Baby’s first haircut is a momentous occasion. I remember what a big day it was when we took my son for his first haircut. For a Disney fan, I can’t think of a more magical place to have baby’s first haircut then at the Magic Kingdom. Disney knows this too that’s why they have a special package to commemorate baby’s first haircut in true Disney fashion. Unfortunately for me, we didn’t take our first trip to Walt Disney World until he was two and a half and he already had his “first haircut” at this point. Actually he had quite a few by then but I was determined to make sure my daughter had her first haircut at Walt Disney World. When we attended the Disney Social Media Moms Conference last May she was only 7 months old at the time but I had to have this experience with her while we were there and I’m so glad I did.
This is one of the most overlooked offerings at the parks in my opinion. I couldn’t believe how many Disney “fans” didn’t know about this experience. So many friends messaged me and commented that they had no idea Disney World offered this package. If you’re planning a trip to Walt Disney World and are traveling with your little one, this is one package I suggest you book! You’ll treasure the memories of baby’s first haircut for a lifetime.
In the midst of all my planning, somehow I forgot to make an appointment to get this done. I make appointments for everything and don’t chance walk-ins when we go to Disney World. Especially if it’s something I really want to experience. Thankfully they do take walk in appointments so we headed over to the Magic Kingdom after baby’s nap to see what they had available. We had a little wait, about 7 people ahead of us, but since some people weren’t there when their name was called, it moved quick.
Our barber was the greatest. She put Mickey Mouse stickers on the baby’s feet and outfit to keep her occupied and distracted while she gave her a quick trim. I was worried that because she was so young she might not have a magical time but she was quite amused with her stickers and sat just fine.
Once her haircut was over, the cutest little set of Mickey Ears were placed on her head for a quick photo opp. I wish I knew about this experience with my son when he was younger. It made a magical trip even more magical. We’ll have these memoires to treasure for a lifetime.
Here are some of the common questions I get asked about the package:
Where can I get this done?
The Baby’s 1st Haircut package is offered at the Harmony Barber Shop in Magic Kingdom. Tucked away in the corner, it’s easy to miss. When you enter Magic Kingdom, it will be on the left hand side of Main Street, past City Hall and right past the firehouse.
Do I need an appointment?
I highly suggest making an appointment. I did not (I know, I know what was I thinking) so they do take walk in appointments but we did have to wait. To make an appointment call (407) 939-7529.
The haircut package comes with “My 1st Haircut” Mickey Ears, a cute certificate and a pixie dusted pouch to hold baby’s hair clippings.
How much does it cost?
The package price was $24.95 and well worth every penny. I would have paid a lot more than that for the experience.
If you’re looking for a magical experience for your little one who may be too young to experience The PIrates’s League or the Bibbity Boppoity Boutique this is the perfect experience.
