Walt Disney World: Baby’s First Haircut at Harmony Barber Shop

The very last thing we did on our Disney World vacation was to get Scarlett’s First Haircut at Harmony Barber Shop. This little barber shop on Main Street at the Magic Kingdom offers a first haircut package for $18. Since Scarlett had never had a haircut, we thought this would be a great place to get one! We were able to get a last minute appointment right before we left home so we didn’t have to wait at all.

Scarlett was a little nervous, but the stylists must be used to this since they immediately gave her a spinning Minnie Mouse and about a thousand stickers.

This stuff kept her quite happy while they snipped off her baby hair and made a nice even style.

They topped off her cute new cut with a pair of Mickey Ears that have “First Haircut” embroidered on the back. So adorable!!

Of course, this was not the end. After seeing all the girls around the park who had been given Princess Make-overs at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, Scarlett was eager to get her own “Princess hair.” Not a problem! The stylist put her hair in an updo decorated with “Pixie Dust.” (She did wonder why she couldn’t fly with pixie dust in her hair – we just told her she only got a little bit.)

The whole thing was quick and fun, with Scarlett ending up looking pretty cute in the end. They gave us a first haircut certificate and the little bits of hair they cut off were put into a Mickey bag for us to keep. I’m so glad we heard about this special service. It was a great experience!


Princess Scarlett was quite happy with her new look!


Disney World Character Greeting: Meeting Princesses in Town Square

We were able to get a Fastpass for both the Mickey meet & greet and the town square princesses at the same time. So right after Mickey we prepared to meet Cinderella, Aurora and Rapunzel.

Scarlett adores her Rapunzel wedding dress, so I put it on her right before we went inside. Sadly, she wore it for about two minutes and the whole time, she looked like this:

After we took the dress off of her and convinced her we were about to see the REAL Rapunzel, she cheered up. Luke was having none of the Princess meetings, so he hung back while Scarlett got lots of royal hugs and photos.

First up was Cinderella. She was so beautiful!


Princess hugs!

The next princess was Aurora. Scarlett loves Sleeping Beauty and for some reason, meeting her inspired Scarlett to dance!

She is quite the twirler and kept the crowd entertained. Then, another hug and another picture. I like Aurora’s pose – so cute!

Finally, we met Rapunzel. Scarlett was very proud she had on a Rapunzel shirt, and also had to show off her Cinderella sneakers. Of course, Rapunzel notice the purple marker spots where Scarlett had drawn on herself in the car. Oh well, at least she was color coordinated.


Tangled is my favorite Disney movie so I was super happy to get this picture. Just LOVE the hair!


So, Scarlett went from being The Grumpiest Princess to a happy little girl. Even though she was a little shy, she had a great time.


Disney World Character Greeting: Meeting Mickey in Town Square

After driving from Grandma’s house in South Carolina, we arrived at our hotel around 5pm. We checked in, unpacked the car very quickly, and made our way to the Magic Kingdom by 6pm (the park had Extra Magic Hours that night so we got a good six hours there that night!)

Right away, we picked up some Fastpasses for the Town Square Character meet & greets.

First up was the main mouse, himself – Mickey!

Being the first character meeting, this was a bit awkward for the kids.


Luke was actually a little frightened. I feel bad looking at this picture – he looks like he’s trying to escape!


With help from Mickey and his handlers, we did manage to calm everyone down long enough for a family photo. A reluctant family, but a photo nonetheless.


It did take Luke several days to warm up to the characters, though. Fortunately, Scarlett liked them and wanted more. On to the Princesses!
