    How much time is needed for 'the works' package at BBB (this includes hair, make-up, nails and photo session)? We have a 2:50 appointment and a 5:00 ADR at 1900 PF. Thanks

    Hi, Stacey! Sounds like a fun day you've got planned for your little princess! For the BBB Castle Package, you can usually plan for approximately 1.5-2 hours for the entire session including hair, nails, make-up, costume and photos. I would recommend that you check in for your 2:50 p.m. appointment no later than 2:35 p.m. knowing that you may be seen right away or perhaps you may have to wait for a while for the next available stylist.

    Whether your BBB appointment is at Cinderella Castle or Downtown Disney, you're going to be pushing it trying to get to the GF before 5 p.m. My suggestion to you is to either request a later dinner at 1900 Park Fare or to book either the Coach or Crown Package which take approximately 30 minutes each. If you're going to spend the money on the Castle Package, you certainly don't want to rush her through the experience and risk the stress of looking at your watch the entire time.

    Another suggestion to save on time and money is to order her costume online from the Disney Store and have it shipped to your Disney resort before you arrive. She can have her hair and nails done in her costume and then take some beautiful photos (at a leisurely pace) on the grounds of the Grand Floridian before your Happily Ever After Dinner with Cinderella starts at 5 p.m. You can take the photos or you can even schedule a Photopass Photographer for a private photo session at the GF at 407-934-4004.

    Have a wonderful day and a most magical vacation!
