    We will be attending WDW in September with our 2 daughter's, I am unsure if we should purchase our princess dresses before we get there or should we wait and buy them there? Thanks.

    Hi, Keely!  You will certainly find Princess dresses available when you arrive!  There are always dresses to be found at many of the gift shops as you wander Walt Disney World.  

    The only thing I would caution you about is particular selection.  If your daughters have a must have princess they want to be, and it's not one of the more popular options, you may have to look a little harder.  Also, I have a 12 year old who is as tall as me and has been wearing adult sized clothing since she was 9, so if you have a kid that's not typical kid size, you'll have a harder time finding a princess dress.  

    So, bottom line is that it will make packing to go easier if you buy there, but if you're looking for one of the more unusual princess characters or an odd size, buy online.

    Have fun!
