You Don't Have to Be a Kid to Get a Princess Makeover at Disney World
Living like a princess for a day isn’t just a dream anymore.
At Walt Disney World in Orlando, salons are making wishes come true by offering couture princess makeovers for adults (as well as kids).
Previously, children could visit the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, a beauty salon for kids, to be transformed into tiny princesses when they visit the park. But ever since last October, during Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, adults have been able to visit various salons to receive Character Couture makeovers.
Guest services manager Joseph Motowidlak told Today, “We saw that our guests were coming up with outfits and entire ensembles inspired by Disney characters. We really saw a need for some kind of transformative makeover experience for people of all ages — something customized to allow guests to really enjoy their day on our property.”
Adults can bring in their own outfits inspired by their favorite characters, from Disney princesses like Tiana and Jasmine to Star Wars villains and even animal characters like Bambi.
“The main thing that makes the experience different than anything else is that it's customizable," Motowidlak said. "Our stylists have an extensive color palette to work with and clients get to talk through their vision for their look with their stylist — whether that's something subtle or more dramatic. Truly, the sky is the limit."
Four salons at the resort offer Character Couture Makeovers: Ship Shape Salon at Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts, Ivy Trellis Salon at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, Salon by the Springs at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, and La Vida Salon at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. Prices range from $50-120, depending on the client's age and types of services. A full package of hair, makeup, and nail designs would cost an adult $120.
Next time you visit Disney, be sure to have your best princess outfit ready.
