    My daughter is 12 and I was wondering if there is some type of activity that she can do that’s spa related. I feel like she to old to do the bipity bopity boutique, and to young to do the chill spa!

    Hi Siena!

    Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo! So happy that you have reached out to all of us at planDisney as you get ready for your Disney cruise, the grand ball of all vacations. Disney Cruise Line has something for everyone, but I’d say that they do an exceptional job with offerings for teens and tweens. So both you and you daughter have quite the adventure at sea ahead. 

    Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is the quintessential experience for kids wanting to get the VIP treatment. Whether transforming kids into princesses or pirates, the Fairy Godmothers in Training will delight with their pixie dusted powers. 

    When my daughter became a tween, she claimed that she had “outgrown” the boutique, and I nearly cried! It felt like such a rite of passage moment, and I wanted to fill it with another special experience to fill that void. So I like how you are thinking in wanting the same for your daughter. Great moms think alike!

    No doubt that you know your child best, so if you believe that she’s graduated from the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, then trust that decision. Unfortunately, at 12, she isn’t quite old enough to be able to do the Chill Spa, which is specifically for teens ages 13-17. However, this does give her something to look forward to on her next cruise!

    As a tween, she does have so many things that are geared to kids her age that you may have trouble getting her to leave the Youth Clubs! At 12 years old, she has the distinct advantage of being able to visit both the Oceaneer Club, Oceaneer Lab, and Edge. My guess is that Edge will tickle her fancy most because it’s tailor made for youth ages 11-14. My kids loved Edge but for different reasons: my daughter liked the games and meeting new people while my son preferred playing video games. 

    No matter which activities and entertainment you and your daughter choose, I hope that the glass slipper fits. Like the song from Cinderella says, “If you keep on believing...the dream that you wish will come true.”

    Happy Sailing!
