    What's the best time of day to have my 6 yr old daughter do the BBB experience? Do most girls buy the dresses? I can't imagine she'd wear the dress through the park and on rides! Just want to make it a nice experience for her, but also practical ...

    Hi Diane.  I love the BBB and I personally I like to make our reservations in the evening for the exact reasons you mentioned.  My little one definitely wanted the dress, the hair ... the whole 9 yards but to walk around the park all day with that on was not her idea of fun.  You will see some dressed all day, no matter how hot it is, but I love the evening reservations.  We eat dinner so she is nice and content and then she heads over to the castle for her appointment, or should I say transformation.  There are many, many little girls who bring their own dress, but once they enter the boutique and see the other dresses, I have yet to hear one that did not ask for a new dress.  Not to mention, the presentation of the dress and shoes is truly magical and the look on your daughter's face will be priceless.  I hope this helps and that your 6 year old has the most wonderful experience at the BBB.  Thanks for coming to the Mom's Panel.
