    I have a couple of questions regarding this. I am going to MK from BLT for an early (8:40am) BBB appointment. Is there a limit on the number of people who can go? I'm not talking 20 people, but my mother, father, and I would all like to see DD get done up. We will also have DS18 months with us. We obviously will have park tickets, but will it be an issue for all of us to get early entry?

    Also if for some reason DD4, who acts like a standard 4 year old decides she does not want to get done up anymore, can we just go get on line for a ride? I know they won't be running yet, but will they escort us out?

    And last question, if her appointment is 8:40, what time should we be showing up to the MK?

    No problem bringing extra people to BBB but it will be a little cramped with additional people. It’s basically set up like a hair salon, with about as much room.
    I can’t answer about just getting out of line if your DD decides she doesn’t want to do it, although, unlike an ADR, if you don’t get the makeover, they really can’t charge you, can they?
    Finally, anytime before you’re appointment is acceptable and they will let you in. You just might not get started any earlier.

    You have to put a card like you do when you makea n ADR and it has the same policy as an ADR. No show is a $10 fee and needs to be canceled 24 hrs before

    I know. I'm ok losing the $10 if she decides she doesn't want to do it, and then at least we're already in the park a little early.

    They do charge your card $10 if you don't show, you need to give a card at time of booking. And I'm not sure what time they would let me into the park. Our appointment is at 8:40 and then park doesn't open until 9am, so I need to show up to the MK around 8:15?

    It may be like an ADR, if you show and explain the situation they may wave the fee. That being said, let her watch some youtube videos of what they will do. My daughter is signed up to BBB at Disney Springs and I've been having her watch youtube videos to be prepared, especially because she doesn't like her hair brushed/combed. Shes excited to get glitter in her hair though and get pretty.

    As far as getting in line, I suspect you will be held at the rope with the CRT people and any other people who are in the park early (except the BOG people) until after the welcome show. You will be closer to Fantasyland than those coming from the front of the castle, but they won't let you get in line at a specific ride, unless procedures have changed.

    If your DD decides to get her hair done, I'm pretty sure you're going to miss the opening show. So something to keep in mind if seeing that is important to you. The appt can take 30 + minutes.

    That's not a big deal to us. We go to WDW every year and just saw the opening show in March.
