    We have a reservation at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique on my daughter's 5th birthday for the Castle Package. My question is, how long should we set aside for this? Thank you!!!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jessica! Some of my favorite Disney memories are of my daughter having magical makeovers at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique! Five is such a special age for little girls, so this is going to be the most wonderful birthday experience for your daughter!

    From the moment she sets foot in the boutique, she'll be treated like royalty by the fabulous Fairy Godmothers-in-Training who will pamper her and transform her into her favorite Disney princess. I just remember that special moment at the end when they turned my daughter's chair around to reveal to her her new look for the very first time in the mirror. Her smile told it all! The rest of the day, she walked so proudly and properly around the park, feeling like the princess that she was! I just can't wait for your daughter to have this experience too!

    You can expect about a half an hour for the hairstyle, another ten minutes for the nails, and time to change into her new princess gown and for photos. Typically, the makeovers take 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the package chosen, but I'd budget just over an hour or so for this makeover, since your daughter is opting for the Castle Package. Perhaps add more time in there just in case because you don't want to rush this experience for your daughter, and sometimes those downtime moments can be just as magical and memorable! If you're scheduling a dining reservation nearby (perhaps a meal with the princesses at Cinderella's Royal Table) in the park after the makeover, I'd opt for two hours after the boutique reservation to allow enough time for the makeover, photos, and to make your way to the restaurant without feeling rushed.

    I hope your daughter has the most magical birthday imaginable, Jessica!
