    Talking Did you know YOU could open the Disney Store?

    Yes, it's true! Any of the Re Imagined Disney stores offer this opportunity. It's really cool and you even get a free key to take home with you. You have to be the first one at the store (so arrive at least 15-30 min early) they do not take reservations and there is no age limit. So if you have kids or are just a big kid yourself I recommend it.

    Here's a link with more information!

    Re: Did you know YOU could open the Disney Store?

    I experienced this back in January at a local Disney Store. I had no idea, and walked in the store as they were opening the doors. I was told to wait outside until they unlocked the store's magic, or something to that effect. There was a gentleman who was waiting outside the store at the same time, and he volunteered to turn the key. Being that we were both adults and no children were present, and the employees were adults, it was a bit awkward.

    At first, I agreed that would have been pretty awkward! But then I was kind of curious how the Disney Stores go on about doing this and looked up a video on YouTube. After I saw it, I was like "... wait. I kind of want a cool key D:"

    ... don't judge me

    I just want the key cause it looks kind of cool!

    At first I thought this thread was about Disney franchising the Disney Store.

    Re: Did you know YOU could open the Disney Store?

    I saw the big key behind the counter at the Disney Store in Mission Viejo. Had no idea what it was for. Thanks for the info!
    I actually heard this said by a CM over the loud speakers at Big Thunder in 1995, "Please do not sit on the rocks. You will fall...and you will die."

    We've done this by accident. Ironically, I didn't have my daughter with me but I was the only one there. It was a bit awkward actually. However, we did take our daughter back and she loved it!

    All Disney Stores do this now, even the older stores (Different version than the new IP stores)

    Yes you can call your local Disney Store and ask them if they do it. If they do not do the magical opening they can let you know the closest one to you!
