Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Princess Dresses at Disney World

Share This!

If you’ve ever seen a TV commercial or promotional video for Walt Disney World, then you’ve certainly seen images of young girls wearing Disney princess dresses in the theme parks. This iconography is so prevalent that it’s easy to get the impression that ball gown attire is mandatory for every elementary-school-age child entering the Magic Kingdom.

While many girls do choose to wear princess dresses for some of their time at Walt Disney World, this is certainly not a requirement for any activity at the parks. Your daughter might love to dress up, or she might be completely uncomfortable in princess attire. Both opinions are perfectly OK. You should follow your child’s lead on whether to consider princess dresses as part of your vacation plan.

Here’s the complete scoop on how to navigate the princess dress situation in a way that makes sense for your family.

Do most girls wear princess dresses at Walt Disney World?

When you’re just walking around the park, you’ll see just a small percentage of girls ages about 3 to 8 wearing princess costumes, maybe 5%. However, there are some places at the parks where the percentage of girls in princess attire will be much higher.

My non-scientific, personal observation is that something along the lines of 50-60% of the preschool and elementary age girls at the princess-themed character meals will be wearing princess dresses. Note that this also means that 40-50% of the girls there will NOT be wearing gowns. Very few girls older than age 8 or 9 will be wearing princess dresses at meals, or anywhere else.

Something on the order of 80% of the girls getting makeovers at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique (BBB) will be sporting some form of princess attire. Similarly, something on the order of 80-90% of the children attending Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party will be wearing costumes. These might be princess gowns, but could just as easily be something else entirely.

My own three daughters did lots of princess dress-up at home, but never chose to wear gowns while at Walt Disney World, not even at the princess meals or the BBB. That was their choice. They never felt uncomfortable that other girls were wearing dresses at character meals while they were not. You should use your judgment about your own child’s personality about whether you think she would feel left out or sad if other girls are dressed in gowns while she is not.

If my daughter wants to wear a princess dress at the parks, do I have to buy the dress at Walt Disney World?


There is absolutely no requirement that princess dresses worn at Disney World must be purchased at Disney World. You can buy Disney-branded costumes at DisneyStore.com, from brick-and-mortor Disney Stores, from online costume vendors such as buycostumes.com, from general online vendors such as Amazon.com, or from big-box retailers such as Wal-Mart and Target. You can also buy or make costumes from Disney patterned fabric (try Etsy.com for some great options).

You could also buy or make a non-Disney princess costume for your daughter to wear at the parks.

All of these options are equally acceptable. Really, I mean it.

Where can I buy princess dresses at Walt Disney World?

Practically everywhere. Nearly every gift shop in the parks and resorts has at least a few princess dresses on display. You’ll find the largest selection at Mouse Gear at Epcot, the World of Disney at Downtown Disney, and the Emporium and Castle Couture at the Magic Kingdom. They are also sold as part of several makeover packages at both BBB locations.

Are the dresses the same at Walt Disney World and Disneyland?

Yes. There has recently been a real push toward the standardization of merchandise at the Disney theme parks. Generally, you will find the same dresses at Disney World and Disneyland.

Which princess dresses are available at the parks?

The exact mix of princess dresses changes from time to time. As of autumn 2012, the following princess costumes were available in stores throughout Walt Disney World:

  • Snow White
  • Cinderella
  • Belle
  • Rapunzel
  • Sleeping Beauty (Aurora)
  • Ariel
  • Tiana
  • Jasmine (a two-piece pants suit, not a gown)
  • Tinker Bell
  • Merida (from Brave)
  • Minnie Mouse

I don’t see my daughter’s favorite princess listed. Does this mean there are no costumes for her sold at Walt Disney World?

As I said, the exact range of costumes does vary. From time to time, there are other Disney princess costumes sold. And when new princess movies are released, more costumes are added to the mix. I have occasionally seen Mulan and Pocahantas costumes available. But if your daughter’s favorite is not listed above, you should be prepared with other alternatives.

What costume sizes are available at the parks?

Not every store will have every costume in every size, but generally the princess costumes are available from size Youth XXS to Youth XL.

What does that mean?

