A new look for the Disney Store in Hawaii

I was there along with hundreds of others to witness the magical makeover. The first 250 guests were given Mickey Mouse ears and got to watch the ceremonial blowing of the conch shell to announce the arrival of a Kahu who performed a Hawaiian blessing. Mickey and Minnie Mouse and Jeff Zimmerman, the regional manager were also there to announce the opening.

Every morning the magic will start with a child who will have a chance to turn a large key that opens the store. What I really liked was the interactive shopping that was filled with technology-infused experiences for the children.  My daughter loved the Disney Princess castle with magic mirrors and the translucent trees with Disney animation.  There were even villains that came and kids in the store had to chase them away with Tinkerbell's help. My favorite part was how the cast interacted with the kids and involved them in the store.  There is a center area that kids can color, watch movie scenes, and play trivia games.  I think this is extra special for Hawaii families who get to shop and also experience some Disney fun! 
On June 2 at 9:30 a.m., Disney Store will celebrate the grand opening of the store. From 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. a meet and greet with Mickey and Minnie Mouse will take place at center stage, with an opportunity for guests to take photos with the characters.
