The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at the Magic Kingdom continues to be a hugely popular destination for younf guests, and in an effort to increase capacity Disney is beginning work in a few weeks that will add more chairs to this location, as well as a very special magic mirror, and a transformation experience that will help guests choose the perfect outfits and accessories. The Magic Kingdom location will remain open during these enhancements and existing reservations will not be affected.
In addition, a whole new Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique location is being added at Disney's Grand Floridian resort and will be constructed where the current Ivy Trellis Salon (which itself will relocate into Senses – A Disney Spa).