Here are the sizing details:

  • XXS (2/3) fits H 33-39 in (84-99 cm), W 26-32 lbs (12-15 kg)
  • XS (4/5) fits H 39-45 in (99-114 cm), W 32-41 lbs (15-19 kg)
  • S (6/6X) fits H 45-47 in (114-119 cm), W 41-46 lbs (19-21 kg)
  • M (7/8) fits H 47-53 in (119-135 cm), W 46-68 lbs (21-31 kg)
  • L (10-12) fits H 53-59 in (135-150 cm), W 68-87 lbs (31-39 kg)
  • XL (14/16) fits H 59-64 in (150-163 cm), W 87-115 lbs (39-59 kg)

Are there baby costumes?

A few of the costumes, often Minnie Mouse, come in infant sizes, but these can be challenging to find.

Are the costumes true to size?

In my personal experience, they tend to run a little small. If your child is on the rounder side, the dresses may be tight.

Can we try the dress on before we buy it?

Some, but certainly not all, gift shops at Walt Disney World have fitting rooms. Those that do include World of Disney at Downtown Disney, Mouse Gear at Epcot, and Castle Couture at the Magic Kingdom. If the shop has a fitting room, you’re certainly welcome to try it on there before you buy.

If you’re in a shop that doesn’t have a fitting room, you can slip the dress on over a light tee or tank top to get a feel for sizing.

My daughter is an unusual size. What are my options?

As noted above, there is no requirement that your princess dress must be purchased on site. If you absolutely want your daughter to wear a princess dress at WDW, but think she might be challenging to fit, I encourage you to purchase your dress in advance from another source. Go to the Disney Store at your local mall and try on dresses in many sizes. Or perhaps consider having a dress made specifically for her. If you don’t have a favorite local seamstress, trying search on Etsy. A quick search there for “custom princess dress” brings up dozens of options with prices starting at about $30.

What is the fabric like on the official Disney Parks dresses?

It’s pretty nice. In my opinion the fabrics are generally quite soft and sturdy. You don’t touch them and go “Ick!” the way you might with some off-brand Halloween costumes.

While my three daughters did not wear these dresses in the parks, we did purchase several over the years. They stood up to dozens of at-home “tea parties” and dress-up play dates. You should be able to get substantial dress up use out of them after your Disney vacation.

As for specifics, the fabric and trim vary by princess. The inner tag of the Sleeping Beauty dress currently sold at WDW reads: “Body 96% Polyester, 4% Spandex; Collar 89% Polyester, 11% Metallic; Sleeves 100% Polyester; Lower portion overlay outer 100% Nylon; Lower portion overlay inner 89% Polyester, 11% Metallic; Shell 100% Nylon; Interlining 100% Polyester; Lining 100% Polyester.” I really have no idea at all what any of that means, but I thought I’d share.

To me, the Tiana and Merida dresses feel the nicest, but that’s just my personal preference.

Is the fabric quality different than the Disney Store costume fabric?

Merida dress sold at WDW, fall 2012. Click to enlarge.

Yes. In my opinion, the fabrics and embellishments on the Disney parks dresses are of slightly higher quality than those on the Disney Store dresses. This may or may not make a difference to you. If you know your daughter will only be wearing the dress for one character meal, then a less expensive dress of slightly lower quality may be perfectly sufficient.

Both the Disney parks and Disney Store dresses are more substantial and better made than the dresses found at other vendors such as Target or buycostumes.com. But again, if you’re only going to use the dress once, a “throw away” dress may be just what you need.

Are the dresses comfortable?

The perception of comfort really lies with the individual child. The Disney parks dresses are of high quality. The seams are generally finished, so there’s not too much extraneous wear against the skin. However, depending on the costume, there may be lace, sequins or other possibly itch-inducing embellishments next to the skin. If your child is sensitive, you’ll likely want her to wear a tank or cami underneath the gown.

Another thing to consider is that these are primarily long dresses, with many layers of fabric.

Rapunzel dress sold at WDW, fall 2012. Click to enlarge.

Depending on when you choose to visit Walt Disney World, the temperatures can easily be well into the 90s with 100% humidity. Your daughter might think her dress is perfectly comfy if she wears it to the parks in January, while the exact same dress would be perceived as stifling in July.

Also, long skirts can make getting in and out of ride vehicles challenging for even the most coordinated child. Given this, I strongly suggest bringing a change of clothing for any child heading into the parks in costume. This may be one of the circumstances where renting a locker at the park makes sense.

