Misadventures Of An Average Mom

Because Average is the New Awesome!

DISNEYLAND: part 3- Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique!

on July 17, 2014

Lilly is 6.5 years old going on 15. It is because of this that I wanted to really do the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique because she still enjoys the whole princess thing a lot right now. When we got back to the park from breakfast we had around 2.5 hours to burn because I wanted to leave enough time to not only get to the appointment but also to change into the Elsa dress I made for her. I spent plenty of money on the fabric for that dress (not to mention the blood sweat and tears!) but I wasn’t about to pay $65 for one of their dresses.

When we first got to Toon Town they had lots of cute card you could sit in so we did that and then Goofy was right across the street at his house so we went to get his autograph and picture. This was the only photopass person that could have had a little more experience with the while idea of taking pictures. Edison’s head just barely makes it in the photo. At least he looks pleasant I guess. The kids decided that even though they had just met Mickey and Minnie they wanted to see their houses. First we went on the Gadget Go Coaster because both of the kids met the height requirement (35″). I turned around at one point and saw that Edison was all laughs and loving the little roller coaster. Lilly had a great time too. Then we got off the ride. Lilly started crying because she bumped her head during one of the jerkier parts and either Edison pushed into the safety bar or he was unprepared to process the stomach tickling sensation because he just started clenching his stomach and crying. It was pretty clear that at 10:30am roller coasters were out for the day.

Mickey and Minnie’s house were fun enough. We though it was odd that Mickey had such a shorter wait than Minnie… until we got to finally meet Minnie. My goodness she was taking forever with some kids. I honestly don’t mind a lot, but as a parent you should reel your kid in and realize there are plenty of other children waiting that want to meet the mouse!  I did get a SUPER cute picture of Edison giving Minnie a kiss, so at least there is that. Edison perked up a bit, he had been crying and whining about his stomach since getting off of the coaster, and was happy to run around the rest of toon town looking at the fun quirky fixtures.

At noon it was finally time to get Lilly all done up. We changed in the bathroom after a little frustration. She didn’t want to wear the dress. WHAT!!?!?!? Honestly, I drafted the darn thing from scratch because at the time there was no pattern available for it! I convinced her this was the option and she grudgingly accepted her fate. It didn’t take too long to get over it once she was called up by her fairy God Mother- in training to choose her hair style.

I just cannot say enough praises about the whole experience. Not only did they treat Lilly like she was the only princess in that busy tiny little boutique, but as her family we were her royal court and therefore treated with the same care and attention. We had our own bench to sit and wait and when someone else sat on it since I was standing to take a picture Lilly’s Fairy God Mother quickly told him he was not to sit there as it was for Lilly’s court. They were also amazing with Edison. They distracted him by playing and reading stories to him and just not minding when he was antsy and not sitting still. SO happy.

Included in her princess package (the cheapest- Coach- package for $55) was: choice of hair style, tiara, princess sash, princess cinch sack, makeup (she got to keep the little pallet used), face gem (she got to keep the sheet that had the other 6 gem designs), pink rhinestone Mickey hair clip, and the combs used to do her hair. Also, don’t forget, the royal treatment. It was AMAZING. I couldn’t be happier with that choice and Lilly was able to get 3 days out of that hairstyle because of how much hairspray was used! Oh yes, and I did have to utilize a lot of restraint from buying the green ball gown Anna wears in Frozen. I love that dress!

Okay, Disney is probably getting boring at this point but only two more posts on it, I promise!  Next up The Princesses and the Park. Then fireworks and our Disney Wrap up! Thanks for bearing with me through all my wordy over-excited Disney posts!
