It’s been a week since my last trip to Walt Disney World Resort…and knowing it will be some time before my next trip back, I need to find ways to keep the Disney magic alive while home! One thing I like to do is visit my local Disney Store…which happens to be in Times Square!
This store does a tremendous job of making you feel your visit is special! When they first open the doors in the morning they put on a song and dance number to welcome the waiting guests!
Then, they select one family to be the “official store openers” and turn the special Disney key – last time we went our family was picked!!
You even get a free smaller version of the key to take home with you! This one’s going on our Christmas tree!
The Times Square Disney Store is amazing! They are always having interactive contests – just listen for announcements while you’re in the store and play along!
They have NYC themed merchandise.
A HUGE HUGE selection of the cutest things!
Look at what you get to experience while riding the escalator to the 2nd floor…be sure to check out the branches for some hidden Disney friends!
Half of the upstairs could be considered “Princess Central”!
This magic mirror comes alive and greets you with fun messages!
There’s an area with a huge screen where you can help choose what’s being shown! There’s also a table where I’ve seen them have art supplies layed out for children.
If you are a Princess Elena fan – they are fully stocked on her products!
I love the size and detail of the store décor!
And of course…the shopping bag – you have to bring yourself something home!!
