    Hi! What is the difference between the BBB at the Magic Kingdom vs. Downtown Disney? Is one location better than the other? Thanks for the input!

    Hi Angela,

    The services at the two BBB locations are the same. Both offer a menu of magical makeovers for girls ages 3-12. Both have an array of costumes available and nearby photo shoot locations. 

    The Downtown Disney location is a bit larger, with more room for family members to sit and observe the proceedings. I find it to be slightly more comfortable than the Magic Kingdom shop. One possibly significant advantage of the Downtown Disney location is that there is no park ticket required to go here. If you just want a makeover, then this can be a huge savings. 

    But many guests prefer the Magic Kingdom location simply because it is in the Magic Kingdom. Folks often arrange to go directly from the MK BBB to a meal at Cinderella's Royal Table. This give the maximum opportunity for fresh-looking photos. 

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have additional questions.
