Harmony Barber Shop at the Magic Kingdom

The Harmony Barber shop at the Magic Kingdom is hidden in the corner of Main Street.  Adults and children alike can receive haircuts.
 Although small and quaint, Harmony Barber Shop performs between 350 and 400 services a week. Haircuts for children age 12 and under are priced at just $15. Another popular treatment for kids as well as kids-at-heart is colored hair gel, which costs $7.50. Of course there are also services for grown-ups to enjoy. An adult haircut costs $19. Beard and mustache trims are $10.
“First Haircuts” is the establishment’s specialty. Young Walt Disney World guests who receive their first haircut at the Magic Kingdom barbershop are treated to many delightful surprises, from “pixie dust” and bubbles to Mickey Mouse stickers, and an extra-special “My 1st Haircut” set of Mouse Ears and certificate. The “My 1st Haircut” special is priced at $18.

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party

This is a wonderful party to attend at the Magic Kingdom!  It requires a separate ticket but is definitely attending at least once.  The party happens on select nights in September and October.  You and your family can dress up, pick up candy, ride with no lines and see characters that normally are hard to find.  The Boo to You Parade and Hallowishes which is an awesome fireworks show are great additions as well.  I created a slide show to show you highlights of the night!

It sure has been awhile since I last posted.  Boy am I making up for lost time.  We recently went to WDW in late September and had a wonderful time!  We did a few things that we hadn't done before.  My nine year old son went to the Pirates League (see the post below). I took him to Disney Quest and we stayed at the brand new Art of Animation Resort.  I finally got my son on the Tower of Terror although my husband is still a hold out:-) We also attend the Mickey Not So Scary Party again this year and I will have a post about this soon.  Also check out the Mouseketeer Vacations Facebook page for discounts and news about new packages!


We stayed at the brand new WDW resort the Art of Animation Resort on our recent stay in September. My son chose the CARS resort but all of the resorts have a fun theme and are lots of fun!  Click on the link to take you straight to the WDW site to find out more!

On our trip to WDW in September my nine year old son did this and had a blast!  Even though this is a separate paid opportunity it is totally worth it.  All ages can experience this and fun can be had by the whole family.  If you have time on your next trip definitely check it out.
Pirates League Details
Begin your  transformation when you receive your Official Pirate Name as recorded from the leather-bound captain's log. Next, stop by the Muster Station and leave your old self behind as the Pirate Masters perform a marauder's makeover. Hear the ways of the scurvy sea dogs as they apply yer buccaneer beard, scars, earrings and eye patches. Or even be ye a boney pirate and wear yer skeleton on yer skin!
Once you have fully transformed, enter the Secret Room where your Pirate Portrait is taken for posterity and the Pirate Masters reveal their hidden treasure.
