    I was planning on taking my 8 year old to bippidy boppidy salon, would it be cheesy to ONLY pay for the hair/nails makeup package, then buy a costume on-line or from a store? Is it really worth 200$ for the costume package?

    Hi Jeff,

    Not only is bringing your own princess costume not cheesy, it's quite common, and a great way to save money for other special experiences (character dinners, souvenirs, dinner shows, etc.) at Disney.  Many "princesses-in-training" either come dressed in, or change into their own costumes when they get made over.  As for whether the costumes are "worth" the price, I will say that they are well-made and quite durable as far as children's costumes are concerned.  If you chose to purchase one, your daughter will be able to wear it for Halloween, dress-up parties, etc., and it will wear well.

    Whichever option you chose, I hope your daughter has a magical transformation!
