    I was planning to go here during our trip this month.

    Has anyone used it?

    Is it for kids mainly?

    I haven't used it but I know lots of people who have. No it's definitely not just for kids :D

    You will need to make a reservation though, I don't think you can just walk up :unsure:

    Definitely not just for kids. I've had mine done there several times. It does get quite busy quite fast. However, I've never needed a reservation nor were they available. If this has changed I'm not aware.

    It's for anyone who doesn't mind having their hair cut in a massively popular place with loads of people looking on! Unless something has changed, it's first come first served, and it's on you to know your place in line, and not on the hairdressers to keep track.

    This is one of the places they NEED reservations, but there isn't anyone to do it. The hairdressers work nonstop and barely have enough time to cash one person out before they have to start on another person. They do a beautiful job with kids. They really get into the experience.

    Word to the wise. Do NOT do the hair paint unless you want it coming off on anything that touches it no matter how lightly. It makes a wicked mess. It's great fun for about 20 minutes. :sorry:

    We've been going there since we started at Disney and have never once had them take an appointment or make one. How does one go about making an appointment here?
