How many of us spent our childhood days dressing up as Cinderella, or pretending that we were really Tinkerbell? Well, thanks to Disney, this needn't be an activity just for the kids – now adults can be transformed into their favourite Disney character when they visit the iconic brand's Florida theme park. The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Walt Disney World is a beauty salon where children aged 3-12 could previously get dressed up as one of the famous princesses. And now, the salon has announced the introduction of a Character Couture Package, in which adults can have their hair, makeup and nails transformed into styles inspired by their favourite characters.
Disney costumes aren't just for kids!
Sounds pretty cool, right? We’re loving the idea of some Princess Jasmine makeup coupled with a Snow White-inspired manicure, perhaps. Guest services manager Joseph Motowidlak told the Today programme in the US: "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 customised to allow guests to really enjoy their day on our property. The main thing that makes the experience different than anything else is that it's customisable. Our stylists have an extensive colour 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."
Prices for a Character Couture makeover range from $50-$120, depending on what you're getting done, and you'll need to book two weeks in advance. And if you need any more convincing to book a trip to Walt Disney World, read why one of our writers believes it’s the ultimate magical holiday destination for all the family – yes, even the oldest ones.
