    Arrive at 11:55 on 11/1, take ME & drop bags at AS Sports and then go to MK for haircuts. What time should I schedule appointments? Surprise trip just for haircuts "hurry up, we have haircuts, let's get on the plane" want to schedule as early

    Hi Kelsey, What a fun idea!

    I'd book your appointments for 3:30pm. It can take up to 2 hours to get from your plane to your Resort. This takes into account getting to the Magical Express counter, waiting for a motor coach, riding the approximately 30 minutes to Disney, and possibly stopping at other Resorts first to drop Guests off. Once you check in, you can store your bags, then head outside to wait for a bus to the Magic Kingdom. These come every 20 minutes or so, and if you just missed one, you'll be waiting a bit. Then you need to ride to the Magic Kingdom, get through the gates and head to the Harmony Barber Shop. It's best to give yourself a cushion just in case you are running late. If you arrive early, there is a chance they may be able to get you in ahead of time. Otherwise, you can browse the Emporium gift shop until it's time for your appointment.

    Enjoy your special Surprise trip! I've planned one for my children before too, and it is always very exciting,
