What does harmony look like? For some, it’s the sound of dazzling fireworks lighting up the night sky or the tune of their favorite Disney song that unlocks a childhood memory.
For actors at Magic Kingdom Park, Harmony sounds like the familiar shearing bang of hair shears returning to Main Street, USA
Yesterday morning, the actors who call Harmony hair salon “home” were filled with pure delight at a special grand opening ceremony for the store’s grand reopening.
“We finally feel like we’re all at home,” says Holly, Stylist at Harmony Barber Shop. “We did it and we are here! It’s the last piece of a classic puzzle.
While guests of all ages are excited to return to the boutique’s quaint interior and timeless experience, stylists can be even more excited to not only return to the roles they love, but also to connect with guests into the classic nostalgia of a timely hair salon experience. .
“I just couldn’t imagine celebrating the 50e Walt Disney World Resort anniversary without Harmony Barber Shop. Today is a day of two and a half years of preparation, and it’s a very special moment as the last Main Street, USA location reopens at Magic Kingdom Park,” said Melissa Valiquette, Vice President of Magic Kingdom Park. .
Since Magic Kingdom park opened in 1971, Harmony Barber Shop greeted guests at the Main Street, USA entrance and its iconic chairs provided priceless souvenirs for guests.
Fans of this one-of-a-kind experience know that the real charm of Harmony Barber Shop has always been the friendly banter of the venue’s cast. Behind every first haircut or fresh cut, there’s a cast member who makes sure the experience is a memory that will last a lifetime.
“It’s amazing that even though time flies, I recognize that customers return year after year. Together, we share special memories with each repeat visit,” smiles Kassandra, Coordinator at Harmony Barber Shop.
Whether today is their first day making sure guests look flawless in the park or their 100th stylist appointments, our cast members carry on a legacy of unique and personalized magic. 50 years old.
