#DisneySMMoms Question of the Day 12/1/10

Let's discuss for a minute the whole Princess experience. Our first trip to Disney I was shocked to see all these little girls dolled up in Disney Princess dresses, fancy pony tails and glitter in their hair!

At first it seemed really impractical. I mean, how can those little girls go on any rides? And then, we wandered into the store...GASP! The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique offers a range of services that cost $49.99 - $189.95. Um - that's what I spend on MY hair! Which leads to today's...

QUESTION: Have you ever given in and gone all out with a special surprise at Disney like the Bibbidi Bobbidi Botique?

We've haven't done this yet. We bought several of the expensive princess costumes with matching shoes, but no BBB so far. Rarely, will my daughter wear the dresses in the parks. It's usually very hot when we go and she prefers not to.

If she ever shows sincere interest in visiting BBB, I'll work it into a trip. I think it would be cool to see what they do with my princess.

I'll admit...I'm a sucker when it comes to our grandchildren and give in to their every whim. ;)

Oh my gosh. I'm so glad I'm not the only mom who saw the princess thing at Disney for the first time and was simply shocked. That was when my daughter was one. Two years later, I was one of those moms who gave in. We were just going to get her hair done and somehow we walked out with a little three year old with pink hair and a beautiful princess dress. We're doing it again later this month for her fifth birthday.

We did a completely "Surprise" Disney trip for my Mom's 60th, and we are surprising the kids this Jan with a trip. We are leaving New Years Day, and they have no clue! Pardon my question, but what are DisneySMMoms and can I join? Much to my husband's chagrin, I love all things Disney!

The first time we went to Disney - the littles were 3 and 5 and it was HOT (early August). We had packed all of their Disney princess dress up clothes from home - and they wore those... so no. We are going next week and it won't be as hot, but now the littles are 6 and almost 9 and - kinda understanding the value of a buck now, will probably choose to spend their money elsewhere!

We never did BBB, but only because my daughter aged out by the time we discovered it. My sister did the BBB birthday package, and by bringing in their own dresses it wasn't too outlandish. I think we spent a similar amount on the complete American Girl experience. That was totally worth it for me (the mom,) and hopefully for my daughter too!

BBB (or a pirate equivalent) isn't my son's thing. But have to admit that if I had a little princess, I'd be tempted to give in once

I have not since I don't have little girls, but I know some who have done it. Plus the Cinderella Breakfast/Lunch thing which I hear requires reservation way ahead and what not.

I have a 3 1/2 y/o and 1 y/o and they were infants when we first went to Disney. I don't know what I would do about BBB-ing, but more than likely pass on it. But it is soooo CUTE to see lil' princesses all dressed up around the park.

I've never indulged in anything too crazy expensive for my Princess, er, I mean daughter, YET! She's a real sucker for anything Princess and I'll have to admit, it's pretty cute! I guess my thing is I always know that the boundry line gets drawn and if I move that boundary line, it might forever be set high! It is fun to do the suprise girly thing and I would love to visit the Disney BBB with her!

No, but I have taken her to the barber shop on main street for an updo and a glittering. $7 and it looks every bit as good, if not better, than the BBBoutique. My favorite Disney tip ever!

I am acutally considering the Boutique IF we get in for #DisneySMMoms

We just did the Mickey's Halloween Spooktacular surprise in our Disney hotel room It was delivered the afternoon of Halloween day. They decked out our room Halloween Style. It had lots of wonderful treats and things like light-up lanyards and a fleece blanket with a built-in carry strap and a light up trick-or-treat Mickey bag among the gifts which we used at the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. Worth every penny.

I would have begged my parents to do it for me and it might have been a birthday present but alas, I was older when they introduced it. I don't think they want 20yos hogging the appointments from the little ones. However, if/ when I have little ones I will do it for them. The pictures are so cute and definite presents their grandparents would appreciate.
