If you are planning a trip to Disney World and want a special place to get your child’s first haircut I would strongly suggest making an appointment at the Harmony Barber Shop. Harmony Barber Shop is located at Magic Kingdom, no other place than on Main Street USA. As you you pass under the train station, look to your left and you’ll see City Hall, the Fire Station and Harmony Barber Shop with it’s red and white striped pole out front.

I had been anxiously awaiting for my daughter to get her first haircut (she just turned 3!) and decided Harmony Barber Shop would be the perfect spot. I made my reservation over the phone at (407) WDW-PLAY prior to arrival. They do accept walk-ins but I noticed quite a few guests walking in and being told they were full so I would strongly encourage calling ahead of time to be on the safe side. They are open daily from 9AM-5PM.

As you enter the Harmony Barber Shop, the first thing you’ll probably notice is it’s very tiny. There’s not a whole lot of room with only 3 chairs with 3 barbers. It has old fashioned charm to it complete with black and white flooring, tile ceiling and ornately carved wooden mirrors.

My daughter was seated in the chair soon after we arrived and she wasn’t too sure about what was about to happen. I could see her lip start to tremble and tears welling up in her eyes. Diane who was cutting her hair had it all under control. She was calm and patient and began putting Mickey stickers on my daughter’s dress and blankie to distract her and then gave her a bottle of bubbles. Bubbles always make my daughter smile so any fear she had was forgotten in no time.

While my daughter was getting her first haircut, my son had mentioned he wanted to get his hair styled with gel as he had seen some kids sporting at the parks previously. They were no longer offering colored gel but he did get a pretty funky “do” with regular gel and “pixie dust”.

Once my daughter’s hair had been cut, Diane handed us her freshly cut locks which were placed in a white mesh bag complete with sparkles sealed with a Mickey sticker. She was also given a certificate proclaiming that her first haircut was at the Harmony Barber Shop and an adorable Mickey Ear Hat with “My 1st Haircut” embroidered on the back. Cutest first haircut keepsake ever!

I highly recommend a visit to the Harmony Barber Shop, particularly for a child’s first haircut. It will be an experience you won’t forget and you’ll get to take home some cute souvenirs from the occasion.

Fall into Fun at Disney’s Magic Kingdom

Walt Disney World may be located in an area best known for its sunshine and palm trees, but when the summer season comes to an end, The Magic Kingdom becomes a wonderland filled with the sights, sounds, and smells of fall. Over a three day period, an army of cast members brings the season of fall to life and introduces a cornucopia of decorations, treats, and merchandise that make fall a truly beautiful time to visit The Magic Kingdom

Fall is in the air from the moment visitors arrive at The Magic Kingdom. Candy corn-esque banners, pumpkins, and scarecrows welcome guests as they arrive at the park. Once guests step onto Main Street, they feel transported to a hometown fall that includes wreaths of fall leaves and pumpkins that look like everyone’s favorite mouse. Every lamp post, garden, and building on Main Street is adorned with fabulous fall colors. Even some of the characters are dressed for the season. Duffy Bear, a favorite of many visitors, can often be seen this time of year wearing his adorable pumpkin costume.

The beautiful decorations are not the only sign that fall has arrived at The Magic Kingdom. Fall and Halloween treats are plentiful this time of year. For many people, the fall holiday season is more about treats than tricks, and The Magic Kingdom provides a spellbinding mix of holiday treats that will satisfy even the most discerning sweet tooth. Specialty apples that look like Mickey jack-o-lanterns, Mickey Mouse Rice Krispie treats decorated in candy corn colors, and cookies and cupcakes with Halloween decorations are just a few of the mouth watering snacks guests can find during the fall holiday season. Halloween themed popcorn containers hold one of The Magic Kingdom’s most delicious snacks and can be used later as adorable trick-or-treat buckets. The glory of fall is evident in bounty of fall snacks available at The Magic Kingdom.

Non-edible fall treats are also available throughout the park. Fall themed mugs, glow sticks, and trick-or-treat bags are available, as well as Halloween themed t-shirts and pins. Even the mouse ears get a special fall theme to match the season. Guests can take a little bit of the fall magic home with them when they purchase these holiday themed items.