And now the big question … How much do these dresses cost?

As you can see in the photos at the right, the princess dresses are currently priced at a uniform $64.95, plus tax, each (prices are obviously subject to change). The price is the same regardless of size or princess. The only exception to this is Tinker Bell. The Tink costumes are a few dollars less expensive, but if you want wings (And really, can you be Tinker Bell without wings?), then there is an additional fee to buy these separately.

Is that the real cost total cost? Are there any other expenses I should know about?

Belle dress sold at WDW, fall 2012. Click to enlarge.

The $65 dresses are displayed with a multitude of add-on accessories including wigs, gloves, shoes, tiaras, handbags, jewelry, wands, capes, and more. Some items are princess-specific, while others are just sort of generally sparkly. Prices for these items range from about $10-$25, depending on the item. Many of these accoutrements are displayed at a six-year-old’s eye level. Good luck with buying just a dress. If you’re trying to budget, I’d plan about $100 for each child who will be getting her princess on.

Any tips for saving money?

Again, the princess costumes at Target are going to be cheaper than costumes sold in the parks. If you’re looking to economize, bring your own from home. The same thing is true for the princess accessories. You can find a tiara for two or three dollars at any party supply store. It might not have an illustration of the proper princess on it, but you will likely save several dollars over a tiara purchased at the Magic Kingdom.

Similarly, you can get the “princess effect” without springing for a full gown. Wearing a tiara and holding a wand will give your daughter the air of royalty, without having to buy a pesky dress.

If you know you have a Disney trip coming up, try shopping at the after-Halloween sales at party stores and other retailers. I’ve often seen significant markdowns.

I’d like to get my daughter a Disney parks princess dress, but I want to have it in advance of my trip. Is there any way to get these other than going to the parks?

Yes. Disney can mail parks merchandise to your home. Note that this is not the same as ordering Disney Store merchandise to be sent to your home.

Are the dresses the same throughout Walt Disney World?

Generally yes.

During my most recent WDW visit, I was in heavy princess dress investigation mode. The vast majority of dresses for each princess were identical at every shop, in all the parks, resorts, and Downtown Disney. There’s no need to run from shop to shop searching for something different.

I did run into two or three situations where, for example, a short-sleeved Belle dress was in one shop and spaghetti-strap Belle dress was in another shop. This was rare, likely due to an incomplete merchandise turnover at that particular shop. For the most part, you should expect the dresses to be the same everywhere in the parks.

My daughter likes to dress up, but is not into the princesses. Are there any options for her?

Nearly all the costumes for girls sold at Walt Disney World are princess gowns. As an alternative, there are a few items of pirate costuming that are available near the exit to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at the Magic Kingdom and at the Pirate’s League boutique.

You could also opt to have your daughter’s face painted like a pirate, cat, or any of several dozen other choices. Face painting stations are located in all four theme parks. Prices vary, but generally range from about $10 to $20.

Is there a princess dress equivalent for boys?

The emphasis is very much on costuming for girls.

There are pirate costumes at the locations I just mentioned. I have sometimes seen Peter Pan, Buzz Lightyear, and Woody costumes sold in the parks, but these may not be available at all times and can be much harder to locate.

If you have a boy and would like him to wear a costume of anything other than a pirate, then you should plan to bring that costume from home.

Can adults wear princess costumes at the parks?

No, sorry. There’s no specific age cut-off, but once a child stops looking like a child and starts looking like a teen, then they may no longer wear costumes at Walt Disney World other than during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

Bummer! I really wanted to dress up.

Adults are welcome to wear certain elements of princess costuming, but not the full regal attire. I have several adult friends that regularly wear tiaras to the park, carry boas with them, or sport a tutu over their shorts for special occasions, but wearing a full dress as a grown-up is off limits.

Is that the official word?

Yep. The WDW website includes the following language – “Attire that is not appropriate for the theme parks (and which may result in refusal of admittance) includes but is not limited to:

For comparison purposes, Sleeping Beauty dress sold in the toy department of Target, fall 2012. Click to enlarge.
  • Adult costumes or clothing that can be viewed as representative of an actual Disney character.
  • Masks (unless you are dressing up for a particular event).
  • Clothing with objectionable material, including obscene language or graphics.
  • Excessively torn clothing.
  • Clothing which, by nature, exposes excessive portions of the skin that may be viewed as inappropriate for a family environment.
  • Objectionable tattoos.

