If you’re vacationing in Orlando at the Vista Cay Resort, a must see is the brand new, completely reimagined Disney Springs at Walt Disney World. This newly designed area, once named “Downtown Disney” features some amazing upscale dining options, as well as more casual eateries, a Splitsville bowling alley, AMC movie theatre, and plenty of shopping for the whole family.
While the new Disney Springs offers more options catering towards adults than its predecessor (lucky you, Mom and Dad!), the area is still home to an abundance of family-friendly fun! The Rainforest Café is sure to delight the whole family, and you absolutely cannot miss the Lego Store!
But our favorite store at Downtown Disney was always the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique! If you’ve visited the new Disney Springs, you may have noticed it can no longer be found in the World of Disney Store. But do not fret, because the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is here to stay! The store simply received a makeover itself, and moved locations to the Once Upon a Toy Store.
The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is the perfect way for little ones to feel like part of a fairy tale. For children ages 3 to 12, both girls and boys can be transformed into princesses and knights by a “Fairy Godmother in Training”. The new location is five times larger than the previous one, featuring a more formal, expanded salon, with a beautiful mosaic centerpiece similar to Cinderella’s Castle at the Magic Kingdom.
First, your child starts in the dressing chamber, where he or she is able to pick an outfit inspired by the Disney characters, and greeted by Fairy Godmother herself in the mirror! Little princesses will get their hair, makeup, and nails done, and no princess costume is complete without a tiara of course! Your little prince or princess will get a chance to pose for pictures with Cinderella’s carriage before heading out to show off their new look!
At just about twenty minutes from Vista Cay, this is the perfect way to spend the day with the whole family. We hope your little ones enjoy being pampered at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, and that your fairy tale vacation begins with Once Upon a Time, at Vista Cay Resort…
