So, you know a little girl who is in training to be a princess…or maybe she is one already! Does she dream of flowing dresses, beautiful castles, tiaras and everything else that comes with being a princess? If so, then read on!
I always loved the Disney princesses, but when the story of Beauty and the Beast came along, my idea of a princess changed. Belle would be like no princess before. Not only was she strong and independent, but she was well-read and smart! If ever there was a princess I wanted to be, it was Belle. It used to be Princess Aurora because I absolutely loved the forest scene with the prince, but once Belle came onto the scene, that was it for me. 🙂 Something about her story resonated with me, it still does. The whole idea that she wanted more, that there was an adventure out “there”. I think that’s part of why I love Walt Disney World so much. I always feel like I’m finding more when I take a venture into the world that Walt created. Walt Disney World itself is a fairytale come to life, one dreamed of through the eyes of Walt Disney.
So, take your daughter’s hand and step into the fairytale world where dreams can come true and your next adventure is awaiting you! And make sure you check out my blog, The Princess Primer to catch you up on all the girls!
What Can a Princess Do at Walt Disney World?
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique– Give your little girl the royal treatment at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Advance reservations are highly recommended. Package prices start at around $50 and can go up to $200+. Please note that if your daughter has skin sensitivities, you may want to skip the gem stick ons!
Harmony Barbershop– Want a less expensive alternative to BBB? Make a hair appointment at the Harmony Barber Shop on Main Street, U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom. This is a MamaMouse must do every trip! My advice is to do what we do. My daughter wears her favorite princess dress (brought from home) to the salon. She gets her hair cut and styled, usually in an updo and complete with pixie dust. Then, we take the short walk up Main Street to a photopass photographer taking pictures in the middle of the street by the bakery. You don’t need to use a PP photographer, but I will tell you, the picture will be AMAZING! Make sure you bring a change of clothes in case your princess wants to change, or head over to the Princess Meet and Greets. She will fit in perfectly! 🙂
Beauty and the Beast Live Stage Show– As I’ve said above, I am a HUGE Belle fan, so this show is a must!
Meet & Greets/Character Meals– Get up close and personal with all your favorite princesses! Go to Princess Meet & Greets for more info! Make sure you have an autograph book handy!
Prince Charming Regal Carrousel– This is another MamaMouse must do!
Mickey’s PhilharMagic!– Yes, another must do! This is a very cool thing to do…literally and figuratively! If you are tired of baking in the Florida sun, step inside the theater for a break and you will encounter an absolutely wonderful 3d performance, complete with what I call “smellivision”… go, and you’ll see, I mean, smell, what I mean! Make sure you go to your favorite craft store before your trip and buy a few fake jewels. During The Little Mermaid scene, Ariel will “toss” some jewels at the screen. You will earn the MOST AMAZING MOM EVER award if you “catch” some of the jewels to give you to your kids! (you can do the same thing with a golf ball on Soarin’ in Epcot)
Voyage of the Little Mermaid– Step into Ariel’s world for this special, 15 minute presentation that includes all of your favorite songs!
NEW for 2012/2013- Fantasyland is expanding! Soon, some of your favorite princesses will find new homes and experiences within the already magnificent Fantasyland!
