This post is cracking me up as I edit the pictures. In true Devon fashion, I am writing this months (okay, almost a year) after our trip. Landon had all of, oh, ten hairs when we took him for his first haircut at the Harmony Barber Shop (located right on the square on Main Street USA in Magic Kingdom). The kid is now sporting a wild curly mop of hair!
We took him to the barber shop for his first haircut purely for the sentimental aspect of “getting a first haircut in Disney.” And in true Disney World fashion, this was a really fun experience for our whole family.
A few things to know before you go:
- The Harmony Barber Shop DOES take reservations and they book up QUICK. Call 407-939-7529 as early as 180 days ahead of your preferred appointment date. I did call a couple of months before our trip and the shop was fully booked. HOWEVER – they DO take walk-in customers, so if you plan to be in Magic Kingdom for while that day, definitely try to put your name on the waiting list. We only waited about 30 minutes.
- Baby’s 1st Haircut package is $18 (as of 2/2015). You get the haircut, a certificate, a little pouch for a lock of hair and my favorite – Mickey Mouse ears with “My First Haircut” embroidered on the back!
- Hair is dampened with water, not washed.
- This is ridiculously cute and definitely an event to document – bring your camera!
After a 30 minute wait or so, it was Landon’s turn for his haircut! He received a warm welcome from the cast member who would be cutting his hair. He was a tad apprehensive to sit in the chair, so plenty of Mickey stickers and other light-up toys were on hand!
So cute! So fun! Totally worth every penny of that $18, in my opinion. LOL! Here come his ears –
Totally cool freebie: when Landon was finished getting his ten hairs trimmed, the cast member asked Lily if she would like some “pixie dust” in her hair. She pretty much leapt into the chair and before we could blink, some large shards of brightly colored paper were dotting her head. She was quite pleased.
Here is a look at the certificate and little pouch Landon’s lock of hair wrapped up inside –
Kids were happy, parents were happy, and off to lunch we went! The Baby’s 1st Haircut package at Harmony Barber Shop was such a wonderful experience and I would absolutely recommend it!
