Instead of Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique...

Thanks to Mike from My Dreams of Disney for the image
The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique allows little girls to be transformed into princesses and is priced between $54.95 and $189.95.  (If you have a son who wants to be a knight, it only costs $15.95 at BBB!) 
If you can't make reservations at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique or can't afford it, there are other options at Walt Disney World for your child to be "fixed up!"

Instead of Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, head to the Harmony Barber Shop or The Pirates League in the Magic Kingdom.  Harmony Barber shop is a quaint barbershop on Main Street where your child can get colored hair gel or painted designs in their 'do.  In the past, you could get Mickey shaped confetti too.  The hair gel is $5, and haircuts are $15-$19.  The Pirates League is for all ages to be transformed into a pirate, mermaid or Jake (from Jake and the Neverland Pirates).  This is priced between $29.95 and $74.95. 

Another option is to do it yourself! :)  My friend Beth at Pursuing the Magic shares ways her family is able to bring the magic to her girls without spending all the money on a makeover.  Check out her tips for making your daughter feel like a princess!

  1. Thanks for the shout out, Beth! It is quite nice having our own fairy godmother in our travel party! ;-) Plus, it allows my girls to choose their own style.

    We sold our daughter on Face Painting last trip. She LOVED it and we told her the price difference, she is 6. She doesn't like having her hair up or fooled with so no way I wanted to spend the $ on BBB. I would like to try the mermaid makeup at Pirates though....but our Princess LOVED her Unicorn face paint and bonus, they touch it up for free if you go back.
