    We are visiting WDW in April to celebrate my daughter's Sweet 16. Are there any BBB type experiences (minus the princess costumes) for her age? She would like to be glammed up for the day, but not covered in glitter and in a costume.

    Hi, Stephanie! 

    Your question has me reminiscing about my daughter's sweet sixteen at the Walt Disney World Resort. We had the most magical week celebrating this special milestone, and it is something she will never forget! I know you are looking forward to the same experience this April. 

    I'm so glad you reached out with this question because I have the perfect idea on how to make your daughter look and feel like Disney royalty for her momentous occasion. The salons at the Deluxe Resort hotels and the La Vida Salon at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort offer majestic makeovers for Guests of all ages. There are three options for the "Character Couture Package:" Storybook Style (hairstyle only), Magical Makeover (hairstyle and makeup) or the Timeless Transformation (hairstyle, makeup, and nails). What makes this experience so unique is that they are character inspired, so your daughter can select which classic character she'd like to be transformed into for her big day. You can make an appointment by calling 407-939-7727 to speak with a Cast Member. 

    Stephanie, I have a few other ideas on how to make your daughter's sweet sixteen memorable. We kicked off our week with a fabulous afternoon at the Garden View Tea Room at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, which was a first for us! The atmosphere, small bites, and beverages were all delightful. On the day we visited Magic Kingdom we stopped by the Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe and picked up a free birthday button. For a nominal fee, they will personalize the button in a beautiful font. My daughter wore her button proudly, and it's one of her favorite souvenirs from the trip. We ended our vacation with a tour which was another first for us! We selected the Walt Disney: Marceline to Magic Kingdom Tour that included a behind the scenes look at one of my daughter's favorite attractions. It was a fantastic ending to our weeklong celebration. 

    Best of luck planning your daughter's sweet sixteen, Stephanie! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
