A New Transformation Option

One complaint that I’ve heard over and over again is from parents of teenagers and also from adults. They do not like that Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique has a top age of 12. That means that Cinderella, Belle, and the others are all too old for the transformation! I guess that I’m not the only one who heard this complaint, because Disney has done something about it.

Character Couture packages are now available at Walt Disney World. You can choose from hair; hair and makeup; and hair, makeup, and nails. Choices include fun options such as Minnie Mouse, Evil Queen, and Galactic Goddess. The stylists are willing to work with you to create the look that you want. Character Couture is not just for women, there are packages for men who want to make a transformation as well.

There are a couple of things that you need to know about Character Couture. There is no costume included, so that part is up to you. Also, the cost of makeup packages does not include foundation. You’ll need to take care of that on your own, or pay an extra fee.

Character Couture is available at Ivy Trellis Salon (Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa), La Vida Salon (Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort), Salon by the Springs (Disney’s Wilderness Lodge), and Ship Shape Salon (Disney’s Yacht Club Resort). For more information or to make an appointment, call 407-WDW-SPAS (407-939-7727). If you’re thinking that this would be fun for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, you should make that reservation soon. This is going to be popular for the upcoming parties.