A Guest is allowed into the parks if her or his hair (or make-up, if applicable) has been made to resemble a Disney Princess or character (for example, after a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique makeover) provided the Guest is not also wearing a costume or clothed to look like the character.”

So my royal subjects, is there anything else you’d like to know about the princess dress situation at Walt Disney World? Have you purchased a dress for your daughter? What was your experience like? Did you elect not to buy a dress for your little girl? Was this an issue or a non-event? Let us know in the comments below.

UPDATE: There is a new version of this post with 2014 photos and information on Frozen costumes HERE.

    I saw pocahantas dresses at Animal Kingdom today. Just as an FYI as it wasn’t listed.

    • October 18, 2012 at 7:04 am

      I did mention that Pocahantas is available sometimes. As you mention, when this happens it is generally at the Animal Kingdom. Since most folks seeking princess attire are either at a princess meal or the BBB, which are not at the AK, I left Pocahantas off the main list. Yes, thank you for the tip, if you’re looking for Ms. P, then the AK is the place to start.

  • October 17, 2012 at 9:11 pm

    For our August trip my daughter wore a sundress or short and t-shirt under her dress. This made it easy to take on and off and kept any of the scratchy parts from bothering her. We also brought a gallon size zip lock bag to stuff the dress into when she wasn’t wearing it so it wouldn’t take up so much room in the stroller.

  • October 17, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    My daughter is going to be Merida for Halloween. I bought her dress at the Disney Store and it looks exactly like the one pictured above. Disney Store ticket price was $49.95 ($15 less than the Park price) plus I had a 25% off coupon. The Disney Store has had most costumes on sale in the last week or so for 25% off as well.

    • October 18, 2012 at 7:07 am

      I’ve examined both the WDW and Disney Store Merida dresses this month. There are some slight differences, but not ones that would matter to most kids. The Disney Store dresses are quite good and almost always at least $10 less expensive than the park dresses.

  • October 18, 2012 at 7:36 am

    We always B.Y.O. and use it as a reward. If you keep your cool and don’t “go boneless” all the way until lunch time, you can wear your princess dress. Target has carried shorter “tutu style” dresses, which make getting around a little easier.

  • October 18, 2012 at 10:13 am

    In April ’12 my 3 & 5 year olds wore costumes everyday 🙂 Everytime Disneystore.com had a sale, I would purchase one. Currently, (Oct. 18th) Disneystore.com is selling most costumes 25% off. So I ordered an Ariel Costume and Rapunzel Wedding dress on sale for $37 a piece for our upcoming ’13 April trip, and I got free shipping,too. If you sign up for their email updates, they will send you an email anytime there is a sale…

    I did put light undershirts under the costumes with puffy sleeves (Cinderella, snow white, Minnie mouse, etc), and light tank tops under the ones that had revealing shoulders (Belle, Sleeping Beauty. I brought extra outfits in my purse just in case my girls became uncomfortable and wanted to change, but I couldn’t have pried the costumes off of them if I tried!

    This coming trip my girls will be Cinderella’s Wedding, Rapunzel’s wedding, Ariel, Tinkerbell, Belle, Sleeping Beauty, Alice, Queen of Hearts (etsy.com), and then they will both be minnie mouse.

    By the way, these ARE our souvenirs. I gave the girls a choice, ‘would you like to wear costumes everyday, or would you like to pick one thing to buy everyday?’, and they chose costumes. And even though I buy them ahead of time, they can’t wear them until Disney. If they started to eye something at a park, I’d just say, “Well, we can get that if you want, but that means you can’t dress up like Snow White tomorrow…” and they would always choose the costume, no whining necessary. (I knew they would chose the costumes or I would have never DARED suggested getting the toy and skipping the costume I already purchased, lol)

    For my nieces we also did our own bibbidi boutique makeover in the condo. We bought glitter hairspray,princess barettes and tiaras at walmart.

