Bibbidi! Bobbidi! BOO! The return of this magical experience that transforms little boys and girls into dashing heroes and charming princesses has finally been announced!
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is Disney’s own boutique for guests ages 3 to 12 years old. “Magical Makeovers” are provided by Fairy Godmothers-in-Training who turn guests into royal princesses or gallant knights. There are two Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutiques in Disney World, located in Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, but they have remained closed since the pandemic closures, and we’ve been anxiously awaiting the moment when they reopened their doors. Now, we know when these spots will reopen!
Due to health and safety concerns, this high-touch, high-contact activity was put on hold for a long while. And for those young little heroines itching to show off their inner princess, the options were limited. But now the Fairy Godmothers-in-Training have announced that Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique will reopen sometime this year and start welcoming back young patrons for a healthy dose of pixie dust.
The boutique will also be reopening at Disneyland Resort! We don’t have a specific timeline yet, but we know it’ll be sometime in 2022.
Before the boutiques closed, families had multiple packages to choose from to find that glass-slipper perfect fit for their young one. Although Disney hasn’t announced yet which packages will return when the boutiques reopen, here’s a re-cap of what was available before:
- Crown Package
- Carriage Package
- Courtyard Package
- Castle Package
- Deluxe Castle Package

The Crown Package started at $74.95 (plus tax) and included hairstyling, shimmering makeup and face gem, princess sash and cinch sack, and nail polish. The Carriage Package started at $99.95 (plus tax)and included everything in the Crown Package plus a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique t-shirt. The Courtyard Package started at $149.95 (plus tax) and included everything in the Carriage package plus a “trendy tutu.” The Castle Package started at $199.95 (plus tax) and included everything in the Crown Package plus a Disney Princess dress of choice and coordinating accessories (shoes not included).

Any option could be enhanced with separate purchase add-ons like shoes, wands, crowns, and more! Reservations are required for this experience and can be made through the Disney World website or by calling (407) 939-1929. Remember, even magic takes a little time, so plan for your little one’s transformation to take about an hour. And if you’re booking your experience inside the Magic Kingdom, you will need valid park tickets and park pass reservations, as well.
We’re so glad to see even more magic return to the Parks! Stay tuned to DFB as we continue to keep you informed on all of the Disney news.
