    How long are the dresses at Bibbidi Bobbidi boutique? My 3yr old has a long torso and is a bit bigger, so measurement/weight wise would fit into a 7/8, but she's only 39 inches tall. Are these dresses going to be too long for her?

    Greetings and welcome to planDisney, Elizabeth!

    Thank you for taking the time to send your question our way. It is a pleasure to help you plan pixie-dusted memories for your princess at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique has a special place in my heart because it has always been my oldest daughter’s favorite Enchanting Extras Collection experience at the Walt Disney World Resort. She is now over the age limit to have her own royal makeover, but she cannot wait to accompany her little sister during her first appointment with the magnificent Fairy Godmother’s Apprentices next summer.

    My answer is based on my personal experience at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and considering the Disney Princess costumes I have already purchased at the theme parks and Disney Springs for my daughters. Although I do not have the exact measurements, I have noticed that the length of the gowns can vary depending on style and size. When my oldest was 5 years old, she chose Anna’s costume, and I thought it was excellent because it seemed a bit shorter than some of the other options. That was perfect for a day at Magic Kingdom because I did not have to worry about her tripping over the dress as she walked around the park.

    My youngest princess is tall for her age and has a long torso, just like your daughter. I usually purchase costumes one or two sizes larger than the size she wears, but it all depends on the style. When she was 3, I bought a beautiful size 4 Elsa gown at World of Disney at Disney Springs. While the gown wasn’t too long for her, I noticed the sleeves were a little longer than expected. Gowns and costume sizes typically range from 3T to 16. A size 4T, 4/5, usually fits a child who is around 39-45 inches tall and weighs approximately 32-41 pounds, so maybe this size or a size 6 may be good options for her. A size 7/8 usually fits kids who are 48-53 inches tall and weigh 50-68 pounds, so this size will probably be too large for her. The nice thing is that there are so many different styles and sizes to choose from, so I believe you will find something she likes and feels comfortable in. Please note that costume selection and sizing may vary and are subject to availability. 

    If you are worried about your princess finding the perfect gown, you are welcome to bring a costume from home. I think purchasing a dress in advance online is a great idea to ensure she can have a magical experience at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. I recommend visiting to check out available styles. If you find the perfect gown, you can bring it with you, and your princess can change into it in one of the dressing rooms at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique before her appointment.

    I hope this information helps you plan an unforgettable experience for your daughter, Elizabeth. Do not hesitate to stop by if you have additional questions. We will be delighted to continue to help you plan a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Best Disney wishes,
