Can we still dine at American Girl?

Check your individual store site for dining and reservation availability. There will be slightly altered hours and we will be limiting table sizes based on local restrictions. In addition, we have switched to disposable menus and have temporarily removed loaner dolls from our cafés and party rooms.

Can we still visit the American Girl Salon?

Check your individual store site for American Girl Salon appointment availability.

To ensure proper social distancing in stores that offer girl ear piercing (Chicago, Columbus, Dallas, Houston, and New York), there may only be room for your girl, one adult, and our stylist in the piercing area. This could vary by location, so please check with the stylist.
