How to Get a First Haircut at Disney’s Magic Kingdom!

Did you know you can get a hair cut while vacationing at Magic Kingdom? Many people don’t realize there’s a fully functioning barber shop located on Main Street, and it’s called the Harmony Barber Shop. Head to the left side as you walk through the entrance gates and look for the striped barber shop pole, close to the Firehouse and a gift shop called Disney Clothiers. Guests of all ages can get a haircut here, but they offer a special package just for first haircuts.

Most parents are well aware that convincing a small child to sit for a hair cut can be really difficult… if not impossible. First haircuts are the Harmony Barber Shop’s specialty, and young Magic Kingdom guests who receive their first haircut here are treated to surprises from “pixie dust” and bubbles to Mickey Mouse stickers. They also receive an extra-special “My 1st Haircut” set of Mouse Ears and a certificate.

Have you priced Mouse Ear hats lately? This sounds like a fantastic deal for $25, with the haircut and hat combination plus all the extras. Cast Members may keep your child so distracted, there may not be time for the tears usually associated with a first haircut.

Julie sent us this photo of her daughter, and she told us about her experience taking a toddler to the Harmony Barber Shop. “Here is my daughter Anne getting her first real haircut at the Harmony Barber Shop. I am the one with all the stickers. The Cast Member who worked with Anne was great, keeping her distracted the whole time, and she did a good job. Who can complain about a haircut AND Mickey ears for the price of just a haircut somewhere else? We did the first appointment time of the day, so my son got a picture and an autograph with Daisy just outside during the wait. I am hoping to take their baby sister for her first cut there next spring.”

Jeanette took an even younger child for a first haircut, and look how happy she is! Actually they both look pleased. “Here is my 5-month-old daughter getting her first hair cut in December! We had an appointment first thing in the morning so she would be fed and happy. As we walked into the park, we grabbed a Disney photographer and they documented the whole thing for us. She cried for a few minutes but stopped after they showed her a light up Minnie. The package came with a certificate and a hat!”

There’s some information you need to know before you go, so there’s no confusion.

**Water may be sprayed on hair if needed during styling, but no shampooing will be provided. With that in mind, your child should arrive with clean, dry hair.

**Guests under 17 years of age must be accompanied by an adult who is 18 years of age or older.

**A $10 charge will apply for no-shows or cancellations within one day of your reservation.

**Advanced reservations are recommended and can be made by calling (407) WDW-PLAY or (407) 939-7529. A limited number of walk-in appointments are available on a first-come, first-serve basis each day. Harmony Barbershop hours will not vary in accordance with Extra Magic Hours.

These instructions can apply for adult as well, because adults can also receive haircuts.

A Quick Tip: the best times to go for a haircut without an appointment are the first thing in the morning or during any parades.

Imagine your sweet baby sitting in one of these prime seats, receiving their first hair cut from a state-licensed cosmetologist.
