Disneyland - Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique
« on: October 23, 2018, 02:12 PM »
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique



The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique opened in the Fantasyland courtyard in 2009, replacing the Tinker Belle Toy Shoppe.



The entrance to the shop and salon is beneath this fanciful clock tower.






This is not exactly the easiest clock to read. ;)



Inside the Enchanted Chamber is the reservation and check-in desk, which is located next door in the first floor of castle.



Let's enter the Enchanted Chamber, shall we?



The check-in desk.



The small waiting room is decorated with the princess gowns offered for sale in the boutique next door.






Cinderella's gown



Mulan's gown.



Is this Cinderella's corner?



Now lets head back to the boutique.






The entrance to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.



Cinderella, her Fairy Godmother, and pumpkin coach.



The front of the boutique is the shop where princess gowns, jewelry, and accessories are sold.



Princess dresses start at $59.99 for standard gowns up to $350.00 for deluxe gowns.






Tinkerbell wings and other accessories.



The shop also offers Minnie dresses and merchandise.






Royal displays above the merchandise.



Cinderella's mouse friends are on hand to help create her gown.



The three fairies from Sleeping Beauty.



Looking like something out of Snow White, these cute organic chandeliers hang above the shop.



A beautiful stained-glass Fairy Godmother decorates the shop.



Not to be left out, there's prince and knightly get-ups for the boys.



In the back is the salon, where little girls are transformed into princesses. You can choose from a half dozen different packages, ranging from $64.95 for a simple make-up and hairstyle package, to $229.95 for a deluxe makeover, which includes a deluxe gown and coordinating accessories (sold separately). And then there's the $450.00 Signature package which includes the highest quality princess gown, tiara, garment bag, plus the full makeover. The boys get the Knight packages that range from $19.95 to $79.95, which aren't nearly as elaborate as the princes packages. I've yet to see any boys getting the "knightly" treatment.



These wood-carved owl chandeliers hang above the salon.

I'm definitely signin' up for the $450 Signature package. Yup, that's what I'm  gonna do. :P :P :P (That needed tongue emojis.)

It's a beautiful shop/salon, inside and out. But its purpose is a little bewildering. Yeah, I get the princess tiaras, fairy wings, Minnie ears, and all the usual merch; you can find those things in just about every Disney shop. But the expensive gowns and makeovers seem, I dunno, just a tad over-the-top. Then again, the salon looks jam-packed. I can almost here the cash registers kachinging from way up here in the north, 950 miles away. I guess Disney knows what sells.

I was about to say: "I bet you won't find any boys in that boutique." Then you go and show us the 'prince' section of the shop. But then you point out that you've never seen any boys in there, which solidifies my original thought. I bet the Prince section will quietly disappear one of these days. Let us know if you ever see any boys in the shop. They're probably rarer than bigfoot sightings. Keep your camera ready at all times!

So, what time does  that clock say, anyway? I couldn't make sense of it. Maybe that's the point; it doesn't really tell the time.

Oh yes, the shop is very popular. You can find little princesses running around all over Disneyland. I'm still keeping an eye out for little princes, but I've yet to spot one.

Hi Shyguy, wonderful post and love how you can capture the details.
I was wondering if you take requests  :-[
Personally I love snow globes and collect them. Disney Paris has a shop where the snow globes are a big part of it. Does your Disney have some sort of that shop?
It's quite hard to find video's on YouTube on such specific item ^^

Redhair...
I have not come across a single snow globe in any of the shops I've photographed so far. I don't recall seeing any shop that sells then, but I will keep an eye out and I'll get photographs if I do find some.

JB...
On my most recent visit to the park, I actually came across a couple with 2 young children..a boy and a girl. The girl was decked out as a princess and the boy was decked out as a prince. So yes, boys do get the makeover as well.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is a fun concept. Children get to be a prince/princess for the day (or the rest of their trip in some cases). I know during my trip to WDW in May 2017, we took our family friend's daughter who we have known since she was born. She enjoyed being Princess Belle and was really spoiled that day. I love your detailed photo reports and cannot wait for more!
