Your teenage daughter has told you that the only thing she wants to do on your Walt Disney World vacation is visit the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. You call to make the appointment and find out that the salon only allows guests who are between the ages of 3-12. Or there may be a time when you attempt to make a reservation during a busy day and they are completely booked. Never fear! There are some alternatives that could help prevent those Bibbidi Bobbidi Blues!
What about some glitz and glitter…
The Harmony Barber Shop located on Main Street, U.S.A. offers hair-cutting and glitter hairstyling that is super fun and inexpensive. Hairstyling with glitter and confetti gel is only $5! If you wish to add a haircut, the additional cost for ages up to 12 years is $15.00 and $19.00 for guests 13 years old and up. Although the results will not be exactly like the Bibbidi Bobbidi styles; cute looks including ponytails can be requested. You can even bring your own tiara to add to the style as you leave the shop. If you wish to bring one along, tiaras similar to the ones used at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique can be found on the Disney Store website. Walk-ins to the shop are welcome; however reservations are recommended. Make your reservations by calling (407) 939-7529.
If polished princess is what you are after…
Consider booking a special occasion style at Mandara Spa at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort. The spa offers updo hairstyles starting at $75 and up depending on the length of hair and look requested. This is a great option for teens or even a Sweet 16 surprise! Add on a manicure or an additional spa service for a truly memorable day. Remember to bring your own tiara and dress to complete the magical makeover. Contact the spa at (407) 934-4772 to discuss styling options and to get pricing details.
How about a pirate empress…
Set sail for The Pirates League at the Magic Kingdom. Guests 3 years of age and older are transformed into their choice of a first mate, empress or mermaid and enjoy some pampering by Captain Jack’s crew. Guests receiving makeovers are welcome to join the Adventureland Pirate Parade. The cost of this experience starts at $29.95 and goes up to $74.95, depending on the package you select. Please note that guests under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Call (407) 939-2739 to make your reservations.
Speaking of adults…
All three of these options work perfectly for adults who want a royal look for the day. If you have a special evening planned, or you simply want a fun hairstyle for your photo ops in the parks, leave it to the Disney stylists to make all of your wishes come true.
