We recently visited the Ivy Trellis salon at Walt Disney World for Perfectly Prepared Princess makeovers for Aleyah and McKinley. I have always found Ivy Trellis to be a great option if there is no availability at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, or if your girls would like a hairdo other than the tight ballerina bun offered at BBB.
Ivy Trellis is located inside the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa at Walt Disney World! It is truly a hidden gem, and a much quieter atmosphere than Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique! It’s also possible that your princess will enjoy more special attention while at Ivy Trellis than she would at BBB.
You will find Ivy Trellis on the 2nd floor of the main building, near the monorail. There are only 3 client chairs in this location and a very small waiting area. Tiny in comparison to the massive Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique with numerous chairs and staff. I enjoy the quaint atmosphere. I will also note that Ivy Trellis is also decorated like a normal salon rather than bright blue hues surrounding the BBB.
When we entered, we registered at the desk and then the girls met their stylists. They were so excited by that time and the staff was great. They laughed with them and did whatever they asked. The salon was empty so we got to view it all and take pictures without imposing upon anyone.
This experience proved to be magical and fun for both the girls and they really felt like princesses whe we left. The experience included hairdo, makeup and painted fingernails. Perfectly Prepared Princess packages even include tiaras!
Guests don’t have to have the full Perfectly Prepared Princess Package. Here are some other options: princess hairdo, glitter and a tiara for $50; and you can add a little princess glow make-up for $25 more. Our makeover included the hairdo, glitter and tiara, make-up and a light nail polishing for $90. Gratuity of 20% is automatically added. Discounts are available for annual passholders, DVC members and Disney Chase Visa cardholders.
The Perfectly Prepared Princess Package is for guests 4-12! This is available at Ivy Trellis, but also at Disney’s Coronado Springs Casa de Belleza Beauty Salon and at Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resort Ship Shape Salon. If you have booked your trip with me, I will book this experience for you. Others may call Ivy Trellis at 407-824-1679 for more information.
Guests can bring their own dresses, jewelry and other adornments to finish the look. We did a mini photo shoot for the girls around Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and also at the park.
It was a wonderful day!!
