When you are in the Magic Kingdom, just look for the red and white striped Barber Pole on Main Street and you will find an authentic Victorian barber shop complete with old fashioned barber chairs and décor. For less than $20, you can get a hair cut, beard or mustache trim. If you want an eye-catching Disney-do, a colorful not-so-hidden Mickey can be applied to your hair with gel and glitter for an additional charge.
A child’s first hair cut can become a magical memory at the Harmony Barber Shop. For just $25, this special milestone can be commemorated with a cute certificate and Mickey Ears stitched with “First Haircut.” They even wrap up your child’s locks of hair along with some pixie dust for prosperity.
You can book a haircut 180 days in advance by calling (407) 939-7529 – ask for the Harmony Barber Shop. They are open seven days a week and reservations are strongly suggested. The least busy times are early in the day or during the parade. If you’re lucky the Dapper Dans, a barbershop quartet, will stop by to harmonize while you are there.
Arrrg-uably one of the Magic Kingdom’s best immersive experiences for guests. Mark your course for Adventureland where, next to the Pirates of the Caribbean, boys and girls age 3 and older — after receiving a special pirate name and reciting a secret pirate oath — are inducted into the sacred Pirates League. “Real” pirate masters tell tall tales of the seven seas as they transform landlubbers into swashbuckling buccaneers.
This Pirates League First Mate Package costs $44.95 and includes Choice of Facial Effect, Reversible Bandana, Earring & Eye Patch, Sword & Sheath, Temporary Tattoo, Unique Pirate Coin Necklace, Pirates Key and Pirates League Bag.
Additional Pirate League packages including Captain Hook Deluxe, Empress, Mermaid, Uma, Skulls and Scurry, and Scurry Glam are available from $18.95 – $99.00. Prices subject to change. Call (407) WDW-Crew to reserve up to 180 days in advance.
The ultimate Royal makeover awaits your special Princess or Brave Knight in Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom or Once Upon a Toy store in Disney Springs Marketplace. Watch as your little one is magically transformed into Disney Royalty with the help of their very own Fairy Godmother-in-Training.
The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is extremely popular and reservations are strongly advised. Call (407) WDW-STYLE or (407) 939-7895 at least 180 days in advance for reservations and details.

Call 407-939-7727 to book an appointment. Get ready for a magical hair day!
A unique souvenir from your Disney vacation to wear home is a hair wrap. Similar to hair braiding, brightly colored floss is wound around individual sections of hair to create a rainbow-like pattern. Beads, shells, etc. can be added for a unique look.
You can find hair wrap stations at most Disney resort pools and water parks including Pop Century, Art of Animation, Animal Kingdom Lodge, Polynesian, Wilderness Lodge, Yacht and Beach Club, Port Orleans Riverside, Caribbean Beach, BoardWalk, Grand Floridian, Typhoon Lagoon, and Blizzard Beach.
If you have time to get your hair wrapped at a theme park, look for a booth in Adventureland near the Pirates of the Caribbean in the Magic Kingdom as well as Island Mercantile on Discovery Island in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. For the most up-to-date info on where to find hair wraps, ask the concierge in your resort lobby for current locations.
Whether you’re having a good or bad hair day, it’s always the perfect day to go to Walt Disney World!
