    My DD's wanted to do the BBB and then eat in the castle. We were hoping for a breakfast or lunch reservation but worried about our swim/nap break and investing that much just to sleep and swim after. Would you suggest dinner instead/or no break?


    Having three daughters (1, 3, 5), we make regular visits to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.  I prefer to have an appointment early in the day, so that the girls can show off their 'dos in the park all day.  If you are combining this with a castle meal, I would especially recommend breakfast or lunch, as dinner does not have the characters coming around to visit each table.

    When we visit the BBB we usually go in the morning and have a special lunch in the castle or dinner with Cinderella at 1900 Park Fare (Grand Floridian).  That way the girls have a full day in the Magic Kingdom to enjoy their glitter and glamour.

    However, all that said, we do not return to our resort for daily naps/swimming.  I would probably skip the nap, but I know that my kids can do that with minimal impact,  If your daughters really need a nap, then definitely don't skip it,  You'll all be miserable.  If the nap is a necessity then I would schedule an early evening appointment at the BBB and have dinner after that.  Your daughters will very likely be able to sleep in their hairdos and wear it again the next day.  It's not quite the same, but definitely do-able.  (My daughters always leave it in for a second day)

    Have fun!
