    We are sailing feb 11 on the dream. I want girls (age 3 and 6) to have makeovers at BBB and then dinner and a show. Is that too much in one evening ?

    Ahoy there, Bianca! Thanks for sailing my way here at planDisney. I'm so excited you and your crew will be embarking on an adventure on the Disney Dream next month!

    I have a soft spot for the Disney Dream and the shorter itineraries she sails, they're the perfect getaway any time of the year, and a great way to build toward Platinum Castaway Club status! 

    Wow! 3- and 6-year-old girls, how precious! I can only imagine the looks on their faces when you tell them they'll be meeting their Fairy Godmothers at Bibbity Bobbity Boutique! It's an incredibly special experience I'm sure they'll never forget. Be sure to check out the latest "On the Ship: Know Before You Go" information to stay aware of current changes to onboard experiences - I know the makeup palette is currently offered as a takeaway instead of being applied as part of makeover experiences that normally include it as part of the package.

    But onward to the royal itinerary!

    Without knowing the princesses personally and what their royal routines are when not sailing around the world in the utmost of luxury, it would be difficult to say whether their makeovers, dinner and the show would be "too much." However, there's a few things that may help you make the decision to make the experience part of a marathon of royal appearances, or one that's more of a gentle carriage ride through their kingdom.

    First, I would suggest checking what appointment times are currently available at Bibbity Bobbity Boutique in the "Onboard Fun" area of the My Activities section of your reservation. This should give you a better idea of how long you believe your princesses would be able to hold court, so to speak, before needing their beauty sleep.

    Second, I'd double-check which seating you have for dinner! If your princesses are likely to make it through dinner cleanly, I'd say you are on your way to a successful evening. As a dad of a little prince, gone are the days of the Second Seating for our own royal family: I don't think he'd be awake - or clean - past the bread service...

    Remember also that there is a brief gap between the end of dinner and the start of the evening's show. This is a great time to check your Disney Cruise Line Navigator app for what family entertainment can help you fill the time. That or I might suggest to sneak back to your stateroom for a quick nap before the show?

    If that all seems like a bit much for her royal highnesses, or the timing just doesn't work with available times, you may want to consider pairing their makeovers with Royal Court Royal Tea! What better way to enjoy time with their fellow Disney Princesses than at a tea party?

    No matter what you choose, I know the experience will be a memorable one. The best part? This fairy tale doesn't have to end at midnight since you're on an incredible Disney Cruise Line vacation! My best wishes as your princesses take their thrones!

    Have a magical vacation, Bianca, and if you have any additional questions as your cruise gets closer, please drop us a line here at planDisney! 

    In service to Her Royal Highnesses,
