Re: Quality of Disney store costumes?
I bought DD a Belle costume at the boutique in Downtown Disney when she was 4 (and I am pretty certain they are the same as in the store--it was about $40-50). We've had it for two years, in the dress up box, and it is worn often by both girls. It still looks beautiful, and I bet it has been washed about every month or so. They don't often take dress up clothes outside, though.
Many things to many people.