  • October 21, 2012 at 9:12 pm

    I bought a sleeping beauty dress at Disneystore.com for my 3 year old daughter for our July trip and lunch at Cinderella’s Royal Table. The percentage of girls in costumes was VERY high for that meal. She loved being in costume and made the meal even more special. I brought the dress and tiara in her stroller and she wore another outfit the rest of the day. When it was time to go to lunch, we stopped in Castle Couture and asked to use their dressing room to change. They were very accomodating. I did feel sad that she was not wearing an official WDW dress, but she still looked beautiful and I don’t think anyone would notice. I do think the Disney Store and WDW dresses are fuller and hold up better than the other brands.

  • October 25, 2012 at 11:59 pm

    I appreciate all this info but it’s everything you might want to know about KIDS princess costumes; I’m really looking for adult costumes. My question is, where is the Merida (BRAVE) costume for ADULTS? After all this is the 2nd Halloween since the movie came out and still NO Adult Brave costume?

    • October 30, 2012 at 9:29 pm

      How is is the 2nd Halloween since the Brave movie came out???? It was released in June 2012.

  • November 2, 2012 at 12:36 am

    Wondering if anyone knows the price of the “Bibbidi Bobbidi” Boutique tshirt? I’m planning on having my daughter (7) to do the Lower level package but would like to buy the tshirt. She won’t wear the tutu and she doesn’t like fingernail polish so I thought I’d like to save the $30. =)

  • January 25, 2013 at 10:30 am

    The bippety boppety boutique goes up to age 12, but I read that the cut off for wearing princess dresses is age 9. Do you know whether a 12 year old can wear a princess dress if they’ve gone to BBB to wear to Cinderella’s castle? We have a 5, a 9, and a 12 year old and I hate for the older girl to feel excluded from the fun!

    • January 25, 2013 at 5:26 pm

      While Disney does change policies from time to time, I have never seen an explicitly stated age cutoff for princess dresses. I’ve looked in the BBBs as recently as three weeks ago and so no sign posted about no dresses for 12 year olds.

      There is, however, the rule noted above that adults cannot wear costumes that make them look like real characters. Within the last year or so, a teenage girl in a Tinker Bell costume was asked to leave one of the parks because her costume was too real.

      So, in practical terms it really comes down to how old your 12 year old looks. My own twin daughters have just turned 13. Some of their friends are fully developed and with the right clothing/makeup could be mistaken for 18 or 19, while others could still pass for 8 or 9. If your 12 yo looks like a teen, she may have an issue. If she looks like a kid, that’s less likely to happen.

  • March 10, 2013 at 12:36 pm

    Hi, thanks for all the great information. I have seen that all the newly released dresses at disneystore.com are much shorter than the traditional Disney princess dresses. Does anyone know whether wdw will have the same style dresses this June? I would prefer the longer dresses as my daughter thinks they look more princessy. I am specifically looking for a Belle dress, but will buy one elsewhere if they are the shorter length. Thanks and hope someone can advise me.

  • March 13, 2013 at 6:08 pm

    Hi… We too, are coming to Disneyworld in May. I have a Bippity Boppity Boutique appointment for my just turning 3 daughter prior to a dining with the princess night. I am wondering if anyone has pictures of the t shirt and tutu that is offered. I think she would be more comfortable. We are doing the Courtyard package. Thank you… Abigail

  • April 7, 2013 at 2:36 pm

    My friend and I are going to disney this may for my 16th birthday celebration. We want to make tutu’s that are inspired by Belle (mine age 16) and Ariel (my friend age 15). I was just wondering if that was aloud. Mine is gold and yellow and hers is blue and green with some purple. Would these be ok in the parks?

    • April 7, 2013 at 2:45 pm

      I’m not a cast member, so I can’t promise anything, but my gut reaction is that you’ll be fine. As long as you don’t look like the actual characters, you should have no problem at all. I have several adult friends who have worn tutus and tiaras into the parks and not encountered any issues. Just keep the top simple (like a tee shirt or tank) and wear regular shoes. Have a great time!

      • April 7, 2013 at 8:29 pm

        Thank you. We all have matching tank tops for my birthday and they don’t look like the character they are just inspired by them. We also have the disney store tiaras. Mine is the biggest. I think we will be fine as well. You won’t know until you try!

  • May 31, 2013 at 2:30 am

    Is there anyone out there who is interested in selling an Ariel dress (not the mermaid costume) size 14? My daughter is 10 but wears size 12. I’ve heard that the costumes run smallish. I’m also in the market for a size 7/8 Mulan costume. Thanks!

