    Which is better for a 5 year old girl Bibbidi Boppidi Boutique or The Mermaid Package?

    Hi, Megan!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    My then 5 and 6-year-olds just LOVED The Pirates League, they both decided on The Empress Package, to my surprise. I also had to decide between this and Princess makeovers with Fairy Godmothers-In-Training at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. What we did was looked up photos online and showed the girls and simply asked them what their preference was. If you are making the experience a surprise, that won’t be an option, but you can still surf the Web for examples of each and make your decision based on that. What was unexpected during our Walt Disney World Resort Vacation was all of the attention from Disney Characters after our girls had become Pirate Princesses! Captain Hook even snuck in a quick kiss of my daughter’s hand when he happened to be walking by us! If you want to save a few dollars, remember that you can always bring a costume and accessories from home! Also, you can make your reservation up to 180 days in advance by calling Disney Reservations.

    Have a magical vacation!
