In Magic Kingdom, there is a little shop on Main Street called Harmony Barber Shop where both kids and adults can get their haircut any day of the year. It’s such a great experience, and if you have to get your haircut anyway, why not do it at the Most Magical Place on Earth?! Here’s everything you need to know about it…
Often there is an assumption that Walt Disney World is only for families or groups or that there are a limited number of things to do for couples at Disney. But after living in the Walt Disney World Resorts for a year, we can tell you, there are so many amazing things Disney offers for couples that many people don’t know about, so we want to share some of those with you today.
One of the more unique ways to enjoy as many attractions as possible in a day at Walt Disney World is by booking a VIP Tour. VIP Tours are a great way to enjoy one or all four Disney parks with friends and family without waiting in long lines. We have gone on several VIP Tours and done different things each time, so we’ll share information as well as our thoughts and ideas for these below.
The Villains After Hours event is a special summer event at Magic Kingdom that transforms the park into a villains paradise with a special villains stage show, unique villains Magic Shots, scary desserts, dragon Maleficent roaming the park breathing fire, face painting, and rides slightly changed for the evening. There’s also all-you-can-eat Mickey bars, ice cream sandwiches, bottled soda, and popcorn. You’ll definitely want to read more about this unique summer event.
One of the newest additions for kids at one of the Walt Disney World Resorts is Captain Hook’s Pirate Crew at Disney’s Beach Club Resort. In just under a month, the recreation area at Beach Club was turned into a pirate cove with hidden treasure, a scavenger hunt complete with escape-room type clues, snacks and dinner, a movie area, crafts, a boat ride, and lots of games.
Disney Fun Runs are activities at some of the Walt Disney World Resorts that allows guests to walk or run between one and two miles in the morning around the resort to earn a prize. The prizes vary from water bottles to headphones to pins to beignets (yes, that does say beignets), and the fun runs are some of the funnest activities we’ve done at the resorts. There are signs and cast members throughout the course showing which way to go, and the cast members cheer you on at each point. It’s such a fun way to start the day and see how pretty the resorts are in the morning.
At some of the Walt Disney World Resorts, there are scavenger hunts guests can do for free and win a prize. The prizes all vary based on the resort, but these are always fun and a great activity to do on a relaxing resort day, especially if it’s raining. When you’re finished with the scavenger hunt, you return to the front desk to claim your prize.
At Walt Disney World, there are so many fun activities and things to do that don’t cost you extra money at the resorts. Of course there are always the fun paid activities too (make your own Mickey ears, paint your own ceramics, fun runs, arcades, boat rentals, and more), but for this blog post, we’re going to focus on the free things you can do and see at the Disney Resorts.
Between making FastPass+ reservations, checking your MyDisneyExperience app for wait times and your dining reservation, texting, posting to social media, and playing the DisneyPlay app, your phone battery doesn’t stand a chance in the Disney parks. Before you know, that battery icon will turn red, and you’ll be looking for a place to charge your phone. There’s a very simple solution Disney has that makes charging your phone convenient and easy: fuel rod stations.
Every major holiday is celebrated in some way by each of the Walt Disney World resorts. Some have activities as simple as having holiday-themed games while others go all out with decorations, costume contests, and free candy and prizes. Halloween is no exception to this tradition, and we went to every Disney resort to find out what they were doing to celebrate this fun, candy-filled day. We’ll start with the Value Resorts and go up from there, ending with the villas.
