Bibbidi Bobbidi or Princess Breakfast Final Choice
It’s tough to decide on which one works best. For my family of 5, here’s how it breaks down by price and other factors.
- Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for my youngest daughter. My youngest is the only one age eligible for a Princess makeover and we’d likely do with the lower-end package. It would be a special experience for her, and take about an hour of family time out of our day. I can’t imagine doing a $65 special experience just for one kid, so I’d add in the same price for my older kids to pick out a special souvenir. Including park tickets, I estimate we’d spend about $820 on admission, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and souvenirs for my other kids. This estimate is rough and doesn’t include meals or lodging.
- Princess Breakfast Adventures would include everyone in my family, but I don’t know how thrilled by husband and son would be about attending. Let’s say I send them over to The VOID in Downtown Disney instead at about $80, plus lunch at Black Tap for CrazyShakes at about $70. Then the three of us girls will go to breakfast, adding that into the boys’ total, we’d spend about $565 on just the meal and entertainment for one day, with no park admission.
- What does this break down look like for you? Is including park admission into Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique a fair comparison or would you not even consider that when making a decision?
