Did you hear the news? Disney Store simultaneously unlocked imagination to two new stores in Canada yesterday: one in Square One Shopping Centre in Mississauga, ON, and one in Metropolis at Metrotown in Burnaby, BC! During the festivities, a live simulcast allowed both locations to celebrate together and see all the fun and magic happening in the other store!
At Square One a host of Disney Family Channel stars, including Azer Greco with mom Lauren Holly, helped us unlock imagination to the newly-designed store and special guest cast members from Wingin’ It and What’s Up Warthogs were also there. Celebrities from across television and music including Diego Gomes , winner of The Next Star, celebrated with guests, too! More than 500 guests lined up to get free Mickey ears and watch the opening ceremony and live simulcast. In Metropolis, Family Channel stars Jessica Holmes and Sydney Imbeau were our special guests and more than 200 guests lined up to receive their free Mickey ears, watched the opening ceremony and live simulcast! Guests also had the opportunity to take pictures with Mickey & Minnie (Vancouver) and Rapunzel & Flynn (Toronto). Thank you to all of our guests who came and celebrated the opening with us! Yesterday was one Disney Day Canada is sure not to forget!
