Harmony Barber Shop at Magic Kingdom – Now By Appointment Too!

We have learned that the Harmony Barber Shop located on Main Street USA at the Magic Kingdom has recently begun accepting appointments in advance. This marks the first time that we are aware of in the shop’s history that guests have been able to reserve a time in advance as opposed to simply walking up and waiting until a spot becomes available.

The shop serves guests daily from 9 am – 6 pm with cuts averaging to just below $20 per adult, or $14 for children 12 and under with a special ‘baby’s first haircut’ option available. According to the Disney Parks blog, the shop serves about 400 guests of the Walt Disney World resort each week.
