    I have a DCL trip and was able to secure a 7:30 BBB appt for my 4 year old. However does it make sense as it takes about 2 hours to complete and they will be falling asleep and taking a bath right after that. Does it even make sense to spend the $$$

    Hello again, M! Welcome back to planDisney. 

    I'm happy to see you here and I am more than happy to share my best advice for your situation. My daughter has such fond memories of receiving a magical makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. I definitely think it's worth it if you can find a time that works well for your child. The makeovers at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique generally take 45 minutes in total.

    If you are interested in changing your makeover time, I suggest that you stop by Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique shortly after embarking on the ship. You can check the operating hours in the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app or speak with a Crew Member at the Guest Services Desk to ask what time it will open. Once it opens, there will be Crew Members ready and waiting to assist those who would like to make or change their reservation times once onboard. 

    If you anticipate that your child would like to swim during the day, it may be best to request a makeover in the afternoon. That will allow for some swimming in the morning before getting cleaned up and ready for the makeover. If your little one is excited about proudly displaying their look all day long, the earlier the appointment, the better it will be!

    I highly recommend that you take some time after the makeover for an impromptu photoshoot in fancy spaces aboard the ship. The staircase in the Atrium (or Grand Hall if aboard the Disney Wish) makes for a lovely backdrop! You may also find a favorite Character to meet and take photos with. I cherish the pictures we have taken with my daughter feeling like royalty after a visit to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. 

    If you have more questions, my pals and I are here for you. Please cruise back to us any time. Have a magical sailing! 

    Bon Voyage,
