The Disney Store's 25th Anniversary


by: Nick

On March 28th of 2012 The Disney Store celebrated it’s 25th Anniversary, and Barbie and I were there for the store’s opening, so we could score the special Mickey Ears that were being given out that day.

We arrived at our local mall at 9:30 am for the 10 am opening of the store, and the line was already in front of the store, and down a nearby hallway.

Still, we were probably about 30th in line. If you look closely towards the center of the photo, you’ll see Barbie waving.

About 9:45, a Cast Member started handing out vouchers to guests for their Mickey Ears.
Ears were given out to the first 250 guests.
To help celebrate, the Disney Store asked for photo submissions for a chance to appear on their billboard in Times Square, in New York City! You bet I submitted mine!


At 10, the store was unlocked by a young guest, and we were in! To see a Disney Store opening, please check out this post.

Me and my Ears!


Me and Mike, one of the wonderful Cast Members at our Disney Store.

As a special thank you, the Disney Store offered 25% off anything in the store, excluding gift cards and park passes, of course.

Within 20 minutes of submitting my photo, I got a confirmation email saying that my photo had been received, and to look for it on Times Square!

Here is the photo I received with the email:


Please stop back tomorrow to see some of the merchandise I bought.
