    We have a 13th birthday while we're at DW. Will she "count as 12" for the whole trip? Specifically, can she do Bibbidy Bobbidy Boutique on her birthday, or should we plan all "12 and under" events for before her birthday?

    Hello Noah!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I have my little girl booked for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Magic Kingdom on the night we are participating in Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. The Disney Princess that she is choosing to dress-up as for the festivities: Stitch!

    When we went on a Walt Disney World Resort Vacation a couple of years ago, my daughter had not yet turned 4. We were told when we called to book Reservations by calling (407)939-7895 that she would not be allowed to book an appointment until her 4th birthday.

    Upon speaking with a Cast Member, I was informed that Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique also does not allow appointments for anyone on or after their 13th birthday. I recommend that you plan your Magical Makeover and all "12 and under" activities with your daughter for before her actual birthday.

    You could plan a more "grown-up" experience for her actual 13th birthday that bookends the Walt Disney World Resort activities she has grown to old for with all of the new activities that turning 13 has opened.  The Epcot Seas Adventures – Dolphins in Depth Encounter is only available to Guests 13 years of age and older, for instance.

    How Endlessly Magical would it be to celebrate your daughter's milestone birthday by finishing one Event for the final time with an opportunity to experience one for the first?

    Happy Celebrating!
