SynopsisSome days after the Last Battle with Darkar, vacation is about to start, but is much shorter than usual. The girls are packing to leave, except Musa and Aisha, who were going to go to the beach together. Bloom and Sky recently had an arguement.
When Stella is about to leave for vacation, a Solaria messenger arrives and announces that there will be a Princess Ball for Stella. Her father, King Radius, tells her there will be a surprise that will make her happy. Stella assumes that her parents will get back together and is very happy. She invites the Winx to her Princess Ball. She gets the Winx to help her find a new dress in Magix.
The Winx are at a pizza place, when they meet Chimera and her two friends from Beta Academy. Chimera snatches the pie and Stella argues saying it was her pie. They fight over it. Bloom tries to get everyone to get along and tries to introduce herself. Chimera makes fun of Flora and Stella is angered. Chimera and her friends leave.
The girls break up, Aisha and Musa to the beach, Tecna and Flora to check out the rest of the mall, and Bloom and Stella to see the dresses. Bloom and Stella encounter Chimera again when Stella finds her perfect dress. They both race to the store. Chimera beats them. Stella demands to the cashier why Chimera got the dress and she didn't. The cashier told Stella that Chimera was going to be the princess of Solaria.
They all meet back at the beach. Musa has a new hairdo, longer pigtails. The Specialists arrive and they greet the Winx. The ocean nearby starts acting weird, and Aisha notices it. When an enormous wave hits, the Winx and the Specialists save all the people in the water. A mermaid from Andros appears and tells Aisha that Andros is in trouble. Aisha leaves to Andros.
Meanwhile, throughout the episode, the Trix were sent to the Omega Dimention. Icy was able to break out of her cell and break Stormy's and Darcy's. They encounter a wizard, Valtor, who sentenced to eternity. Icy break his cell and he vowed to get all his powers back from before. He takes the power of Andros, and transforms all the mermaids nearby into horrible creatures. Musa changes her hair style and Stella meets Chemera again, as her stepsister-to-be.
