One thing I love about working at Disney is seeing how Cast Members find ways to make our Guests’ experiences even better. A few years ago, my son was magically transformed into a brave knight at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in Disney Springs Marketplace. To make his appointment with a Fairy Godmother-in-Training, I called the Disney Reservation Center to check availability. Fast forward to today, guests now have an even easier way to make appointments for this and other experiences using a new online reservation system available on Disneyland.com and DisneyWorld.com.
With the online system, you can quickly search for available dates or make cancelations to existing appointments at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique locations in domestic U.S. Parks, and at The Pirates League and Harmony Barber Shop in Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort.
The site will seem familiar to anyone who has made an online dining reservation as it contains a similar layout and features (just create or sign into your Disney account to get started).
Guests are strongly encouraged to make reservations in advance for these experiences as they are quite popular and appointment times fill up quickly. Reservations can be made up to 60 days in advance for the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique (ages 3-12) in Disneyland park. At Walt Disney World Resort, reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance for the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique (ages 3-12), The Pirates League, or Harmony Barber Shop.
Looking at photographs of my now teenage son from that knightly experience at the boutique, I’m reminded of how much fun we had that morning, and how Disney helped create memories for us that will last a lifetime.
