.

We went to American Girl Place on December 30. They opened at 9 a.m. & we got there at 10:30. The store was PACKED, but there was NOT a line to get in. If you get overwhelmed by the crowd, go to the bookstore on the bottom floor (not as crowded, but plenty to look at). As far as the hair salon goes, they estimated an hour & a half for our dolls' hair & it ended up being 2 hours. Do NOT wait around for your doll to have their hair done. There's too many other things to look at. Just go back later & check on the status of your doll's hair.

Take plenty of money. This entire event (with lunch & theater included) was about $225 per child BECAUSE your child wants to leave there with a doll. The presentation of each doll in their own historical setting is done top-notch!

BEFORE YOU GO: You must make reservations for the cafe & the theater (you cannot get seating for either one without reservations & we saw MANY disappointed parents & girls walk away).

We saw CIRCLE OF FRIENDS. It was good & our children were entertained, but it was not what I expected. I was a little disappointed. All of the cast members had great acting skills & most had nice singing voices. Wait around afterwards to get autographs from the girls.

The cafe lunch was PERFECT! The cafe itself is PRECIOUS! We borrowed a doll on our way in (since one of the dolls was not back from the hair salon.) There were PLENTY of dolls to choose from. Each doll gets their own seat to attach to the table & their own black & white striped cup & saucer. The food is pretty good (Turkey Pot-Pie, Bitty Bites, & the Oriental Chicken Salad) They also bring you appetizers with delicious mini breads with chicken salad, veggies, cheese, & crackers. You will NOT leave hungry. This is definitely worth the $22/person for lunch. Take lots of pix! Have your waiter take a pic of your group!

This is not to be missed - definitely a MUST SEE if you're in NYC with your daughter, niece, etc.
