    Dapper Dan's - get a shave?

    We're off to Orlando in May this year from the UK. I remember listening to the Dapper Dan's sing on Mainstreet on our last trip.

    I'd love to start my day off in the park with an old fashioned close shave. Can you still get a shave there? Can you book? If so, how far in advance? Would it be best to book now or are you likely to be able to get in if you speak to Guest Relations on the morning?

    Unfortunately, the barber shop only gives haircuts. Reservations aren't necessary.

    I bet there is a barber shop somewhere in Orlando that still gives straight razor shaves. It stinks how most barbershops don't do that anymore. Straight razor shaves are heavenly.

    Except for the part where a guy holds a sharp razor near or on your throat.

    I do recommend getting a haircut at the barbershop on Main Street! The barbers are interesting to talk with.

    It's also supposed to be a good place to take your kid for his or her first haircut.

    And if you can get away from your party and they have an opening, it's funny to get a haircut and see if your family members notice.

    The barbershop on Main Street should be mentioned in every Disneyland vs. WDW debate. It's great!

    Getting a hair cut on main street is awesome. If you are looking for a straight razor shave in Orlando, there is on off Sandlake that Shaq uses.

    Re: Dapper Dan's - get a shave?

    I Googled couple of good barbershops in Orlando that have some nice reviews and they provide straight razor shaves.

    Yes, the neck part is enough to get anyone nervous, but if the guy is doing it right, there's nothing to worry about.

    I agree that the barbers in the Main Street Barbershop are quite interesting. i remember getting my haircut there a few times while I was a CP. They pick some cool people to work there.

    Dapper Dan's actually does do shaves, it's just that Dapper Dan's is the barber shop at Disneyland Paris. The Magic Kingdom is home to the Harmony Barber Shop.
