Wednesday, December 1
When we got to Main Street, it was pretty empty. But we were fast approaching our reservation time and I didn’t want to lose our spot, so I didn’t stop for too many photos. I snapped a few and we had the photopass people take a few, but other than that, we just wanted to get inside and eat!
After breakfast we had time to ride Space Mountain using a Rider Switch pass (another post) and then we had to get to our hair cut at Harmony Barber Shop. This was not the experience we had the first time. I was glad we made reservations. There were at least 6-8 people in line for haircuts when we arrived. But, since I had an appointment, we got to go straight to the front of the line! That was awesome! The parents waiting continued to say “We were told you couldn’t make reservations… blah, blah, blah.” Tip: CALL DINING RESERVATIONS TO MAKE A HARMONY BARBER SHOP RESERVATION!! So besides being happy that I made reservations, there really wasn’t anything else that made me happy about this visit. The lady who cut C-man’s hair barely smiled and hardly talked. The haircut was horrible and C-man even sat still and behaved. I can understand a bad haircut on a 22 month old when they are fussy, squirming and not cooperating. But C-man did great. She was the bad one. Oh well. You win some, you lose some. We lost on this one. Overall, I’m still glad we did it and I have that memory with C-man.
Once I was over the haircut experience with C-man and JAG got the colored hair gel in his hair we were off again to check things off my “to do” list. I got C-mans “First Visit” button from Guest Relations and the rest of us got “I’m Celebrating” buttons since we were celebrating his first visit! Then we started down Main Street to head towards Liberty Square for silhouettes of the boys. On the way, we were distracted by Daisy Duck. The photo above is how C-man liked to approach the characters! From behind, on his own terms! We saw a few other “street performers” on Main Street and then saw a Silhouette dude on a side street off Main Street. We stopped there instead of going on to Liberty Square.
Again, not the same experience as before! This guy was just as talented and did a great job, but his attitude STUNK! He barely smiled and would only answer questions with one word answers or nods. I was disappointed in his attitude, but not his work. Another tip we learned was you can’t use Disney gift cards on silhouettes. They are independently owned and contracted with Disney to do their art. So, have cash on hand if you want a silhouette. I think the silhouettes were $8 a piece (you got 2 copies) and $8 for each of the cheap, oval, plastic frames.
