In March 2020, in response to the growing global coronavirus pandemic, The Walt Disney Company made the painful but necessary decision to close its domestic theme parks and its theme parks abroad. For the first time in history, fans were living in a world devoid of a single operational Disney Park. It was a strange time for Disney and for the world as a whole.

The four theme parks at the Walt Disney World Resort remained closed for almost four months, and when they reopened, it was with a very limited capacity and a brand-new tool for crowd control called the Park Pass Reservation System. (Many of us thought it would be a temporary tool, but alas, it has endured for more than 2 years now, and according to Disney, it’s here to stay–at least for now.)

When the parks at Disney World finally reopened, many Guest experiences, rides, entertainment and other attractions were not available, and since that time, thanks to a planned phased reopening of the parks, the majority of those experiences has reopened. But one experience at Magic Kingdom remained unavailable until Sunday.

Magic Kingdom’s Harmony Barber Shop, located at Town Square, hadn’t welcomed a Guest through its doors in more than two years. But on Sunday, the shop finally reopened to Guests.

For some Disney World fans, the experience is a rite of passage. Harmony Barber Shop offers haircuts to men, women, and children–but with a bit of pixie dust and Disney Magic. At this time, adult Guests can get a haircut for $21, and children can get a haircut for $20. The Harmony Barber Shop also offers the My First Haircut experience for little ones. For $28, a child can get a haircut, a Mickey ears hat, a keepsake lock of hair, and a certificate commemorating the experience.

Male Guests who are feeling a bit “scruffy” can enjoy a beard trim at Harmony Barber Shop for $8.

But if you’re hoping to experience a haircut at Magic Kingdom’s barber shop, Disney recommends making a reservation in advance. Harmony Barber Shop does have a limited number of walk-in appointments available each day, but they are only available on a first-come, first-served basis.

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
