Child at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

    Michelle from NY Asked

    I have a BBB appt @ 9am in Disney Springs. What’s the closest Salon to get the Character Couture package for my older daughter and what time do you recommend? I want to make sure they both get to enjoy their experience and get the most out of the day. Thx!

    Greetings Michelle and welcome back to the Royal Kingdom of the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and a Character Couture makeover are delightful choices for your Princesses! My Brave Girl and her Enchanted Cousin had the most splendiferous time at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique last summer. It took a little under an hour for the fairy godmothers-in-training to transform the two of them from summer clothes to Royal Court Ready. My daughter chose to turn into her favorite Princess Merida, and her cousin was a practically perfect Cinderella.

    Even though fairy godmothers are magically efficient with their time, I would suggest giving your baby girl at least an hour and a half for her transformation. Factoring in transportation time, I would make sure your eldest's Royal appointment is no earlier than 11:00 am.

    Four salons across Walt Disney World Resort offer Character Couture Makeovers:

    Ship Shape Massage Salon in Disney's Yacht Club Resort
    Ivy Trellis Salon at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
    La Vida Salon in Disney's Coronado Springs Resort
    Salon by the Springs at Disney's Wilderness Lodge

    I did a quick route search, and Ship Shape Salon is the closest to Disney Springs, followed closely by La Vida Health Club (when I put in fastest route, they were separated by two minutes via car). If you use the complimentary bus transportation, make sure to have at least an hour travel time. If I were you though, I would hail a Minnie Van! The polka-dotted beauties are available to transport you anywhere across the property with a touch of a button via the Lyft app. The service is from 6:30 am to 12:30 am and if you either of your Princesses need an extra boost inside their chariot, up to three complimentary car seats are available. A delightful Cast Member will pick you up at Disney Springs and whisk you to your next transformation faster than you can say "Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo!"

    Michelle, I hope your girls delight in their Regal Makeovers! If you have any additional questions, your wish is our command.
