    The calendar for bibbidi bobbidi boutique isn’t being updated for December. I’ve been following for a few weeks now and need a reservation for December 6th. It’s two days away and don’t want to miss it. We are going for my granddaughters 5th birthday.

    Hi Stacy! Welcome back to planDisney. We are so happy to see Guests return to our little corner of the magic. A holiday trip to the Happiest Place on Earth is such a festive way to ring in the season! You are going to love catching A Christmas Fantasy Parade stroll down Main Street, U.S.A. and tasting your way through celebrations around the world at Disney Festival of Holidays!

    Before we get to all this holly jolly, I see that you are looking to book a royal transformation for a few lucky princesses and knights at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. I took a look at the calendar as well and you are correct, December has not opened up even though we are within the traditional 60-day window for booking Enchanted Extras. Reservations can open up as early as 60 days ahead but, occasionally, Fairy Godmother's Apprentices need a few extra magical minutes (or days) to complete their royal training. My best advice here is to set an alert for yourself and continue to check daily. At some point, that calendar will open up! I know that was not the glass slipper you were hoping for in terms of advice, but the good news is that everyone is in the same boat so no one is grabbing appointments out from under you. These appointments can go quickly, so I suggest holding on to some faith, trust, and pixie-dusted patience and be ready to go when that calendar does open up!

    I'm going to wish upon a star that you are able to secure those reservations, Stacy. As you are all getting excited about this royal experience, I like to recommend taking a peek at the packages offered ahead of time as there are quite a few to fit every style and budget. I have to say that my daughter has been twice and each time has felt every bit the princess whether we went for the full Castle Package or we brought our dress from home and opted for something simpler like The Carriage Package. This is also a great time to get them to start daydreaming about what their royal transformation will look like! Will she be the Belle of the ball or be diving under the sea with Ariel or maybe she likes warm hugs from Olaf and Elsa has her heart?! 

    Once the transformation is complete, I like to recommend heading to the front of Sleeping Beauty Castle and capturing a photo with a Disney PhotoPass photographer. If you have upgraded your tickets to include Genie+, you will have access to unlimited digital downloads of every photo taken that day. There's no better way to remember the magic!

    Stacy, I sure hope this was helpful in your planning. I'm going to wave my magic wand and hope that the calendar opens up for you very soon. If you have any more questions, you know where to find us here at planDisney!

    Never stop dreaming,
