The first Disney Baby Store arrived yesterday at the Americana at Brand in Glendale, California. Celebrities, new moms and Disney characters were all on hand to celebrate! The premiere Disney Baby Store provides an exclusive array of products to help families celebrate baby's magical moments throughout the day. Magical Moments are highlighted throughout the store with playtime, bathtime, on-the-go, getting ready, mealtime, dressing baby, baby's firsts, and in the nursery. In addition to the first store, the Disney Baby online boutique launched yesterday and a selection of Disney Baby products is also available within Disney Store locations nationwide.
The day began with celebrity host Alison Sweeney (with kids Ben and Megan) and Disney Consumer Products president Bob Chapek officially revealing the store, with a little help from Winnie the Pooh and friends!
One of the highlights of the day was a performance by Blue Sky Riders (comprised of members Kenny Loggins, Georgia Middleman and Gary Burr). The band performed songs from their upcoming album as well as the Kenny Loggins classic "House at Pooh Corner" in honor of the Disney Baby Store opening.
Our special guests for the day were more than 20 expectant military moms with Operation Shower, a non-profit organization that supports military families by hosting baby showers to ease the stress of deployment. Disney teamed with Operation Shower to honor the new moms and their families by treating them to a magical baby shower and complimentary shopping experience in the new store.
Want to be a part of the Disney Baby Store opening celebration? This Saturday, September 8, we're continuing to welcome our new arrival by hosting a Grand Opening for the public at the Americana at Brand. At 10 a.m., we'll have a ribbon cutting in front of the store, and then from 12 to 4 p.m. there will be a meet and greet and family photo opportunity with Winnie the Pooh and friends on the lawn. The first 100 babies to arrive will even receive special Disney Baby Mickey Mouse ears!
The Disney Baby Store at The Americana at Brand is located at 889 Americana Way, Glendale, CA, 91210.
