    Hi. What is the Royal Court Royal Tea like (we're taking the Wonder to Alaska at end of May). Would two five-year-old girls like it? If you had to choose between the Tea and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, which would you choose? Thanks!

    Welcome aboard, Amanda! Oh, the Royal Court Royal Tea is truly a special experience for moms and daughters! Your young princesses would love every single moment of this magical tea party where they will be made to feel like royalty from the moment their arrival is announced and they enter the grand room! It's really something they'll remember forever, so I highly encourage you to book this if possible!

    The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is also an amazing experience where young girls can be magically transformed into their favorite Disney princesses by the fabulous Fairy Godmothers-in-Training! My daughter loved her two princess makeovers there, and I wouldn't trade those memories for anything!

    However, I understand that the costs can certainly add up, so if you're trying to decide between the two experiences, I would probably choose the Royal Court Royal Tea over Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Why? Well, you could still provide your little princesses with a special princess makeover in your stateroom to get ready for the tea! Why not secretly purchase new Disney princess dresses from the Disney Store back home or online and hide them in the suitcase before you sail. Then, present them to the girls that day onboard! You can bring some shimmery makeup and nail polish and do their hair in a special way and then head off to the tea! They'll feel very special about their makeover, and will then get to experience so much magic as they enjoy the tea, interacting with Cinderella and her friends, and receiving some really nice gifts! It's the best of both worlds!

    Have fun as you finalize the plans for your Alaskan sailing, Amanda! You're all in for such a magical and memorable cruise!
