    My daughter is 2 1/2 right now, she will be 3 in December and our Disney World trip is in October. I want to make her experience super special with a trip to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Are there any exceptions to the age requirement?

    Hi, Candace!  The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique seems to be a rite of passage for so many moms and daughters, myself included.  I took all three of my girls for princess makeovers and photo shoots, and we all have so many amazing memories of the experience.

    Unfortunately, they do not make exceptions to the minimum age rule.  I have a great friend in the same boat, coming with a tiny princess who just misses being three when they are here for their trip.  What I suggested to her, if you wanted to do a princess makeover just for photos or a dining experience, is to pick up a dress and accessories from one of the many shops at Walt Disney World that carry princess attire, and do a mini-makeover yourself so you get your baby girl getting her princess jam on.  

    Another thing you might want to do is to visit the Harmony Barbershop on Main Street, USA at the Magic Kingdom.  They'll do a quick hair-do, including a liberal dusting of pixie dust.  If she hasn't had her first haircut yet, they even do a special first haircut experience you may want to look into.  There is no age minimum for that one.  You can make reservations for the Harmony Barber Shop by calling 407-939-7529.

    I hope you are able to do something special for your little princess on your upcoming vacation!
