    Hi the panel. Will be traveling to disney the week of dec 17-22. Lg group, including my 5yo daughter, 8 yo neice, my 70 y0 grandmother. Want to do BBB with the girls. WE fly out on the 22 at 245, ? enough time that am or should we go another day

    Hi, Amanda!  If you are taking Disney's Magical Express back to the airport, plan on meeting the coach about three hours prior to your flight.  Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique takes about 45 minutes, so if both girls go together, you are looking at having to make sure they are in the chairs by no later than 11 - before you add travel time back and forth from the resort to the boutique.

    I would say if you can get an early morning appointment, and you do it at the Downtown Disney location, you might be able to make it.  I would say anything later than a 9:30 appointment is going to be pushing it just a bit. 

    It is a nice way to end a trip, though!  If you think you can pull it off time-wise, it's a great final souvenir, and if the kids are going back to school the next day, the hair usually stays fairly good in place through one sleep, so it's kind of cool for the girls to go back and show their friends. 

    Just remember to get the earliest appointment you can.  That will help take some of the stress out of the time crunch!
