy little ballerina dress for my almost 9 months old for $15, new. I also found a fancy little Swarovski crystal comb tiara for DD4 for $9 too.

    Try DisneyShopping.com. I know they have a sale on some of their dresses right now.

    Last year we bought princess dresses on a whim. We went into the store for my 7 yr old and came out with dresses for her and her 12 yr old sister.princess: princess: My DH and I were so surprised that the 12 yr old wanted to wear a princess dress! The girls wore their dresses to the parks, character meals and other table service meals. They had a blast! We did our own personal "photo shoot" at the Grand Floridian. It's so beautiful there and a couple CMs actually came over and made a bid deal about the girls and how beautiful they looked. They really felt like princesses that day. They loved the attention they got when they wore their dresses...priceless.:cloud9:

    We purchased ours off of ebay. I found the same ones sold in the park (they are tagged) and they were 1/5th of the cost. Out of all of them the cotton Minnie Mouse is the most comfortable, very easy to fit in a backpack and I know it comes in smaller sizes.

    I found a NWT Belle costume from the Disney Store on Ebay last year for then 15 month old DD to wear on our September 2007 trip. I paid only about $10 shipped for it and it was a 12-18 month size. There are usually tons listed on Ebay. I know that our Disney Stores also sell dresses as small as XXS which I think are a size 2/3 maybe so maybe you could look for that size while at WDW or try DisneyShopping.com instead? :)

    Good luck! I have to start looking for dresses for my 2 DD's soon as well. Youngest will be 2 on our next trip and and is teeny and super petite so she should be easy. Oldest will be almost 9 but is solid and tall and can't squeeze into the 10/12's anymore which is the highest I have seen our Disney Store go up to in costumes. But I hate to pay the much higher prices at WDW so I am hoping to find something on Ebay before September 2008. :worship:
