Whether the girls in question are young or old, Barbie has a captivating magical quality. She’s more than 50 years old, but still has that special appeal. For those of you taking your vacation in Florida this year, a visit to the Barbie Dreamhouse Experience in Fort Lauderdale should be high on your list. With luxury vacation villas in Miami or even Naples and Cape Coral, you’re within easy driving distance too.
Visiting the Barbie Dreamhouse Experience
The Barbie Dreamhouse Experience is new, opening this month at Sawgrass Mills Shopping outlet in Fort Lauderdale. Barbie’s real life-sized house will be there for all her fans to visit. You won’t be able to miss it because it’s pink of course. It houses her iconic pink elevator which visitors can use to visit Barbie’s many life-sized rooms.
Interacting with Barbie
On entering Barbie’s pad you will receive a fabulous bracelet. This uses RFID technology and allows you to take part in the many interactive opportunities in the different rooms. You’ll be able to visit her living room, bedroom, bathroom, closet, kitchen and entertainment room.
In Barbie’s closet for instance you can try on her clothes. Of course we know she is much smaller than any of us, so trying on the clothes will be done digitally. Less fuss anyway.
Heading over to Barbie’s kitchen you can digitally customise your own cupcakes at her cup cake island. It’s a great feature that should be included in every home, though preferably not with just digital cup cakes!
Whilst exploring Barbie’s home you’ll also discover 350 Barbie dolls and other memorabilia to make you ooh and aah.
Upgrade to the VIP experience
Normal entrance costs $14 but you can upgrade your experience for $29. For this you get VIP treatment and your entrance bracelet is presented in a keepsake box. It also gives you access to the Fashion Runway and the Rockstar Stage.
On the Fashion Runway you can join in model training, hair and make-up styling and strut your stuff down the runway Barbie-style.
At the Rockstar Stage you can join in performance training complete with choreography, select your outfit and appear on the Rockstar Stage.
A takeaway Barbie of your own
We’re sure most girls already own a Barbie or two, but if you don’t you’ll get the chance at Barbie’s Dreamhouse Boutique. Phew that’s a relief.
Can’t wait to visit? With the shopping mall offering fashionistas their own chance to secure a wardrobe as iconic as Barbie’s, it’s a great day out.
Your own vacation dreamhouse
Your own Florida vacation rental may not be pink like Barbie’s Dreamhouse, but you can be sure it will offer you all the luxury and space you need. With your own private pool and hot tub you’ll be able to soak up the wonderful Florida sunshine. Don’t forget to book your hire car too for trips to the shopping mall.
