PASADENA, Calif. — On March 28, Disney Store will celebrate its 25th anniversary by giving the first 250 guests at each location silver commemorative Mickey Mouse ears. In addition, Disney Store will host a variety of family fun activities throughout the day, including Disney trivia, games, a dance party and more. As an added bonus, guests will receive 25% off purchases made in store and online at DisneyStore.com for the entire day. Although known for delivering “the best 30 minutes of a child’s day,” Disney Store has created magical memories for guests of all ages for 25 magical years.
“Disney Store’s 25th anniversary is about celebrating our guests, our products, and the memorable experiences we create for families every day,” said Jim Fielding, president of Disney Store worldwide, “We take great pride in delivering on the Disney promise of excellence, and look forward to bringing the magic of Disney to our guests around the world for many years to come.”
In 1987, Disney launched the entertainment retail model, by opening the first Disney Store in Glendale, California. In 2004, Children's Place took over operations, only to give them back to Disney four years later. Today, there are more than 350 Disney Store locations worldwide.
As part of the celebration, Disney Store created a commemorative video featuring guests who shared their favorite videos and photos of Disney Store memories over the years. Exclusive products inspired by Disney stories sets Disney Store apart, and a collection of 25th anniversary merchandise has been released with new artwork featuring a collage of favorite Disney characters.
