    Exclamation Parades, barber shop, value resorts

    Hey all! Remember me? It's been a while... Too long! Anyway, planning on another trip to Disney World. I was wondering how disney guests get selected to be in the parades? Is Harmony Barber shop still open? Is there any Disney Value resort that allows you to have 5 guests in a room? When does Disney come out with their deals for 2007? We're going in March 2007.

    Thanks in advance!

    Well, this IS March 2007, and the month is almost over Did you maybe mean 2008? Or maybe you meant May?? The Barber shop on Main Street is still open- not sure if this is Harmony Barber shop, though.. Hmm.

    And are you referring to being Grand Marshals in parades (the beginning of the parade) or throughout the parades, such as at Jammin' Jungle Parade?

    Yes, Harmony Barber Shop is still open (and it is the one on Main Street). You can have 5 people in a Value Resort as well as long as one of those people is a little one ( I believe it's still under the age of 3).

    most value resorts dont have suites and usually still accomadate 4... I think my idea works the best haha.. Target has air mattress for like 20 bucks, but make sure its a twin because that is all that will fit

    All Star Music has the new Family Suites that accommodate up to 6 people. If you are willing to pay the price for one of those, maybe you could look into the price of Port Orleans - Riverside which could sleep 5 utulizing the trundle bed. Just a thought.

    The Barber shop is still open, just either get there early or plan to wait as it is first come first serve. And the waiting area could be a bit deceiving as I have come to find that usually one person waits while the other parent takes the child out and about until its their time. So what may look like 1or 2 people ahead of you really turns into 4 or 5. The haircuts are running around $16.00 and the styles for girls or boys are $5.00

    For the boys, they can put gel in their hair and spike it, add some glitter and ear shaped confetti. In January my two sons had mickey heads put on the back of their heads with gel, one had his head spiked and then they had glitter put it in. My 4 daughters all had their hair put up, teased a bit, and lots of glitter and castle shaped confetti. For the price of $5.00 I was able to make them all happy and they got lots of attention from cast members as well as other guests.

    My children and I were very happy with how they walked out of the barbership. As far as saving money, well that was a huge benefit for us.
