From meeting fabulous bloggers, to gaining valuable conference knowledge and having quality family time – the Disney Social Media Moms conference was an amazing experience! (I’m working on a wrap up post from all the great speakers. Stay tuned!) As Meg Crofton, President of the Walt Disney World Resort told attendees, Disney’s mission is “to make memories”. Thanks to our visit, my Maggie has a memory that will forever be a part of our family.
Maggie had her first haircut at the Walt Disney World Harmony Barber Shop on Main Street U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom!
There were a lot of tears and stickers involved, but Maggie finally has bangs and a perfect, little trim around her face. The Harmony Barbershop is located next to Town Hall on Main Street U.S.A. As you enter the Magic Kingdom, it is in the far left corner in the Town Square. I’ve been going to Disney my entire life and never knew it existed until Jessica at The Unemployed Mom shared the inside scoop on this post last week. (Thanks Jessica!)
Our barber, Michal told us he had been cutting hair at Disney World for 21 years! He was fantastic! While this barbershop specializes in first haircuts, anyone can get a new ‘do! Reservations are accepted, but not required. We didn’t have a reservation and only waited about five minutes. With all the excitement of the stickers, I’m not sure Maggie even realized she was getting a haircut!
Besides all the fun stickers, those getting their first haircut also receive a certificate to remember the big day, cute Mickey ears that say “First Haircut” (too bad Maggie refused to wear them!) and they save a few of her curls for mom too! Isn’t that just the coolest keepsake for a child? What a great memory to mark Maggie’s first trip to Disney World and her first haircut! I wish I could say my first haircut was at the Magic Kingdom! I’m so proud of her!
What special memories do you have of your visit to Disney World?
