    Do you recommend The Pirates League or Bippity Boppity Boutique for an 8 year old who likes Princess Ariel?

    Hello Jennifer,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Both Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and The Pirates League are truly magical experiences, but they offer completely different "pixie-dusted" makeovers. 

    If your daughter is more interested in being part of Ariel's Princess  world, then I recommend Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. You may choose Ariel's royal gown (or bring your own), and Her Fairy Godmother-in-training will transform her into Princess Ariel complete with hairstyle, makeup, and accessories. The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is one of my favorites; there's nothing quite like seeing your little girl turned into a fairytale Princess! One of my most treasured memories is seeing the look of joy my daughters faces when they saw themselves for the first time after their makeover; it's truly an enchanting moment!

    If your daughter prefers Ariel as a Mermaid (with gizmos and gadgets aplenty), then I suggest The Pirates League. She'll get a Mermaid hairstyle and makeup along with a necklace, nail polish, and sash. She'll also get to participate in the Adventureland Pirate Parade. It will definitely be "fin flippin'" fun! 

    Please stop back by if you have any additional vacation planning questions!

    Magical Wishes,
