    Kevin on how sometimes the little things mean a lot, discuss it here...

    Good article. I'm glad that, as a frequent visitor, you and your family are able to experience what some of us "once-every-coupla-years" visitors feel about WDW.

    I'd be interested in your views on the Pirates League make-overs as, price aside, the reviews have been enthusiastic and apparently the theming and attention to detail are very good.

      Loved the article. I agree that the barber shop is one of the last quaint things still on Main Street USA. Now that I recall, I don't think I've seen the double deck buses on Main Street in a very long time.

        I have that very same certificate with my grandson's name on it in a scrapbook from our 1997 trip to Disney World. The barber shop was in a different location at that time. If I am remembering correctly, it was way at the other end of Main Street near Crystal Palace. I think it's new location is perfect. I usually stop there myself for a trim.

        First come, first served. It is fun to have your own hair trimmed, and fun to watch the other people getting their "special disney sprinkles and gel". I have even done that myself.

        There's still a lot of magic to be found, if you just stop long enough before you run down Main Street.

        Great article.

          I'm not entirely sure, but I don't think the barber shop has moved since the place opened. Am I wrong?

            Oh no, I am definitely sure. It was not in the corner of Town Square where it now sits. I'll have to find a 1997 map, but I am 100% sure of this fact.

            I found my 1997 map, but it does not show the location of the Barber Shop. I wish that I had saved my Birnbaum Book from back then, because that is where I discovered that there was a barbershop at the Magic Kingdom. It was our grandson's first trip to the Magic Kingdom, as well as ours, and getting the haircut was a whole lot of fun.

              I couldn't agree more. We go to Disneyland maybe twice a month (from Las Vegas) and when I talk about what needs improvement in the park, it's not that I am nit-picking, it's because I love my park, and I want to see it taken proper care of.

                That was just the sweetest story, Kevin! Very respectful towards the monorail pilo. I've never been to WDW, but I'm glad they have the barbershop, too!

                    Kevin, I've read many of your articles and that was by far my favorite!
                    Thank you!

                    And I liked getting a haircut on Main Street. When I was young I split off from my family and got a haircut without telling them. Then when we reunited I had the silent pleasure of watching one relative notice and argue with the others about whether or not I got a haircut.

                        What a really sweet story!
                        Good morning, son
                        In twenty years from now
                        Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                        And I can tell you 'bout today
                        And how I picked you up and everything changed
                        It was pain
                        Sunny days and rain
                        I knew you'd feel the same things...

                          Thank you, Kevin!

                          That was a sweet story... Hopefully, I'll get a chance to get my haircut there next Spring.

                            No barbershop in DL. I vaguely remember that Walt wanted one (just like
                            the lingerie shop), but I don't remember it was there for the opening.

                            If memory serves, DLP has one as well.

                              Great article Kevin, but I don't think there's anything wrong with being critical. As academics, we're trained to criticize everything; challenge every line of reasoning even if it means we're the only ones paddling against the tide. That's part of what differentiates your writing from other styles. Despite what people might say (you're too negative, etc.), if you did listen to all their criticisms (how can you 'criticize' criticism without yourself becoming the same beast, although I digress) and reacted your style to it, you'd become just another blip on the radar screen; you'd lose your competitive advantage. I look forward to reading stuff that I don't always agree with.
