We visited the middle of March 2014. Originally, I was hoping to have the "princess" experience at a character meal, but realized too late that you needed to book 6 months in advance if you wanted to get a reservation! As a read/researched all things Disney, I came across the princess makeover experience at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. I was able to make a reservation at the Downtown Disney location (with plenty of choice of day/time) 6 weeks in advance. We chose to have the appointment at 3 in the afternoon. I was told to arrive 15 minutes in advance. We happened to arrive 25 minutes in advance but was unable to sign in until only 15 minutes prior. (This gave us time to wander around the HUGE Disney store.) We waited about another 10 minutes (after sign-in) before all three of my girls were seated. As many others mention, there isn't much seating but I found parents are coming and going so it didn't take long before a seat opened up. We brought a dress from home for each of our girls and selected the lowest package, which included hairstyle of choice with tiara, barrette, comb, makeup, and bag. I also paid an extra $5 for two bottles of nail polish so each of the girls could have their nails painted (and bottles brought home.) All of my girls LOVED the experience! The smiles on their face were worth every penny!!! In my opinion, the 45 minute makeover was worth more than a meal with Cinderella (who maybe they would have spent 5 minutes with and whom they met at a character meet and greet anyways.) Disney photographers took some great pictures throughout the makeover (which you can view at home whether you choose to buy a photo package or not) but we were also allowed to take our own photos, as well. Outside of the Disney store there are some good murals/princess statues to take further pictures of your princess after her makeover. I was also told there was a Princess parade your child could participate in, however, we didn't have the time to stick around/wait until it began, as the parade is only at certain times during the day. After all of our time at Disney, this was definitely one of the top experiences and memories!
