Did you know there was a working barber shop inside the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World? The Harmony Barber Shop was first located on the old Center Street end of the Emporium, but when that was enclosed and turned into more retail space, the barber shop moved to the space between the trolley barn and the emporium and there it’s lived until today.

It’s a popular spot for both guests and cast members alike. A lot of “baby’s first haircut” magical moments everyday and a very unique experience for everyone. It’s the only location my son has ever had his hair cut at.

The good news is the experience is not going anywhere, the bad news is there will be a 6-8 week extensive remodel of the location starting February 15th. The new location should have a better guest flow while keeping the turn of the century Main Street USA look and feel.