  • June 17, 2013 at 2:59 pm

    My granddaughter is 9 years old but is tall and a little on the plus size for her age. She would wear a girls (14-16 XL) Ariel dress (not the mermaid). Do you know if I can purchase one in the Downtown Disney BB Boutique? She will be very disappointed if they do not have that dress when we arrive for our appointment in October 2013. Should I purchase one in advance? Thank you for any advise you have to offer, Ellen

    • June 17, 2013 at 10:41 pm

      Hi Ellen,
      I recommend calling the Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boutique and asking them directly. Call 407-939-7895.

    hi, my daughter is 27 yrs old. she’s about 5’3” we are planning to go to disney land in late october. she has the mind of an 8yr old. and wants so bad to be snow white. i assume she CAN’T get a princess make over?

  • July 15, 2013 at 11:07 am

    Thank you for this information!! I assumed the dresses were much more expensive. My only problem is that my daughter is 7, we are going in January for her 8th birthday but she is wearing 12/14 right now. I am having the hardest time trying to find an XL costume online for her!! Should I just give in an buy one when we get there or does anyone know exactly where I should be looking? They don’t have anything higher than a 7/8 on the Disney site which, quite frankly, I think is total BS! I would appreciate any money saving tips on this subject, thank you!!

    • July 15, 2013 at 1:45 pm

      DisneyStore.com lists several children’s costumes up to size 10, but that won’t do you much good. You should be able to find XL princess sizes at WDW. The largest stores on property are the Emporium on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom, Mouse Gear at Epcot, and the World of Disney store at Downtown Disney. There should be several XL options at these locations. However, you won’t find any pricing discounts there.

      You may want to branch out and try some non-Disney sources. For example, if you go to buycostumes.com, look for “teen” or “tween” size costumes. This is often where you’ll find the equivalent of child XL or adult XS. Or try googling something like “teen Cinderella costume.” You should get lots of hits with sizes appropriate for your daughter, likely many of which will be less expensive than purchasing a costume at the parks.

  • August 6, 2013 at 2:01 pm

    Does anyone have any first-hand info on the fit of the Belle dress? I know what size to purchase, but I’m not sure how the straps/off the shoulder sleeves fit and I don’t know if it will be comfortable for my little one on our October trip. She already has custom Alice and Sofia dresses, and her other princess dress choice was either Belle or Rapunzel, but since Sofia is purple, I was leaning towards Belle. Just not sure about those straps! TIA!

  • September 3, 2013 at 6:48 am

    For those of you planning to bring in your own dress, another great vendor to consider is http://www.littledressupshop.com/. They have most of the Disney princesses covered, plus a few unique designs as well. My daughter has a couple of their dresses. They are well-made, machine washable and quite comfortable! They are less expensive than the Disney park gowns too.

  • September 17, 2013 at 10:53 pm

    So am I to understand that an adult can wear a “princess” type outfit to the “Not So Scary Halloween” party if it is not a Disney Princess outfit? Also where can my adult mentally disabled daughter get a hair & makeup makeover?

    • September 18, 2013 at 8:09 am

      Yes, adults can wear a generic princess costume to MNSSHP. You just have to make sure that there is no possibility that you would be confused with one of the real Disney princesses.

      The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique makeovers are only available for children ages 3-12. Adults can get their hair done at one of the full service salons at Walt Disney World. These are located at the Grand Floridian, Coronado Springs, and Dolphin resorts. Anyone is welcome there, but reservations are recommended.

  • September 26, 2013 at 2:04 pm

    Are the dresses at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique the same quality as the dresses sold in the Disney Park stores? I have seen girls walking around the parks with much nicer dresses than what were in the MK dress shop, and wondered where they got them. I assumed it was the Boutique, but reading your posts, that may have been a bad assumption.

    My daughter is 11 but she is rather tall for her age, would it be irregular for her to be wearing a dress around the park? If not do you think that she might be able to find a dress?

      Abby, my daughter is tall also and I was having a problem finding her a dress in the Disney store and online. I found a woman on EBay who has dresses from the park and they are around $20 cheaper and brand new. Just search Disney dress XL and I think her name is something like dizneypassion or something close to that. She has the dress of every princess and if you don’t see the one you want up there, message her and she can get it. Good luck!!
