    This is my first Disney cruise and it says that I am unable to book any plans until August 3rd. When my booking window opens, are there guaranteed spots for the bippidi boppidi boutique that I can book? It would seem unfair otherwise. Please let me know.

    Hi Alice,

    Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad you sailed by with your question and I'm thrilled that you are embarking on your first Disney Cruise Line vacation! 

    You are wise to mark your calendar for the date your booking window opens. Remember, your cruise must be paid in full to book activities. Certain activities do fill quickly, and there is no guarantee that reservations for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique will be available when your window opens, unfortunately. Now, while I'm not the Fairy Godmother, she has passed along some tips that I would love to share with you:

    • The booking window opens at midnight Eastern Standard Time. Be ready to stay up late and don't turn into a pumpkin when the clock strikes 12 so you will be ready to book.
    • Be flexible with the date and time you choose to book so you can select any dates/times that are available. Hopefully, the glass slipper will fit if there is an appointment available.
    • If an appointment isn't available on your booking day, keep checking online. You never know when another royal Guest will need to change their plans.
    • Once onboard the ship, stop by Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique (Deck 10, Forward), to inquire about any availability. They may be able to add you to a waitlist. While there is no guarantee, even Cinderella was invited to the ball!

    Alice, your cruise is going to be amazing! You will be on a Halloween on the High Seas sailing full of spooky good fun for everyone onboard. Plus, your little one can always dress up as their favorite swashbuckling princess or pirate and celebrate Pirate Night in style. And don't forget, your cruise will be stopping at the exciting new Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point! This newest Disney tropical paradise is sure to grant you and your family a shimmering day.

    I hope these tips will bring a little magic to your cruise, Alice. Please let us know if you have other questions as you plan.

    Wishing you memories to cherish,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
