    My step-daughter is eight. She is rather tall and weighs 82 pounds. I would like to take her to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique but would prefer to buy the dress in advance to make sure it fits. Where can I purchase an Ariel dress in size 12? And shoes -

    Hi Jessica, 

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  I'm absolutely positive your step-daughter will have a Magical time at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.  Planning ahead to make sure she will have a costume that fits properly is a great idea, this way she will be able to wear her princess dress for an extended period of time and will not be left without a costume.  

    Costumes at the Disney Store generally fit up to size ten, but in my experience, they run a little large.  I would start by taking your step-daughter to the Disney Store and try on an Ariel Costume just to make sure it is not an option.  Your next option would be to look online at sites like Costume Express or Amazon and search for teen or adult costumes.  These costumes are often Disney Authorized and may be the best choice for your step-daughter.  My final suggestion would be to order a cute Ariel T-Shirt from the Disney Store and then pair it with a tutu or petty skirt in Ariel colours.  Tutus and petty skirts are a staple in my daughter's Disney wardrobe!

    I hope my answer helps Jessica.  If you have any other questions, please let me know.  I would be happy to help!
